I also have them on my Honda CR-V and the brides Town & Country.

They would never accidently open but for those that worry we sell the insurance policy in the safety clip which when installed the valve couldn't open period!

^^ so this will not open when i go in tall grass or in corn fields? seems like a corn field rubble would hit it open.

If you use the safety clip I would say it would be impossible to open the valve. I use one not the reason I am worried about it opening from high grass or such. I am worried about a 10 year old crawling under the truck and opening the valve.

They drain slow, but I like it.

That's pretty neat, I might get one.

Nope not even without a safety slip but with the safety clip I guarantee it won't.

Or an older person with a grudge.

I know people say they drain slow but I really don't find oil changes a race. It's about efficiency and cleanliness for me. I take the dust cover off my valve put the hose on and direct thru the hole in my catch pan. Open the valve and move the pan under the filter and remove the filter while its draining. By the time I get the new filter on the pan is drained. I close the valve clean the inside with a q-tip and replace the cover. I will never own a vehicle without one again. :thumb

14 qts was too slow for me for it to drain, so I threw it up in my attic to be found in a few years.

If you don't want it you should give it to me :)

I think he said if you drive to AZ and find it in the attic it's yours.
