SMART-O Drain Plug Available at Walmart Tire and Lube Express Locations Nationwide

Branick is proud to announce the May rollout of their SMART-O Drain Plug product to more than 2,400 Walmart Tire and Lube Express locations nationwide. The SMART-O plug is designed to reduce the risk of engine failure by using an o-ring created of heat resistant material, which expands upon contact with engine oil. This action works as an extra seal to reduce the risk of oil leakage through the threads, and helps eliminate the self-loosening of the plug when exposed to the vibrations of a moving vehicle.
