Copper service lines need maintenance and repairs, and a shut-off tool expedites the work. In response to customer requests, Reed Mfg.’s CSO1R copper shut-off tool now offers a detachable, ratchet handle and a heavy-duty storage case. The copper shut-off tool is easy to use since the ratchet handle can be positioned and then repositioned at the best advantage point for the operator. An included support handle can be attached in two different, perpendicular angles, as the job requires. The tool is lightweight at 10.5 pounds, but has a very strong frame. Its body casting is black chromate steel for superior tool strength. Two grease fittings for lubrication and a zinc-plated, threaded screw for corrosion-resistance are other durable features of the design. 800-666-3691;
