Rubber Pads for the Original/Standard Shutgun

These replacement rubber pads repair the jaws of an original (or standard) Shutgun fire sprinkler shutoff tool. In order to reuse a Shutgun, which stops discharge from fire sprinkler heads, each part of the mechanism must be properly maintained. When the rubber pads that grip a fire sprinkler head show signs of wear, these two replacement pads can provide a suitable replacement.

The pads are designed for use with standard Shutgun models, which are compatible with the following fire sprinkler types:

  • Pendent fire sprinklers
  • Upright fire sprinlers
  • Sidewall fire sprinklers

However, these models are designed only for use with sprinklers that aren’t hidden behind a cover plate (concealed), sheared, or fully recessed.

What is a Shutgun?

Shutgun is a fire sprinkler shut off tool originally created to stop discharge from 1/2″ NPT sprinkler heads. These fire sprinkler stopper clamps are equipped with a fusible link thermal element that activates at 164F (73C), keeping a fire sprinkler system operational until a replacement is installed.

QRFS offers four Shutgun-brand fire sprinkler shutoff tools—and a complete kit that contains all four:

Shutgun’s design allows for the closure of a wide range of sprinklers, including semi-recessed, pendent, horizontal sidewall, & upright fire sprinklers. Without a fire sprinkler stopper, sprinkler discharge can only be stopped at the main valve or a local shutoff valve. Fire code may require personnel to patrol the building or even evacuate until the broken head is replaced.

Shutgun stops water damage caused by accidental fire sprinkler discharge: vandalism, human error, and industrial accidents can lead to mold, mildew, damaged carpets, and a host of other expensive issues. This fire sprinkler shutoff device is a must-have tool for contractors, movers, painters, cleaners, and anybody who works in close proximity to fire sprinklers.

How do I repair a Shutgun with these parts?

Adding replacement rubber pads to an original Shutgun is easy. Simply:

  • Remove old rubber pads
  • Ensure the surface is clean and free of damage
  • Push on the new pads
