Rated 5 out of 5Â by gnattycole Reliable and reasonably priced
These lockshield valves with drain cocks are great pieces of kit and save additional soldering of Tee pieces and drain cocks when fitting radiators and drops.
They allow the radiator panels to be drained without the usual faff of bowls under the tails if you remove them for decorating (Like I do) and also enable all the downstairs drops to be drained down if you are leaving the property without heat over winter. The only downside is the last horizontal run to the valve can't be drained unless the valve is fed from the rear instead of the traditional turn up to feed from beneath.
I used the 10mm versions at my previous property and they were called into use on several occasions without failure. I've purchased 15mm ones now for my current place to suit installation requirements and they seem just as good.

Put this on the last rad. on the run instead of cutting into the pipe as the one which has been on for years was stuck and I did not want to force it.

Easy to fit and it saves adding a drain off in the pipe work, it looks very professional can't give it 5* for reliability as just fitted it
