1.0 out of 5 stars Turbo-Snake Flaw, December 28, 2009
This review is from: Turbo Snake - Original - 2 Pieces Included! - As Seen on TV (Misc.)
I tried the turbo snake and found a design flaw. I used the "sink snake" piece on my sink and in just one turn, the plastic coated sheathing and velcro head stripped off, leaving me with a silver wire. I had read the directions, and worked slowly and did not tug hard on the snake when removing it from the drain.

Luckily, I was able to pull the stripped off piece out of the drain. Somehow, by twisting the turbo snake, it appears that it is possible that the drain stopper itself (mine is plastic) can cut into the black plastic sheathing on the sink snake, causing it to break off.

I had thrown the original packaging away, so I can't return it to Staples. I also tried the tub version and that seemed to remain stable, so at least I have that version intact. I think the idea is a good one, but the fact that is sliced-up so easily was a disappointment and a flaw in the design. It appears to be made cheaply and not durable. I would not recommend the Turbo Snake for this reason.
