NIBCO hose bib valve stem handle


I have a 30+ year old NIBCO hose bib. I need to replace the metal handle. The diameter at the top of the valve stem is 5/16". There are 16 little sprockets on the top of the valve stem. Can anyone tell me where I can get an original handle? The generic replacement handles at the hardware stores don't fit. Thank you.

The "sprockets" is what is called a spline. You may need to go to a surplus shop or a demolition supply place.

What he said, but you might find a generic type at home or hardware stores. Generally you have to replace the bib.
