Default new for me grease tool,

Normally I don't post this type, mostly because I don't like being told I'm wrong/stupid/idiot/kristy owner. But, I've had such good results I want to share.

Friend of mine stopped by and saw me fighting with some zerks. New grease gun of reasonable quality (lincoln) still had trouble getting seal and releasing on some fittings. I'm not a newbee to maintenance and know most of the tricks.

He suggested: https://locknlube.com/ coupler.

$30 us dollars at my local NAPA. Works as advertised. Oh my, yes it does.

Just ordered one on the way. The video looks like me greasing my Tucker. Can’t be wasting Scott’s Specual Sauce like that.

Add this to a Milwaukee cordless grease gun with the 2 speed option, put it in low range and put grease in zerks that haven't taken grease in years!!

I have such a rig and it rocks! The grease gun isn't cheap however...

Regards, Kirk

One of the zerks on my tensioner is a pain in the butt. I spent 10min trying to shove some grease in it getting blasted by wind and blowing snow. Many swear words were said. The whole time I was thinking that there had to be something better. I will be ordering one of these for my Milwaukee grease gun. Thanks for the tip Cidertom. You all have probably found your favorite grease already but I really like this brand https://www.greengrease.net/ it's expensive but works great.

Got mine in the mail yesterday. Took a minute to get the stock tip off of my Milwaukee grease gun. Once on, the new tip works as advertised. One of my zerks on my tensioner is almost impossible to fill and with the new attachment it filled super easily. No mess, no hassle, quick, easy, and very functional. My tracks are fully tensioned and it's almost comical how easy it was.

Default Re: new for me grease tool,

Lincoln also makes a really nice model, I believe it's built better, but the diameter of the tip is a little larger than the lock n lube. I have both, on dewalt grease guns. My only suggestion would be a longer handle on both, after blowing through a few cases of grease a day my fingers get tired. Also the lock n lube comes with a rebuild kit, I have not seen one for the Lincoln but maybe I'm just missing it. My 2 cents....

I've had this 90 degree end fitting for quite a long time. Had to buy it to get at one fitting on my 1990 Ford truck. Very handy to have for things like snowcats that might have been customized and made grease fittings impossible to get to.

That would have made servicing the old lamtrac easier. With no less than 40 grease nipples to tackle it was a grueling job.

I use one pretty much every day around our farm. They work really well. Another company called Univer-Co makes another version..... don't bother with that one, waste of money.
