Shut Off Valves on Fuel Filter Lines

I once saw a Country Coach with 90 deg. fittings on the primary fuel filter which were also on/off valves for changing the filter and not flooding fuel.
They had a screw driver shot to turn them on/off.
Does anyone have knowledge of these - like - where can I buy them?
Has anyone put other type valves in the fuel line?

I had valves installed on my '98 Alpine. They were ball valves like for a gas line. They worked great.

The old type valve used to be available from Mcmasters-Carr by ball valves can be bought at any Hardware store/Home Depot/Lowes

No more fuel spills when changing fuel filter.

Shut off valves on fuel filter lines

How do you plan to stop off the fuel from running out the lines while you arew installing the valves?

I put 6" blocks under the rear HWH Jacks and nothing under the front. Jack up the rear end until the frame (and fuel line) are out of level toward the front. When you remove the fuel lines (or filter) some fuel will drain but only about a quart.
This is the same method I use when changing the fuel filter but once I install the valves it won't be necessary.
