A: Hello Rich, This is a 4 claw tool and can pick-up small items as well as help clear clogs in sink, tub or shower drain by either catching and pulling hair/debris out or by acting as an auger to push and break the debris. However, just like any tool, this works best when used within its designed operating range. The tool is made from flexible spring steel however the front end of the tool (where the claws reside) is approx. 3/8" dia x 3" long so may not bend on sharp turn. Also, the claws are not designed to catch paper or very thin objects. You can read the reviews of several very satisfied customer who have been able to use it successfully to clear clogs but then there are a few who were unable to possibly due to use in application that was beyond the design range of the tool. For this tool to go through sink drain or tub drain, you will need to take out the pop-up stopper/tub stopper so the head can get inserted into the drain pipe. Hope this helps - Please contact us at email@example.com if you need additional information or have questions. Thanks.
A: Based on my experience with it in other situations, I wouldn't expect it to. Bathtub drains are most commonly clogged from layers of long hair, that often take some effort to pull out. The grip on these isn't strong enough to do that in most cases I'd say. I would go with Home Depot's $1.47 plastic hair snake instead, or something similar.
A: Handle is made from Robust ABS and is ergonomically designed. Thanks.
A: The claws open about 5/8". Not sure if it can grab a water bottle cap while it is still installed - depends upon the cap diameter and structure.
A: It's pretty narrow. I would estimate around 3 or 4 mm.
A: Shaft is 0.25" and Claw End is about 0.5" in diameter
