Pegler Terrier Lockshield Valve 15mm
good idea, but.............
I have fitted many of the peglar lock shield valves without the drain off and cannot recommend them enough. However the ones with drain off, I have now had problems with these on 3 separate occasions. My main issue is they do not fully fit in the radiator. I have tried these with 2 different make radiators and the valves from different suppliers but always the same outcome. Tightened fully into the radiator there are still 3-4 turns of thread visible and does not leave a professional looking finish. I have tried with no PTFE tape on the thread but makes no difference and you end up rounding off the nut.!

Not cheap but good design
Not a cheap valve but the design allows you to bleed the radiator alone which can be very useful when doing work or filling up with chemicals in future. I wish all valves had this design in future. Would recommend you free up the bleed valve first before installation as they can be very stiff.

Bought these as replacements where I had removed existing rads for decorating, slightly pricey.
Ok so the originals had been in for 16yrs, the drain off screw plug was seized up, when I eventually freed it and drained off. I then refitted and refilled it, and started leaking out of the top of the drain off.
Hence buying the replacements.
This may be a common issue, but the actual idea is good.

Pegler Lockshield Valve
I have used this product before.
It is solidly built compared to cheaper brands.
