Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stefan How to release a couple stuck on a grease fitting
Got a stuck coupler on a grease fitting? No problem.
These stuck coupler complains are an information problem.
The couplers are a two piece screw device. If you unscrew the coupler halves slightly, then the coupler will release. The customer's coupler was too tight to release the tangs inside it.
Notice the groove marks on the coupler for unscrewing and adjusting! Finger tight is about right. No pliers!
Unscrewing the coupler too much will result in the coupler falling off or popping off under pressure. Do it right. Finger tight or less.
There are no instructions about this on most brands of guns.

The first time I used it on my Cub Cadet mower, it got stuck on the fitting. I broke the fitting on my mower trying to get it off. I'm returning it to the store with my grease fitting still in the coupler.

I bought this gun over the winter to grease the fittings on my boat and ATV. I have used this gun 3 times all 3 they have locked on to the fitting and broke them off. Dont waste your money!!!
Extreamly upset will be taking it back.

Horrible, cheap gun. Waste your money on something else. I can't believe this passed quality control.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EliteInfidel works like a reliable $30 dollar grease gun
I expected this gun to not be as nice as it was for the price and it even has an air bleed valve! Read the directions. Simple to use. prime up the gun with the grease. Snap the end of the hose into the nipple, pump the handle till it overfills slightly, wipe clean, pull off the adapter on nipple by pulling it sideways and out with your hands. It doesnt get stuck you just have to have a little grit. Just changed the tie rods on my f250 and lubed them up no problem. You should grease your chassis every oil change so this will save me a trip to my buddys shop everytime.

The gun is only rated 4,500 psi no where near 10,000 psi but other than that it works great

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jetskiguy Works great for my jet ski trailer
I have the Pistol grip version of this Lucas Grease gun and combined with the Lucas Marine Grease I use it on my jet ski trailer. I am quite happy with the gun and the grease, have been for years. I know others have posted about the connector getting stuck but I researched and learned to loosen the coupler a little and it works just fine. This grease gun and a tube of marine grease is always in my truck.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Yummpin Much worse than expected!
I bought this a few days ago. The ratings were good and it was the only handle pump HD had in stock. It is made of high quality parts but I fought with it for 2 days to get it to work.
I followed the instructions and they are very bad. Not my first grease gun. After loading the tube and sealing both ends you are suppose to release the T bar and make sure it is attached to the rubber plunger. There is no attachment like other models I have owned and the problem is this that if that plunger cant get past the tube shell, there is no pressure and no what to force it in like the instructions say. So no pressure on the grease and no grease comes out even if you use the air vent.
I loosened the coupler per instructions so not to break off the Jerk joint. It took everything I had to break it free. I took it all apart to get the grease flowing and the flexible fitting would not fit on any joint. My old gun and other attachments worked. A few hours later I was able to get the coupler on but it was a bear to remove.
The fact that they do not supply an extra couple for the stiff attachment is just cheapness since my old ones will not adapted to this ones threads.
