We don’t hear many complaints about the LockNLube® Grease Coupler. But one thing people say (usually before they try it) is “That’ll never work, it’s too big!”. If that’s the case, we must be crazy to take a coupler that’s already “too big” and make it even bigger…
Well, another thing we hear from our customers (usually those who are using the product) is that on certain U Joints and shielded PTO Shafts, the grease fittings are so deep that they’re just out of reach of the original LockNLube® Grease Coupler. They asked us to make a long-nose version so they could keep the same locking technology, but get behind shields and into holes where those stubborn Zerks hide out. Traditional couplers could reach those fittings, but they’re leaky. And, getting them off once they were done greasing leads to a lot of broken Zerks and busted knuckles. The easy release lever on the LockNLube® Grease Coupler XL is as important as the extra reach when working on recessed grease fittings.
We made this short video to show off how much reach the LockNLube® Grease Coupler XL has, and show that it still keeps all of the great features of the original LockNLube® Grease Coupler that keep it from leaking or popping off under pressure.
