Emergency suction valve must be easily and quickly operated in case of flooding in the Engine Room. Therefore the best practice is to secure it with easy removable means f. e. plastic strip.

This arrangement also allows to easy access for the routine checks.

Other common practice of securing valves with chain and padlock can not be considered safe as in case of emergency padlock may be found seized or it's key lost.
