Locking Mechanism

Tamper Resistant Faucet Handle

US Patent 5,971,354

The Tamper Resistant Faucet Handle provides a means for locking conventional sink and bathroom faucets in an open or closed position. This invention is useful for preventing unauthorized use of a faucet, and is especially well-suited for protecting children from scalding by hot water. By using a two hand operated locking mechanism, access to the operation of the faucet is controlled. When employed on a dual handle faucet, hot water access can be locked out while still providing access to cold water.
