Water Heater Tool

Is there a tool with a T handle to remove the water heater plug or do you just use a socket? I thought it would be nice/convenient to have a tool with a T handle to quickly remove it without getting out a socket and such. If you know of one, please provide a link. Thanks!

I use a socket as well. My neighbor claimed that his lug wrench would work for that plug, but I tested mine (a 4-way, not the one that came with the TT) and none of them were the right size.

It would be nice to have a small tool to stick in the bucket with my hoses and fittings that I could use. It's kind of a hassle to break out the socket set every time I want to drain the tank.

I just use pliers. It's a little tedious removing and tightening the plug, but it works for me.

Same here, being careful not to booger up the plug.

You looking for something like this? This was my Dads and I would say about 1950 is when he bought this. I have never looked for one but you try Snap on Tools for a start.

Water Heater Tool

I use a cheap ratchet w/ extension and a 1 1/16 socket. Keep it in my water box.

How about something like this:

http://http://www.amazon.com/Neiko-8...-handle+socket

Then you just get the appropriate size socket and you're in business. I wasn't looking all that hard, but I bet you could find a shorter t-handle socket wrench that would work even better. I know I use a 3" (IIRC) extension to get around the burner tube on mine, so this one might be a bit long...
