Oil Change Valve??

So has anyone had an experience with an oil change valve. With the skid plate its always a challenge changing the oil both getting the bolt out and also getting the oil to drain not on top of the skid plate (there is a hole but its not perfectly aligned and I have to shove cardboard up there and move it around)

So oil change valve??

QuickOilDrainValve.com - the best way to change oil

this is by no means the brand I am going to use (idk anything about them) and if you don't either there is a link to what I am talking about.

Any input is nice thanks.

Hey, I have a one. I also have Skidrow Eng/Trans Skid plate. This drain works well with it, oil drains perfectly though the cut out in the skid plate. Only con that I have is.... It drains slowly. Just make sure your oil is nice and warm.
I got sick of fighting with a rachet, extension & swivel socket to get the drain plug out.

I think they are the same company

I also have a Fumoto and it works well, but a bit slower on the draining because of the bore size of hole in valve.

I put one of these on the last time I changed my oil. Haven't used it to drain yet but I am sure it will be less messy with the Skid Row skid I have under there.
Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.
