    A floor plate will indeed work if the valve is in the wall.

    Can a valve be installed outside facing up? It seems that water or debris could cause some sort of an issue?
    1 Answer
    You can indeed install one upward, as the key normally pushes out any water that can build up. You will want to make sure, in an outdoor application, that you're using a stainless steel valve assembly.

    How can I tell what type of key is appropriate?

    You will want to measure the hole in the plate that the key will enter and match the key up accordingly.

    I have a fireplace valve in my floor, 6 inches from fireplace. I have had a new carpet installed and they covered it over. Is it an issue to leave it covered?
    1 Answer
    It will absolutely be an issue if the manual valve has been covered, as this has to be accessible in the event of an emergency.

    from Hammond, IN asked:
    November 27, 2013
    Should the keyed valve on a brand new gas fireplace installation be a ball or globe valve?
    1 Answer
    Either can be used and they have their own unique advantages and disadvantages. A ball valve is easy to turn on and off, as it only has a 1/4 turn effort, but it is not ideal for trying to control gas flow to a fireplace, as there is little adjustment and they tend to whistle. A globe valve is able to be adjusted for flow, as it takes 5 to 6 turns from fully open to fully closed. However, this can be tiresome if you are only using the valve as an on/off shutoff. Globe valves also tend to wear out more quickly than ball valves.

    from Los Angelos, CA asked:
    September 4, 2013
    Is there an extender available for our recessed gas valve?
    1 Answer
    This is a common issue that we run into with recessed gas valves, an unfortunately, there is not an extension sleeve that is made for this purpose. However, most gas valves use a standard 3/4 N.P.T. pattern and a male to female adapter in this size can be used to extend and connect the valve and cover.

    Can I safely remove my valve floor plate myself?
    1 Answer
    The floor plate/escutcheon is a purely decorative piece that can be unthreaded and then rethreaded without an issue. It has no direct contact with the seal in the gas valve, so a gas leak will not be an issue.
