5.0 out of 5 stars Bleeder
Ever since moving into my own place, I've dreamed of getting my very own Radiator Bleed Key. Now I have it, I can rest assured knowing that if any bleeding needs doing, I am the man with the key.

It is very small, yet weighty, and has a perfect home in my sideboard drawer along with odd screws, bits of string, twistix, and silica gel packets.

I would...

1.0 out of 5 stars not so good.
Does not work in all the radiators, it hard to turn due to its small handles. After a couple of uses the head rounds off making it slip when turning radiator valves. I managed to find a better one at a local pound shop.

I would recommend this item, which is well priced and quickly delivered.

2.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says but not that great, 16 Feb. 2012

This review is from: Silverline 282448 Radiator Bleed Key (Tools & Hardware)
So I bought this as I couldnt find my other key (bigger version like the draper one), out of all the raditators i tried, only 2 of them managed to open, the rest was very tight and my thumb and finger started to hurt.

If you have very tight valve, then this wont do unless you have super strength and want to risk rounding your valve. Then again you normally dont know if its your first time doing this.

Will be ordering a new one and giving this one away.

Simply a nice working small bleed key. I don't think you can possibly go wrong with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline 282448 Radiator Bleed Key (Tools & Hardware)
I should have paid attention to the reviews, I tried it on 3 radiators and it would only lock and turn one of them even though they are all of the same design. I then went to my local hardware store and bought a properly made one for 6 pence less (and they told me they would happily take it back if it did not work but of course it did). Avoid this useless object like the plague.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO USE, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline 282448 Radiator Bleed Key (Tools & Hardware)
Sturdy, but too, too small. It never fitted my radiators. Also if you have ever painted your radiators, DON'T EVER paint where the key would go. If you have any problems with your hands, like gripping, this is not for you. It came on time, but that's all I can say about it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't put a square peg in a round hole., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline 282448 Radiator Bleed Key (Tools & Hardware)
Utterly useless product, the hole is circular and doesn't have any notches- unlike the picture. Obviously some people have received one that works so perhaps this is a dud. Anyway, I am not happy.

Does not fit my radiators the hole is round not square, it has one job to do fit on the bleed nipple and turn, I do not think with any greater effort you could design a worse product do not buy.
