Isolating Valve With Handle 22mm
Isolating Valve With Handle 22
Easier to use than the slotted type isolation valve. No longer need to find a torch to locate the slot to isolate the flow through the valve

Does the job
Decent well made product. Fits well and stops flow as it should. Standard quarter turn to stop or start flow.

Unreliable & poor quality
As others have mentioned the valve lever is of poor quality plastic. Installed on bath supply pipes. Was able to turn it on and off once, but after that the plastic disintegrated against the valve itself and wouldn't open. I've had to take both cold and hot water supply pipes apart to replace.
Going back to standard isolation valves.

Check & check again..
Fitted a couple of these valves in an upstairs flat, just happened to look down the bore,before connecting the second pipe, it was open yet the tap was off, no amount of turning would have shut the flow down, this all takes place on a Sunday late, so job not done.
I had checked the valves for olives missing etc and turned some on and off, this one I missed, and could have been in trouble if not spotted.
I had the same trouble with central heating pump isolation valves, one ok the other stuck open even when turning the tap head...Check and check again before fitting..
