Who needs a fire sprinkler wrench?
Fire sprinkler wrenches allow contractors to install heads easily and without damaging the heads themselves. NFPA 13 also requires building owners to keep anywhere from 6 to 24 spare sprinkler heads on-site, as well as a supply of corresponding sprinkler head wrenches. Adhering to this requirement ensures that all necessary components are ready and available for the immediate removal and replacement of faulty or activated sprinkler heads.

How do I use the sprinkler head wrench?

- Remove the protective cap from the sprinkler head.
- Gently slide the wrench head around the sprinkler's body. Make sure that the wrench head grips the wrench flat, the section of the sprinkler's frame shaped to fit neatly inside the wrench.
