Reed Valve Keys are built for strength and durability. Upper shafts are made from heavy-gauge, mechanical steel tubing. Curb key ends are machined from solid steel. Valve keys have a telescoping design. When telescoped in, they are under 4 feet long and fit easily in small utility trucks, behind pickup seats, and in car trunks. When telescoped out, lengths of 5 feet to 7 feet are possible. VK10 reaches nearly 10 feet when fully extended. VKEXT shaft is available to extend the keys to over 12 feet. For greater control and versatility, a variety of tools can be used on the end of T handles to turn curb stops. Optional clip-on tools can be used to turn small valve wheels, curb box rods, pentagon bolts, and Buffalo box lids. Reed customers can choose valve keys according to the needs of their systems. The VKA45 is an adjustable valve key for mains with the curb key at a 45 degree angle. This angle provides a visual indication of a ball valve’s open or closed status. The handle lines up with the pipe when the valve is in the open position. The handle crosses the pipe (seeming perpendicular) with the valve in the closed position. VK916PENT fits gas company curb stops and lids with its 9/16” pentagon key. VKEXT is an extension bar with three positions that can be used on most Reed valve keys for up to 6 feet (1829 mm) of extra reach. VKKIT uses the VK3 upper shaft to create all VK2 and VK3 variations of valve keys.
