Rated 1 out of 5Â by GaryWI Doesn't hold up to use
I've bought these several times and the result is the same. None hold up to use, even infrequent use. After several drain cycles, the next time I close them and turn on the compressor, they leak air. I just bought a ballcock type and will see how that holds up.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by furniturebuilder So far so good
I have a Porter Cable pancake compressor and the drain valve went bad on me after about 6 months. After doing some research online, it was more expensive to pay shipping than buy the part in store. Also it would take 6-8 weeks for the warranty repair so 3 bucks was worth not waiting. I bought this piece and installed it in about 5 minutes. I used it for a couple hours with a brad gun at 120 PSI (tank pressure 150), and it's holding true. Guess I'll know more after a few more uses, but for 3 bucks and instant use, it's worth every penny. Also, unlike the Porter Cable one, this one is easier to turn with your fingers and seems to have a positive stop when it is out and in versus unscrewing too much.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by dlg49 This product is made to sale and not use
Does not work very well. Only way to get it to seal is use a pair of pliers and tighten it. Thought I would be able to shut it off by hand but no such luck. I have a feeling that I will not be able to shut it off completely before long even with a pair of pliers. I would not recommend purchasing this product if you are wanting something to use and that actually performs.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MWNinCT Not for proffesional / industrial compressors,
My local Home Depot does not sell the standard brass petcock. I tried this. There are no pressure limits stated on the packaging. The seal blew out at 160 psi. The pressure switch settings on most shop compressors I have encountered, turn on at 130psi and off at 170psi. The drain cock will likely work fine with smaller compressors that max out at 125psi.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DonnieO77 Works fine for me
I ordered two of these husky plugs (one to have a backup). I had no problem ordering from home depot...ordered online and they showed up in a few days. I tried shopping on another webstie aircompressor parts online and I could not complete the order. When I called, I was placed on hold forever! Forget it...whatever is easier for me!
