Tip Trader: Easier Water Shutoff

Handyman Club members share their home and workshop hints.

Easier Water Shutoff
To easily reach the water-shutoff valves beneath his bathroom sink, Club member Ronald Perkins of Durham, North Carolina, built this wrench from a 13-in.-long section of 1/8-in.-thick PVC pipe. He notched one end of the pipe to fit over the shutoff valve and inserted a 6-in.-long x 3/8-in.-dia. threaded rod through the other end to serve as the wrench’s handle.
