This is the knob you need if you have older Eastman shutoff valves that require multiple turns to open/close (unlike the new ones which I understand open/close in a quarter turn). One of the big home centers didn't offer this. The other one (think orange) had a generic replacement sized for a larger shaft with different splines. Oh, and that online source that carries all kinds of stuff? Someone on there was selling this same knob for $13. Lastly, the local plumbing supply didn't have this and sent me to--guess where--- the home centers. So kudos to Faucets Complete for having EXACTLY what I needed at a totally reasonably price. By the way, I needed the knob because I bent the original trying to loosen it with pliers. Not good. Hopefully Faucets Complete won't mind me mentioning that a simple but (I wish I'd thought of that) clever tool called the Gordon Wrench will prevent me from doing any damage in the future when trying to free and close a stuck valve with these hard to grip ovoid handles. Even so, given the low price I made sure to buy a few spares.
