Title: Fumoto oil drain valve.

Has anyone ever used one of these and how well does it work if you have?  Looks like a pretty nice deal without having to remove the plug every time,  especially if you have skids.

I've had one for a while. Works great but it does hang down a little. I have hefty skids and the valve is well protected by the engine skid, but I'd be weary of too much off roading without protection. That is part of the reason I got it, oil would spill everywhere inside my skid with the regular plug.

Only downside is it is SLOW to drain. However since you don't get your hands covered in oil(except for the stupid filter change) you can let it warm up a bit more than usual before draining, helps a little.
