N-Series Valve: Unlike the standard Engine Oil Drain Valve which was designed for automobile and truck applications, the N-SERIES valve is equipped with a Nipple to enable the operator to attach a hose and drain the engine oil out of tight spots and away where access to the plug itself and resulting mess are often problems. Like the standard Engine Oil Drain Valve, this spring assisted ball valve replace standard oil drain plug making oil changes easier and saving valuable time. Also ideal for oil sampling analysis as a small amount of oil can be drawn without shutting off the engine. The N-SERIES Engine Oil Drain Valve takes the mess out of routine maintenance on industrial engines. "N-SERIES" valves are not recommended for cars with low ground clearance. Please make sure there is enough distance from the ground.

I put one on my old truck and had it for about 10 years. No rust, the spring is firm to keep it from coming open too easy and the one with the nipple for a hose made oil changes a lot cleaner. There are a couple of other brands out there but they do not flow nearly as well to change your oil and are not even close in quality. If you want to make changing oil easier, need to replace a leaking oil bolt or just want to make it easier to do an oil change with less mess, this is the only way to go that I have found!

i bought one for my dad and myself with the hose fitting on it and i have never had a problem. was a bit stiff to open at first but still easier than pulling a drain plug with hot oil. slip a hose over it and use the supplied hose clamp and run the hose to your drain pan out from under the vehicle or just drain it down underneath the vehicle. i will buy another one for my cummins. Less mess on your tools, your driveway, and yourself.
