Viking Sprinkler Head Wrench 14031 is an installation and removal tool designed specifically for use with Viking Mirage concealed pendent fire sprinklers. This lightweight, light-duty socket wrench is designed for storage in spare sprinkler head cabinets (but may be used to install any compatible sprinkler head). Each usesa 1/2 in. ratchet (not included) to remove and replace various ceiling-mounted fire sprinklers.
Why do building owners need spare fire sprinkler wrenches?
Commercial sprinkler systems installed in accordance with NFPA 13 require anywhere between 6 and 24 spare sprinkler heads to be stored in a cabinet on-site. NFPA 13-compliant cabinets also require a supply of wrenches used to remove and replace existing heads. The Viking 14031 light-duty cabinet wrench fulfills this requirement for select Viking Mirage concealed pendent sprinklers.

How do I use the Viking 14031 Fire Sprinkler Wrench?
Always follow the instructions provided in the datasheet for your specific Viking-brand model. In general, installation takes the following steps:
- Remove the protective cap from the sprinkler head using a Viking-brand cap removal tool.
- Gently slide the wrench head around the sprinkler's body while carefully avoiding contact with the deflector, pins, and other fragile parts of the sprinkler head.
- Press the wrench upward and turn slightly to make sure that it grips the wrench flat, the section of the sprinkler's frame shaped to fit neatly inside the wrench.
- Twist the wrench until the sprinkler is finger-tight; then, rotate an additional 1 to 1 1/2 turns to fully secure the head.
