    Lock-n-Lube XL

    I'll blame this one on Tim Marks

    Really - even with a pistol grip grease gun - it can still sometimes be tricky to keep the gun on the zerk (and sometimes get it off too).

    Looking forward to putting this guy into action Click image for larger version.

    Other than a on-line order, we have no dealers locally.

    Our local JD dealer sells these. Anyone own, or ever use one.
    It's offered by Univer-Co.

    Yes, I have one of these. I also have the Lock 'N Lube. The only flaw with this one is that if you have a sticky zerk that requires a lot of grease pressure this coupler can be nearly impossible to release. Unlike the Lock 'N Lube which releases easily no matter how much grease pressure is being exerted. That is the reason they had to come up with the grease pressure release valve. Which, the two combined is just too much of a contraption.

    Other than that it works ok. If given a choice between it and the L'n'L my choice would be the Lock 'N Lube.

    I have both. The Univerco is compact, while the Lock-n-Lube regular is bulky. If I were to use the L-n-L exclusively I'd have to change a lot of Zerks from straight to 45 or 90 degrees.

    Maybe I should look into whether a quick connect coupler is available for grease guns and keep two or three whips handy; one with the Univerco, one with the L-N-L, and one with the old-school PITA tip.

    Thanks for the feed-back. Looks as though I'll have to order on-line.

    I tried to find the link on your website, but it seems to be unusable??? Can you check it out?
    Don't know, maybe I am doing something wrong.

    This is what I see. All other links are viewable.

    I do appreciate it Ilmo.

    They have a dealer locator on their website

    https://locknlube.com/pages/dealers

    Or you can buy it directly from them on-line, Amazon.com, Walmart.com, or ebay. For all these places it is sold and shipped by Locknlube.
