Grease Gun Coupler

Recommended Posts

FWIW

Here is a great addition to your tool box, if you don't already have one. This coupler has a lever to either lock it's jaws onto the zerk or RELEASE the jaws from the zerk. Release being the operative word here. I have a coffee can full of broken couplers, most with blood on them from pulling ,prying, etc.on them just before they broke.

Plus, because of the way the jaws operate, they'll fit both SAE and Metric, which is a bonus for me because I have both in my stable. You can find them in several places on the web. http://locknlube.com/

I hope this will be of use to some of you.

Maybe good for the OP , but I really don't have a need for it . In more than 50 years of greasing things , I've never broken a zerk or a coupler .

 

Now , if he wanted to give me one as a door prize or Christmas present , I'd say thank you . But there's not a chance I'd spend 30 bucks or more for one .

 

Just my 2¢ .

It's a little expensive, but not so much about breaking grease fittings but more about lying under the truck trying to keep it on a fitting like a slip yoke and having it come off, cussing at it and getting aggravated and such.

I have one that you tighten up the threads to lock it on, but it's a pain and is too big to fit everywhere.

I'm thinking it might be good to lock on different attachments like those pointed needles for 4-wheeled vehicle u-joints where you are trying to keep it all together and it ends up leaking grease. They do offer a 30 day trial in case you don't like it; I might try one out, even though it is expensive.

X2 I hope it works as advertised as I just bought one

I bought it, it was expensive, but I want to spend my money before I croak and enjoy it while I am alive.

All that aside, I am glad I bought it and a 36" grease gun hose, instead of the 18" I always used.

Greasing has never been easier and not messy or aggravating.

Pretty nice to hook it on a fitting and have it stay.

Comes off easily too.

Get one of the American Express BlueBird prepaid cards - Cost nothing, no "approvals", No fees, & card is embossed with your name. And can be funded at any WalMart cashier with cash or from another debit card or by depositing a check from your smartphone.

 

Can be used online, & at ATMs and there is no overdraft - they just reject the charge - so your only at risk to the limit of your funding level.

I'd like to get it but I'm really gun shy about using a credit card that's tied to my bank account. If you can build a web site, you can surely set up PayPal in order to provide your customers a degree of protection against fraud.

Buy it from Amazon and use PayPal there. Just enter Locknlube in the search field, it's available, that's how I got mine.:)

If you want to protect yourself from credit card mischief, a free solution is to open a second account with your regular bank and transfer funds only when using the card. That way there is never any funds for the shucksters to tap into. Also on any online or phone orders, have then run the transactions as credit rather than under the ATM system. This gives you Visa or Mastercard protection making charge backs easier should the need arise.

Just make sure you specifically decline overdraft protection on that account. How can they "run the transaction as credit" when it is a debit card attached to the account. If you authorize the issuance of the card as a credit card, you are accepting some line of credit on that card and any bogus charges would go through against your line of credit regardless of whether you had any money in the connected bank account.

 

So keep the card as a debit only card only with NO Credit Limit (It still has the Visa/MC Logo and will work the same). Then any attempted charges for which funds are not available and if you declined overdraft protection will be declined. (Make sure your bank doesn't charge an overdraft fee for declined charges.)

 

But why jeopardize your banking relationship when there is a better solution - check out the American Express BlueBird prepaid card.
