Stahlbus Oil Drain Valve
stahlbus Oil Drain Valves
Oil changing can actually be fun! With this system you can drain your oil safely and cleanly, without any spillage or dripping, or even getting your hands dirty.
Simply replace your existing oil drain plug with the stahlbus Oil Drain Valve. To change the oil, unscrew and remove the protection cap and fit the quick-release hose connector. The valve only opens once the connector is locked in place, and the oil can then be drained into a suitable container. When you disconnect the hose connector, the valve closes automatically, and you simply screw the protection cap back on.
The benefits at a glance:
- No contact with the oil
- Easy-to-use quick-release connector
