Rain Bird PTC1 Spray Head Pull-Up Tool for Pop-Up Sprinklers. Finally a tool that simplifies and speeds-up maintenance of pop-up lawn sprinklers. Easy to use tool pulls pop-up sprinkler stem upwards and prevents it from retracting while you work on maintenance or replacement of spray nozzles. Ever noticed how difficult it is to change or install nozzles and how easily a wet stem can quickly disappear back into the spray body. Once the stem accidentally slips and retracts back into the sprinkler body, you have no option but to completely disassemble the spray head to reattach the nozzle. That frustrating and time-consuming exercise is completely eliminated with this handy tool. Easy to use instructions: (1) insert flanged flat metal tips into nozzle assembly, squeeze handles and lift to pull stem up and out of sprinkler body (2) now hold stem by hand and squeeze handles to open jaws (3) position jaws around stem (4) release handles and tool firmly holds stem in a fully extended position. You’re now free to work with both hands without worry of stem retracting back into spray body. Tool is adjustable for width of opening by simply tightening or loosening screw on handle by hand. Works with all brands of pop-up irrigation sprinklers. Corrosion-resistant metal with comfortable vinyl handle covering. Rain Bird The Intelligent Use of Water.

Yes.... it will make the job much easier.
Will this tool work to pull up Rainbird rotor popup stem. Particularly the 42SA+???
Asked by Bruce December 5, 2015
Yes. I used it on the 32sa yesterday. So, it works on the 42sa as well.
Using this tool lets me service the pop ups in my irrigation system with out turning on the water to raise the sprinkler. The plier then holds the sprinkler up by grasping with spring loaded tension. No more getting wet!
