The orange head pushes in and locks so you can screw/unscrew it into something. If it is not pushed in, the orange head spins freely. May go to a husqvarna tractor or ariens snowblower. smiley-confused013.gif

Looks like a breather. Its neat that it has the safety on the cap for un screwing.

It is a hardhat for a liberal. It screws on so they wont loose their head and is it tiny so it fits their brain snugly.

Tried googling breather and nothing really came up.  It has a hole in the side of the threads, and an o-ring to seal whatever it screws into.  Any more ideas?

What does the other side look like? It could be a spray head but not sure from this angle.

Is the hole in the inside all the way?  A screen in it??

Whatever it goes to has pressure hence o ring and hole in side. So when you unscrew the cap the small hole relieves pressure slowly.

Sorry guys, no numbers as I am asking this for a friend.  He just sent me the picture.  I am assuming the hole in the threads is only on one side.

Almost looks like it is the adjustment knob for something that has pressure.We have something similar at work were you turn a key it has tension on to adjust pressure.Turn the key the other way it spins freely and does nothing.I've never seen that particular knob though.

That is a pressure washer spray nozzle, or a liberal hardhat.

Seeing how it's well made, I think it's a pressure relief valve of some type, but for what, I don't know.

Don't you just hate it when you know you have seen something like that and can't remember where??

Seems like I have seen those in Plumbers tool boxes?
