Thank you Dennis_K
Any issues with oil splashing out when you first pull the plug and oil hits the pan?

Depending on how far the oil falls there could be some splashing. I don't recall any issues when using it.

Where I live the local recycle pickup will take drain oil if it is in 1 gallon milk jugs. So I use my marine oil changing pump to move the oil from the drain pan into the jugs.

You're most likely correct. It's just my frugal side showing as I think about the possibility of filtering and burning this stuff every time I take 10 gallons of drained oil in & dump it into the Walmart recycle barrel.

when I was a lot younger, you could buy recycle oil, to run in your hot rod, but I haven't seen any for sale in a long, long time.

Nope...didn't work. Tried both Fumoto and Quick Valve...neither show or list a cover that I can find.

Is this what you're looking for? They call it a retention clip...

Ok, with all this talk of the drain valves, I've walked to the edge of the cliff and I'm ready to jump. I'm wondering if I could control where the location of the lever is when I tighten it onto the oil pan...I would feel a lot better if the lever was up rather than down when attached to my side port. But with my luck I'm betting it will be hanging down - which will really cause me to worry about knocking it off. I guess there is only one way to find out!

Doing your own service on your DP? What oil drain pan are you using?

That is the clip I got. If you call quick valve customer service they'll lead you to it. They have great CS. I ordered one without hose nipple and decided I wanted the other. I called them and no problem. The valve handle has to be pushed up before you can slide it open. The plastic clip makes sure it can't inadvertently be opened.
