 hose bib handle
Author: sum (FL)

I have an older hose bib that has a rusted and broken handle.

It needs a handle that is kind of round with two flats on the side, like this.



I have mostly gone with quarter turn bibs but the older style handles I have some that fits a square knob, or some that is round with ridges, like these.



Are the rounded ones with flats common handles? I didn't see any at big box stores. Thought I would ask here before I toss it out.

If you can't find one just change out the bib.
