Installing the No Mess Drain Plug changes the oil change experience. When you change your oil, you’re ready for a hot, wet, oily mess that seems unavoidable. You cuss and gripe because you know this is going to be a pain in the rear. But you know you have to do it, or your engine will suffer – and there goes all the money you poured into your vehicle!
But wouldn’t you rather have a BETTER way of changing oil on that 2007-2012 Acura RDX than the MESSY HASSLE it always seems to be?
Well, this is where my new invention – the NO MESS Drain Plug – comes in…
Think about it… the moment you unscrew that oil plug, you can’t stop that oil from gushing out. It goes everywhere! Especially if there’s a strong wind. You can even get HOT OIL blown in your FACE! (I’ve had it happen.)
My plug gives you an easy way around the MESS that occurs when using the standard oil pan drain plug that’s on your vehicle right now. After all, manufacturers don’t go to the trouble of designing “cool” stuff that makes your life easier or cleaner. That’s what after-market products are for.
This is THE after-market drain plug
to END ALL drain plugs!
Basically, it works because of the special holes in the center of the plug. When you turn the plug one-quarter turn, the holes line up and the oil flows out through a TUBE that you attach.
The tube is what captures the flowing oil, which allows the oil to drain where you want it to, without a mess.
Imagine the TIME you’ll save!
Listen: Changing your own oil shouldn’t be a big hassle – but it often is.
You probably dedicate about an hour of your free time – and it usually ends up being more, if you count all the clean-up that happens when there’s an accident or basic mess.
But with my “NO MESS” automatic oil drain plug, you’ll be finished with your oil change in minutes! Go ahead, time yourself. You’ll be shocked.
Clean-up? What clean-up?
You might need a rag or two, just to wipe your hands after you dispose of your oil. But that’s all I can think of. Everything else will be as clean as a whistle!
When it’s all out, you simply remove the tube and turn the plug 90 degrees – with your bare hand!
In the process of inventing this NO MESS Drain Plug, I also came up with an improved SUPER-FAST Oil Extractor that works like a charm with my NO MESS Drain Plug. This baby sucks all the oil out of your pan in a flash – saving you even MORE time whenever you change your oil.
I also invented an Oil Filter Drain Tool. The purpose of this tool is to remove the oil from the oil filter before removing the oil filter. This way, you have NO OIL to make a mess with when you remove the oil filter!
“Get ready for your LAST messy oil change…”
NOTE: You can install the No Mess Drain Plug using a wrench on the wrench perch or from the top using the finger hold and the hose nipple. Either method will allow you to install the No Mess Drain Plug from the side OR from the top.
NOTE: Be sure to route the drain hose into the pan to catch the oil.
NOTE 2: We highly recommend the No Mess Oil Extractor, which moves oil from the sump to the recycle bin without any need to a drain pan. Get yours today.
Every No Mess Drain Plug is made in an ISO 9001 certified factory, constructed with the best possible grade of carbon steel. Once they are manufactured, they are then coated with Nickel to provide a lasting protection against rust. All internal components are made from stainless steel and thoroughly tested before leaving the factory. The No Mess Drain Plugs are kept to extremely high standards and tolerances. We don’t want oil dripping on your driveway any more than we want it on ours.
All No Mess Drain Plugs are assembled and packaged in Clermont, FL where a select few are tested again before making it to your door. All No Mess Drain Plugs are covered by a lifetime warranty.
Have you ever set out to change your oil and noticed your drain plug threads are stripped? Or have you gone for an oil change and been told the threads on your oil pan drain are shot? In either case, it's not a fun prospect.
Because now you need a new one.
This can be a quite an expensive repair, and one that you can possibly avoid once you have a No Mess Drain Plug!
You have a vehicle and the drain plug size that is smaller than 14mm x 1.25. That drain plug size is included in the package, but since your drain pan or your drain plug threads are stripped, you're going to want to use a bigger sized adapter.
In the package, there is a 14mm x 1.5 adapter (adapter with the number 1). Use that instead to fix your problem!
First, you will need a 14mm x 1.5 tap if your drain is the issue. You can buy that online or at most local hardware stores. It looks like the image to the right.
Prior to using the tap, you need to pre-drill the drain pan with a 1/2" or 12.7mm drill bit. This is pretty easy to do because you will only be making the hole slightly larger than the original size. Take care to get all the metal shavings out. WARNING: Do no waller out the hole!
The last thing, is to tap the hole. All that means is that you will be creating the threads. Taps typically need a wrench to turn them because they are cutting the threads into the pan. Initailly, most taps start off wobbling around a little but after they cut a couple of threads, they will straighten out. WARNING: try to keep the tap as square as you can while tapping the drain pan. If you get the hole cockeyed, it may leak!
After the threads are complete, take care to get the new metal shavings out. You don't want those in the oil. Now, you're all set. All you have to do is use the 14mm x 1.5 adapter. Be sure to follow the No Mess Drain Plug assembly and install instructions on the "More Info" tab.
Problem fixed for under $10!
Yep, you read that right. The No Mess Drain Plug gets installed permanently and you'll never have to worry about stripping a drain pan or the drain plug threads again. By permanent, we mean you will never need to remove and replace it like the standard drain plugs. Of course, you can always remove it if you really want to... but why would you?
