    Hello I’m trying to replace a radiator using the existing pipe work. The depth of the new rad is deeper that the existing and the existing pipes are curved. Unfortunately the trv doesn’t fit straight on and only goes on an angle. Is there anything I can use like a different valve to get the connection straight. Excuse the mess, building works underway. Thanks

    Can you alter the brackets so it sits nearer the wall ? Rad valve can be fitted so head is horizontal

    Cheers CrossThread. Modifying the brackets might be difficult. I'll look into the horizontal TRVs

    all TRVs are horizontal or vertical

    Just remove the valve and fit it the opposite way around so the TRV head fits on this way -
