This section includes equipment to assist with turning taps and knobs.
Tap turners are suitable for wash basin and bath taps. Most types of tap turners are designed for a specific tap head type but some can be used on a range. As they are colour-coded for hot and cold water they can be useful for people who are partially sighted or to increase safety awareness.
Knob turners have spring-loaded pins which, when pushed against a contoured knob, retract and form a grip. They have an extended handle which can be used in either hand, to make it easier to turn a knob.
