Pozibite TapSplitter tool kit for releasing even damaged tap head nuts on dripping or stuck pillar and bib taps
ABD Tools
£38.95
The major cause of problems when fixing a tap is a seized tap head nut. Brute force applied with a spanner to undo the nut can cause the tap to spin resulting in damage to the ceramic ware and water pipe joints. An additional problem with undoing a tap head nut is, as the material is soft brass, it can easily be damaged when tight if using a traditional spanner or grips as these can lose grip, rounding off the edges of the nut. The solution? It's as easy as ABD with our unique PoziBite TapSplitter Kit - and absolutely safe. The kit contains 4 inserts (17mm, 17.5mm, 19mm, & 22mm) to fit most undamaged head nuts and the patented PoziBite insert for damaged nuts on pillar and bib taps. The Pozibite insert allows even a severely damaged nut to be gripped tightly and maximum force applied to release it. Using our TapSplitter to safely and easily undo the tap head nut on pillar and bib taps allows easy access to the washer or spindle for replacement and to the tap seat for regrinding to stop leaks, reduce stiffness, turn off and on correctly and fix other tap problems. The pressure created by this tool will undo even the most jammed tap head nut, and as the pull is completely internal to the tap and nut is guaranteed not to damage the pipe fittings or the basin, sink or bath. Please note that this kit is not suitable for mixer taps.

***REDUCED PRICE*** OlivePullOff tool to remove copper and brass olives from 15mm copper pipes quickly and easily
ABD Tools
£13.90
Please note, the customer review stating this tool was not up to the job was not using it correctly, the customer was placing the olive into the tool, not the nut AND olive. The OlivePullOff tool removes 15mm copper or brass olives and compression rings from copper pipes in seconds. It can be used one handed for greater safety when working off the ground or when you just need that other hand free. This tool is easier & more versatile to use than other olive removal devices, as it does not rely on cutting, threads or screwing onto a compression nut. It pulls off olives whether the compression fitting nut threads are BSP, Metric or non-BSP. This is a pick up and use tool. Fit the 17mm slot in the top end of the tool onto the nut & olive to be removed, ensuring the end of the plunger is aligned with the copper pipe. Then, no screwing, twisting or turning; just squeeze the handles together to remove the olive from the pipe! Although not essential, we recommend using penetrating oil to lubricate the pipe and olive. This makes removal easier as less force is required. The greater majority of olive removal jobs are on 15mm pipes, which the OlivePullOff does brilliantly. For other pipe sizes, we manufacture an adapter kit to remove 10mm & 22mm olives. This is available as an add-on to the OlivePullOff tool or as part of the OlivePullOff ToolKit. Please note, the Customer who left a 1 star rating did not use the tool correctly, the correct way is to insert the olive AND nut between the jaws, not just the Olive.

RadValve Clamp Set to prevent leakage from thermostatic & manual valves after removing the radiator
ABD Tools
£8.99
When you disconnect and remove a central heating radiator, RadValve Clamps can be used to securely seal the open radiator valves. This prevents water damage should the radiator valves not completely stop the flow when turned off. Thermostatic radiator valves have been known fail when turned off, draining the central heating system into a room. Manual radiator valves are unlikely to fail completely, but can allow drips to leak through which build up over time and damage carpets and floors. These clamps are easy, quick and simple to fit to any right-angled radiator valves, so no need to find the correct thermostatic valve dust cover or a correctly threaded brass stop end. This clamp is designed to fit all valves - the tool designed specifically for the job! Sold as a set of two clamps, to seal two radiator valves.
