    I have some Pegler Terrier lock shields with drain off capability. A standard bleed key is too big as it appears they use a smaller square head on their valves.
    Anyone know where I can get a bleed key to fit.

    Thanks

    I don’t know where the other post is, but is it a drain off you want to open, or bleed the rad? The valves will have no effect on the bleeding of the radiator, unless they’re shut of course.

    It was to undo the drain tap on the lockshield valve, not to bleed the radiator. Problem solved now as I have found the right size key thanks.
