A blanking plug has no moving parts, so when its tight it will retain the oil in the sump for ever.
These other devises are set to fail with moving parts, o rings, levers etc.
I can live with a few spilled spots of oil but couldnt live with a valve that fails and the engine loosing all of its lubricant.

If it is of a ball valve design (according to the video) then it should be just as good as any other plumbing valve.

True, but general plumbing isnt subject to the constant vibration or the risk of stone or stick stick to undo it.

Yeah you'd actually be surprised with how many things use drain valves. These EZ valves have been used at the factory level by many named equipment manufacturers. They have been subject to rigorous testing, and obviously have been granted engineering approval. As for tampering, that's never happened and nobody knows that you have a valve on your car to begin with. There's plenty of other methods to really screw up someone's car anyway, so that's really least of your concerns about someone crawling under your truck. Besides what would you do if you saw someone doing that? Don't think there are many guys that want to mess with Powerstroke owners...

If someone really wanted to ruin your day and your truck wouldn't it simply be easier for them to pour a little water in to the fuel tank, a cup of sugar is the method of days of old and it doesn't involve them having to crawl under the truck to do so. Not to mention if they wanted to empty your oil pan chances are that they crawled under there in the first place with a wrench or ratchet and socket in the first place.

Guess I have a tendency not to sweat the small and improbable stuff. Gotta be careful out there or the "what ifs" will wear you down quicker than life in a reality tv series.

I'm excited to try my valve out. Only a couple thousand miles to go and I'll get to try it!

I miss the old 1/4 turn plug on the 2011 oil pans. That was a nice piece of hardware with no chance of the oil pan rusting.

Guys, I've said this before, but here goes one more time. You can drain the oil with absolutely no mess if you just unscrew the drain plug but don't allow it to come all the way out of the hole. I do this when the oil is warm not hot. The oil will come out slowly and is easily guided. NO NEED to take the plug all the way out until the oil flow is slowed way down. NO NEED for a huge drain pan that is half way to the rear axle. Try it this way once and you will see how easy this is.

Happy and safe travel to all!!

Jim

But when putting the plug back in, there's always a risk of stripping the threads. It happens all the time. Yes, I agree that the easier to change oil if oil is warm. One more thing is that with the EZ oil drain valve, you can control the flow of the oil 100%. With just a plug you can't do that. Once you pull it, that's it.

I may have missed it, but why did the OP change his oil three times in one week?
