Thread: Sillcock Key

    Default Sillcock Key

    This should be in every bugout and gethome bag. The sillcock key could give you hundreds of gallons of drinkable water from buildings over 1 story. Look it up on Amazon. A $5.00 key to saving your life!

    Most schools and corporate buildings use these. Great idea and post.

    I have one but just bought 2 more. I occasionally need one for work.

    We have a whole thread on these somewhere. Didn't have anything to do with chickens though.

    It's a good idea, I got one for each of our MAG members for Christmas this year. Everyone instantly knew what they were and all were amazed they hadn't thought of this for their BOB themselves. It was a real hit!

    No kidding, nice find. amazing that sometimes the simple things get by you.

    Friggin' genius! Got two! Thanks for the tip, Wyatte. When I do community garden work in and around the various elementary, middle, and high school buildings I am constantly frustrated with those damn spigots. Never clicked until now that I could get my own key! Thanks for the light bulb moment! I've really pissed off the administrators and principals when I cut into their down spouts and installed rain barrels to by-pass their 'security'. At least now I'll have a way to hook up a hose and water stuff in and I can get water from just about any commercial building should the need arise. Thanks again.

    Wish I could take credit, it was in a book I just read. Fiction, but lots of survival tips.
