    New from Lock 'N Lube... WHAT IS IT?

    Saw this new item from LnL in a pop-up today. Either my brain has gone to sleep or else they have done a very bad job on the marketing pitch because for the life of me I cannot figure out what this thing is for? I mean, it looks like it is an aluminum tube that holds a grease cartridge but there has to be more to it because no one would pay $40 for THAT.

    The description of "keeping grease tubes and Zerk fittings intact and ready to use" is part of what's throwing me. Keeping zerk fittings intact?

    Anyone else figure it out?

    What I get from it -

    It's an aluminum tube that holds a grease cartridge for storage. Looks like it has a way to mount it to a wall or something.

    As far as the zerks -

    Magnet holds up to 5 grease fittings
    Guessing it has a magnet somewhere on it to store spare zerks.

    It appears to be designed to store a grease cartridge and up to 5 zerks, but why???? Once I open a grease cartridge, it is to immediately put in a grease gun. And why would I want to store zerks? They must have been a little high the day they thought this one up.

    That's what I was thinking. I mean, I have a whole shelf of spare grease tubes. What would be the value of spending $40 to hang ONE of them on the wall? Chances are wherever I was when the grease gun ran out wouldn't be close to where it was mounted anyway. And spare zerks? I have a two plastic boxes that hold an assortment of SAE and Metric fittings. Not sure why I would need a couple spares hanging on the wall.

    LnL usually has some very useful and innovative products but I'm struggling with this one. :-)

    Well, I guess I am a little behind you as I only have a couple of spare grease tubes on hand. However I can match you on the spare zerks as I also have a plastic box of each SAE and Metric zerks on hand. Since I bought the spare zerks, I have not had the need for any of them....... But isn't that always the way it is.

    Iíve used my spare zerks a bunch of times. Most times it is replacing straight zerks with angled ones for better access. Iíve also had a few break off on some older equipment.

    The only reason I can think of for this thing is for in a truck tool box. If you just throw a loose tube of grease in a messy tool box and as you go down the road tools are moving around they will eventually smash against the grease tube and there will be grease all over everything.

    Now that wouldít be me or most of us here - but I have had to work out of a shared crew cab where many different people use it. The tool boxes were always a mess.

    I make grease gun holders out of PVC that I hang on the wall or on shelves etc. to keep any of the base oils that leak out from making a mess everywhere. Now I'll make a few just for holding grease tubes. $40 should make me a lifetimes supply....

    I think they were made for construction equipment that seldom leave a job site. I know when I use to fix tires on mining and construction equipment those guys always had grease guns and spares around because they would get used so much. I could see them hanging one of those on a piece of equipment. But other than that I can't see a real big market for those.
