This product should be standard on every grease gun.
I bought a coupler at the CAT® store that had an adjustable jaw via a threaded end. It was ok but the lock n lube is superior in nearly every way.
Wish I had bought this a long time ago. works great on those delicate zerks threaded into materials other than metal – easy release, use on everything now.
I wish i would have invented this thing!!! Wow i can’t believe i ever greased anything without it for the last 30 years, this thing is so slick and easy to use.
Hooked to my Lincoln 1162 air-powered grease gun, this thing makes greasing an absolute pleasure.
WELL worth the money even if you only use your grease gun once or twice a year.
Comes with spare jaws should you wear these out (unlikely unless you work at a truck stop or tractor service facility!). Buy it! You’ll be glad you did!!!
Using this actually brought a tear too my eye. Never has it been so easy to grease our machinery. It used too be that if you talk about greasing a machine it was like starting a fight with your wife and you didnt want to go near it. Now greasing with the G.Coupler its like taking a walk in the park!
In all seriousness, this wee product might be costly compared too the cheap heads at 2.50 but the G.Coupler will save you that cost in the long run in grease and labour! Highly recommend!
“The grease gun is used across our full product range of Volvo Construction Equipment. Our clients have praised the grease gun’s efficiency, reliability and ease of use, even in the harshest operating conditions.”
So much easier! It’s a little bigger so you need a little more room, but SO MUCH easier to use.
I got this fitting in the hopes that it help out my everyday greasing and boy has it.
This is one of the best tools I have as a heavy equipment operator.
My machine has a lot of grease fitting and some are a pain to get into and stay onto but with the lock on fitting it makes every last one a breeze.
It makes what used to be a three handed job a pease of cake. I recomend anyone to buy this it will pay for itself in the first use.
If you do maintenance work and have to use a grease gun more than once a month, buy this guy. I have some hard-to-access climb-into machines and being able to just clamp this thing on is worth GOLD!
The coupler arrived a few days after my order was placed, it’s in a blister pack. Anxious to try it out, I got a couple of wrenches to remove the end fitting from my Lincoln 1162 Pneumatic gun. Thanks Lincoln for screwing the fitting onto the male threads using a couple of hundred foot pounds of torque! Using two pipe wrenches and a number of curse words, I finally got the Lincoln fitting off and screwed the LockNLube onto the end of the hose, snugging it up with a crescent wrench.
The operation of the thumb lever to expand the collet is smooth and easy. I was concerned with the greater diameter of the terminal end but it fit nicely everywhere including pins at the bucket end of the FEL where the zerk is in a counter bore on the sleeve and into the u-joint to reach the zerk fittings located there.
Press the thumb lever, slip the collet over the zerk and release. Pump grease and every last bit goes into the fitting, absolutely no leakage. Depress the thumb lever and the head easily removes from the zerk, no resistance at all. I repeated on all the grease points for the FEL and those under the machine, same result, no muss, no fuss.
For me the cost which included free shipping was worth every penny. I have wasted a fair amount of grease on stubborn fittings and always suspected that I was not getting sufficient grease into the u-joints which would lead to early failure. This tool does the trick. It is well constructed, easy to use and does exactly what it claims to do.
I don’t like grease guns, period. They are messy, can be finicky to prime and stray grease just jumps onto me, every time. To at least have the grease effortlessly go where you want it and no where else, without having to hold or depress the hose makes me like my gun, a lot better. You either grease your machine or pay a high price later. Anything that makes this task easier, for me is a very good thing.
Easy to use; best device I’ve purchased for landing gear maintenance.
This product is amazing. No grease gets out and there is no mess. How many times have you fought and dreaded having to grease things? With this couple you just lock it in, pump and go to the next one.
It even gets all the grease into hard to grease items like lower ball joints and ujoints. It holds up to the back pressure and forces the grease in, not out
I own a landscape and tree service and always have machines to service and grease. I bought 2 of the Lock N Lube tips and put one on my mobile service truck and one in our shop. The couplers have been in use a couple of weeks and are preforming great. There is less mess and less loss of product , less cost.
I think in the time we have used them we saved 3 tubes of grease over the 2 weeks. This is a direct savings of over $10 in 2 weeks. This product will pay for its self.
We use about 5 cases of grease per month and service machines such as 60 foot JLG man lifts, Bobcats, Morebark Chippers, dump trucks , and all types of mowing equipment. The only draw back is the we changed out about 10 fittings to 90degree to get the tips in to position.
The tip is a little longer than a standard grease gun tip. This was not hard to do and was worth the time to do it. In conclusion this is a great product and will save time, money, and a messy clean up.
