    Purchased the hex key and it didn't fit.

    So there is more than one size of fitting for these rads?

    It's poor that the Toolstation site doesn't give the size under Technical Spec, what could be more basic?

    I have a rad tail that takes a 13mm key, which I believe is typical, but somebody might comment. I suppose you can't reach in with a caliper or something to measure it? I'd go to the shop and check before you buy.
