Tap and knob turners

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.