Fonctionne super bien, pas besoin de forcer et pas de graisse à coté. La graisse sort au bout des axes donc ça graisse super.
Works great at least for getting grease into the steering box on my Cub Cadet GTX 2100 Garden Tractor
I used to feel like dumping the grease directly on the garage floor, instead of going through the pretense of loading up the grease gun. Now, with the addition of this coupling, every single pump of the grease gun goes exactly where you want it. Brilliant.
Fits perfect on the manual grease gun I picked up at wally world an grasps just right on my Moog grease fittings with a easy release. Which I’m happy for since last time I used a regular one I got it stuck, got p!ss3d broke the fitting when I snatched it then threw the gun in my field.
I am a 5’3″ woman. I have arthritis in my hands, and I own a Crane.
I was continually frustrated using my Lincoln Cordless Grease gun with greasy hands, trying to hold the grease gun tip on the zirk.
There is one task where I need to grease the turret of the crane while operating the swing function, hold the gun, pull the trigger and hold the grease fitting tightly on a zirk and its is really a contortion act to pull that off. Of course there was always a mess of grease to clean up!
I mentioned this problem to a family member who recommended LockNLube. I purchased it, and it was quick & easy to replace my old grease tip with this. It was very easy to latch onto the zirk, grease the fitting, and easy to release, plus NO wasted grease to clean up.
This is exactly what I needed. If I can manage it, anyone can.
As an industrial service technician who uses this daily and expects the best…This is it. I love this thing. I can hang upside down off of a crane, lock it on and not have to worry about it falling off.
I bought a G-Gun and it is the best greasing system available anywhere! Well worth the money. This thing saves a lot of time and mess.
I bought a 10 foot hose for mine so that it would more easily reach without moving/lifting the unit. This thing eliminates all the damn grease tubes and the inherent waste of both time and grease that tubes create…
This is the best gadget since Velcro if your greasing a lot this will cut grease time down 2/3 the time
Can’t say enough about this product, it is very easy to use and does a outstanding job at staying on the zerk fitting while greasing I am very happy with it. It maybe a bit expenses but well worth the speed and lack of spending lost time trying to unhook the fittings, in fact I am going to buy more for my operation.
I saw the great reviews of the item and decided to try it.
We have an excavator that we often have grease leak out when attempting to grease our machine. Now that we purchased this we don’t have any more issues.
This thing works great and you only need one person use it. We no longer have one person pumping the grease while the other holds the grease coupler on the nipple.
I would buy again. I know it is a bit expensive but it was worth every penny
Pumps a lot of grease under high pressure quickly, the locking nozzle works very well and I purchased extras for my hand and lever pump grease guns. I did get some of my stubborn fittings to take grease, but not all. I still found some that required taking zerks and pins out and cleaning them up to allow them to take grease. Definately works much better than hand operated grease guns.
This is an excellent invention. My partner spends a many a long hour greasing machinery. But finds it very frustrating when the greasing pipe comes off all the time. He had never seen anyone using this before, so he bought it to see how well it worked. Well, it works fantastically. Greasing is now a quicker and simpler process. He no longer has to hold the greasing pipe on anymore. It stays in place until he pushes the button to release it. No more wasted grease, so saves money. It is quite expensive. But well worth the investment. It saves time, money and above all patience. Its the sort of invention for someone who greases machinery couldn’t live without and wonder why it wasn’t invented years ago. Its a simple but very effective thing that he will not be without until the day he retires. Don’t know how long this will last as he hasn’t long got it. But it seems durable
I use this when I service forklifts.
I have used this on a lot of different lifts such as Crown walkies, stock pickers, sit downs, you name it and as long as you can get this on the fitting and the zerk is flowing it gets 99% of the grease into the fitting.
Its a great tool and I have all the other guys at the shop wanting to get one and I highly recommend this to all people who service grease fittings.
The only cons to this tool is the size of it and slightly on the price. 30 bucks is a teeny bit steep but really after you use it and see how much grease goes into the fitting and not on to the equipment it evens out in the long run.
Le produit est très efficace par contre sont encombrement est important. Il passe difficilement au sein de trou d’accès à des graisseurs présent ” en profondeur” au sein d’équipement.
Great for use on all grease fittings, but absolutely a necessity on press fit or fittings that are threaded into soft material like aluminum or nylon. I bought one for use on a machine that has fittings threaded into a nylon bushing because a regular coupler of course pulls the threads out. After discovering how clean this thing works, and how easy it is to get on and off, I bought several more and replaced all my couplers. Our front end loader needs to be greased every 10 hours, and this coupler cuts the time and effort in half. Has easily paid for itself many times in labor savings, etc. Buy several.
