Low point drain valve problem

The valve on the low point drain is missing a retaining clip that prevents the T handle from being pulled completely out of valve body (which by the way causes a BIG mess when lines are full of water!)
Iíve tried searching all over the internet for these valves, I donít even know what theyíre called. So does anyone know what they are called? And also, can you just buy the retaining clip?
Thanks

I don't know what they are called, but I do remember seeing them at my local hardware store in a drawer with a lot of other miscellaneous hardware in different drawers.

Try Ace Hardware and in a pinch you could use a piece of wire.

A good old fashion hardware store that has parts bins, probably will have them. Bring in the one you have.

Dont waste your time going to Lowes, Home Depot, or Menards. They will not have it.

I personally hate those T valves. Sounds like a good time to change them out to something out more reliable and easy to use.

I’ve actually thought about doing that too. Like a nice ball valve.

I'd just replace them with "Shark-Bite" 1/4-turn, 1/2" PEX x 3/8" compression angled shut-off valves - like you'd use under a sink. Shut off the water source.
Looks like there's not much slack in the lines that feed the valves, so you'll probably have to remove the clamps from the lines. Once you've removed the feeder lines from the valves, pull the valves up a little so you can cut off the drain lines and let them fall through the trailer floor. Next, attach a standard 3/8" compression x 1/2" FPT x 12" long vinyl sink water line to each new shut-off valve. Cut off the 1/2" FPT fitting and discard it. Then push the cut end of the faucet line through the hole in the floor for each line. Push the "Shark-Bite" shut-off valves onto the PEX feeder lines. Fill the gap between the sides of the floor holes and the vinyl sink lines with a little "Great Stuff" or caulk and your done! EASY PEASY!

Sounds like this will be the easiest route and should last forever. I like it. Thanks!
