Review for Monument 2166M TRV Tail Driver Fitting Socket by C F Heating & Plumbing LTD
23rd February 2021

Great tool, makes fitting radiators quicker and easier. A few reviews mention about being careful not to cross thread, I haven’t had this problem, but I use loctite 55 and leave the first thread free to screw in the rad tail by hand first. Works for me!

Excellent time saving piece of equipment, especially when working on site, makes dressing radiators quick and easy ( make sure not to cross thread the valve tail when installing ), Fits standard drills.

Had this quite a while now, makes fitting radiator tails a lot quicker.

Be careful not to start it cross threaded.

If swapping radiator valves in situ then I go back to my 5/8” ratchet spanner if the radiator is too close to the adjacent wall as you cannot fit drill in.

Strong sturdy build. Not expensive, worth the money.

Can't believe I've only recently bought 1 of these, massive time saver. Fits a wide range of radiator tail, could do with a new version for the internal tails like on towel rad valves too. Fits in any standard drill or also in a ratchet/ring spanner. Gets a good grip on the valve tail without marking it

well, where do I start with the 2166m or as it's better known in the Leeds and surrounding areas as the RTPI!! Rad Tail Putter Inner.

it does exactly what its meant to do, and it saves time and saving time means saving money.

I find these really good when you have a lot of radiators valves to do. It half the time fitting the valves tails to radiator. And a lot easier that using a spanner

Awesome bit of kit good for putting tails in and auto wrapping PTFE tape onto the tail (bet you hadn’t tried that before!) best used with the mistral 2 self seal tails I find as they seat well against the face. NOTE: this won’t work with tails that have the nut & olive on already such as Danfoss etc. So make sure to check that first. Still 5* because not their fault.

Ideal tail driver works with any drill or ratchet and socket. Fast removal tool and installation. My apprentice loves it so I suppose I will have to get him one now. Usual Monument quality and although I had mine for some time still not showing signs of wear. Brilliant.

So any half decent plumber will know about this driver, makes a slow job super quick, plus it doesn’t slip and mark up the tail, I personally would use anything else. It’s the new standard.

This is one of those tools, that you don't know how good it is until you have one. It is a great idea and a real time saver. Such a simple idea but a really good one.

i used to use spanners which I found which was a bit to slow, for me time is the most important thing to me and these things get things done quicker than anything else, depends how fast your drill is

If your only doing 1 radiator it's a bit long winded. Can't be done with the radiator on the wall unless it's on the larger bracket without causing damage to the wall. But over all its brilliant. Saves a load of time when your doing a few.

Good bit of kit, makes the job easier and like other reviewers have mentioned works perfectly for the old style panel rads with the fins on each side where getting an adjustable in is awkward.

A really good and simple tool. It's ideal for fitting valve tails to older rads with the fins on the side which can make it awkward to fit with a spanner alone.

Providing you have the space next to the rad to use this it's such a time saver and makes the boring process a doddle. Always recommending these to friends!

This is a Tool Talk review of a Monument Tool. This is the radiator valve tail socket, used to drive in radiator tails or remove them. Let's open it up. Yeah, nice, clunky, hard up. Let's put it in the drill and see what it's like. Okay, now it's in the drill, speed one. Let's see what it's like removing. That was very easy. Okay, takes them out very fast. Now let's see what it's like with a new one. I know this is gas tape, but this is all I've got. Okay, tie them back up, new valve. You see the different shapes, it will go in one way and then lock. And that is in. Very quick. Nice tool. Thank you, Expert Trades, for sending this, and thank you Monument. That's a very nice tool. It's going to make life much easier.
