Answer: 
I have reused this tool many times. You may have to spend a few minutes removing some of the hairs from it though. I usually put some bleach and hot water to disinfect after every use. You can probably get 4-8 uses out of it before it's time to buy a new one.

Answer: 
I had this idea too when I first used this tool. But, to be honest, they are so effective and come out of your pipes so covered in horrid gunk (gunk previously clogging everything) that you won't even want to. They are so cheap. Just use a new one each time.

Answer: 
Hi Barb-- You will get better access to the clog if you can remove the stopper from the sink. The Zip-It is made of hard plastic, and while it has some flexibility, I think you would have a tough time trying to snake it under the stopper and down the drain. So, if you can remove the stopper, you will have the best result--and least frustration. Hope this helps.

Thank you Barb for your question. You do not have to remove your stopper linkage to use this tool. This tool will slide around it. You may have to jiggle the handle of the tool side-to-side if the barbs get caught on the way out. Several insertions may be necessary to fully clear your drain.

Answer: 
The best and easiest way is if you have access to the pipes under the sink.
you will need one or possibly two pairs of rather large channel lock pliers that can open up enough to turn the locking nuts on the P=Trap assembly then take it apart with a container underneath to catch the contents of that trap and release a your plastic tool as needed. then reassemble the P-Trap .... Of course while in there

Answer: 
Hi Mell - RednexToyz is correct. A little twisting or side-to-side jiggle usually does the trick. The same barbs that work to dislodge the hair and debris from the drain can also grab the linkage or branch within the drain. Please let us know if you have any additional questions regarding the product. Feel free to contact one of our Product Experts toll-free at 800-835-2200.

Twist it from side to side & gently push in & out a little. I find that the teeth get hooked on the underside of the sink drain & can be a little tough to get out at times.

Zip-It Bath and Sink Hair Snare is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zip it, Vinegar & Banking Soda (if still sluggish) I wanted to add, after we used Zip It in the kitchen sink it was still a little sluggish, so we did a banking soda and vinegar (sizzle bomb, then rinsed it down with hot water, waiting a few minutes) and then did the Zip It trick again, and now the drain is working 100%. So, if you don't have perfect results, it might take 2 approaches to get the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works well I found this by doing a search on the website for something that would easily remove hair from a shower drain. I did not have a stoppage but I could tell the drain was slowing down. It is a little difficult to get down the shower drain but once it does get past the corner, it went in most of the way (to the T). When I pulled it up, it caught most of the hair along with some other nasty stuff. There was still a little hair right at the top of the drain that was caught after a second use. Now my drain works like new. This product was even in good enough shape that I was able to get the sink as well as the shower in the second bathroom. Overall, I am impressed with this product. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do for a very reasonable price. The only drawback is that the burrs break off during use which means it’s good for a couple of uses at most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best little gadget The Zip it works every time, quick and easy and safe. For just a couple of dollars, you can save a ton on plumbers bills. I use it regularly in every bathroom. The drains now run fast and it helps keep the sink clean longer with no standing water creating a soap scum in the sink.......I highly recommend it. I got mine at Home Depot for less than $3..........

This little plastic tool is a lifesaver, and has kept me from having to call the plumber countless times. I've used it successfully on both sinks and shower drains. I had the same one for about 3 years, and finally retired it when I pulled a horrid glob of hair and soap scum out of the shower drain - for just a few bucks to replace the tool, some messes aren't worth cleaning up! I'll be swinging by HD to buy a new one ASAP, as it's always good to be able to deal with a clog immediately instead of taking a dedicated trip to buy one of these. So far I haven't encountered a single clog that this couldn't reach. The last one with the shower was juuuust at the edge of its reach though, but it still got it. I just had to try "fishing" for it a few times. If you do reuse this, the best way to clean it off is to take it outside and turn it upside down with the handle at the bottom. Then gently hose it off with a garden hose until it's clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great product! I am completely useless with anything mechanical and know nothing about plumbing. I had a clogged bathroom sink, and thought I would try this, based on the reviews, before calling a plumber. It was so easy to use, and worked like a charm. It's hard to believe something so cheap can work so well. It's a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and Simple tool! - I call it THE GRUDGE remover Remember the movie the Grudge? that is how the hairs coming out of the bathtub look like. This tool is great. Such a simple design yet so efficient. Do not waste your time buying chemical products to unclog your bathtub if hair is your issue. Save some money and the environment. Use this tool. The tool can be reusable. I usually put it through hot water and bleach after using it. I can usually get somewhere between 5-7 uses out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats the cost of a Plumber, and it works! My vinegar and baking soda trick just wasn't lasting, so I looked for a manual solution, and found Zip-It. At first, I thought my bathroom sink had a toothpaste clog, but it turned out to be hair. I don't even use this bathroom to do my hair, but hair falls out all over the house. It really cleaned out the drain. The Kitchen drain needs one more application and it will be perfect, but what a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone Needs One Slow bathroom sink drain fixed in 10 minutes or less (including clean up) with no tools other than a Zip-It. I used it to fix my girlfriends drain and parents drain. No need to remove stopper. 1. Open drain stopper all the way. 2. Turn on the water. 3. Insert the Zip-It. 4. Remove the Zip-It. 5. Close the stopper and fill the sink, cleaning the Zip-It while filling the sink. 6. Drain the sink to flush the drain. The only "trick" is the be patient while removing the Zip-It as the barbs will catch on and edges inside the drain. Just wiggle it while removing it - you do not need to muscle out, just wiggle it out.
