    I have a 500 mm radiator to fit however the radiator is short by 20mm from the valves, without having to move the pipes is there an easier solution to this. I have heard that there are extensions you can purchase, but do they do them to the minimum size of 20mm? Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance
