Works great and easy to use. Beats the heck out of trying to find a third hand when using a grease gun and trying to keep the nozzle engaged on the zerk fitting. Wish I had found it sooner.
Can’t believe how much easier it is when greasing with this thing. I was previously using a pair of Vise Grips to hold the hose end on the zerk because it was so tiring on my fingers. This thing makes greasing laughably easy.
Whoever invented this thing should get special place in heaven.
Used one of these for about 10 months. Just now starting to leak a little on slightly worn zerks. Now I can put in the repair kit that came with it and go another 10 or 12 months. That is at least 10 times longer than what a standard coupler would last me. I use a grease gun most every day. Great product.
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!!!
When you lock it on it stays in place & no mess. A ONE PERSON OPERATION. I bought 2 of them. One for a Air grease gun & one for a hand pump.
This is easily the best grease gun made. It also makes more pressure and will put grease in stubborn fittings that don’t take grease with a hand pump gun. Quality is excellent. Holds approximately a half of a 5 gallon lug of grease. Does not leak all over like every other grease gun. I will never go back to the old cartridge guns. With two people, you can grease a machine in no time and move on to the next and next and next all without running out.
Filling is pretty much sitting down for 15 minutes and filling with a trowel from a 5 gallon lug of grease. It is also pretty heavy when full.
Easy to use; best device I’ve purchased for landing gear maintenance.
Not much to say except “EXCELLENT”, This product is as advertised…If your on the fence, get off it any buy this.
Great addition to grease gun. Really works well. No need to try and hold on zerk in unreachable places. Excellent!!!
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.
Do you grease things? Of course you do or you wouldn’t be reading these reviews.
I debated this product for some time due to its price. I wish I hadn’t, I should have bought ti as soon as I found it. It would have saved me even more time than it already has.
I have a tractor with a loader, backhoe, snowblower and mower deck. All together they add up to dozens of zerk fittings that need grease throughout the season.
The hardest one to grease though is the backhoe. It has small holes through the arms where you need to insert the grease coupler to get to the zerk. My old coupler would attach but then since it was threaded through a tiny hole in the steel backhoe arm you could not twist it off. So I would have to unscrew the coupler form the end of the grease gun hose to get the thing out. With this new fitting that it is a thing of the past.
The locking/unlocking thumb lever makes it super easy to attach and remove. In addition this has helped greatly with stubborn clogged/stuck zerk fittings. With the mechanical attachment the coupler no longer pops off like my old one would when the pressure built up.
I recommend this hands down to anyone with a grease gun. Is it pricey? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Put it in your cart already.
Das ist mal wieder ein hervorragendes Werkzeug.
Kein andrücken des Mundstückes und gleizeitiges Pressen mehr.
Aufstecken und schon gehts los.
Nichts geht mehr daneben.
Nicht ganz billig, aber ich würde es wieder kaufen.
Aus meiner Sicht eine ganz klare Empfehlung.
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.

I have several of these now and they are worth every penny I have paid. I have a lot of farm equipment to grease and I have an assortment of grease guns, some with flex hose, some not, some air fed. My biggest complaint with the standard adapters that come with all of these products is the amount of fine tuning required to:
1) either get the thing to stay on the grease fitting
2) to get the darn thing off the grease fitting when you are done.
I have busted my knuckles many, many times pulling the grease gun off and having it come loose and bust my hand up. The flexible hoses are the WORST. I no longer have any of these problems. Gone. Done. Never to be seen again. This thing does not leak, it does not come off by itself, but it DOES come off very easily when you want it to. This past week I used a flexible tube with this nozzle to pack a bunch of wheel bearings in one of those inverted cone contraptions. I had to exert some heavy force to get the grease down thru the bearing. The coupler stayed right where I wanted it and in fact I could lift the cone up using the coupler to see if the job was done.
The size of the adapter.. Some fittings are thru a small hole down inside the machine and there is no way to get this into the hole or get your hand in there either. But that is a small percentage of the fittings I have to deal with.
Cost. Yes, it is a bit expensive, probably costs more then the grease gun you own. But it is worth every penny in my book. I currently own 4 of them.
Well so far not a single person that has bought one that doesn’t like it? Wow, they must be doing something right, or this is one he!! of a conspiricy to suck us all in
You normally get someone to complain about any product no matter how good it may be.. but this.. sheesh..
It arrived today and I tested it by greasing the recessed loader fittings on my DK35. At times it is next to impossible to get the gun off those fittings, even with a loosened coupler. The LockNLube works great and I’m glad I got it, even with the $7.95 shipping and Canadian $ exchange rate.
I’m sure I’ll grease the fittings more often with the new coupler.
A joy to use. My blood doesn’t boil,I don’t throw things anymore. And I don’t need 3 hands!
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!
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.
Love this! Makes clamping onto obscure and tight clearance zerks a breeze, doesn’t pop off if I dont get a good clamp and no more pliers trying to get it to grip.
This is the best gadget since Velcro if your greasing a lot this will cut grease time down 2/3 the time
They certainly did pass the Lance test….and the Jared test and the Nate test. Some of the zerks they have to get to just plain would never take grease. They do with this coupler.
It is a beautiful thing from what Lance says.
This product delivers everything it promises. Stubborn grease fittings are no match for the lock and lube tip.
The pressure release makes removing the nozzle easy without a mess.

Diamètre 15mm comme un coupler standard Ingersol. 17mm au niveau de de la plaque soudée de commande. La perfection n’est pas de ce monde sauf dans celui du graissage grâce ce à lui. Utilisé sur quad Can Am Out 400 en particulier sur cardan arrière Parfait. Facile à positionner, à clipser, pas de fuite, et à retirer.
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.
So much easier! It’s a little bigger so you need a little more room, but SO MUCH easier to use.
Great tool! Bought one for myself then had to buy five more because everybody wanted to borrow it. Bulk refill superior to standard gun refills and not too heavy for the volume carried.
Oh my love, where have you been? Without you my life was difficult and incomplete.
If you service heavy equipment get one of these. Before this miracle product greasing joints on our bat wings were exercise in frustration. Now it takes around 1/10 of the time, cleanup is a cinch, and we don’t waste tubes of grease!
It’s new but so far I love it. Having to never change out those small grease cartridge again is worth it alone. The pressure relief feature is very nice as it makes disconnecting very easy. Someone commented about it being heavy and it is but it does hold a lot of grease. I bought a 5 gallon container of CRC Sta-Plex red EP premium grease and almost used half of that container in the G.Gun. I did have to bang it down (like the directions say) to bleed the system of air. Plenty if pressure when pumping grease. With one pump it moves a lot of grease. I pump with my foot and if I’m down low I can pump it with my hand. Great for big or small jobs.
