Broken nipples ?

 Not Land Rover but may be of use with a sheared nipple ..... not tried by me but spotted on the web and thought it looked good, helicoil style.

That seems like a money spinner for them.  They don't identify a thread and you will probably therefore buy their nipples at 5 for 25, or 5 each.  I have never paid 50p for a nipple yet alone 5.00

Because they make both the tap and the nipples it could be a completely non standard thread for which there is no hope of buying nipples that fit from anyone else but them.  Having bought the kit and having worked out what a rip off the nipples you may have to use actually are will you stop using the kit, when you have the drill and tap, or because you like the system, just pay through the nose for the nipples.

Hook them, then reel them in......
