"Not very exciting, we weren't sure it would fit our old radiator for removing the old screw, but it did the job with ease. Very helpful and would definitely recommend."

"Great product.
Not sure why the other reviewer said it doesn't fit the standard radiator valves - it did for me! (e.g Rad Valve part No. 33920)

A must have for radiators
20-Aug-2011
By

"I recently spent some time moving radiators around in my house and replacing valves. This tool saves so much time and effort when doing up the valves onto the radiators.
I'm a DIYer and found it easy to move radiators with the help of this simple tool.

Bargain face saver
01-Apr-2010
By
, milton keynes
"I'm a chippy not a plumber but have basic understanding so when refitting my bathroom did all the work myself. The better half wanted a new towel rad so got one from screwfix on sale bargain!
But the valve conections leaked! Looking on the forums here seems to be common problem with these rads, as I had fitted isolation valves it was simple for me to just lift it off the wall and with this sturdy little spanner remove the offending valves put on some extra tape and try again, sucess no leaks! Well worth £3.45 of anyones money and saved me losing face to my plumber mate who was itching for me to mess up!
All in all did what it said it would, is a solid lump so should last a lifetime. Don't know what the square end and machined grooves are for but assume they fit other more specialised valves so has multiple uses. 5 out of 5.

Unhelpful product listing
04-Apr-2014
By
, UK
"Just to make this product listing useful for others, this hex key is a 0.5 inch across flats. If you're looking for a 12mm hex key, your out of luck.
Basic information that should be on the product description. 0 out of 10 screwfix!!! :-(
The product itself is, well, it's a radiator spanner, it does what it's supposed to, so top marks to the radiator spanner."

Size differences
20-Oct-2013
By
, Warrington
"A brief tip for DIY'ers (professionals please ignore this as you will undoubtedly already have the full range of necessary tools):
I bought one of these a while ago mistakenly believing that it would be 'universal' and would fit all modern rad valves. I was surprised when I recently bought a 15mm drain off valve from Screwfix and then found that this spanner didn't fit. As a DIY'er, I didn't have the correct one so had to go and buy another one from a different supplier as Screwfix didn't sell one that fits the rad valves that they sell.
However, if it is the size you want, its a sturdy tool and reasonably priced for the quality."

No good to me
25-Apr-2012
By

"Although described as a 'Radiator Spanner' - this is not a universal tool. It does not fit all the valves sold by Screwfix (I bought 15mm drain-off valves which require a smaller hex-key).
However, if it is the size you want, its a sturdy tool and reasonably priced for the quality."
