A good small drain snake with a nice method of using the hand grip to help push the snake forward through the drain.

This drain cleaning snake is very awkward to handle and would need two people. when you're in such a small space it's not possible.

Hard to control device and if snake hangs it feeds out unneeded cable.

Bad reviewers don't know how to use this thing
It is a bottom of the line home owner level unit. It does not automatically feed or retract by design. If you notice, that is what all the gripes are about. Watch a video or read the manual before using.

    Felt a little “clunky” at first to use and instructions weren’t very helpful but it did the job!

    Hello,

    I'm sorry to hear that the Kwik Spin+ is not advancing very quickly for you. To rapidly advance the cable you can do so manually. Just pull the cable out by hand until you reach the blockage and then engage the autofeed by squeezing the trigger and spinning the handle.

    Thanks for choosing Ridgid! Ridgid

    Do not buy
    Absolutely useless. Does not reel back in, no way to put pressure on the cable to go thru the blockage. Waste of money

      Rusted after the first use even after washing and drying it as best I could. It was extremely difficult to use, made a mess and didn't fix my problem.

      Hi Scooter,

      I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you are having with the Kwik Spin+. Drain cleaning can vary in degrees of difficulty and we have tried to design a product that is one fit for all. As far as rust on the cable goes, this will be unavoidable with cables made of steel that get exposed to water. It can be minimized with anti-rust measures, but in the end rust always wins.

      Thanks for choosing Ridgid! Ridgid

      This is not worth money. Maybe for really simple jobs. A powered unit is required to be able to navigate elbows.

      Hello Gene,

      The Kwik-Spin is designed to be used for clearing tub and sink lines up to 1.5" in diameter. There can be limitations to this depending on the location of the clog and size of the line. For typical jobs that include navigating p traps and clearing drain lines this tool is ideal. When you reach an elbow sometimes it may help turning the snake slowly in reverse to help it get around.

      Thanks,
      Team Ridgid Ridgid

      Save YO money!
      I am a female and could not get anything to retract. It never rolled up and the gripper is made for a gorilla. good in theory only. Don’t buy.

      Hello, We're sorry to hear about your negative experience with our product. You may want to try our PowerClear™ Drain Cleaning Machine. This unit has an easier to use auto feed system and is motor powered! Thanks,

        This tool will not wind back up using the handle. Do not purchase.

          So flimsy it wasn’t able to push the clog. Turning the handle didn’t advance the tool either

          Junk. The autofeed did not work. I don’t recommend this.

          Did the Job
          We had a pretty bad clog in the shower drain. Got it cleared out in about 20 minutes once I got the technique down. I did have an issue with the cable uncoiling. It took longer to get it back in the drum than it did to unclog the drain.
