Is an adjustable gate valve lockout better compared to regular gate valve lockouts?
Not necessarily. Even though adjustable gate valve lockouts offer flexibility because of its design, it doesn’t mean that it can accommodate any types of gate valve handles. At most, TRADESAE adjustable gate valve lockout can only accommodate valve handles with a diameter of 6-½ inches. Any valve handle that’s bigger than this should use a gate valve lockout that can accommodate the handle’s size. Not using the appropriate lockout device may render the lockout ineffective.
