i think all autoparts stores have them.

Put some high temp rtv silicone on it and barely tighten it. wont strip it the rubberized silicone wil hold it in place and keep oil inside the case

I use a Fomoto Drain valve with nipple, comes with new gasket and make for a mess free oil changes one of the best $30 I spent on my truck.

I personally won't use one of those drain valves since someone could easily dump the oil out of the truck and if something hit the valve it could open going down the road. That's just my opinion though.

I very rarely leave the pavment and it barely sticks out so hitting something with it is not a prob. And if you have to worry about someone draining your oil you have bigger things to worry about. Plus the truck wont start with low oil. I would say how long would the average person crank it over with out checking the oil and other things, but some people just drive'em and nothing else
