EZ oil drain valve

For those of us that change their own oil, I was wondering if anyone has used the EZ oil drain plug? I first saw it last year in motorhome magazine and was thinking of getting one before my next oil change but wanted to look at some input first. The cost is last than $30 for the plug and it looks easy to use and install, What do you think?

Have used them on both of my motorhomes. Never a problem and a really simple way to change oil.

I use one on my Dodge Ram diesel, makes for a real nice and easy oil change. This engine holds a lot of oil, the first time removing the drain plug it gushed out of there and made quite a mess. That no longer is a problem.

I use a similar valve on all of my vehicles including race cars. I suggest taking a look at the Fumoto brand - the original designer of the valve.

I use the Fumoto quick valve. It has a very positive locking spring. Sure makes changing the 15 quarts in the 6.0 a breeze I also have one in each cooling drain

I have used both the EZ Oil and the Fumoto. Currently using the Fumoto. Both were great for making the changes painless and clean. Never had any leaks or issues.

I use the Fumoto with the nipple to attach a drain hose to bypass a chassis cross member. Without it the oil drains directly onto the cross member. Makes for a no mess drain.

I changed the oil about a month ago and installed a Fumoto valve then

I bought the snap on nipple thing and put a 2 ft piece of hose on it.

Next oil change should be a little cleaner and easier: Snap the hose onto the valve, open the valve, and come back in 20 minutes.

Thanks for the input guys, after looking I went with the Fumoto also, was able to get the kit with hose, safety clip and everything needed. Also got 10% discount for father's day.
