"Nozzle Wrench" Keeps Irrigators Dry
If you try to unplug an irrigation nozzle with a conventional wrench, the pressure inside the line can create a drenching spray. Worse yet, it can force the nozzle off the wrench as you remove it. The only way to solve the problem is to stop the flow of water by shutting off the pump.
  Pat Briley decided there had to be a better way, so he designed a special wrench he calls the Nozzle Master. It's a 5-in. long tool that has a hollow tube, allowing water to flow through it as it's being used. The wrench is designed to grip and remove the old nozzle and also to put in a new one. It has a slotted base and a socket-shaped head with an O-ring in it. The slotted base is used to loosen the nozzle. Then you place the wrench's head over the nozzle to remove it.
  You use the slotted base end of the wrench to screw in the new nozzle. The wrench is made from zinc-plated steel tubing and weighs 15 oz.
  Sells for $25.95 plus $5 S&H.
