Tow Mixer Drain Port Plug

“I use the Hand-tite Plug, which is the only tool that works, to seal the drain port in a mixing device called a tow mixer. The tow mixer is a livestock watering tank mounted on an axle from a rear drive vehicle. When the mixer is towed, the wheels turn and spin the axles’ differential which is pointing at the sky through the bottom of the tank. The tank is filled with water, the newspaper is added along with Portland cement and then the mixer is towed. The “U” channel spins with tremendous force smashing the entire mix into pulp which is then drained into forms by removing the Hand-Tite. We tried a lot of different ways to seal the drain port but the Hand-Tite was the only one that worked – even though it is not designed for this purpose.
