have one stuck like that at home, its gone round from previous owner so cant get a key to catch onto it.

as far as i know
you can A) drill a tiny hole into the top corner of your rad in the same spot as a postage stamp, put a small self tapper screw and plumbers tape into it, then when you need to bleed, just open the screw. PS close valves first
This is what ive done and its worked for 2-3 years now
or B) Buy a new rad

Sound stuff HB.

Probably a safer option than drilling into the half plug that's stuck and trying to coax it out.

I think you can do that as well McG but you have to rethread the hole and stuff and thats a step beyond my diy skills.

Very easy to do the self tapper thing

Right lads, have a small 19 inch flat screen i wanna throw up on the wall in the bedroom. Wood studs too off centre for me to hang the thing where it would be best suited. So all im left with is plasterboard to work with. Knowing how brittle that stuff is, any way around it? Would it hold the tv given it's only a small one? If i was to anchor it or rawl plug? Askin for trouble?

No
Cut out a square were you want it
You need to insert 'grounds' (timber) between joists
Then put back up plasterboard you cut out
Fix the tv bracket to the grounds you inserted
Poly filler for plasterboard
Paint

Have the same problem except with a 32 inch telly. I know this is of no help. Seeya.
Disregard the ice warnings and proceed full steam ahead. We are making great time. I want that trans Atlantic record! And turn off that bloody infernal Morse Code system!

Could be 400mm?
Cut her open and sus it out
Just cut the timber to fit the gap
Then screw her in securely
Ye get me?

It's only a small telly McG . If ye dont fancy BSMs idea head down to grange builders and get some 6 or 8mm toggle bolts . All you need to fix them in is a Phillips screwdriver .
l hear you are a racist now, father ?
