I'll be the test dummy.

Their site indicates that it only hangs down 1/2" more than the stock drain plug.

I'm nearly positive someone on here uses those on all their cars and swears by them. I remember a post about them awhile back. Just waiting for them to chime in

Fram Sure-Drain. I wont touch a Fram Oil filter, and I won't put one of these on my engine drain plug, but for a convienant way to get tranny fluid out of the transmission, it works well. The hole is too small for engine oil, though.

Oh, and the sure-drains are about half the price, have a brass cap, an o-ring to seal it, and a hose to stick into a bottle.

hmm, nice thought, but umm my only concern would be that its blocking a bit of flow and maybe leaving a bit more in there than i would feel confortable with. My thinking usually tells me that the high flow of a fully open drain hole would let all of the oil out AND the motion would bring out the sediment as well.

Stock tip: Buy Fumoto. It'* going to spike in about a week after this spreads all over BC.

lol.

I'm going to order two - one for the Accord and one for the Saturn since they both have leaky drain plugs (most likely stripped by a lesser grease monkey than me).

I have them installed on two of my three cars, including the Bonneville. I like them a lot. Really makes an oil change a clean process.
