I prefer these over other types of oil drain tubs because this one comes with a handle, it's small and easy to store, and the lip on it doesn't let oil slide down to the underside of the tub. It is simple and practical with no flashiness to hike up the price tag. It is the Ron Swanson of drain tubs.
Spend the 4 bucks. Yep. If you are questioning it, just do it. Its a large bowl shape. Large enough to catch a messy skid plate oil change. Easy to pour back into one of the many oil containers kept from the auto oil changes. Just buy it .
