After tried many different ways, I gave up.

I tried several of times getting this sucker as tight as it could go to find out it will just turn inside the drain and not grip and turn the drain itself.

I am getting a new tub drain, and piping, and drywall, and plywood all thanks to your tool.

the pasco drain key didn't work for me. after working for some time, I cut the drain with my jig saw. light tapping on the cuts did begin to unscrew the drain. Thinking that the drain key might make things go faster I appempted to use it again. Again, no joy. Easily finished the job with a hammer & screw driver. Drain key was a waste of money.

I bought this item from Menards for 30 bucks. My bathtub drain is old and rusted, and the crosshair piece was broken so there's no way you could use the regular drain tool to extract it. I knew from the beginning that this tool is going to work, but it would require a lot of strength to do the job, as demonstrated in a youtube video titled "Repairing my hair infested rotted out bathroom drain,lots of cussing". So, despite of the fact that there're some reviews here claiming that it doesn't work, I still give it a try, because I believe those reviewer simply didn't apply enough force to this thing.
And, I AM RIGHT. It REALLY needs a incredible amount of force to make it work, but I truly think this is the best way you could extract a rusted drain without any destructive methods. There're three key ideas one should keep in mind as they use this thing:
(1) You have to tighten the nut to the EXTREME, that is, keep tighten it until there's absolutely no way you can tighten it further, no matter how hard you try (assuming that you're using a 20cm torque to turn it). Don't worry about damaging anything; it's not gonna happen (the tool is very tough, you can't damage it). Oh, one very important thing, you have to use another wrench to lock the axle in place when you tighten the nut; I don't need to remind you that, do I?
(2) After that, the drain should turn together with the tool (if it doesn't, then you're not tighten the nut enough), but if you try to turn the tool using only regular wrenches (say about 20cm long), then you will have to be REALLY strong in order to do it (Well, certainly it might depend on the actual situation; some might be easier than the others, but I doubt anyone will consider it as a easy job).

the manufacturer claims that this drain key will work on both 1 1/2 and 1 1/4 inch drains. however, the tool has a stepdown (the smaller part at the end of the aluminum spreading part) that is supposed to be used for 1 1/4 inch, but it does not have anything to grip the inside of the drain like the part for 1 1/2 inch does. basically, it will just spin inside the drain. you can't get it tight enough to work. there are better options for removing a drain than this. if you are patient and have some confidence, just use a chisel and hammer.

I purchased this product since the cross hairs in my 31yr old tub drain were damaged prior. I tried several of times getting this sucker as tight as it could go to find out it will just turn inside the drain and not grip and turn the drain itself. I see some others have talked about its aluminum makeup vs brass drains and the grips on the tool getting eaten up. That happened to me as well. Not to mention that the tool does not grip much of the drain when using the smaller, stepped down size of Mr. 1 1/4" If you think about it too and how it actually operates by opening on an angle then just the lowest part of the grips are going to grab the drain. It would be more effective I think if it opened evenly/uniformly and the entire grip head grabbed.

At least if your working on a very old drain. I was trying it on a 1959 vintage drain, and it just wouldnt do anything but spin inside the drain.. Brass is a harder metal than aluminum..The drain is brass and the knurl on this thing, aluminum. So the drain just wore the grip right off this thing...Its worthless on a tough job.....

Went back to the tried and true,,,,,cut notches in the old drain and spin it out with a hammer and chisel...I cut notches with the dremel and tap tap taped with the hammer and chisel and spun it right on out, counter clockwise of course.

If you take the tool apart and lubricate the pieces that push and move against each other with grease and reassemble the tool it works smoothly with less effort. It will be easy to tighten the tool into the tub strainer/body. More force will be applied to the inside surface of the drain strainer/body instead of fighting the friction of the tool working surfaces without grease.

Item would not fit in my drain, which was within the dimensions given. It was so large it wouldn't even fit in the drain to get a grip...and Emmy drain was the larger of the dimensions given.

The Pasco Drain Key is a waste of money. I have tried it on three drains now it does not remove the strainer it just spins.
