Very good product
15 Dec 2014

" I bought this to fit as replacement lock shield to my radiator. The drain off option is the best thing because I can drain a rad without much of an issue.
I've found it a bit difficult to roll ptfe tape on the mouth closer to the drain off but that is to be expected.
Would definitely recommend it.

" 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

" 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. "

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. "

" 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.

" This item fitted quite easily. I went to flush my system about 2 years after installing this valve. Unfortunately, the valve had seized and the drain off nut sheared off when I went to loosen it.

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. "
