Quickstop is currently out of stock until September 2021. You may still order the Quickstop and will receive it once the stock arrives. If you would like to be added to the backorder list for a Quickstop without placing an order, please call us at 888-361-6662.
The Quickstop Commercial Fire Sprinkler Tool stops water from activated fire sprinklers. It can shut off ½” and ¾” sprinkler heads, whether they are damaged or totally sheared off, and works on upright, pendant, and sidewall sprinklers—including recessed heads. Each Quickstop has a fusible link that detaches at 250F to keep a broken sprinkler working in case of a fire.
- The only multi-purpose tool that works on sprinklers with broken bulbs or links or damaged frames—even when the head is completely sheared off!
- A single tool can be used on pendent, upright, and sidewall sprinklers, including recessed heads
- Quickstop provides a water-tight seal up to 2400 KPA or 350 PSI
- A built-in fusible link detaches at 250F, making the Quickstop a temporary sprinkler replacement
- Simple to use and requires no specialized training—a sprinkler shuts off with a one-handed squeeze
- It can be connected to an adjustable extension pole offering 6 1/2 to 12 feet of additional reach

It’s simple and easy. Using the alignment attachment, place one jaw around the threaded base of the sprinkler. Then crimp the other jaw (with the rubber seal) shut by squeezing the handle. A bolt can be tightened or loosened to adjust the seal on the sprinkler, and a quick-release arm allows you to instantly detach the Quickstop.

Yes! Simply pull any drywall or push up a drop ceiling around the sprinkler, remove the escutcheon by gently pulling it away, place the talon onto the head, and squeeze the handle to crimp it shut. Watch this video for a demonstration:
The short answer is yes—temporarily. Quickstop serves as an interim fire sprinkler because it has a fusible link that melts away at 250F, letting the water flow again onto a fire. Be sure to check with your local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ; usually, the local fire marshal) to determine if the temperature requirements are appropriate. If you leave Quickstop in place for a long time, however, it will eventually lead to flooding. Replace the damaged head as soon as possible and follow all local fire code requirements for reporting system deficiencies.
If it’s applied correctly, it shouldn’t. Quickstop creates a water-tight seal while handling pressures up to 350 PSI (2400 KPA), and most sprinkler systems operate at a fraction of that number. In fact, 5-year hydrostatic tests of commercial sprinkler systems that check for leaks are done at “200 psi (13.8 bar) pressure for 2 hours, or at 50 psi (3.4 bar) in excess of the maximum pressure, where maximum pressure is in excess of 150 psi.” (NFPA 25)
Maintenance is minimal. After each use, dry the tool and spray it with a light coating of lubricant (WD-40). That’s it!
