Compared to some of the reviews on the quality on other lift and turn items like this, including how much many it would have spend to purchase some authentic moen ones, I decided to give these a try. The reviews were solid, and at least from the picture it looked sturdy and the color is nice, so I said why not.

First off, know that if your drains are older, these run a little smaller, but will still fit fine, so be prepared to do good clean up around your drain where the old one might have left a ring or it will look odd. If you already know how to loosen your drain, these are a cinch to put but you do have to make sure that when you screw them in you balance them properly when you screw it in. I had to go back and re do one drain because water was pooling and I realize it was because I had to slightly adjust the lip.

Also these come with rubber to put under the drain before you install it, but I would suggest you do not use them, and use plumbers putty instead to create a solid seal. When I lifted my old drain, the previous plumber had used rubber and it literally was melted off and left an ugly mark on the drain that was a challenge to clean up. I did the best I could, but since the plumbers putty would be the new seal anyway, it worked out anyway and completely covered the damaged area.

Overall its a solid piece of hardware, although I do have to deduct points on the lift and turn top, as it is a bit flimsy despite the fact that you screw it so that you can lift and turn it. Even though it is as tight as can be, it kind of droops a little from side to side. So even thought it does the job and closes well, my older was despite its age, was much sturdier and stood straight without the need for a screw. It also was taller when it stood, where this one falls a little lower. Once installed, the drain does work perfectly, and drains much better then the old one. I would suggest removing your drain every six months to check for clogs just as a part of regular maintenance.

The overflow cover works as expected, and screws in easy so it is the last complicated part. Most of what you will do is clean up of the old areas, which after a long time, can be a little ghastly.

Overall, I am happy, the color matches nicely, and the drains work properly. It also did not take them a million years to ship, and the company is responsive to emails.

A win win, and my bathroom project is complete!

UPDATE: If you have hard water, be prepared to clean these on a regular basis. The white residue will show up on the bronze color quite noticeably, and if you do not take the time to remove it as quickly as possible, the damage can be permanent.

We had a handyman install this in our tub drain since our other drain mechanism had broken leaving an open drain hole. We were tired of having to keep the bath toys from flowing fown rhe drain costing expensive plumber visits. our plumber quoted us over $250 to fix our drain :( So i bought this and The handyman said it was super easy to install. It took him less than twenty minutes to do it once he brought the right wrench (sorry, don't know which one he used, but it wasn't a standard one from the tool kit).
The main issue with the unit was that I ordered the chrome set and they sent me the oil rubbed bronze one. Even the box said chrome. It was an annoying inconvinience, but Amazon switched it no problem.
Overall, a good product. It's decent metal, easy to use and doesn't leak.

This is the third and final drain of this type I have installed in the past few weeks. The others came from Lowes and an ebay seller. Needless to say, the quality of those was decidedly lacking.

This is a solid piece of hardware. It feels heavy when you first pick it up. The finish is very nice. The bushing is brass, unlike the cheap plastic that Lowes sells. The lift and turn component is solid on its spindle unlike the ebay offering that felt like a wobbly top. And most importantly, when engaged, water stays in the tub.

If I had bought this product instead of trying to save a few bucks on items that were poor quality, I would be have saved money in the end.

Oh yeah, mine is the oil rubbed bronze. Nice color!

Thankfully, the fine threaded neck on this drain fit my existing plumbing. The extra bushing is meant for course threaded plumbing, in case you have that size. Be sure to check your existing drain before ordering one without this bushing (did that...returned it). They were easy to install (don't forget plumber's puddy under the drain) and they match my existing polished brass faucets well enough, considering my faucets are 30 years old. I wish I had replaced the chrome parts and rubber plug years ago!

Quick delivery and an exact match to the other Belle Foret articles in the room.
Recommend replacing the brass expander on drain with plastic one if pipes are plastic/PVC also.

Product as advertised. Installs somewhat loose. If you try to tighten it to much it cocks off to the side.

This is a very good quality item. It has the adapter with it, so it can be used with either a coarse of fine thread drain. I did purchase an addtional one for my 2nd bathroom remodel.

This is very pretty and heavy duty- I am pleased with the initial product. If this holds up in water I will be thrilled.
