"Brought this as my old lockshield valve decided the break and the only other drain off point i had is about 2mm off the floor. Went on easy enough and no leaks + looks a lot nicer than my old (broken) valve."

"C H system did not have a draincock to empty
the system . Replacing one of radiator valve
of the lowest rad with this combi valve solved
the problems . Also solved the hassle of fitting a
pipe through the wall to outside to empty the system !!!

Excellent quality - Good price
26 Oct 2012
By cornflakes

"Nicely engineered valve and a really excellent chrome finish. All at a very affordable price!
Easy to fit and use! I now use these on radiators instead of the standard "Lockshield" type valve as they are so much better for any routine maintenance or should you need to drain down the rad for any reason such as decorating etc."

"Not the first time I've bought these and similar valves from Screwfix; and not the first time I've found the standard valve tail allen key doesn't always fit. On the previous occasion 1 of six had the problem but I was close enough to Screwfix to swap it, on this occasion however, I was further afield so had to use a bent bolt to fit them. Seems just the odd one has a problem so would advise anyone to check them on purchase, if possible."

Seem to be fine
2 Oct 2013
By Felipe
, Somerset
"I have installed a dozen of these recently and they seem to be fine. No visible leaks at this stage. Only slight criticism is that the spindles on some are very tight - but better that than the gland leaking, I suppose!
Using these lockshields makes it so much easier to drain a single radiator if you need to. I would always use this type."

Useful
18 Dec 2012
By Gazzagaz
, Hemel Hempstead
"I'm sure that many of us have struggled to drain a rad without draining the pipework down, this is the answer. Not as pretty as a normal lock shield but pretty enough when considering the benefits. Can't see that this is an alternative to a system drain point as pipework is generally below the rad. I shall be installing many of these as i tend to remove rads for decorating."

Recommended for decorators!

By RonSpon
, Chelmsford
"I've fitted lots of these, especially where there is no existing central heating drain cock. A useful feature is that if you leave the valve shut, you can easily drain the radiator prior to removal for decorating. Open the valve to drain the central heating system.
Good quality knob, slightly above average chrome finish.

Poor quality
19 Jan 2014
By Werewolf
, Milton Keynes
"I bought this valve along with a new radiator, to be fitted by a plumber. In fitting, the tail snapped and sheered off inside the radiator, necessitating return of the radiator and valve for refund, as it would not come out of the radiator.
No problems with return/refund in store, but hassle and extra time spent on this job was annoying."

"Unfortunately this valve cannot be fitted to a radiator with a conventional plumbers spanner. Screwfix did not stock the large sized hex key required and I was unable to purchase one locally. With regret I had to return the item. So be warned!"

Terrible valve
24 May 2012
By AylesPlumb
, Bucks
"Other reviewers obviously not had the same probs I did. First time I've got these basic rad valves from Screwfix.
This is the only valve that has been too small for my standard sized rad spanner. Also when I did manage to begin to tighten it, the valve snapped into pieces inside the rad tapping.
Felt very cheap material.
At least Screwfix are unbeatable on refunds and good job I had a spare decent one in the van."
