Quick Valve™ plugs oil hole in Sweden with plans to expand across Europe

Quick Valve UK announces the launch of its first independent distributor, Kar-Bo Products, who now supply the range of oil drain valves in Sweden. Kar-Bo Director, Bo Brundin, has over 10 years experience meeting the needs of customers in the automotive industry and is ideally placed to serve the Swedish market.

Quick Valve UK Ltd, as the main European after-market valve distributor of the Fumoto oil drain valve, is now set to expand their network and is looking to bring on board additional distributors to help roll-out the product in other European countries.

The Quick Valve™ simply replaces the standard sump plug and allows for a cleaner, quicker and easier oil change. Technical Director, Richard Griffiths, explains: “The valve screws in place of the traditional sump plug. Unlike a sump plug which is removed every oil change, the valve stays in place to simplify servicing; you don’t even need to use any tools. Simply follow a four-step process of: unlocking the retaining lever; rotating the lever; allowing the oil to drain; closing the lever. It’s as easy as that.”

No mess, no hassle and no tools are required. Less workshop time means a serviced vehicle can return to the road much quicker, eliminating the traditional hassles associated with messy oil changes and stripped sump threads. The valves already have a proven track record in the domestic and commercial vehicle markets having been used extensively across the USA and Canada where they are fitted at factory level to a variety of vehicles manufactured by Ford, Caterpillar and Freightliner in addition to being fitted as an after-sales accessory.

Managing Director, Mark O’Hanlon, explains: “The oil drain valves are the patented design of Fumoto Engineering of Japan; over 7 million valves have been sold worldwide. They are suitable for being fitted to most vehicles and the valves even have the proud distinction of having been granted ‘genuine part’ status by leading vehicle manufacturers Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Isuzu, Subaru and Mazda. This is a huge testimony to the reliability and durability of the product.”

The Quick Valve™ provides a practical solution to a longstanding problem and can be purchased in Sweden from and across the rest of Europe from Quick Valve UK Ltd, a mail order company based in the UK:
