Sad to say the Home Depot has quit stocking (or offering on-line) the old reliable DB 758-1 Chromed Brass Pop-Up Assembly. At first glance the Model 10727 Home Depot Brass Drain Body appears to be an able replacement as the installation was routine. That is until I installed the Model 10728 Home Depot Plastic Chrome Lavatory Drain Trim. As I wasn’t replacing my customer’s entire faucet, I wanted to utilize their existing lift rod. After following the directions and installing the EZ Connect tube that slides and wraps over the lift rod, I found the lift rod quickly came off in my hand with the second or third attempt of opening and closing the drain. The same thing happened when I installed the new lift rod as well. Now when something falls apart in the first few minutes of use there is a problem! Obviously this is poorly designed and would cause numerous callbacks if left as provided from the package. I remedied the situation by going to a local hardware store and purchasing two small 1” stainless steel hose clamps to take place of the loose fitting and fragile blue o-ring that is supposed to hold the EZ connect tube to the metal lift rod. Home Depot redesign this or simply cut to the chase and include the two small stainless steel hose clamps!

I bought this to replace the plastic version of the same product. With that one, the drain cracked where it threads into the trim ring in the sink bowl. I figured this one is metal and should do the job better. It did in that a crack didn't develop there. Instead, the plastic nut securing it from the bottom cracked after 3 months and let the drain flood my vanity. There's also a plastic nut securing the pop up lever too, so that's another week point.
The Everbilt metal one is similar in price and has a brass nut for securing the bottom of the drain, but it too has a plastic nut for securing the pop up valve.
If you're going to take your chances on this one, remember to use pipe tape everywhere. The thing comes apart into two pieces, you'll want tape there. You'll want tape around the nut as well, but it still might not stop water from seeping down.

I installed this item, unfortunately it leaked by the threads between the sink body and the rubber seal. Used teflon tape to stop the leak, and the tail piece of the unit gave up and started leaking. Don't buy.

While the drain body appears to be of good quality and solid construction, lift rod assembly is quite the opposite. Cheap plastic rod and a rubber linkage arm make this a piece of garbage. The "locking ring" locks very little. The first time I tried to operate the lifter rod, it came out of the linkage arm easily, making me have to reach under the sink to drain the water.
