Quick oil drain plug

Anyone used one of these before? A friend just installed one and it looks pretty convenient. Just attach a hose and drain right into a gallon container.

only problem i can see if you use the one to attach the hose, how much clearance do you have. on my charger i have a plastic plate that covers the bottom of the motor, so no problems. haven't been under the my maro yet. i have used this item on several other cars and trucks, works great.

Looks like it would stick out at a right angle to the pan. Thanks for the feedback.

Very popular on the big rigs. We see them all the time. They work great and prevent your threads in the pan from getting screwed up from removing the stock plug all the time.

I've used the Fumoto valve on several cars with good luck. It has a spring loaded tab that rotates 90 degrees to release the oil. I've read some write-ups where people complain that some of the old oil doesn't fully drain out to due the height of the internal threads of the fitting.

I put a similar drain plug on my wifes car. It was made by Fram. You just had to uncap it and screw on a hose fitting that made the oil flow out. Never had any leaks or problems with it.
