I find these really good when you have a lot of radiators valves to do. It half the time fitting the valves tails to radiator. And a lot easier that using a spanner

Awesome bit of kit good for putting tails in and auto wrapping PTFE tape onto the tail (bet you hadn’t tried that before!) best used with the mistral 2 self seal tails I find as they seat well against the face. NOTE: this won’t work with tails that have the nut & olive on already such as Danfoss etc. So make sure to check that first. Still 5* because not their fault.

Ideal tail driver works with any drill or ratchet and socket. Fast removal tool and installation. My apprentice loves it so I suppose I will have to get him one now. Usual Monument quality and although I had mine for some time still not showing signs of wear. Brilliant.

So any half decent plumber will know about this driver, makes a slow job super quick, plus it doesn’t slip and mark up the tail, I personally would use anything else. It’s the new standard.

This is one of those tools, that you don't know how good it is until you have one. It is a great idea and a real time saver. Such a simple idea but a really good one.

Excellent time saver for radiator installs , I used to use an adjustable spanner but as the saying goes ‘time is money’ this tool definitely helps speeds things up

What a fantastic tool, couldn't imagine building rads up without it. It's got to be 1 of the best plumbing inventions I've ever come across. Excellent value for money & top quality!

i used to use spanners which I found which was a bit to slow, for me time is the most important thing to me and these things get things done quicker than anything else, depends how fast your drill is

A very handy little tool, fits most trv tails that come with the nut and olive loose/separate. I wish I'd known about these when I was site bashing, as times money, and these speed things up!

If your only doing 1 radiator it's a bit long winded. Can't be done with the radiator on the wall unless it's on the larger bracket without causing damage to the wall. But over all its brilliant. Saves a load of time when your doing a few.

A good, simple idea that does save a bit of time with most valves. For the price you can't complain.

Good bit of kit, makes the job easier and like other reviewers have mentioned works perfectly for the old style panel rads with the fins on each side where getting an adjustable in is awkward.

A really good and simple tool. It's ideal for fitting valve tails to older rads with the fins on the side which can make it awkward to fit with a spanner alone.

Providing you have the space next to the rad to use this it's such a time saver and makes the boring process a doddle. Always recommending these to friends!

Really good idea fits branded TRV's but some of the trade ones don't fit so can be hit and miss but saves plenty of time when you have TRV's that are compatible
