Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Tap TBL1 Valve



Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Tap TBL1 Valve, For

  • TBL1CM/ Colour: Chrome
  • TBL1BF/ Colour: Brushed Finish

Please read below before ordering any valves as to which valve to order. 1. Because this Tap is a Bridge Lever Tap, it works differently from your standard two lever tap due to the levers being horizontal when the valves are turned off (closed) AND 2. Rangemaster do three different Belfast Traditional Bridge Mixer Taps and the Valves are not the same in these styles of Taps but details of all three versions are explained below to assist you.


Two things that you have to do is

  1. Identify which Rangemaster Bridge you have , and
  2. Then order the correct valve for the water feed you are trying to fix (they work the opposite way from what you would expect and all details below about this)

1. Which Rangemaste Bridge Tap do I have ? – the Valves are for the two earlier more ‘traditional’ in style Belfast Bridge Taps. TBL1

We have pictures of the two versions of this tap and if you compare the pictures here to your own, you should be able to identify which Tap you have. Take your time to save ordering the wrong valve. Check gallery pictures too.  On this product page you can only order the 1265R 24 spline valve and the 1212R 20 spline valve.  We have included below the picture of the more ‘modern’ looking Belfast Bridge Tap which takes a different valve, 3561R with 28 splines.  You won’t buy this valve here.  If you have the more ‘modern’ version, go here to buy the valve.

2. Which Valve to buy, CO or ACO ? WHICH BRIDGE TAP DO I HAVE?
VERY IMPORTANT: Provided that your Levers are extended outwards (like open arms) when Turned OFF (which is the correct way it should be fitted)

  • Cold Water Feed (right hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a HOT CO

  • Hot Water Feed (left hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a COLD ACO


(which is the opposite to what you would expect, but horizontal levers open the opposite way to standard two lever taps).

Here is some further detail / explanation:

Provided your Tap has been plumbed correctly i.e. that the levers are extended horizontally when Tap in OFF position (and the Hot feed is on the left and the Cold feed on the right), then please note the following:

The norm in Industry when referring to Cold or Hot Valves usually means that a Clockwise Opening Valve is known as a Hot Valve (CO) and an Anti-clockwise (ACO) Valve is known as a Cold Valve. However, in a Bridge Lever Tap where the Levers operate Horizontally rather than Vertically, the opposite applies (provided your Tap is plumbed as described above). This means that you would need our 'Hot CO' Valve for the Cold Feed and a 'COLD ACO' for the Hot Water Feed. If in doubt, remove your own valves first and order the same i.e if your own Valve has a blue seal, order the Cold ACO Valve. If your own Valve has a red seal, order the Hot CO Valve. If your own Valves have white seals, then the COLD ACO valve will have NO nick on the nut, whereas the HOT CO valve will have a nick on each side of the 6 sided nut below the splines. If still in doubt, order a Pair. . Please see here an example of a Bridge Lever Tap and note that the Hot Valve is on the Cold Side and the Cold Valve is on the Hot Side. bridge lever valves with CO AND ACO Symbols
