Wheel bearing grease

I noticed Riff Raff sells an ABS greasable block off fitting,

Has anyone used this?

I don't believe I have any wheel bearing issues, but that's the point, I don't want to have wheel bearing issues.

If anyone has used it, your thoughts/tips,etc would be appreciated

I lube my unit bearings (06) you would be disappointed to see how much grease you can get in there at least 8 pumps with a large gun
i just use the rubber gun tip u can buy anywhere to fill the ABS port

i do mine when i have them off or at least the hubs off so you can watch the grease

i used a non graphite grease to keep the ABS signal happy

i had about 80,000 one one when i did it since I had to replace a seal

i did not do the other side at the same time kind of to do a test but at 100,000 i had a seal on that side go out
so i filled it up when i was there i won't complain if they have any issues 104,000 miles
on large tires is OK by me I will replace with Timken when the day comes

I have one and use it, it's cheap and less of a mess for me. Though you can accomplish the same thing with different tip for the gun.
