Customer Questions & Answers

how do i get the snake to unwind from the spool so I can use it?

Asked by: Judi
Great question, had the same challenge! After removing all of the product sticker(s), I had to attach the end to an anchor (in this case a hook in my garage wall), and then pull. I left it anchored and pulled out the full 20'. Then i coated the tape with a lubricant and wound it up using the handle as close to the center as possible. Am hoping the lubricant will coat the insides to make the pull much easier in the future.

Unwind and push through to the clog turning the whole thing in you hands to spin the auger. Though you will likely have to disassmble you drain and it could not get through our sinks s tube to get to the clog.

This auger gets caught on the plumbing fixtures!

Hi there--I have a kitchen drain that is weirdly plumbed and sometimes gets clogged, even though I'm careful to use a trap for food debris; The U-trap is about 4 ft from the drain itself, with a long stretch of pipe leading to it. I've used this tool twice, trying to avoid calling my Super, and it gets stuck on something in there--this last time a plumber had to remove it for me, so I'm obviously not going to stick I in there again.. :( Is there something I could do to the augur on the end to make it smooth? Cover it with epoxy or something? It's getting hooked on the rivet which holds the screw on, I think. Ever heard of this problem? Any suggestions? The first time, I got it out by pouring a bunch of vegetable oil down the drain...!
Asked by: DrB
Dear DrB – thank you for your question. We do not recommend modifying the sink cleaner for your application. A drain cleaner with a round wire such as the BC91015 (Store SKU # 167436) or the BC84150 (Store SKU # 157345) with 1/4 in. diameter and 15 ft. length may be more suitable for your requirements. Please remove your sink p-trap prior to using either suggested drain cleaning tool. If you have additional questions on product selection or use, please feel free to contact one of our product experts toll-free at 800-835-2200.

It is inexpensive to purchase and may save a great deal of your time. It is a tape as opposed to a spring which means it can make tighter turns. You may be able to use it without taking of the trap. Which saves time. It also means you cannot turn it to bore through serious clogs. But it will work for most of the day to day things like hair and mild grease which is what I most often have to deal with.

I tried snaking an old galvanized trap for a tub. I went down through the overflow but it wasn't getting anywhere. Went to another store and purchased an 8ft long 1/4" round cable. Chucked it into my drill and away it went. Not sure how this flat snake will do in other applications..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snake for sinks Great product. This product helped me finally remove a clog in a sink drain. I tried a larger snake but it was too large to go thru pipes used this worked instantly. Great price too not over expensive. The flat tape design makes it easy to slide thru pipes. I would recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy & inexpensive tool as first option for sink clogs Highly recommend this tool for a first step, even before chemicals, to address sink clogs. Strong and flexible, with enough length to reach likely clog spots, I'd buy this and try it before any chemical decloggers, or at least buy both. Great for hair clogs, especially.

That makes the first bend in the pipes easy however if the second bend comes at an angle ie. 90 degrees to the first the product would need to bend against it's width ,that is not going to happen...

When I used it as the instructions said to the metal tape broke the plastic housing and injured my hand. I would not recommend it nor ever buy it again myself. I had to wrap gorilla tape around it to continue using it.

Cheaply made, plastic handle will break with more than moderate force! The screw end will have to screwed in to drain and good luck unscrewing it out. Product is a junk don't waste your money on it.
