Quick oil drain

Is anybody using the quick oil drain plug? Goes in place of the sump bung, has like a tap hand on it to drain the sump. Just wondered if it was any good?

I believe there was a detailed description with installation pics posted in an old thread - maybe a year or so ago ?

Just my preference, but I don't like drains that can be easily opened. Just seems like a accident waiting to happen.

They were used by quite a few member's on another board. They loved them and never heard of any problem's with them. They also have a lock to keep it from accidentally opening. Thinking about getting one next oil change. It make's oil change's so much easier.

Interesting item, but couldn't someone move the lever over and drain your oil. No tools would be needed to cause severe engine damage.

When I was a kid I was helping /watching my uncle dump the coolant out of his huge (to me) road tractor. It was a bit of a struggle as he had to pull a hose off for it to drain. I asked him why he didn't have a drain valve as it would make things a whole lot easier. He simply said, what you don't have can't break. Of course it might also have been that he never thought of it. But that bit of wisedom has stuck with me.

Chance's of that are one in a million. No one know's it's there in the first place. Your odd's of getting your oil changed at the dealer or the local oil change place and them not tightening the pan bolt are a whole lot greater. Happen to me, my daughter, a friend and other's I've heard of as well. That's why I change my own oil. No guessing if it was done right and everything else got checked or greased if needed.

I see your point, I too do all my oil changes, always have changed oil in all my vehicles, and my Harley.
I only had a problem when I took my truck to the local dealer to have my transmission fluid and filters changed. For some reason they thought I wanted my engine oil changed as well. I almost exploded when I seen my bill, which was much higher than I was quoted.
I jumped their *** about changing my oil and filter. I run AMSOIL XL Synthetic 5w20 oil and a Mobil 1 Premium synthetic oil filter. I had just changed my oil and filter less than 100 miles, 2 weeks, before getting the transmission serviced. They had to pay me $90.00 for my loss. I drove my truck home, and changed the oil and filter the next day.

I think I will replace my oil pan drain plug with the F106N: FUMOTO ENGINE OIL DRAIN VALVE WITH NIPPLE FOR DRAIN PLUG SIZE 14MM-1.5. This drain valve will allow me to add a length hose, which will allow the old engine oil to miss the frame/steering gear, and drain into a drain pan.
