Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Replaced radiator on my narrow boat so needed a pair of tails, fitting easy suspicious they may leak but guess what ran heating on max for 6 hours everything tickity boo. 21 Jun 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Absolute junk This initially looked the answer to my problem of replacing an imperial radiator with a smaller metric one. they didn't just leak, the water poured out, i fail to see how these could ever be leak tight. threw them in the bin and went to a well known diy store down the road to buy some decent kit. Screw fix should take these off sale immediately. Moral of story is read the bad reviews before buying. 15 Jun 2016

The Tail has 2 flared ends so it seems you cannot change the length but reviews say it is easy to modify.
If I cut one end, which one, and will it affect the sealing ?
