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.

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.

I purchased this tool to extract a stuck shower valve cartridge. Although costly, it did help remove the cartridge with effort. In reasoning the cost, I felt that with three identical shower valves in the house it would be worth the investment.

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.

This tool is a necessity if replacing a positemp valve. The old valves tend to get stuck in the housing making them very hard to remove.

Cartridge puller performed as advertised with no complications. Half the price of retail. Totally worth the time saved being able to directly pull the cartridge without damaging the rest of the plumbing.
