    I have bought 5 Drayton trv4 15mm angled valves off ebay and planned to fit them today.
    I have drained the system and taken off an old valve. The Drayton TRV4 fits on the copper pipe but has a smaller thread where it attaches to the radiator.
    I guess I have brought the wrong valve but I’m hoping I haven’t?

    The valves should have come with tail pieces with which you replace the current ones in the radiator. Missing? That's ebay for you.
    You need a special spanner to remove the tail piece, and you need to remove and replace the olve on the copper pipe if you don't want it to leak.
