Properly Opened

As you can see the "dog" is at 12:00 as is the tapered cone/plug ear. The handle makes it look like it is not open but it really is. Don't go by the handle go by the dog, if it has one, or the cone/plug ear that the handle mounts to.

Proper opening can save some wear and tear on these valves.

other sizes: small medium original

I'm having difficulty getting the cone far enough into the body to align the dog washer and cone at the flat spot before tightening the dog washer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
