Anyone tried or use this? Wondered if it was a worthwhile tool for oil changes? Seems like it would make things easier.
It might even be marketed under different names as I think I've seen it elsewhere called something else.

Take care.

I'm not familiar with that one but have another option you might want to check out. I use a Fumoto Oil Drain Valve on my Bus and I also had one on my Workhorse previously. I use them on some of my construction equipment and they are trouble free. Just a flip of the wrist and the oil drains - no tools needed. If you get the "N" version there is a hose nipple on the end that can help direct where the oil goes, which can be handy if you have a crossmember in the way. It's great on my Bus because I have 7 gallons of oil to drain so I can put 3-1/2 gallons in one bucket, shut it off, and switch buckets.

I have another brand name (I forget which) on both car and RV. Works fine.

I'll second the Fumoto valve. I'm always worried about slowing the flow out down in any way because I want any solid "junk" to exit with the oil. I worry about your example trapping any solid particles inside the pan but maybe I'm just paranoid.
