Questions & Answers

Can you tell me the size of the bigger socket? In which socket are you most likely to find it?

There are one large and one small sockets. Any two points should be at least 12 inches apart. There is one small one among them. I am 93 inches tall. I think we have a similar system here in Canada. It is more common to find one in 93.

One of the pentagon sockets has a flat about 1/2" long. How long is the flat?

About 1/2" in diameter. The sockets have five sides, with the larger one being larger. In addition to measuring in inches, I measured There are five sides to the smaller socket, and each measure 9/16" and 14 mm in length. This larger socket had a diameter of 11/16" and a height of 108 degrees are the angles between each of the five sides In the case of n = 5, 2))/n).

Can this be used with the curb water meters on Long Island, New York?

Since we live in Indianapolis, IN, I have no idea how it would work in New York. I used it in our residential area for water meters from the city

It is NOT Mueller who goes to Standard and Ford
4/5

While I wanted to wait until I had a chance to use this tool, Amazon's delayed processing of my correction to the description made me impatient. It appears Amazon is using the same verbatim description from Reed for this tool's entire product line. According to the Reed web site, the MKF2 (this tool) has only bolt heads for "standard waterworks" and "large Ford. " You will need a Reed type turning machine if you need to turn a "large Mueller".

1/2 inch is NOT the standard unit of measurement
3/5

This won't fit in the curb box I have. The return of this product will bring me closer to getting kicked off Amazon if I make ordered the wrong size phone case while ordering my new one. To be fair, I searched for a Samsung S5 case and assumed all the options were specific to that size. But I guess the company included a Samsung S6 in the search results just to waste my time. That being said, let's move on. )

I think this key could be a good one if it wasn't so.

I needed to replace the water valve on my car
5/5

Because I broke the main when I tried to loosen the hose, I wasn't able to turn off the water, because the main required a special wrench that could only be obtained from that special As a result of this special wrench, I can now shut off the water.

This is a great tool to have when you need it! In case we ever need to shut off our water at the street, this water meter key would come in handy
5/5

As soon as I tried the key, I immediately realized it didn't work. I tested it, and it worked. There was a really good feel to it and it was well constructed. The just-in-case protection is an asset I'm glad we have, but I hope we don't need it Case in point.

This appears to be a very sturdy piece! It was just what we needed to take the lid off the city water shut off in case of an emergency at the street
5/5

There has been a need for one in the past and now This is the just in case tool in case I didn't have it. Now the preparations are complete! The only reason why I didn't rate it as 5 stars for durability is that I've had it only There is no way to know how long it will last, but it seems promising.

The key to my water company is easier to borrow than mine! The lock was installed by the water company in my area
5/5

In order to check if I have water problems, they asked that I drive out to their location, put down a deposit of $20, return home, check the meter, then drive back to return the tool and get my money The hell with that! The benefit of checking anytime I want is that I don't have to think about it.

The product is what was advertised
5/5

Like it a lot. It is 90 percent of the time that the pit key can grab the nut of the pit cover when I replace the water meters. Having this new one is so much better than the one I had before. This holds up well even after going over the top of it with a 24" pipe wrench in order to get leverage to open those old, rusty pit covers. The music is great. The product does what it is supposed to and it is very robust. I'm in love.
