Pegler Terrier Chrome TRV 15mm Straight
Bought this for the Lockshield
Spent a fortune installing the fantastic looking Danfoss RAS D2 throughout my house about 6 years ago. However after shutting down a lockshield for a recent plumbing alteration I was horrified to find a leak on opening it backup. After some Google-ing I was frustrated to learn this was a common issue with these types of lockshield as they use an o ring seal which cannot be replaced once its degraded (therefore you need to replace the entire thing) - apparently lockshields with a 'gland nut' were the better design as if they do leak you can rethread them, so thats why I have bought this one...
Also this is not a straight replacement for the straight Danfoss lockshield (I compared a few and they were all shorter than the Danfoss..this one is about 1cm short so extra plumbing may be required if theres no give in the pipes)
I can't comment on the functionality of the Pegler lockshield at this moment
I'm still using the Danfoss TRV, the design of the Pegler lockshield isn't great and I'm gutted I'll have to replace all my Danfoss lockshields ones with a more clumsy looking ones - lesson learned I guess...

Would definitely buy again
Good quality item, in spite of part of it being plastic. Easy to install and works well.

Does what it claims. To early to say how reliable.
Somewhat plasticky to the touch but looks OK.

the trv when compared to Drayton TRV4 looks cheap. I could not find a straight Drayton with straight lockshield. Hence bought these but not sure about the performance. I have Drayton TRV4, honeywell and one peggler now. Should wait and watch which fails first.
