Grease zerk assortments

grease zerks

I have a cheap assortment here - they probably came from Harbor Freight. Only about half of them will hold a grease gun end.

That gets pretty old in a hurry. I just had another one out of 2 work today. Some grease zerks are not changer friendly. It's a pain to have to change them twice no matter where they are. But in a tight spot, it can be really irritating

Does anybody have a link to a kit with good quality grease zerks?

I've replaced some of mine last year with the ones down at O'Reilly's Auto Parts.
Never had an issue as of yet.

I'm sure the majority of those things are coming from a prison camp in China

I have one on one of my grease guns. Works good but doesn't fit everywhere.

The grease zerks that I have problems with, were brand new and would not work, even with the lube locker
