Why A Sillcock Key Is The Secret to Survival

Why A Sillcock Key Is The Secret to Survival

 

Although not specifically designed for survival situations, a sillcock key is a handy item to have in your bug-out bag. Widely used by plumbers, contractors, and engineers, it’s a simple device used to open tamper-resistant sillcocks and hose bibs.

You’ll find these outdoor water faucets on almost every residential, commercial, and industrial building.

Also known as hose bibs, spigots, and valves, sillcocks are external water supplies that you can attach a hose to or use to access water outside. Even if the power is off, there will still be water in the pipes. For any self-respecting prepper, that means a vital step towards survival.

While the sillcock valve on your house probably has a lever or handle to control the flow and turn the water on and off, these are often removed from commercial and industrial buildings to prevent theft and vandalism.

Definitely one of the most practical pieces of kit you can have in your BOB!
