Questions & Answers

Can this tool be reused? Is it possible to clean it off?

Asked by: Cosmo
You can but do so at your own risk. I didn't realize they were supposed to be one time use only. I used mine for several years until it broke of in the drain. Now I have to remove the drain flange and hope I can get it out.

do you have to remove the stopper from your bathroom sink to use

Asked by: Barb
Not required, but the Zip It tool will last longer (as I just finished 500 hotel drains) if you remove it. The teeth can break or bend back

My tub was reglazed in 2010. I removed the screw on the drain cover and the drain cover is still sticking to the tub. I am afraid that if I stick something in one of the holes of the drain cover and try to pull it off, it will rip up and bring up the coating. Can this device be inserted in the diverter if I take that off and if so, would it reach are enough do you think?
Asked by: dee
You could put this in the diverter but I don't think it's long enough to reach down to where your problem would be (generally the trap).

Maybe it's human nature, or maybe it's just me being lazy, I simply ignored all the hair that washed down the drain over the years... and it finally clogged. Since the bathroom stopper couldn't be unscrewed (or at least I couldn't unscrew it as a layman), I didn't feel comfortable pouring Drano all over my bathtub. I then tried baking powder and vinegar, which in retrospect didn't even make sense I mean how could a simple acid-base reaction unclog a hair plug? Finally, I tried this product. It was exactly as described. I had to wiggle it a bit to push it down the drain, and for a while I thought the snake was stuck, but it was pretty sturdy and didn't break. And, finally, out came la pièce de résistance that was a hair plug the size of a small cat coated with black gunk. I had never thought I'd be ecstatic to see something so nasty, but indeed. 5 minutes of work and my bathtub was draining normally again. Thank you, Zip It!

This little plastic tool is a lifesaver, and has kept me from having to call the plumber countless times. I've used it successfully on both sinks and shower drains. I had the same one for about 3 years, and finally retired it when I pulled a horrid glob of hair and soap scum out of the shower drain - for just a few bucks to replace the tool, some messes aren't worth cleaning up! I'll be swinging by HD to buy a new one ASAP, as it's always good to be able to deal with a clog immediately instead of taking a dedicated trip to buy one of these. So far I haven't encountered a single clog that this couldn't reach. The last one with the shower was juuuust at the edge of its reach though, but it still got it. I just had to try "fishing" for it a few times. If you do reuse this, the best way to clean it off is to take it outside and turn it upside down with the handle at the bottom. Then gently hose it off with a garden hose until it's clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Quick, Easy, Effective and Absurdly Inexpensive This is really a great product. Anyone with a slow drain would be crazy to NOT try this first. Chances are, it will do the trick and it is a lot easier than removing the trap from under the sink. It is very, very effective and very easy to use. Here are a couple of tips from my experience. First, wear goggles or glasses, because nasty stuff splatters out of the drain. Second, wear gloves, because nasty stuff splatters out of the drain. Third, have a garbage bag handy to catch all the nasty stuff that splatters out of the sink. You will likely make multiple forays into the drain and you'll will be amazed and disgusted by how much gunk you'll pull out. Having the trash bag handy makes going back for more a lot easier. Fourth, have a pair of long-nose pliers handy to pull out the chunks of gunk loosed by this tool. Lastly, as others have recommended, the tool does seemingly get stuck from time to time. Yanking hard doesn't really help. Just wiggle and jiggle and it will eventually come loose. I've never written a review before, but this tool did such an excellent job, and was so fast, easy and absurdly inexpensive, I felt compelled to pass along my experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple tool with phenomenal results. We have 3 women with long hair in the household. So, we always have slow drain in the sinks, tub & shower. I use Drano & other chemicals, and a plunger with mixed results. We had a plumber in the house for a different job and we talked about slow sinks. He went to his truck and brought one of these. He put this tool in the bathroom sink which was slow, and pulled out so much hair, gunk, few pieces of floss. It was nasty! (Wear gloves and have trash bags nearby). Did that a few times till nothing came out. That sink drained so fast. I then bought a few of these and impressed the heck out of my wife & daughters (grossed them out at first), by cleaning their sinks, tubs, and the shower. This is so good I bought a few more as a small gift for our extended family and everyone is happy with their sinks & showers now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Brilliant & Works amazingly! I have thick, long, waist length hair, 2 cats & a very hairy husband! :) Needless to say (even with our drain cover/hair catcher)we have drain problems. Last night after pouring an entire bottle of drain cleaner in our bathtub before heading to bed...we wake up to find the drain STILL fully clogged. In an act of sheer desperation I headed to Home Depot this morning to get a more "powerful" drain cleaner. While I was there I noticed this amazing little gadget hanging next to the drain cleaner, so I bought it! All I can say is thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! It tore right thru the clog, pulled out enough hair to knit a sweater, oh my! It is easy to use, no drain cleaner needed. This little tool is the best value ever at $2.48! All I can say is ZIP-IT...Where have you been all my life? Thank you again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly For our tub, this product worked great. I read some of the negative reviews, and most have valid points about possible pitfalls. In my case, I stuck it in, felt it hit the hair, and pulled back immediately. The hair came easily but then got stuck in the drain opening, so instead of trying to push this product back in the hole to snag it out, I used a paper towel and grabbed the hair. I had to pull pretty hard to get it through the little 1/4 pie shaped piece formed by the tub drain. Once it was out, I stuck the tool in again and pulled more out. After repeating this technique a few times, the tool flowed free in and out of the drain. I could see it possibly breaking off if you try to pull a tough clump out. Instead, get a little bit of the hair out, grab with a paper towel and yank. Otherwise, you might break off the barbed part in the drain. Yes, it is kinda tricky to insert it the first time but take your time to navigate bends. I have a long 50 ft metal snake and that is hard to push in too, so that issue is not unique to this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone Needs One Slow bathroom sink drain fixed in 10 minutes or less (including clean up) with no tools other than a Zip-It. I used it to fix my girlfriends drain and parents drain. No need to remove stopper. 1. Open drain stopper all the way. 2. Turn on the water. 3. Insert the Zip-It. 4. Remove the Zip-It. 5. Close the stopper and fill the sink, cleaning the Zip-It while filling the sink. 6. Drain the sink to flush the drain. The only "trick" is the be patient while removing the Zip-It as the barbs will catch on and edges inside the drain. Just wiggle it while removing it - you do not need to muscle out, just wiggle it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zip-it...It worked! Big time! This product is simple and easy to use and it is really quite clever. I did not even know such a product existed I used it on a rather sluggish shower drain that I had tried unplugging a couple of times using baking soda and vinegar, plus a snake. With the Zip-it I was able to pull out a staggering amount of hair from the shower drain. Gee, no wonder the water was draining slowly. This product worked well and I did not have to use any harsh chemicals, which I did not want to do. When using it I suggest wearing gloves and maybe eye glasses as well so nothing can splash in your eyes.
