JG 15PTSVP Speedfit Chrome Service Valve 15mm
Leak free so far, looks great.
I used this to plumb in a toilet. Very easy to install and was watertight first time. I had to take it off afterwards and reinstalled without a problem. Easy to shut and reopen. Looks good too. Gave 3 stars for reliability as only time will tell.

Have you wondered why a screwdriver slips off the valve head?
It is because it is designed to be operated with a coin, so that in an emergency you do not need special tools.
For the record, once the item is a few years old and furred up, one penny, five penny and twenty pence pieces fit the slot, but do not have sufficient purchase, a tenpenny piece, has the puchase but is not a happy fit into the slot.
Perhaps the dollar and euro have better purchasing power. Ho Ho!
Perhaps Screwfix could organise a competition to suggest what kind of emergencies this valve might be used for?

Looks to be full bore. Used for local isolation on kickspace heater installation. Screwdriver slot is also threaded so I guess you could fit the handles that come with washing machine valves, if required.
