I Need a Tool To Remove 3" PVC Pipe Caps

I need a tool that will fit the square hole in a 3" PVC pipe cap. The cap has male threads and the diameter of the cap is 3.25".

Where can I buy such a tool?

Without having one in front of me to reference - would a 3/4" ratchet/extension fit? Normally they aren't screwed on that tight, could you get it started turning with a screwdriver and hammer? or maybe pliers inserted in the hole spread out and use it as a handle to turn it.

You can get the wrenches on the internet, from plumbing suppliers and some home centers. Try searching for "plug wrench" or "pipe cap wrench".

I would think an adjustable pin spanner wrench would work in a pinch.

Depends how tight it is I suppose, but I've improvised with a piece of flat stock

Cut a piece of wood to fit the hole and turn with a wrench.

Yes, the tool from Walmart is what I'm looking for. I'll probably order the cheaper one ($14) as it will be a one-time-use tool.
