Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SPK Garbage soft alloy couldn't even hold up to BRASS!
Couldn't find my 30+ year old trusty cartridge puller that I've used at least 30 times (same style, but MUCH better quality) ; so, I opted to invest in this new one. Don't waste your money. Yes, believe it or not, this was used correctly and the brass Moen cartridge ate away the inside of the two prongs with only firm two-handed twisting after puller screw and nut were tightened. Yes, it worked, but it will be lucky to last another 1 or 2 jobs. My old puller was black steel--like an impact socket, it weighed a lot more, and the large nut was very fine thread. Most of the time I could remove cartridges without even using a wrench with that old puller . Like most things manufactured and available for retail, this newer puller is a disposable item. Stay away from this lightweight, shiny alloy garbage!

The tool works ok, but it is very cheaply made and the way it extracts the cartridge is really cumbersome and causes a lot of strain and damage to the tool. Maybe there should be some way to inform the customer to lubricate the threads or sell the tool with some kind of friction easing compound already installed. Quite a lot of money for something as simple as that. Somebody got a corner on the market.

Worked better than expected. Use ratchet handle to loosen cartridge and the cartridge pulled out with no problem.

Well worth the extra money. Worked perfectly after breaking multiple cheaper extractors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PJ I bought this and Plumber used it and it broke.
I purchased this cartridge puller and it broke immediately while using it to attempt to extract a cartridge.
I hired a master plumber and he was the one who was using it when it broke.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Newtodiyplumbing The perfect tool.
I have extremely old plumbing fixtures. Both the plastic adapters that came with the cartridges broke. I bought a poor quality cartridge remover which also broke. As a last resort I bought the genuine Moen product & it worked like a charm. Well worth the cost.

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.
