A 1/8" brass ball valve will work nicely.

Well, like I said, "3 dollars and up." I used to work at a hardware store and got like a 15 or 20% discount. I go to the same store and the valves are cheaper than Ace. The store owner is the same one who owns the local Ace Hardware but the difference is Ace is a retail store and the other is a wholesale store.

The ball valve is generally female thread. It will not screw into the sprinkler valve without a pipe nipple.
