Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by fin780 Locking mechanism disqualifies
This tool looks durable, but the trigger locking mechanism is impossible to engage. If the locking mechanism worked, this would be a good tool. As it is, it is impossible to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ajhvac Good for shower drains
Purchased one of these for my shower drain that was running slow. Worked perfectly and was surprised how much hair was actually in there. Locking pin on trigger is a bit finicky but otherwise the tool works great and feels very durable like every other ridgid tool I own.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ambersjax Easy to use and performs well
Mt husband is a plumber and keeps the kwik spin hand spinner with auto feed on him while working and I have used at the house. Its helped clear tough clogs fast and was very simple to use. I highly recommend this product especially if your a plumber.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Isrchu Easy way to clean clogged drains
I used this on my shower drain that became slow. I had tried the liquid drain cleaner, but since this is an old house and I don't know what the previous owners might have put down the drain, I was reluctant to use lye. I chose this RidGid auto feed hand spinner because it looked like the easiest to use. I have to agree with the previous reviews that there seems to be an issue with the locking pin. After some struggle I was able to engage the pin. Unfortunately, after a few seconds of use the pin became disengaged ( I was resting the unit on the shower drain, which put pressure on the trigger). After fiddling with it some more, and holding the unit up off the drain while I turned the crank it worked perfectly. Drain is clear, unit worked well, and I didn't have to pay a plumber $100

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xebeck Better than chemicals
I found the Kwik-Spin very useful and reliable, it does what it promises, except that it could be tiring once the cable fed is too deep inside the pipes. Must have good strength, and expect 1 or 2 hours to extract blockage out of your pipes; also depends on your particular case. Good for the money, and better than calling the plumber.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anon Cable auto lock defective
Purchased today at HD. Auto lock completely defective. Must use quite a bit of strength one handed to continuously to lock cable while using other hand to crank. Excellent for causing carpal tunnel. Returned item to HD. Remaining single unit for sale also similarly defective.
Problem appears to be plastic locking pin is too small by fraction of inch or plastic notch is too big. It's either poor design or quality control. Otherwise unit appears to be good design and cable is high quality to resist kinking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NotAPlumber Saved myself a service call and lots of money!!!!!
I had a slow draining tub and bathroom sink and this tool did the trick.
I had tried the hotwater and baking soda trick and other supposedly environmentally safe products but non did the trick. Because we are on a septic, I didn't want to use any of the harsher drain clog products so I decided to use this.
Boy was I surprised at how easy it was to use and clean up afterwards. I'd read reviews where other users had to look up how to use this on youtube but the directions on mine were pretty simple. It also looks nothing like the picture above. They are now grey in color but still the same old dependable Rigid product.
I pulled out some nasty globs of dog hair from my tub (previous owners) and cleaned out our bathroom sink with ease. I had so much fun using this that I decided to do the ensuite shower also.
