This retrofit device stops hair and other drain clogging items before they become problems in the pipes; if the drain rate slows or stops after a bath or shower, simply push the stopper closed which will shred the item causing the problem, and a normal drain rate resumes upon pulling open. For heavy blockage (e.g., bits of sponge that accidentally became part of my test), it may require an additional close/open cycle to fully clear the debris:
1) Easy installation - threads into place of old stopper and comes with 3 threaded mounting adapters
2) Solid, positive feel for opening/closing - seals tight
3) Large knob for easier grip during opening
4) No perceptible slowing of tub drain rate with debris free water
I would recommend this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA Hasn't clogged but doesn't get all the hair
Ive had this on my bathtub for a few months now. It was easy to install but takes a little adjusting so water can properly drain out. It comes with several threaded adapters to screw into any drain. When installed, there is about an 1/8" gap around it in the drain that some hair has snuck past. You can see the gap in my picture. It does catch most of the hair but some I still have to pull out of the drain.
To cut the hair it caught, you simply push down the top and you can feel it cut. The cut hairs were about 1 inch or so long. They wash off pretty easily by just using the shower.
The stopper isn't perfect but it is a better option than pushing an atrium drain cover over the drain that collects dirt and mildew.

DrainEasy No Clog Bathtub Stopper Retrofit in Chrome
This makes hairy situation hairless. Installation was easy. It took me less than three minutes. The system comes with many adapters so it fits a variety of tub drains. If anyone in your family has long hair then this is a must. It definitely collects the hair. And then when you’re done showering you just pump it up and down and it dices up the hair. Its important to pump it up and down every time otherwise after a few showers it is filled with hair and you have to clean it out. I’ve included some pictures. My house is older and the drain lines are getting old so keeping hair out of the lines is a big plus for me. I like this product.

None of the screws fit my drain. My drain was old...and looked it, so I went back to Home Depot and bought a new one made by Danco. It fit my drain like a glove, but none of the screws for the "universal" DrainEasy fit this one either. So much for universal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Good Buy Over Traditional Drain Plugs
Solid idea along with visual appeal. The plug works well as a normal one would and the finish is good enough quality to make it worth the purchase. The shredding capability it adds is just as handy as a person would expect. Some products offer multi-purpose at the cost of final appeal in looks or overall ease of use. It's a few extra bucks well spent. My only concern is longevity of function with amount of use. Be it multiple times daily, once daily, every other day and so on.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MadDog Not Quite Universal Retrofit-Measure First
Unfortunately, it was not possible to install the stopper in the tub drain as the tub drain was not included in the "replaces most standard" category, claimed by the product. The tapped opening in the "spider" was smaller than either of the two brass adapters provided, and the "webs" of the spider were too broad to permit the use of the "universal" adapter" provided. Check first that your tub drain "spider" is compatible with the included hardware to permit easy installation.
The stopper assembly is of all-plastic construction ("chrome" plated plastic on the top of the stopper), and, while the lower portion (with the hair cutting fingers) appears to be of substantial construction, the upper stopper proper feels very lightweight and could possibly be cracked by stepping on it.
If one has a compatible drain fitting and the intent is for a "quick fix" (maybe selling a house or vacating an apartment) this may be a viable option. For the long term other options should be pursued.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie easy to use
Installation wasn't bad it had multiple (3) different mounting adapters so one will probably fit. Its nice when people with long hair use my shower I no longer have a trap to clean out instead just push and pull the stopper a few times and not worry about getting the plunger or drano. I use it after every use and hve had no clogs since I've had it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey95 Did not fit my drain
Good concept, but I was unable to fit the stopper into my drain opening. I suspect my drain is narrower because the shower/tub has an acrylic insert or liner and the drain flange may need to be different to seal the liner. Product looked attractive, seemed well made, but I will never know if it was effective at catching hair and other gunk that causes a drain to close up.
