What is the name of the chain oiler?

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a post on here that showed a chain oiler device that is used when the bike is stationary. It uses a copper wire to hold the can of lube and the device together. It places the lube right where you need it, over the o-ring area, and it reduces lube "overspray".

I attempted to order it on-line couple of weeks ago, but I found my PayPal account was in "lock down" so I was not able to order it. Does anyone know the name of the device? Is it possible to buy one without using PayPal?

Thanks!

Silly question from me: How do these things work? Are they constantly dribbling oil onto the chain? Doesn't that lead to a build up of too much lubricant, or am I missing something here? Just wondering, thanks! I've been interested in these but can't seem to find out too much info.

I read about a Loobman here. Ordered one and never looked back. Push a button once or twice, ride away. Just the right amount of oil runs down to the rear sprocket lubing both sides of the chain where it needs it. I fill the loobman about each oil change with the same oil that goes in the motor.

Are you refering to the "Grease Ninja"?

The Grease Ninja is used only periodically, while the bike is parked. About every 400 miles or so. It directs the chain lube directly onto the correct portions of the chain, and keeps the overspray off your wheel, tire, and brake rotor. It saves on lube, and rags. I use the Dupont Teflon spray in the blue can, purchased from Ace Hardware, Lowes, etc. I use the Grease Ninja on my trials bike too, works great. The teflon doesn't attact dirt like some other lubes do. If I've ridden in the rain, I find it helpful to clean and lube the chain soon afterward.

LOL

I named mine Tadozukushi!

I used an on-line Ninja name interpreter. I typed in "Luber" and this is what it came up with. I need to get a life...
