  • Cleanout Plug Wrenches ???

    Anyone ever have to use one of these on a cleanout plug ? Should I keep them in the van ?

          I would not waste the space . But then again I only have a 8 foot utility body truck.

            I've never seen that type before.

            I have a 4 spoked key that fits recessed CO plugs. Lets you get a wrench on it.

            But if it's an old plug and has never been off before, I usually end up having to hack or drill it out. Cast iron plugs are especially fun

            I don't think I'd ever have a use for those.

            Just my 2 cents

                Looks like it is missing the Handel or maybe an impact adaptor I have never seen one I use a multi. spud wrench my self with PB Max. But I would like something with an impact wrench I could put on. Maybe that was made for an adaptor.

                  if a wrench won't get them off I just chip them out of the way.

                    Sometimes that's next to impossible

                      I keep a 3/4" 12pt socket set on the van. Will get most raised square head ones. Welded a piece of flat steel to a big nut for those ones with the slot. Hammer and cold chisel for the rest.
                      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                        I used to use a chisel but now I use a makita 4" grinder with cheap diamond blade and cut to near the threads, it just pops out, real fast.

                          I ended up not putting them on the van. Had a call yesterday at a former Sentry super market and could have used the larger one on a gray plastic cleanout plug in the mens can.

                          I know I'll never see another as long as I live but I'm putting them in the van

                            I think they would be more effective than than what I use. The back of a crescent wrench turning it with channel locks. Of course the hammer and chisel after that fails.

                            Is that something ridgid sells?

                            I don't need it often so I always forget to look for something like that. I would definitely keep that on my van.
