Hose bib

What is the part called that an outdoor faucet handle fits over. My faucet is winged with a screw in the middle. Having a hard time finding a replacement.

You mean you lost the handle to your faucet?
Take one off your neighbors.
Just kidding.
Talk to Lowes.

Replace hose bibb.
Replacing hose bibb yourself with threaded connection seven Dollars,
Having to call the plumber for the soldered connection price less.

Experience is Knowing what to do next, Skill is knowing how to do it
