    bought a refurbished cast iron radiator with feet (separate). There is no screw holes on the cast iron so I'm wondering whether I should a) drill some or b) the weight of the radiator will hold the feet in place. Just don't want any accidents to happen especially when hoovering etc. Also any advice on fitting on carpet? Should I fit the radiator first or after???
    Thabkyou

    Similar to these??
    Carpet is usually cut around feet.
    Radiator is usually fastened to wall with threaded rod and appropriate cleats.

    Bit overkill for heating one room isn't it? ;)
