Clean and safe oil filter changing

Brand new to the Laser Tools range is this pair of oil filter removal cups (part number 8571), designed to be used in conjunction with an oil filter wrench to undo and remove the filter.

Laser Tools says it eliminates the need for the user to handle the filter and preventing any splashes or spillages of hot engine oil.

Loosen the filter with an oil filter wrench, then offer up the removal cup — its flutes will grip the filter and let you spin it off.

There are two sizes in the set: 180cc, to fit oil filters measuring 63 – 67mm in diameter; and 240cc to fit 73 – 76mm diameter filters.
