Less than perfect manufacture
Bought 2 of these to fit for a friend. Looked good out of the box apart from one small dent (very thin cardboard box - little protection from transit knocks). Instructions fairly clear (see later).
Fitted radiator and, as is usual, put plenty of PTFE on tails. tested and seemed airtight. part filled and within a few seconds water was flooding from tail. Attempted to tighten but tail had almost gone into rad leaving minimal access. took all apart and removed offending tail.
Instructions said put at least 6 turns of PTFE on. I had probably more than doubled this. Re -taped with a LOT of PTFE and did up again - tested and replaced (carefully). - success!!
Second radiator fitted a couple of weeks later and despite being excessively cautious and using ++++ PTFE and testing - same scenario.
I think the problem is with the radiator screw threads which are quite roughly finished and very soft so probably a production issue. The tails disappearing into the radiator is also a less than perfect design.
Ultimately you get what you pay for I suppose but these weren't the cheapest available but weren't too pricey.
