Valve key sockets can securely grip worn valve nuts


Lowell Corporation’s new Valve Key Sockets can help utility workers solve the problem of valve nuts that have become rounded or corroded. When attached to a valve key (not included), the sockets can easily and securely grip valve nuts in the toughest environments.

Each Lowell socket kit comprises three valve key sockets, small. medium, and large, and the hardware for connecting each socket to a valve key. All sockets are made of rugged, zinc-plated, hardened steel and all are a high-visibility yellow color to make locating them easier during low light conditions. A durable carrying case houses all components. The price is $189.50.
    Operation is simple. First a worker attaches the correct socket to a valve key with the screw and attachment plate included in the kit. Once the socket is positioned onto the valve nut, the worker firmly hammers the top of the valve key to force the socket onto the nut and secure it. The worker can then open or close the value as normal.
    There are several benefits of the new sockets. Each socket  is compact, as is the carrying case for the set, which makes storage convenient. The simple but rugged construction requires little maintenance. And because these are tools dedicated to a single purpose,  they are less likely to be stolen than multiple use tools.
