V500 Universal Ball Valve Lockout

PHOENIX, January 13, 2020 – ABUS released its latest safety device, the V500 Universal Ball Valve Lockout, created to virtually fit every valve handle size and shape. The V500 has an ergonomically shaped rotary handle which allows the device to adjust its size for lockout purposes.

Designed with metal housing, the V500 can endure harsh industrial environments. This feature allows facilities to focus on a safe lockout/tagout program for their employees and not worry about replacing devices which can be costly. The V500 has a large shaped surface that is rubberized on one side to fully grip the valve. 

“The V500 Universal Ball Valve device has a wide variety of uses, solving many problems where traditional LOTO devices just don’t work,” said Jon Smith, Director of Industrial Sales. “This device can be used in any application, where the cable can be installed counter to the movement required to change the position of the product being locked out. This includes valves, switches, handles, steering wheels and more.” 

This intuitive and user-friendly device can be locked out with one padlock or a Safelex™ Cable Lockout. The V500 Universal Ball Valve Lockout is available now for shipping.
