|About the product
Our Curb keys are normally used in curb boxes such as the 2 1/2" or 3" Buffalo style 2 piece box,or curb boxes of similar design. The curb end on the wrench goes directly onto the "T" Head of the curb stop. It can also be used on meter valves such as in a meter pit. The shaft and 18" Handle are 1/2" SCH 40 pipe. Standard curb end is 1 1/4" RD steel with machined 5/8" wide slot, 5/8" deep. These fit most newer sized curb stops up to 2". We also offer a large curb end machined from solid 1 3/4" RD steel with a 3/4 slot, for an additional charge. Standard 1 1/4" Curb end is supplied unless 1 3/4 is specified. Solid shaft keys are also available upon request.Overall length is plus or minus 1 inch.
For 8ft keys or multiples of 7ft and 6ft keys , please order with removable handles.
Our 8ft Removable handle keys are 95" overall length which keeps them under the 96" maximum for the UPS Large Package Surcharge.
We now offer curb keys with a removeable handle for ease of shipping, and to bypass UPS and FED EXP Large Package Fees. Large package costs alone are well over $90.00. Save on LP costs by simply adding the letters RH to the end of any item number, for a removeable handle key. An additional fee applies for the removable handle. The removeable handle mounting sleeve, which is heavy wall DOM seamless steel tubing,is welded to the top and side of the shaft,and has a snap pin to firmly lock the handle in place. Try it on your long keys and save alot on freight costs! Any key over 96" in overall lenght,or over 130" in length and girth combined is considered a Large Package Surcharge. Any keys over 96", must be 2- piece for shipping ups, or you must pay the LPS up to 108" overall lenghth. UPS Additional handling fees apply when over 48" or not in a carton.
