Garden hose faucet wrench

Page 1 of 2  
I'm writing an estimate for a job where I'll need to connect to garden hose faucets. Commercial buildings, some have 1/4 inch valve stem, most have 5/16, and one had 3/8 square valve stem.
The five dollar wrench set from Harbor Freight has some eight point sockets that should work the garden hose faucet stem.
I already own a couple "four way" faucet keys, but the unused ends get too close to the hose threads. I'd rather had a socket I can put on a ratchet wrench.
Any thing out there like this?

After getting zero replies on AHR, I did a search on Ebay. Will be happy to report on that, if anyone asks.

I searched on ebay and the web, and only came up with the cris-cross quad, and single keys with a big "t" portion. What did you find?

Someone listed two very old single keys. I bought it now. Tried em yesterday, they do the job nicely.
The quad wrench "four way faucet key" I had wasn't suited, as it didn't have 3/8. It was also hitting on the spigot.
Will try them on the job some time.

so, did what you buy have to top "tee" to let you get some leverage? Is that smaller than the four way key, so it won't hit the wall?

The problem that sent me searching, is that the four way faucet key got too close to the hose threads on the outdoor assembly. I wanted some thing where the handle was a couple inches away from the valve stem. The items I got off Ebay were longer, and so the turn handle is away from the hose threads.

I see you're back to your same old crap of starting a brand new thread beginning with "Re:" aren't you?
Come on, get with the program.

I don't consider follow up to be "starting a brand new thread". It notifies the gentle reader that there is new information in the thread. New thread would be for example if I changed the subject line to "Ebay find!"
Not sure what is the cause of your OCD, but please point it some other direction.

We have pointed out in the past that when you add Re: to your subject lines, some newsreaders do not recognize the post as part of the original thread.
This is not your fault per-se, but it is a reality and it makes it hard for some gentle readers to follow the thread.
One solution would be for you to gently suggest that the folks who are experiencing the problem switch to a newsreader that does not exhibit this issue.
Another solution would be for you to be kind and not alter the subject line of your threads so that all newsreaders will maintain the cohesiveness of the thread.
Which solution you choose is obviously your choice, but I would like to point out that the vast majority of usenet users do not add Re: to their subject lines and therefore do not impact the gentle readers of their threads.

There is a third solution: just forget about it and tell any whiners to bugger off.

Please trim excess text (I did it for you). I can't remember. Bugger off.
Hey, that's a new one. I may be developing new skills which I can use in various contexts. "Hello, this is ABC company. Bugger off." New telephone greeting.
Honest, officer, I wasn't speeding! Now, bugger off.
This is going to be as much fun as the Hawaiian salute.

There is a certain simplicity to your idea. Actually, I rather like it.

Frankly, I'd rather modify the subject line to keep it relevant, and risk losing a reader or two.
Usenet reader lives don't much matter to me.

Seemed sensible to make that conclusion.

Not by any measure except maybe obama's or hillary's. Hmmm.
