Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellant tool for the job easy to use, provided the proper torque to remove drain...did not slip May 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It Broke This seemed like it should work, but it broke without moving the drain at all. It's going back. May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tub Drain Remover The tub drain remover is easy to use and did a great job replacing the drain stopper April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does its job well Drain remover did exactly as intended with ease. Perhaps my drain wasn't as tight as it needed to be to begin with, but I found I was able to loosen my drain with minimal effort once I purchased this tool. The reason my ease of installation and value marks were lower simply was because it would be much more convenient if they simply included a metal bar to stick in the hole and turn it rather then me having to get out my screwdriver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The remover worked The tub drain came out very easy with this tool. The drain was 39 years old. April 9, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work for us! This tool broke on the first try. One end is like an oversized Phillips head screw. You put it down in the drain where there is a crossbar, the Phillips head part is supposed to go on a bar (kind of like a slot screwdriver) and give it a tug to turn. Unfortunately one quarter of the tool part fell off. Then you put it back down on the slot in the drain hoping against all hope that it's going to work. Yep, another piece breaks off. Since one half of the four part top (Phillips screw) is missing, we just tossed it. It's hard to see this tool actually working. February 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Tool I was unable to remove the old stopper from the tub with this tool because all of the cross pieces inside the drain were bad but worked perfectly for putting in the new drain. December 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tub drain This tool works fine if your drain is somewhat tight. Anything more then that you will need a stronger tool. February 17, 2015
