Smile considering using "quickvalve" for drain plug

Hello Everybody,

I was thinking of installing a "quickvalve" to replace oil drain plug.....Has anybody had any experiences with "quickvalve"? Good or Bad?

Thanks

no experience, just creeps me out. Remember its the one thing being used to contain the one fluid which is the life or death of your vehicle.

Had one on another car years ago. Never had a problem with it and it was very handy when draining the oil -- back then it was every 2500 miles -- and it stayed on the car when I sold it. Since then I don't work on my cars any more and have no need for the quick plug.
