Can we use any other substitute or trick to open the cartridge other than this tool

Asked by: SK03
I would say no, unless you can design your own invention.

Right tool for a tub faucet?

You stated elsewhere that this tool is for a 2-handle lavatory sink faucet. Is it also the right tool for a 2-handle wide separated (8") faucet for a roman tub? My tub is about 20 years old and the cartridge seals are finally leaking.
Asked by: PhoSho
Yes, this is the right one for 2 handle tub faucets also.

Any suggested homegrown workarounds for this "tool"? What concerns me about it is (1) open seam (not welded) which induces flex, (2) no pass-thru hole in the sides to insert a screwdriver or bar to assist in turning the tool (Vice Grips or water pumps might distort the tool), and (3) the fact that the tool is metal and the retainer nut is nylon, which is not a good combination if the nut is fused due to mineral deposits. Rounding off or shearing that fine-thread nut would be disastrous for removal of below-deck Moen 1248 Roman tub cartridges where the fiberglass tub has no access panel (my situation), requiring removal of the entire tub to gain access to the valve body to complete the job. A hardened plastic tool would have made more sense (Moen sells those for other applications) -- perhaps some type of homegrown tool can be fabricated from PVC/sprinkler piping of appropriate diameter so that it sits similarly into the recesses of the retainer nut, yet is less likely to round-off/shear the nut due to plastic-tool-on-plastic-nut rather than metal tool vs. plastic nut, especially if the original builder/installer over-tightened the retainer nut (my house is 17 years old and has the original Moen valves with original cartridges (now leaking) and original retainer nuts).

Needle nosed pliers might work.

Customer Reviews

Cartridge Retainer Removal Tool for 2-Handle Faucet is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design This tool could be designed better in order to make it easier to use. It should have a "T" handle or a hex nut shape on top. Also, it can dig into the plastic retaining nut you are trying to remove preventing it from being turned any further. Unfortunately this is the only tool that is available for this specific retaining nut on my faucet.

The tool probably would have worked fine if the part to be removed hadn't been made of plastic and wasn't locked in solidly by corrosion. The tool ended up breaking the plastic part that it was supposed to grab and turn because the corrosion made the part impossible to move. I blame the problem on the plastic retainer, not the tool.

I reccomended yes but beware that it's goal is to turn/screw a Teflon piece with receiving teeth. The teeth are eroded easily by the tool and failed after a few turns. I used a chisel to break it at the risk of the faucet screwing path. But it worked and I did not affect the metal of the faucet.

So I still have not been able to extract the cartridge. Next step will probably be to remove the entire faucet assembly and see if I can somehow turn the retainer.

The item was below the Filter I ordered, as other items bought by persons ordering the filter, so I believed that it was a replacement filter element. IT WAS NOT!
