I have used this tool to remove three tub drains; so far it works well for me. It is made of aluminum so it is light weight and never corrodes; but is also a soft metal. I recently updated the drain in one of our bath rooms that our daughter used for several years. I was amazed that when I pulled the drain out a "rope" of hair about 18" long came out of the drain pipe! (see photos) That alone made the tool worth the price for me.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plaat Disappointed this wrench proved to be useless
This tool proved to be useless to me as it only seemed to further complicate matters by breaking the drain, causing me more problems.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 8Man Should not be made of aluminum
The drain I was trying to remove has been in place for 50 years. It is going to be tough drain to remove. Inserted the tool and one of the four teeth of the tool broke on the first attempt. The tool may be okay for a newly installed drain, but is not built to tackle a tough drain. It needs to be made of steel, not aluminum.

Sturdy enough for home use. Met all my needs. Not sure it would hold up to daily use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Great tool to have....
Tool fits both size drains, shank is shaped to fit wrenches and hole for bar. Its great and doesn't mar the drain at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ted the one i purchased then returned, teeth broke as soon as i put a little torque on it.
as soon as I put a little torque to loosen drain, 2 of the products teeth cracked right off.
I am not an engineer but imagine this item should be tempered steel and not particle board, well not exactly particle board by the like in metal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MO Best tool I have ever purchased.
Very simple and straightforward.
No tricky dance moves.
One area that could be improved is the widening of the holes so that you can put a longer or bigger object into it to turn.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AZvet Tub drain remover broke
I purchased this after my plumber broke two of them attempting to remove my tub drain. He never returned. I purchased in an attempt to modify to work with my impact gun. The planned modifications to adapt to mount on impact gun didn't work out. So I decided to modify a large socket and put on my impact wrench to 'persuade' it loose. I set the pressure low and carefully ran forward then reverse several times until it broke loose. This socket cost me less and didn't break since it was solid chrome material.
The Home Depot tool was made of cast metal and has no strength, which is why the plumber broke two of them. I thought gentle impact persuasion would work instead of brute strength with heavy rod and hammer. I'm glad I returned it and made a tool with some common sense, many times stronger and more professional.
I don't recommend this product.
