I chose the product as a result of searching the web. I liked the idea and the look of the guard and was NOT disappointed with the items when they arrived. They are very well made and finished well with a protective coating. The delivery was prompt within 24 hrs.

Combination Locking Radiator Valve Cover

SSP No: 16554

RRP £30.00 (£36.00 inc vat)

NOW FROM £23.50 (£28.20 inc vat)

For a number of years, SSP Direct have sold locking thermostat covers to help everyone from landlords and schools through to concerned parents prevent tampering with the heating controller.

Our latest product goes one step further by giving building owners the ability to prevent people from tampering with the radiator valve itself. This may be for their own safety or to keep overall heating costs down.

Affixing the radiator valve cover:
The SSP Thermostop Radiator Valve cover should be slid down the back of the thermostatic radiator valve (TRV), with the clear hinges facing the wall. Before buying, ensure there is a gap of at least 2.5/3cm (approximately 1 inch) between the valve and the wall. Once it is slid into position, the clam shell design closes around the valve. The red retainer then keeps the cover shut whilst the padlock provided is fixed into position.

3-digit combination padlock
This verion of the thermostat cover comes with a robust, three digit combination lock. As the lock has 1,000 different combinations, it is very difficult to crack if you do not know the right number

Things to check before buying:
Is there a gap of an inch/2.5cm between the valve and the wall (any less and it probably will not fit)
Is the combined height of the valve and nut underneath either 8.4cm / 3.3 inches or less? (any taller and it will not fit)
Is the pipe underneath the valve and fixing nut less than 30mm / 3 cm / 1.18 inches?

Who should buy this locking cover?

  • Landlords trying to stop escalating heating bills
  • Concerned parents of young children
  • Parents and carers of autistic children and children with other special needs
  • Carers of elderly and/or people suffering from dementia or Alzheimers


  • 3mm thick polycarbonate
  • Internal Height: 8.4cm
  • Internal diameter: 7cm
  • Size of hole at rear: 3cm

Delivery: Next working day if ordered before 4pm
