Title: ROTATING HANDLE AND WATER FAUCET PROVIDED WITH SAME
Abstract:
A rotating handle 122 is mounted on a separate hot water faucet 100 and is for controlling water discharge by way of an operator rotating the handle. The coefficient of friction for a grip member 132 is set to be large in order to guide the finger of the operator to the grip member 132 (operating face) that is set in a portion of an exterior face 134 of the rotating handle 122 when the operator grabs the rotating handle 122. The grip member 132 is formed to have a linear operating face that extends to a position that does not reach the joining position of the rotating handle 122 and the separate hot water faucet 100 along the exterior face 134 in the direction of the rotational axis.
