This has been a great help in reducing the mess while changing my oil filter. I cut the safety wire turn the filter loose 1/4 turn then put the filter bib on. I then can turn the filter off without getting oil dripping into the engine compartment. I can then take the oil filter to the bench to open it up for inspection and contain the oil in the envelope. A handy product that I will take with me on my Alaska trip.
Works quite well. Minimizes the mess of a DIY oil change. Just make sure to follow the printed instructions. Definitely worth the cost. The used filter will drop right into the bib when you unscrew it.
During the Covid-19 out break order the oil filter and bibs always great service at Spruce!
I have changed my oil and filter in my 172 twice now with these bibs and have got no oil spilled on my engine or hangar floor. If you read the instructions and carefully place the bibs properly they are easy to use and worth every penny. I highly recommend them !!
It is the second time I used the bib to remove oil filter. A very tight space around filter make it impossible to possible the cleanest oil filter removal process since owning an aircraft. I watch the video and make a lot cleaner.
These are very handy and worth the money
Worked well on my Piper PA28. There isnt much room between the filter and the fire wall, but was able to work the bag into place. No problems with the bag tearing. I will definitely use these from not on.
I love these. Changing my oil used to produce such a horrific mess on the floor. But with this bib, only a few drops of oil made it to the floor. Highly recommended.
Used on a PA-32-300 which has very little filter-to-firewall clearance. I made a mess during my first oil change and this product helped prevent that on my 2nd change. I read the reviews about seams tearing so carefully maneuvered it around wires, hoses, and components before removing the screw-on filter. I had to even turn the filter a bit using the bib and it did not tear. Product does what it claims and is very useful.
Per the supplier: These are not biodegradable or recycleable, and we cannot give the material they are made from. We suggest to refer to our web site for the specifications: http://oilfilterbib.com/specs/
It is possible but they are designed to catch the filter and be disposed of with the filter. You could take the filter out and probably use it again but I don't know if you could do that more than 2 or 3 times.
