    Pics from "clogged nozzles" work order today. No filters and the zone has 81 spray pop-ups ranging from 15-footers to side strips. 10-footers at end of zone are lucky if they reach 4'. :dizzy:

    Me wonders what they are going to do without you to fix all the ****ups.

    The in-laws left this afternoon, SWMBO should have time over the weekend to get them downloaded.

    We have about 8 pairs each in our different nozzle boxes and tool buckets. These pullup/holdup tools, VOMs and Falcon high speed rotors are about the only thing Rainbird that we use. :)

    You got a pic of the pliers alone? Or maybe one with the pliers in action on a head NOT installed? Don't think I've see them before. But I suspect there's a thread here about them that got "involved".

    They're basically spring loaded... kinda like e-clip pliers. Here's a pic from Rainbird's web site.
