Quick Oil Drain Valve

Has anyone got any experience with these drain plugs? They seem useful in theory, especially if you change your own oil. http://www.quickoildrainvalve.com/

Looks like a quality product at first look. However, if it would spin off the filter as well then that would be good too. I think we still need to get a bucket, rag, and a couple of wrenches to do both the oil and filter. If you use it let us know. Good luck

Yeah the one with the hose connection makes it sooo much easier to divert the oil where you want it

Cool idea. Just keep an eye on it. I remember hearing early products like this would eventualy rot out the seal inside and left several people on the side of the road with burned up engines. Ouch.
