No mess oil filter wrench

pretty cool. I just wear gloves and put a plastic bag around the filter before I unscrew it.

your arms are already covered in oil from being anywhere near the underside of the truck... I usu just say F-it and then some fast-orange and I take the dishwashing detergent into the shower w/ me.

I have GOJO in the shower, oil filter always makes a mess. Its even more fun with a steering guard, that filter always splashes down in the drain pan.

Yea I got that email ad this morning, so I wrote to Eastmans telling them

"No mess oil filter removal tool, ha

This is a case of mis-leading advertising. No mention that this “fantastic” tool will not work on angled or horizontal filters. How many automakers fit perfectly easy to get to and vertical filters?

Send me one FOC to prove me wrong."

I will not hold my breath waiting for one.

I more times out of ten punch a hole in the bottom of the filter and let it drain out. Can't get my shiny new epoxy floor dirty.

Exactly. Plastic shopping bag around filter and this is no issue.

I take a plastic gallon milk jug and cut a big hole in it opposite the handle, barely loosen the filter, stick the filter in the hole in the jug (hang on to the jug with the other hand), spin the filter with a disposable gloved finger/hand, let it drop in the jug. let it drip for a moment or 2, and put a grimy shop rag below the jug as I pull it away to catch any drips remaining.

Kind of a thread hijack, but for those of y'all that hate strap wrenches, I bought this tool and it is incredible:

http://www.amazon.com/Lisle-63250-Ra...8757910&sr=8-3

When I had to change my oil filter it defied a strap wrench and lots of swearing. I was about to use the screwdriver trick, but I bought this tool instead. One try with it and a 3/8" ratchet and the filter popped right off.

You have to mod the spring first so that it won't pop off, but once that's done, it's worth every penny.

These? Or just the regular type?

Regular type. I don't even have to get that far under the truck. The jaw on them is like an inch or two bigger than the filter.

I just take a few drops of dishwashing liq and rub that into my hands/arms first. Makes cleanup really easy.

Plastic shopping bags, I always thought of you as a person that would have their own bag.
