    Hi all, hoping you can help? I've fitted a Drayton Lockshield Valve to a new radiator pipe prior to installing a new radiator which hasn't arrived yet.

    Radiator Valve Fitting Identification

    Hi, Can anyone tell me what the following radiator valve fitting is? It's located between the radiator and the lock shield valve - it seems to have a screw in the top but I've no idea what it's for as I've never seen one before. Any ideas? Thanks :)
