    Default Old Gas Shut-off for Appliances

    Around these here parts....Over the last few years, I've had several HVAC techs & plumbers tell me that the old tang gas shut-offs that require a tool to operate must be replaced with hand operable shut-offs anytime a gas appliance is replaced. But recently, one of our AHJs told me that it was a good idea, but not required. I tried to find some mention of it in the IRC but cannot. G2420 covers locations of shut-offs and access, but I don't see any comment on whether the valve requires a tool or hand to operate it.
    Am I missing something?

    May be addressed in one of the standard referenced in G2420 for gas valves, but you would need the standards to find out.
