The tool has multiple uses, but it’s most important is shutting off the water of a running or damaged sprinkler head at the proper time.  Quickstop will save thousands of gallons of water as well as well as countless dollars in property damage.

The Quicktop is currently in use in over 1,000 fire departments as well as in 8 countries.  This tool is not just for firefighters if you live in a condo or own a business and a sprinkler head is accidentally damaged or set off this tool will stop the water.  If you can operate a vice grip you can operate a QuickStop.
