A Sigelock Spartan hydrant spotted in Franklin PA:
It’s certainly the shapeliest hydrant I’ve ever seen.
Of course, you need a special tool to remove the main cap, after which some internal lockwork releases the side caps, after which you can spin the valve stem recessed under the top cover. One hopes all those little bits continue sliding and releasing after a few decades, but … the status quo apparently isn’t all that good, either.
