Oil changes are super easy as it is.. if I were to move to a valve type oil plug the only one I'd trust is: http://fumotousa.com/
The problem with all these doodads on a 4x4 is they hang low and are then easily damaged or broken if you go wheeling.

Is it really that hard to use a ratchet to undo a bolt and let gravity do the work?

These things are a solution to a non-problem.

Thank you. Someone once said nothing will ever hit it when installed on a Deuce because of the axle. Yea might be fine if you were always going forward. Ever get pulled out of a ditch backwards. I would never put one on anything but my boat so I would not have to stand on my head in the bilge to get to the bolt or drain my oil.

If you use on your boat you must cap it. If it gets loose your engine may fill with water. This is a problem unique to the devices with twist to open valves like ball valves.
