The directions claim that this fits for Moen 1200 1222 and 1225. I just used it to pull a 1222. It didn't fit exact the way I felt it should. There are these tabs that are supposed to fit into grooves and they weren't milled wide enough. HOWEVER, despite this fact.

The directions claim that this fits for Moen 1200 1222 and 1225. I just used it to pull a 1222. It didn't fit exact the way I felt it should. There are these tabs that are supposed to fit into grooves and they weren't milled wide enough. HOWEVER, despite this fact. I was able to secure the puller by tightening the end screw down and then rotating the big nut clockwise. Slowly the rotation of the big nut pulled the cartridge loose about 1/3rd of the way. I was able to then pull it the rest of the way out. So for $12 it got the job done. Moen's puller costs much more. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes. Moen hasn't changed the basic design of the cartridge in all that time. For a while, they made them out of heavy duty nylon, but they've gone back to brass. Over time, the rubber O-rings ultimately deteriorate, and if one breaks, it can jamb the cartridge in the unit.
I recommend using plumber's grease on the inside of the place where it installs. It moves much easier.

Thank you for choosing Danco products. To use this, first back up the nut on the tool towards the handle as far as it will go. Next, remove the screw from the tool. Place the tool over the Moen cartridge, aligning it so that the ears on the bottom of the tool fit correctly over the stem. Tighten the screw back into the tool, catching the stem of the cartridge. With a wrench, begin tightening the nut on the tool against the faucet body until the cartridge pops loose. Use the tool to pull the cartridge out, then very thoroughly clean the faucet body, removing the mineral buildup that was holding the cartridge in place. Failure to properly clean the body can damage the new stem on its way in, resulting in premature leaks.
We also have detailed instructions on our website www.danco.com in the How To Center. Just enter in the Model # on the Installations Instructions page and the PDF file will load. Read Less

now you can start turning the bottom sleeve (large bolt) clockwise so that it starts to push on the pipe and pulls out the cartridge. It will be tight at first due to how long it was in service but in my opinion, the ONLY way to go.

You really shouldn't be doing this if you don't know how....
But, remove all valve housing to where only stem is showing and remove clip.
Put puller on and seed the end to the outer contour of shaft.
Screw down the screw to valve stem (as far as can be)
Now, start turning puller handle and you will feel tension and valve should free up and pop out.

This is not always the case and I had to take the tension way beyond the norm and got it... but I know what I am doing and if your valve is really stuck like the one I dealt with be very careful. And......

The model number is usually on the underside of the faucet where the water comes out.
Alternately, Moen has decades of product pictures on their site that help you figure out what you have.

Thank you for your inquiry. Depending on the style of faucet (kitchen, lav, bath), there may be a number stamped on the back of the faucet. Moen also has a feature on their website that can help you identify which faucet you may have.

(personal experience) With plumbing parts, I've found that by shutting the water off, pulling the cartridge/needed parts and bringing it into Home Depot for comparison has been my safest bet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 115 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ineffective I was forced to use this tool in a pinch because they don't stick the actual Moen tool or any better tool in the store. The teeth didn't grip well enough and the balance ended up breaking into pieces which required an hour long battle to remove it using needle nose pliers and some ingenuity... the better tool! If you have the time finf and buy the Moen tool and not the cheap knock off. August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not effective The tool did not work. It also was made from cheap metal and it was poorly finished. My hands were cut from the threads on the tool. The tool broke when I used it. I would not recommend this tool. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very useful tool This tool made the replacement of the water control valve an easy task. August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Needed tool! Do not try and remove a moen cartridge without this one thing that is great about Home Depot Employees they always let you know what tools you will need! August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Required tool I had to remove a 12 year old Moen posi-temp shower valve. As you can imagine it was stuck. I tried to remove the valve cartridge with my channel-lock pliers with no luck. This cartridge puller easily loosened the cartridge and allowed me to pull it out with the "T" handle. This much better than breaking the piping and valve housing inside the wall. Warning: read and understand the instructions before you attempt this!! August 16, 2016
