if it is stubborn, or is made from plastic and simply is inoperative, pull the lower hose (not shown, in H25's illustration) sometimes unless the petcock is less than co-operative, this is one solution to this problem~

They deleted my picture of a brass fitting inside of an hour of posting, ans all it was just a brass petcock with no copyright marks no watermarks I think these guys delete my images for no other reason than to irritate me, and it works, You win.
