Help Me ID These

Took these off the boat a few years ago when clearing out the drawers etc.

Now cleaning out the spaces in the house and came across them again.

They are like valve on/off levers but clearly not since they are angled and no holes for the stem and bolts that go with fuel or other valves.

I have never needed them in the last four seasons but don't want to toss them - just in case.

Any ideas?

Throw them away and immediately you will figure out what they do and you will need them to do that the next day...

I'm with kchace. I had one on my boat too, until it got all rusty. They do offer more leverage than the typical key-chain size deck fill lever. But if you don't tighten the fills too much, you don't need that leverage.

Not sure what you mean, my deck fills are flush with two holes for the plug type lever? And why would they be marked on/off if they were for a deck fill which is always clockwise for closed, anti-clockwise for open?

Deck fills on my boat also have a slot. The levers pictured were originally a valve handle, with the end cut off and bent to T shape.

They look like ball valve handles that someone cut off.

There is no sign of a cut on ether of them, they seemed to have been made this way. Plus the angled ends are not usual for a ball valve?

No thoughts on the logo - two triangles and the S swoosh?
