Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful item when old pipework doesn't line up These are a well made and useful item if you are fitting a metric sized radiator in place of an imperial sized one, and it's shorter than the original and you don't want to have to start re-doing pipework. It's a simple matter of fitting this tail to your new rad and pushing it all the way in. You can then hang and centre the new rad, and then pull the moving telescopic tail back out until its long enough to go into the radiator valve on your existing pipework. Note that there are two lengths available. Easy and job done !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Telecopic Radiator Tails for TRVs When converting from old imperial radiators to metric these are ideal to "fill the gaps" and it's easy to move the rads side-to-side to get them centralised. Also required if using TRVs as some tails do not fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang on Perfect for towel radiator. Telescopic nature gives plenty of wiggle room for novices. No leaking when joined to central heating system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked very well I used these to make up a larger than expected gap when replacing an old radiator (new one 40 mm narrower). They did the job well and look good on completion! I'd read reviews of this and similar products; mostly good but some issues with leaks. So I was a bit nervous! I had 2 leaks! One on the connection into the radiator on one side, the other at the compression joint on the other side. As a DIYer I'd looked for advice on how much PTFE to apply to the non-compression joint. It's amazing how much it varies! I had applied 7 wraps but obviously this was insufficient for one side (?). Some professionals say they use 10 to 12 so I did 12 and it resolved that issue. I'm not sure what happened at the compression joint end. I found a replacement olive - I did notice how much the replacement one looked sturdier than the one supplied with this valve. Applying this olive cured the leaking. As a non-plumber, it may be that I did something wrong when setting up the compression joint although I did the same as the other side and that worked. There are no fitting instructions at all - I just received the valves. I have therefore rated the product specification as 'poor'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful Makes replacing a radiator easy(ier). As another reviewer pointed out the illustration is slightly misleading. The nut and olive are removed from one end and fitted to the other. I guess it’s easier to store as shown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Fitted to my new radiators. Does the job well at the right price. The telescopic design make the final fitting of the brackets and pipework less critical. Hopefull the seals will never cause a problem with leaks in the future.
