Drain valve may leak
It seems this product is available in the market in two variants but the same manufacturers type code. The ones I bought from Screwfix six months ago have a drain valve with a tiny rubber sealing washer which is damaged if tightened much more than finger tight. Not fit for purpose in my experience (serious leak today after routine maintenance).
However, the alternative product (which I got today from another stockist) has a tapered brass insert which provides a satisfactory and robust drain valve seal. It may be the Screwfix version is now like this, but I strongly recommend you check first. If the improved product is being supplied I would give it 4 stars at least.

Angled Rad Valve Chrome 8mm
Bought a set of 7 to fit to replacement radiators and wantedthe added facility to drain off each rad separately. Used a smear of Fernox LS-X and had no leaks other than a weep from a rubber seal on the towel rail bleed valve - a smear of Fernox and problem solved.
