The Hose Bibb Lockout (Water Faucet Lock, or spigot lock) is a hose bibb locking system comprised of two parts, a threaded section with a rotating flange, and a smooth cover with a slot for the flange. The rotating flange has a hole to accept the lock. To lock a hose, screw the threaded section onto the hose bibb (faucet), place the cover over top with the flange on the threaded section protruding through the slot of the smooth section, and place your lock through the hole. The lock now prevents removal of the smooth section. At this point, when the smooth section is rotated, it only turns the rotating flange of the threaded section; consequently, the threaded section cannot be removed without removing the lock.
