Expensive but do the job well
Bought these as a gate valve would not close off the feed from the cold water tank completely - shame you have to buy a set and they are quite expensive however once I had them the correct sized one did the job in no time and with no bother.
Now I've got a set I'll probably never need them again but they are there just in case.

Flimsy. Good idea but poor material. Significantly overpriced. better regarded as a disposable item.

Stop before you plug it!
After a long browse I came across this product and thought what a fantastic idea...why had I never thought of getting these before?! Admittedly the price did put me of as I did think it was a little steep, but after reading the super reviews I totally forgot about the price and found myself ordering a pack!! Looking forward to my next day delivery like the big kid I am..I was unfortunately very disappointed with with I received! They seemed very cheap and nasty, and out of the 6 plugs only 2 worked to a good standard... I tested them all on off cuts of pipe that I had (around 800mm).. And I either had an issue with the rubber popping off inside the pipe, the whole plug just turning whilst twisting the wingnut as it was stuck on the thread or it would not even seal the pipe as the rubber was out of shape. So there was no way I'd even put them into a live system!!
This has obviously left me with no other choice but to return and get my money back! Going from the other reviews I must of been unlucky and received a dodgy batch... But going on my first impression of using this equipment I won't be purchasing it again!

Great value bung
Used the 28mm plug to bung the cold water feed from the cold water storage tank to change a gate valve. Really good water tight hold. Wrapped a bit of PTFE tape round the rubber just to make sure. Really good bit of kit and no chance of coming unplugged
