""4-Way Radiator & Services Cabinet Key" I bought this looking for a hefty radiator key that wouldn't get left behind at every customer's site. Nope - this isn't a radiator key, it doesn't fit bleed valves.
"Fits most lockshield radiator and drain off valves" Nope - doesn't fit any lockshield that Screwfix sells, it fits the old fashioned square ones that you haven't been able to buy for decades. But so does your adjustable spanner.
"Product Depth 25 mm" Nope - it is about 18mm deep
"Product Height 167 mm" Nope - it is about 90mm high. It comes attached by cable ties to a pointless piece of plastic that you have to throw away - this is 167 mm high.
"Product Length 65 mm" Nope - product is a cross about 90mm long and 90mm wide.
"Product Thickness 25 mm" Nope - still 18mm thick
"Product Width 65 mm" Nope - that's the piece of throw-away plastic again.
"Total Product Weight 0.17 kg" Yep - that's about right. It is a hefty little bit of kit, about 6oz, so not a kick in the pants off half a pound to carry around.
It does fit drain-off valves though.
I would recommend this as a posh services cabinet key if Screwfix got the description right, but I'd still buy an ordinary cheap one instead."

Review 9 for Plumbing Tools by Rothenberger 4-Way Radiator & Services Cabinet Key
"Yet another example of incorrect or misleading description. This tool is a service cabinet key not a radiator key although it may fit industrial type radiators but certainly not blead nipples or lock shield valves on domestic radiators."

Review 10 for Plumbing Tools by Rothenberger 4-Way Radiator & Services Cabinet Key
"Should not be advertised as a radiator key. Bought to bleed a few radiators in my house, which are a mixture of new and old radiators, with 2 or 3 different size/type of bleed nipple. None of the heads on this key fitted a single one. I guess it's more for the meter cabinet locks."
