What Is the Proper Way to Grease Zerk Fittings?


Wipe the Zerk off with a cloth rag or paper towel to remove fouled grease, dirt and grime that may have gathered around and on the Zerk.


Attach the nozzle of a grease gun to the Zerk and be sure there is a tight fit.


Hold the grease gun nozzle onto the Zerk fitting and pump new grease into the Zerk fitting with the grease gun.


Remove the grease gun nozzle from the Zerk and wipe excess grease away from the Zerk with a rag.
