The installation instructions found on the Home Depot website for the Drop Ell show how the usual or standard installation should be done. If installed that way, removing the Drop Ell should only involve unthreading it from a piece of 1/2" pipe sticking out of the wall. You can use a large Philips screwdriver inserted into the water outlet on the ell as a tool to unthread it. Again if it is a standard installation, the 1/2" pipe can then be unthreaded from the shower elbow inside the wall.

Hello Rich and thank you for your interest in Moen products. The Moen Circular Drop Ell in Brushed Nickel was designed to be installed with a Moen hand held hose and showerhead. If you are attempting to winterize the valve, we would recommend removing the cartridge, and blowing out any residual water with an air compressor. Water trapped in the plug could potentially freeze and cause a leak. If you have additional pre-purchase questions, please feel free to call 800-289-6636. Our business hours are 8:00 am - 7:00 pm Monday through Friday EST.
It been a few years since I installed this. You definitely have to get it tight enough so it does not leak. After hand tightening, I used a large Philips screwdriver that fit in the Ell's outlet to do the final tightening. Just use caution as you don't want to crack or snap the fitting. For me getting the nipple length protrusion right to get the Ell tight to the wall is the challenge.

The earlier response said "It cannot be shipped to your local store for pick-up either." Currently (June 2015) the web page is offering it to me for free pickup in my local store. They added one extra day more to the estimate than having it shipped to my home.
