Radiator Valve Key
Ok if valve is not too tight
Ok for bleeding most valves but no use if valve is too tight (too small and therefore cannot get any purchase)

Amost, but not quite.
This key simply doesn't work with any bleed valves in my house. The problem is that the hole in the centre of the key has been made with a circular drill and then four angular corners have been made in the inside of the drill hole. I think the idea is that the corners of your square headed bleed valve would then sit in those cylinder corners and that should do the trick. This might be the case if your bleed valves are brand new, but if they are old valves that have been opened a few times, the chances are that the square valve top has probably been rounded off a bit and these keys will then simply spin round.
In a nutshell, these keys might be OK for new or pristine bleed valves, otherwise avoid!

Like other reviewers of this key, I found that the t-bar was a bit short & thin and the key was too small to fit the bleed valve.
It did fit the drain valves fitted to my radiators though and with a pair of pliers was strong enough to turn them so swings and roundabouts!

Does the job
Handles are a bit thin, but it does the job. It's good value for money. Cheapest I've found.
