Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by catalyst626 Life saver! Old cartridge was not giving up without a fight...
Old cartridge was not giving up a without a fight. The removal tool that came with the new cartridge would probably work great in a <1yr old setup, but not if the cartridge has been in service for several years. Grab this tool from the same aisle as the cartridge and you will curse less during install.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by billapex Hard to rate, since the cartridge broke
I can't really rate this product good or bad, hence the Average rating. I installed it per the instructions, and it pulled/ripped the brass part off the cartridge, rendering the tool useless for the job. Thus, I had to hire a plumber to drill out the cartridge. You may have better luck than I did.

The price was perfect and the task which this particular tool was needed alleviated much time and frustration; resulting in a very satisfied customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blue11 This thing just WORKS!
If the cartridge you're pulling is older than 5 years, the little white plastic 'removal helper' that comes with the new replacement will split the first time you try to use it. It's flimsy and basically worthless.
I had to pull a 35 year old sticky Moen cartridge from a sink faucet, and this thing got it loose and ready to pull in seconds with no problem.
BE SURE TO READ AND FOLLOW THE INCLUDED INSTRUCTIONS!
I did spray some WD-40 around the edge of the old cartridge and then GENTLY tapped the assembly to try to loosen it, and that may have helped this tool.
In any case, well worth the money. If you try to use pliers and/or excessive force and the old cartridge breaks off inside the faucet, you're looking at a new faucet for a lot of money. This does a great job without that worry. Just buy it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Caria There's a Better One
This one didn't work. Pulled the stem out without the cartridge. Recommend Pasco 7040 Stem and Cartridge Puller instead: Two tools in one, has an end to pull out a stuck/broken cartridge. My plumber didn't know about it, saved the cost of tearing out a wall.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by J1goalie Better than pliers!
This puller did come in handy for removing Moen type faucet cartridges. Once installed you can remove your old cartridges with a little less effort than using a pair of pliers. The material quality is not as sturdy as I would like and the instructions are not very easy to understand. After taking a little time to figure out how to attach this tool it did get the job.
