Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cmnasti I bought the Zip-it Bath and Sink Hair Snare on the recommendation of my brother who is a professional plumber, when I asked what I should use to unclog a bathtub drain that's gotten a bit hairy. I ordered two of them online from HomeDepot.com, (one for the hall bath and one for the master) and chose the local store pick-up option. I highly recommend this whenever you are in a hurry. I picked them up the same day.
I had high hopes for the Zip-It. I unscrewed the stopper from the drain and inserted the Zip-It into the opening. Unfortunately, I could only get it to go as far as the third set of spines. The drain has a metal cross over the opening that the stopper screws into, which impeded access. The openings were just too small to accommodate the Zip-It.
The tool did snag some slimy hair from the the drain, but I could have done the same with my fingers and/or a tweezers--which is my usual modus operandi,. But, because doing it that way is gross, I wanted to find another way. Having said that, I did end up having to sacrifice my manicure to fallen follicles and soap scum just the same. Ew.
That's why I only gave the Zip-It 3-stars. I am sure it is a 5-star product IF you have an accommodating drain.

Way too short for my bathtub drain, was only getting hair at the bottom 1/4 of the snare and from the amount of hair there, I knew there must have been more that the snare couldn't reach. Also I had trouble pushing this down the drain because the grate was so small.

I had a really bad clog in my bathtub, and a time or two placing it down the drain I got the whole clog.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner 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.

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..........
