Viking Sprinkler Head Wrench | 13619

Viking Sprinkler Head Wrench 13619 is an installation and removal tool designed specifically for use with Viking residential 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 uses a 1/2″ 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 13619 light-duty cabinet wrench fulfills this requirement for select residential concealed pendent sprinklers.

Is this wrench compatible with my sprinkler head?

Viking 13619 Sprinkler Head Wrench can install or remove the following concealed fire sprinklers from Viking:

  • VK456
  • VK457
  • VK474
  • VK488

How do I use the Viking 13619 Fire Sprinkler Wrench?

Always follow the instructions provided in the datasheet for your specific Viking-brand model. In general, installation takes the following steps:

  1. Remove the protective cap from the sprinkler head using a Viking-brand cap removal tool.
  2. 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.
  3. Press the wrench upward to make sure that it grips the “wrench flats”—the section of the sprinkler’s frame shaped to fit neatly inside the wrench.
  4. Twist the ratchet until the sprinkler head is firmly attached to the piping.
