The Safe-T-Stopper is specifically designed to allow for open-gut, pipe tees, street tees and No Blow service tee stopping or tee removal without the hazardous release of natural gas.
10 to 15-minute operation.
How does it work?
- The tool attaches a ball valve on top of the tee and creates a seal under the cap or around the plug.
- Remove the cap or plug.
- To stop the gas:
- Option 1 – Insert rubber stopper below the branch.
- Option 2 – Screw-in a self-tapping plug into the main at the base of the tee.
The tee can now be abandoned or renewed according to company procedures.
It’s that easy!
