Will the EZ Oil Drain Valve hose connector fall off?

I just bought 3x EZ Oil Drain valves for all the cars in my househould, I'm not worried about the drain valve itself falling off, but rather the hose connector. Anyone ever experience that?

What are you using to secure it to the nozzle?

The hose nozzle comes from the manufacturer, it threads into the valve, I'm just wondering if anyone has ever experienced it loosening & falling off during driving.

Oh, it's a threaded connector to attach a hose.
Considering it's threaded, it shouldn't fall off.

Use some blue loctite or the equivalent for your favourite thread locker compound

Good suggestion...I always assume loctite was permanent like an epoxy.

There are different grades for different permanence.

OP, it won't fall off, especially with some Loctite. Unless it's exposed and is hit by something. Your oil pan is probably aluminum, so purple Loctite would be ideal.

Or just leave it off until it's oil change time? Would just need to be finger tight if you're just using it at the time of the oil change.
