"Had a leaking stopcock just inside my front door so needed to turn off the water supply in the pavement outside. It was stuck on as it hasn't been turned for 25 years that I know of. Didn't want to spend four times what this cost on the longer tool Screwfix also stock especially as I probably wont be here next time it needs turning. As it was a bit shorter I borrowed a socket set off my son to extend it and put some force behind it. So it worked, apart from the 14 mil socket thats now stuck on the end of it...ha ha ha."
"Had to turn the stop cocks in the middle of a garden 2 feet down under a man hole, full of water as usual ! A long one kept slipping off the tap, this version fits snug and is made with a strong hex bar allowing you to put a socket on the end and a ratchet or bar to get better turn on the tap - job sorted I like it !"
"This tool is too short for the normal outside stop tap, but this is perfect for helping the older generation have that extra bit of leverage to turn off stop taps buried at rear of cupboards, or behind toilets etc."
