Capping MaxiPaws

Newbie here. Bought my home 4 years ago and just had the house's Rain bird irrigation system fixed. There were several valves that were busted, heads that were damaged, etc. etc. The system includes a variety of different sprinklers, sometimes 2-3 kinds in the same zone. I know that needs to be remedied, so that's why I'm here.

I would like to take a zone that has 3 MaxiPaws and 2 4" popup sprays and eventually convert it to drip. BUT until I can make that transition, I would like to "cap" the 3 MaxiPaws (I use quotes because I'm not sure of the proper naming scheme) or turn them off/remove them so I can convert them to drip later. I would like to use the 2 sprays in the meantime for some shrubs and perennials.

What do I need to do to accomplish this task? Is there a specific tutorial?

Thanks for any help.

Nothing specific exists for your task. How you proceed will depend on whether or not you have a system that needs to be winterized every year.

It does not need to be winterized.

No worries then, just cut and cap where you wish. Good luck.
