A mower gas tap is a really useful resource, it’s function to stop gas flow to the carburetor.
Especially useful during maintenance, transportation and when storing for prolonged periods. Unfortunately not all mowers have a tap fitted, although it is possible to fit a tap. This video shows you how to find your tap (if fitted) and how to use it.

Ratchet Tool Set
Before we can do anything, we'll need tools. I've selected this set as I own some Craftsman tools and while I have worn some out, they did do a lot of work. So I expect this set will last the occasional user quite a long time.
This set carries both metric and standard sockets and that's important, because some mowers will have both type of fastener sizes. Set includes spark plug sockets. Picture links to Amazon.com
