Screw-On Funnel Eliminates Leaks
With its screw-on cap and how it’s designed to close, the Screw-On Funnel eliminates oil leaks and drips. Adapters that come with it ensure that the funnel works with 98 percent of oil bottles.
“It’s the only screw-on model we’ve found on the market,” says Ryan Gill, operations officer for Express Products in Grandville, Mich. Two Canadian brothers developed the prototype a couple of years ago, and the Michigan company purchased the rights, modified the design and patented the Screw-On Funnel.
“The neat thing about it is that it’s not just a funnel. It closes up on itself to retain fluids in there so you can use it, and it won’t leak after,” Gill says. “Because you screw it onto the bottle, it’s protected from the outside environment. So, it keeps the fluids clean with no bugs, dust or contaminants.”
The durable, bendable 29-in. long 3/4-in hose also makes it easy to fill oil tanks in hard-to-reach places. A breather valve can be opened to prevent a vapor lock and speed up the flow. In addition to adapters to screw the funnel onto different types of bottles, a smaller tip can be added for transmission fluid.
Besides using it for oil, diesel truck operators use it for DEF. At about $20/retail, customers often buy more than one funnel to use for different applications, Gill says.
The new product can be found at truck stops and some farm supply companies, as well as through the Express Products website and Amazon.
