That's bleeding cheap!
I've been waiting for this to be reduced from 50p.....now i will stock up.
Heh... I just came on here to have a quick look for Christmas presents, and this was at the top of the site... maybe it's a sign
Word of caution, if you have old radiators which have been bled a few times these don't fit well. The way they are produced means they do not have a sharp square cut insert which will slip on worn screws. The best I have used cost just a pound for two at the Pound shop these are cast silver material and fit really well. I think these are milled out of brass which gives the roundness of the square edges.
I got one for a couple of quid that had a rubber seal and small recepticle for collecting any drips that may leak. Can't remember where I got it right enough!
your best filling down the bottom of these keys taking the dome shape out from just inside leaving a square slot from start, this will help not rounding off the bleed nipple.
Recently I bought 3 different types of bleed keys, only one fit.

agreed, these are awful vent keys, spend a bit more and get one that won't make a mess of the radiator bleed screw
I think I am missing the joke but.... just get it pricematched and 10% off at bnq
oh no not another one, at least this one's cheaper

these keys are now set to become the new must-post item in place of rj45 cables !!
You live in the man drawer!
Perfect xmas present for any man stocking his man-drawer for the first time!
49p in wickes so not a special price
Useless if your radiator is sticky. Buy one with a large ending - easier to get leverage to turn,
3 for 99p in bm stores. also has eyelets so you can attach to a key ring

was more thinking you can hang it somewhere as i'm always misplacing mine. but why not with the chat up.
Clearly these radiator keys are the 'in' thing, maybe Pandora should make one as a charm, would make a nice practical addition for the wife/girlfriends bracelet oO

Cold. This is not a silverline and won't work as well. Type silverline in to the search box and see how good these are. Screwfix are okay, but won't last as well. Add to that this is NOT FREE DELIVERY.

Much better offer (which inspired this post) available here 2 SILVERLINE BRASS KEYS for 95p FREE DELIVERY - hotukdeals.com/dea…260

This is essentially my deal. This post would not be up if it was not for mine. Also, my deal has more votes so I don't envy. The important thing is people are buying these keys and bleeding their rads!

Fully agree. These are very poorly fitting - same as in B&Q which I returned. Awful to hold and apply any turning torque. Butterfly design much better.
