Next Competition Launched
The DIY Doctor Summer Competition is sponsored by ABD Tools who are a UK company that specialises in solving DIY and Building problems that they have noticed and brainstormed to create a solution.
The first prize is a RadKit Pro set which will allow you to easily remove a radiator without mess or fuss. See our DIY Project on removing a radiator to decorate which includes a video tutorial on how to use Radkit.
The RadKit Pro includes all the tools you need to remove and replace or fit a new domestic central heating radiator without draining down the system. The case is designed to store the tools safely so you don’t lose the components and so it’s ready whenever decorating or radiator work needs to be done.
The kit has been designed to help minimise the risk of damage to pipe work, woodwork, and painted surfaces and to avoid staining to carpets and household contents providing the simple instructions are followed.
As the guys from ABD Tools say
This kit makes removing and replacing a radiator or fitting a new radiator easier, quicker, cleaner and safer than any of the old ways.
Professionals and DIY Home Improverers can use the RadKit to replace a radiator with increased confidence of complete success.
The RadKit Pro contains
Set of RadClamps which hold the water in the radiator before it’s removed
1 RadWrench to safely and securely hold a radiator valve while you connect or disconnect the radiator
1 RadSpanner to easily connect and disconnect the radiator valves
1 Brass Air Vent key to bleed the radiator before removing and after fitting
A spare set of RadClamp seals
The kit also includes a set of instructions and handy hints for using your Radkit successfully.
