Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Danco Puller was only product on the shelf
This product was poorly design without any bench testing on moen brass and cartridges.. Meon makes shower cartridges with plastic tabs that extends to the width of the brass body making it impossible to press the cartridge body beyond the faucet body as well as having a plastic keyway(no twisting or turning as suggested on utube). Home Depot would like you to think this tool by Danco is all you need however you can't press the cartridge pass the body lip. Product also had no instructions and no other parts with the product and indicate by the package and Danco had nonething online links. Danco could redesign the puller with two slots in the outside body that allow the tabs to slip thru the lip of the tool making the experience of pulling moen cartridges easier- -meon pullers are design the same and look alike.

After spending an hour trying to remove a bathtub/shower cartridge that had sat in place for 20+years with conventional tools, I found this tool on Home Depot's website. Although I probably won't be using it for another 20 years (it's all metal, unlike the plastic-laden cartridge that needed replacing), it saved me extra hours of aggravation and a possible $200 plumbers bill!
Now if Moen could make an adapter so that we could use the same tool to pull the cartridge from our bathroom faucets . . . .

If you have a Moen Cartridge system for your faucets or showers, I highly recommend this tool. I finally had to replace the one in my shower that was leaking after 20+ years of use. I tried to pull it out as a lot of online help said to do, but it was stuck in here pretty good. This tool helped me pull it out within 5 minutes. My level skill of plumbing is pretty basic (have only replaced the kitchen sink faucet prior to this). Now my shower works even better (smooth in turning) and no more leak!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MEG1 Good, useful tool, bought it somewhere else...
Great tool, I used it to replace my completely frozen Moen shower cartridge. Didn't buy it from Home Depot though. None of the HD stores in town had them in stock, so the only option was to buy it online for $25.48. Lowes had the same tool in stock and the price was $12.97! So, the choice was obvious. Put 2 stars for quality since the tool bended a bit after a struggle with my cartridge. Still should be able to use it in a future.

The cartridge was really stuck. Youtube videos shows plumbers pulling the cartridge apart and using a tap to remove the core. If you are not careful the process could cause damage to the mounting area behind the wall. This tool is well built and efficient. It creates leverage against the cartridge housing eliminating the stress pulling causes. If you are the original owner of the house, Moen replaces the cartridges for free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FixAnything Moen cartridge removal tool
The tool was not the least expensive available. However it appears to be well made. It appears that the most critical center piece is machined out of steel vs cast or plastic of other tools. That is based upon the fine tooling/machining marks in the steel. I am not sure how the outer piece was made. It should be less critical. The tool is chrome plated so there should be no problems with it rusting. I have not used the tool yet. As a landlord I am sure that I will have use for it either in one of my rental units or in my home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7916 The tool works as advertised
I was a little concerned about getting a quality tool that didn't mess up the shower valve body after doing some online research. Cheaper versions of this tool caused some users heartburn and necessitated hiring a plumber to remove the whole fixture -- I didn't need that. This is a tool that is up to the job. If you are changing one of the shower valves/cartridges listed in the product features this will do the job for you. One of the two that I swapped out was an original from 1976. The other had been replaced more recently. The tool made short work of both.

Well made and easy to use. Slid my cartridge right out. Tried to remove with plyers with no luck. Yanking on the cartridge could pull the valve assembly loose from its mount or loosen fittings. Then your DIYS project just became a nightmare. Use this tool!!
