Handy Tool Kit Series – Meter Pull Key

Lamar-Hunt-Jr.-Meter-Pull-e1350875086859-300x236Picture this:  water is leaking from one of your units and you run out to pull the meter cover but you can’t get the cover off.  The reason may be your lack of a meter pull key.  Founder/Managing Partner Lamar Hunt Jr. never wants to be caught in that situation.  The damage from water is just too huge.  You may also find that you or your contractors need to make a repair and the water needs to be turned off.  Having a meter pull key makes that possible.  Of course, most contractors carry one but just in case you run into an emergency, it’s a small price to pay for a shot at cutting off the water at the main.  To use it, simply insert the key into slot and twist or turn the key in one direction and pull upwards until the lid comes free.  Be careful of the lid because it can be heavy and injure your fingers or toes.  Make sure you take the key out of the slot before it sprouts legs and walks off.  That way, you will have the key available to put the lid back when you are finished.  These keys cost under ten bucks so save yourself some big bucks and buy a meter pull key.  For more real estate tips, see our blog at http://lorettoproperties.com/.  You can also call us at 913-236-2902 if you have a property to sell.
