Thread: outdoor faucet lock

  1. #1

    Default outdoor faucet lock

    Hello,

    Back in 2002, Ben posted a question regarding an outdoor faucet lock. My problem is similar; I really need a way to lock my outdoor water faucet WITHOUT removing the handle. I live in the desert, and water is a very precious - and expensive - commodity. Someone is using our water, and our consumption this past month more than doubled. I want to control access to the tap, and my husband wants to be able to use the tap quickly in case of a fire. Any ideas, folks?

    Find some Industrial Supply catalogs such as MSD or Grainger, or find them on the web. They have complete lines of OSHA compliant lock-out devices and such. You can find a thing that actually goes over the entire hose fitting that secures with a padlock. They even have ones for huge valves such as you would find in a factory setting.
