No. When installed, the EZ Oil Drain Valve only extends about 1.5 inch from the oil pan more than a stock oil drain plug in its closed position. The valve’s effective locking system requires a double-action mechanism to open it, preventing any accidental openings. Unlike spring-loaded gate valves, the heavy-duty ball valve construction will withstand any engine vibration.
For users under extreme conditions:
Using the EZ Oil Drain Valve under extreme circumstances such as, off-road vehicles, agricultural tractors, and logging equipment (i.e. corn fields, brush areas), it is advised that a hose clip as shown below be applied for additional safety and security. Hose clips can be purchased at any hardware stores and will securely keep the lever closed in the locked position at all times.
