Help Identifying/Locating Hose Bib Handle Replacement
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello. First time post on this forum.

Need a little help with what is probably a silly question.

One of the outdoor hose bibs on my home has a broken handle. Figured I'd go to my local hardware store, spend $1.59, and be done with it. Unfortunately, I seem to require an oddly shaped handle (where the handle mounts to the valve) that nobody has ever seen before. I've looked at all my local hardware stores, searched the great world wide web, as well as this forum.

I'm attaching a couple pics. Have you guys seen this specific handle? I only want to replace the handle. Don't care too much about style/shape/color, as long as it mounts properly and gets the job done.

Thanks a lot, guys. Have a good one.

Yeah, could replace the bib. Not worth it though. Just want to replace the handle. Sure seems like it should be a 30 second job, and cost me less than $2. Oh well. Have a good weekend, guys.

I have the same problem!
 
I too have looked all over the place for the same kind of handle. Did you have any luck?
