Make your own. Worst case scenario.
If you have a piece of 3/4 copper you can make your own. Use a copper cutter to notch the copper on 2 sides and cut it to size with some sheet metal snips.

    faucet cartridge removal tool - good features-worked
    The cartridge removal tool worked fine. The repair was complicated by first installing the wrong cartridge but when I figured this out, got the right cartridge, I was able to complete the repair without problem.

    Could not have fixed the faucet without this tool.
    After reading a couple other reviews, I had my doubts about this faucet cartridge removal tool. It worked quite easily and quickly. I would not have been able to change the cartridge without this tool. The real question is why I need a special tool to fix a leaky faucet, but that's a manufacturer problem, not a Home Depot problem. The tool worked as advertised, though it did take a little more than a week to have it shipped to my local store.

        Changing a Mown faucet cartridge without this tool would be very difficult. Universal removal tool did not work. Cartridge came out easily with the right tool.

            Home Depot should have removal cartridge tool in store, since the cartridge are available in store, but not the tool to install the moen cartridge.
