How to Choose Magnetic Oil Drain Plug?
The magnetic oil drain plug is safe and can easily remove all the metal particles in motor oil by using extreme magnetism. A common misconception about magnetic oil drain plug is that it is unnecessary since the oil filter is capable of catching any metal particle that might cause significant engine damage. As a matter of fact, these tiny metal particles are about 25 microns and your oil filter can only capture particles larger than 35 microns. BONOSS Titanium magnetic drain plug is made with a neodymium magnet, which will adhere to the metallic particles in the oil, keeping the oil clean. The oil will flow more smoothly through your engine. So how to choose the safest magnetic oil pan drain plug for your vehicle?
The Key Factors Include:
- Size: thread pitches, head diameters…
- Material: steel, Aluminum, or Titanium?
- Design: styles, practicality, safety…
- Manufacturing process: forging or casting?
In this article, we’ll go through in detail how to choose a magnetic drain plug.
What Size of Magnetic Drain Plug Do I Need?
The first factor is that whether the magnetic drain plug fits your oil pan. A common misconception is that as long as the oil drain plug has the same thread as the oil drain pan, they will fit and work well. To tell the truth, all oil drain pans are not designed the same, which is why different oil drain pans requires different plugs. The head diameters, magnetic tips, and seat types are some of the differences. It is recommended that choose a magnetic oil drain plug that is the same style as the original equipped one. At BONOSS store, we have lined up these magnetic drain plugs according to the specifications of the OE ones. All you need to do is telling us the model of your engine, simple and high effective.

What’s the Material of BONOSS Titanium Magnetic Oil Drain Plug?
When talking about safe oil drain plug for your vehicle, material selection can be very important. There are mainly steel, Aluminum, and Titanium. Considering the strength and lightweight needs, Titanium is more suitable. Titanium alloys possess high mechanical properties, not only have great fatigue strength and tensile strength performance but also maintain great strength at extreme temperatures up to 400 to 500°C. They are light in weight, also have extraordinary corrosion resistance. Due to the forged process, they become hard and tough. The strength is greatly enhanced. The magnetic part uses a high-strength neodymium magnet, this allows it to work well even in high-temperature conditions. It can operate in temperatures to 230°C, far past the working temperature of engine oil.
Are BONOSS Titanium Magnetic Oil Pan Drain Plug Worth It?
BONOSS forged Titanium magnetic oil drain plug consist of a standard bolt with a neodymium magnet and a pure copper gasket (or Fluorine rubber ring). It is an effective design that make the plug seal better, preventing the oil pan from unwanted leaks. The diameter of the magnet part is up to 8mm, which provides stronger magnetism and wider magnetic coverage. This allows it to better collect metal particles and other harmful metallic fragments in the engine oil, effectively removing them from circulation. Due to the permanent magnetism feature, you can reuse them during routine maintenance oil changes.
