Product Details

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.
  • Pulls up and then holds a spray head stem to keep it from retracting

Q:will this device work with the larger diameter 5000 series units?
by|Jul 21, 2017
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  No, it is designed for any pop up spray.

by|Aug 1, 2017

    A:  No I made the same mistake it’s only for the smaller size.

    by|Jul 16, 2020

    A:  I used it on a Tora popup which has about a 1" diameter popup. I don't believe that it will open up enough for the wider diameters

    by|May 30, 2018

    A:  Not sure. I do not think so.

    by|Aug 5, 2020

    A:  The 5000 series are rotors. This tool does not open wide enough for rotors. It is only for non-rotor pop-up sprinklers.

    Q:Will this tool work if the nozzle is broken or missing?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes.... it will make the job much easier.

    by|Aug 1, 2017

      A:  If it is missing I would say no because there is nothing to grap onto. If its broken, it would depend on how much of the nozzle is left for the tool to grap

      by|Sep 9, 2022

        A:  Probably not. You'll either have to unscrew the top housing (cap) to thread new nozzle onto the riser ( Note: when unscrewing cap be sure NOT to unscrew the body from the inlet) or dig the whole thing up and replace entire unit.

          A:  It probably wouldn't be of much help to pull up the shaft, but once you get the shaft pulled up, it will perform its second function, to clip onto the shaft to keep it from springing back into the body of the sprinkler. It's designed to grab onto the nozzle.

          by|Aug 18, 2020
            2 found this answer helpful

            A:  This tool can be used to pull up the shaft of the sprinkler. Then you would be able to grab it with your hand and clamp the tool around the base to hold it while you screw a nozzle onto the top. If the threads are damaged this will not be able to fix that issue though.

              Answer This Question

              A:  It seems to be universally adaptable to most popup heads

              by|Apr 19, 2017

                A:  Yes. I used it on the 32sa yesterday. So, it works on the 42sa as well.

                by|Oct 14, 2022

                  A:  I use rainbird sprinklers and it works on those. However, I don't know if they are the 42SA you mentioned

                  by|Jul 11, 2017

                    A:  yes and very well

                    by|Apr 7, 2017

                      A:  not really.

                      Good idea
                      You don't realize you need these until you use them the first time. I should have bought this item years ago.
