The Japanese unit looks to be well built, I tried a Fram Sure Drain on my Jeep and the washer leaked. The only potential problem I see is leaving a few ml of dirty oil where the threads reach up into the pan and there will be a small pool of oil that sits below the threads and does not enter the orafice, if the orafice is flush with the inner wall of the pan then this is not a concern. This would be easy to measure. One other point, the flow with the sure drain was extremely slow, I like the fast flow for speed and better flushing of the pan. I notice in the pictures what seems a rather slow flow as opposed to the fast stream of an open bolt system.

I have solved the mess problem with a wide mouth catch pan with a capped pour spout and an anti splash rim, I also use a $6.00 large metal drip pan under all this. I only recycle oil once a year or longer by pouring all oil into a large 7 or 8 gallon plastic gas can dedicated for oil only.

Thanks for the reply. One of the FAQ questions responds to this concern.

Q.Does my Engine Oil Drain Valve protrude into the interior of the oil pan and prevent full drainage of my engine oil?

A.No. The threaded oil drain plug hole is always reinforced to accept the threaded bolt of the drain plug. Your Engine Oil Drain Valve will not extend past this threaded portion of the drain hole and will allow the oil to be properly drained. Your Engine Oil Drain Valve will let you drain your engine oil while it is hot without burning your hands and it is much more effective than trying to pump the oil out from above.

Do you find any metal on the magnetic drain plug on a regular basis or mainly just after the engine is new?

I use Turbomag which is a magnetic disc that sticks to the stock bolt. Yes, I do gen a fine magnetic powder on the bolt but much less so, keep in mind, I would have very little metal floating since I use a Filtermag too. Here are the results of my first oil change with Turbomag.
