It’s good quality but design needs improvement, it starts feeling heavy and uncomfortable after a few minutes of use: therefore, frequent stops are required to complete the job.

1st attempt at using --coil doesn't wind back into retainer , coil didn't clear clog, made a mess, to NOVICE DIY'r CONSIDER Powered Auger and/or technique first --- would not recommend this if you want something straightforward that works first time
A) didn't work B) didn't rewind C) flopped around in the baththub, light splashy mess generally failed across the board auto handle is awkward this product basically just sucks lol would recommend learning how to auger first, before trying this, and or also a power auger to prevent handle failure to rewind/minimize tubing flopping around in the tub (i pushed it back into the container by hand) first impression: observably useless equipment

    It "sort-of" works. Turn the crank and it slowly extends the cable. The unit is only adequate for really minor clogs.

    I used this to clear a bathtub clog and it worked well. Quick warning that the mechanism that controls the coil feed is a manual trigger that you need engage by constantly squeezing while rotating the drum. There's no auto lock for that. Your upper body may be burning if you're snaking down a long way. Also, for snaking around a trap, let the drum do the work and feed the coil through using trigger and drum - do not hold the coil with your hand to feed it through (doesn't work).

      It is able to reach further in to the drain and still be tough enough to clear the clog.

      Works for short distances. I would say 15 to 20 feet. The longer the clog is from the drain you lose power using a manual auger. At that point you probably need a roto router that attaches to your high power drill or the gas powered type. Crank and trigger release doesn't work too well. Better to feed and retract manually.

      Trigger doesn't clamp down hard enough and it keeps slipping. Worthless tool

      Front stop trigger made holding auger awkward. Returned tool, not easy to use

      Do Not Buy
      Broke before completing first use. The coil got stuck and wouldn’t uncoil or recoil. Piece of junk.

        I own 10 apartments and use this auger constantly even on the main sewer line it worked great and pulled up a huge bucket of hair toilet paper and rags and unclogged a severe obstruction saving me many hundreds of dollars.

          It's not very "easy" to use. The cranking is complicated to push and retrieve.

          It is very difficult to crank back in and it takes a lot of work to retract it.

          Worked great. Within minutes the drain was cleared. Worth the cost.
