|About the product
Rod keys are used for operating a service box rod, typically in a rod or Erie style rod box. Our standard rod ends are 15/16" round with a 3/8" machined slot. We also stock keys that have 1"round ends with a 1/2" machined slot. Standard 15/16 ends are supplied unless 1" is specified. Shaft and 18" handle are 5/8 round hot rolled steel. NOTE: FOR UPS & FEDEX GROUND, Large package surcharge alone, for ups is over $70.00. An 8 ft rod key is over sized. We offer most wrenches with a removable handle,to save you on the Large Package surcharge,and for ease of shipping. Simply add the letters RH to the end of the item number for a Removable Handle Wrench. RH handles are 1/2" sch 40 pipe x 18" long. Heavy wall DOM seamless tubing is welded to the top of the shaft to accept the handle which is locked in place with a hardened cup point set screw .it's just like being welded when the set screw is tightened. Try it and save on freight costs.
