How do the No-Spill™ drain plugs work?

No-Spill™ Systems’ draining design has a stainless steel, spring-loaded valve inside every drain plug. This oil drain valve remains closed until the No-Spill™ drainer is attached to the drain plug. Once the drainer seals itself, the valve opens, and the oil begins to drain through the hose in a clean and controlled way.

Do I need a drainer for every vehicle?

No. The drainers are designed to fit all of the plugs within a series (i.e. one of 1002 – Drainer Large Straight fits all large bottom plugs in the Standard series).  If you are unsure of which drainer you need, please call us at 1-888-4NO-SPILL (1-888-466-7745).

What series is correct for me?

The series depends on the application, and style of draining. Standard plugs are common where clearance is not an issue. Compact plugs are used where clearance is a concern. Speed-Click™ plugs are very popular with all sizes of fleets.

Does any oil get left in the pan?

No. No-Spill™ drain plugs are designed to sit flush with the pan. Therefore, all of the waste fluids are drained quickly and easily.

Can I drain the oil hot?

Absolutely. This is one of the main advantages of using No-Spill™ Systems.

Can I use a Suction System?

All three No-Spill™ designs can drain by gravity or suction. Simply connect your suction system to one of our drainers and non-return valves.

What if I can’t find a size?

No-Spill™ Systems maintains over 500 combinations of thread sizes and patterns in our warehouse and we can custom make any thread pitch or size. Please call us with your application, and we will find the size for you.

Is there a minimum order amount?

No. No-Spill™ customers and dealers can order as few or as many plugs as are required.

What are the Shipping Terms?

Product is shipped FOB Origin. UPS Ground is the most common shipping method.

How many of these drain plugs are in use?

Millions and millions.

What are the plugs made of?

The plugs are machined from solid brass bar stock.

What is the warranty for the drain plugs?

No-Spill™ drain plugs are guaranteed for life for workmanship and materials.

Do I need to buy a dust cap with my drain plug?

No. All No-Spill™ Systems drain plugs come with a dust cap.
What if I lose my dust cap?

No problem. All No-Spill™ Systems drain plugs remain closed when not activated by the drainer.  The dust cap’s main purpose is to keep the plug clean. Replacement dust caps and dust caps with chains are available for a small fee.  Chains are another option to keep your dust clap from going missing.
