First off, I premeasured my drain with a digital caliper, it was 1.62". What I read, people that have a 1.5" tub drain and it didn't fit, I was concerned. Perhaps the wall thickness of the metal is where it varies? So I started using a tub drain removal tool, worthless. It just broke off the crosshairs out of drain. I heated he drain up with a heat gun to soften the old plumbers putty the I used a 30mm impact socket with industrial strength, double sided auto tape. Fired up my air compressor and inserted socket into drain and tried to impact it out...nothing. I searched the Internet and found this. 3 days later it arrived and I again, heated up the drain/old putty, tapped the removal tool in (*note* a few light taps are good as the tool has teeth that bite in as turned counted clockwise) I put my 2 foot, 1/2 drive breaker bar on it and a couple grunts later....it was loose. I was considering cutting the old one out with a die grinder prior to this...thank goodness it never came to thank. ORDER THIS, BE PATIENT AND SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF GREIF!

Like others, the internal strainer on my drain had broken and I needed a way to remove it. I had tried the drain key product with no success. I then picked up this tool. What a night and day difference! The drain key uses knurled aluminum grips that stripped on me the first time i used it. This one is solid steel and had no such issue. To use it, I pre-heated the drain with a hair dryer to try soften the old plumbers putty to reduce the amount of force needed to turn it. I then set the tool in place and hit it a couple of times with a rubber mallet to set it. After that it was easy to turn out with a 1/2 in ratchet. Before I found this tool I seriously thought I was going to have to cut the drain out potentially damaging the plumbing, the tub, or both. This tool saved me a ton of work and prevented me from practicing my four letter word vocabulary. Whoever created this tool, my wife thanks you!

For those of you wondering how wide this thing is, I'll try add a couple of images.

My drain was severely corroded with not only the cross broken off, but the sides were falling apart too. I wasn't able to find anything to get it out at the local hardware store so decided to order this tool. After receiving the item, I immediately tested it. Since the sides of my drain were severely eroded, this tool did not have a tight fit with the larger drain diameter. I did hammer the tool in and got a snug fit but upon torquing the drain, it still slipped. In the end, I managed to get this tool to work by biasing force along one side of the drain so it will bite on. I essentially had this tool sitting at a slight angle for it to catch and turned it slowly until I backed my drain out.

The spokes in my tub drain flange were corroded and quickly broke when I tried to remove the flange. This tool worked perfectly with very little effort. Simply insert in the flange, tap lightly with a hammer so that the teeth engage, and then use a ratchet with an extension to remove. As other reviewers mentioned, it's a very good idea to heat up the flange with a hair dryer in order to soften the old plumber's putty.

This tool appears to be of a high quality steel and thus very well made. I highly recommend purchasing this inexpensive tool to keep in your tool box. Skip the needle nose pliers-between-the-spokes option.

Like many others, I needed to replace a stubborn drain that no longer had the criss-cross connector. After trying and failing with the pliers method and then again with the claw hammer method, I resorted to this little gadget. I wasn't thrilled with the price seeing as how I was only using it on one drain and may never use it again, but that's the life of a home owner.

The directions are easy to follow, and the extractor gripped the the old drain on the first try. Since I didn't have a 1/2 inch ratchet drive, I used a wrench to turn the extractor. The first two turns took a lot of muscle power, but then it was easy after that. It took me less than 5 minutes to get the old drain out, including getting this thing out of the package and getting out all my tools.

Some users have questioned how you get the extractor out of the old drain when you're finished. Simply hammer from the bottom and it pops right out. Took me two good hammer strikes to get it out.

If you're trying to get an old drain out of a bathtub, you might as well get this.

This was worth every penny. The center X had rusted and broken out of the bottom of the old drain, so a standard 'dumbbell' X tool would not have been helpful removing the old drain. With this tool for removal and a dumbbell X tool to screw in the new one, the entire repair project literally took less than 30 minutes from start to finish! Note that you need 1/2 ratchet set or a 1/2-to-smaller reducer--I used a reducer with no problems. Also note, the tool is tapered just a tad too much to grip from top to bottom; however, by tilting the ratchet about 20 degrees off center, and pushing down on it, I was able to create enough of a grip on two sides of the drain to move the thing right along. Once it started, it was a out in a jiffy. Even if I never use the tool again, it was worth it for the time it saved me and for helping me avoid the damage I might have done getting the old one out.