Now, when you need to change your oil, you already have the tool you need - it's the No Mess Drain Plug and your fingers. we do recommend using a hose and even an oil extractor, both are optional.Have you ever set out to change your oil and noticed your drain plug threads are stripped? Or have you gone for an oil change and been told the threads on your oil pan drain are shot? In either case, it's not a fun prospect.

Simple answer: it keeps the oil inside the hose so you can route the oil exactly where you want it to go.
Longer answer with a cool twist: we already covered routing the oil but then there's a hidden benefit to draining oil inside a hose: the venturi effect. You heard it here first - the venturi effect if your friend and makes oil draining faster.
Something about fluid flowing from a slightly larger hole into a slightly smaller hose create speed, which in turn creates suction. We have all experienced this but maybe we didn't know what we were looking at. Let's use a garden hose for instance: ever put you thumb over the end to make the water spray further?
That's the venturi effect!
You are limiting the flow of water and squeezing it between your finger and the hose tip, which creates more water speed and then the water sprays further. You're not going to get a spray effect with the hole but you will get an increased speed. So with a hose, your oil will start draining slight slower but end at a much faster pace. With a hose, you can forget the word "trickle."
In the past, the only way to get the oil out is to remove the drain plug, hopefully catch the oil in the drain pan and once you've waited a very long time for the oil to drain, you replace the drain plug. Well not anymore!
Then there's always the right sized wrench. Is it a 14mm, maybe a 13mm... oh wait, this one may be a standard size - a 5/8" maybe? If you're anything like me, you never really know and you spend quite a few trips going back and forth between the vehicle and the tool box trying to find the right sized wrench. You may even give up after a couple of trips and just use an adjustable wrench - AND THAT'S WHY your drain plug is slightly rounded now.
Now, instead of the same old boring remove and replace, you just use your fingers to turn the No Mess Drain Plug on. Let the oil drain and then using those same boring fingers, turn it right back off.
We all love to fish but not when it comes to changing your oil. We have done some statistics and found that about 99% of people have dropped the drain plug in that oil, used and sometimes even HOT!!! oil in the drain pan. The lovely thing (yes, I used lovely in a not-so-lovely kinda way) that you get to fish the drain plug back out.
When you're fishing, sometimes you're more clever than the average guy, so you use an extentable, magnetic retrieval tool. it works great and you can find the drain plug without burning yourself. BUT THERE'S STILL THE MESS.
Now, you have to clean off the oil from both the drain plug AND the retrieval tool.
Good riddance to that!
With the No Mess Drain Plug being permanently installed, you'll never be able to drop it into the used oil. Why are we making this so easy on you? Because we like you.
We all love this question: it's even hard to answer without being a bit of a smart ass. Of course we designed it to be as safe as possible. What have we done you ask? Several things in fact.
We use what's called a spring and ball detent: this just allows the drain plug to lock in the on and off positions. Our first versions had only this and we have never had anyone tell us it came on accienditally. We have also never had anyone tell us that their friend reached under their vehicle and drained their oil either (yes, we get that question ALL THE TIME).
Advice if you're worried about your friends turning on your drain plug and draining you oil: get better friends. Also, look for that huge puddle of oil under your vehicle before you start it... your friend just drained your oil and it's not a good idea to drive off without refilling the oil.
What else did we do? That's not enough?
No! OK - we did more.
We designed a saftey pin that threads down into the hose exhaust port and actually physically locks the drain plug in the "off" position. Yep, it has a lock. It's a clever custom nylon little black thing that looks almost, just like a finger screw.
The lock is not a key lock or a combination lock, it's a finger lock.. it's a safety... and it's easy to install and remove with your fingers. It will not stop your buddy from draining your oil but it will stop the drain plug from getting slapped "on" by an old stalk while driving across the corn fields, fleeing the scene, bouncing while launging with your buddy and spilling that drink all over your lap (you pick the buddy and the drink to imagine).
Bet you got a mental picture of that one! I did.
Here's another cool thing about that safety pin: it also keep the debris out. This is one thing we experienced in the past. Driving down the road, be it paved or dirt, stuff flies up. It may seem like a little dust but that collects. Eventually it can become an issue - so we plugged the hole and now it's not an issue.
How fast? How about roughly a gallon a minute?
Draining oil with the No Mess Drain Plug or the No Mess Filter Drain is cool, but using the No Mess Oil Extractor make it the bomb! The cats meow... totally awesome... inspired! Ok, enough with the idioms. Let's get down to the brass tacks. (I crack myself up sometimes)
Oil extractors are just pumps and they pump oil from one place to another. Some are manual, some are little motors. Ours is a 12 DC motor and after a bit of "re-imaging," we were able to make it work with both the No Mess Drain Plug and the No Mess Filter Drain.
Pumping oil is faster than gravity if you're using an electric motor: no one can argue that. Using our No Mess Oil Extractor not only moves the oil fast, faster than gravity alone, but it also allows you to skip the drain pan entirely.
Today is the day you pump the oil right from your oil sump into your recycle bin!
Isn't that a cool statement? Yes, it is.
With the No Mess Oil Extractor, you'll be sucking the oil out and pumping it right where you want it deposited. No mess made - no clean up to experience. Hop on over to our description of the No Mess Oil Extractor and we'll fully explain its use, it's hookup and everything else you may need to know.
