The Universal Trim Kit for Tub an excellent replacement for most tubs drain and overflow.
The drain plug is well design, well built, has a beautiful chrome finish and a tight seal.
In the other hand, the construction of overflow plate, has some sharp corners and some rough edges.
I do recommend this product, regardless, these minor roughness can be easily removed with a fine file or emery cloth.
This drain was probably the easiest drain we’ve ever installed. Most drains require that you use needle nose or some other type of plier, inserted into the drain, to either install or remove it. Somebody actually thought this through and provided a place where you can use a common screwdriver to install/remove the drain. Much easier than trying to screw or unscrew using pliers.
The drain works well; easier to open and close with a single toe tap. Even still, it open and shuts much easier than our previous drain. It looks very nice and all components are metal. The only negative, the reason it gets 4 instead of 5 stars, is because the two cut-outs on the overflow trim are ragged with sharp areas. Since most folks don’t typically put their fingers inside the cut-outs I’m not too concerned however, it does speak to the quality of the item.
Easy to Install, No Leaks, Reliable, easy to engage & disengage, all metal
overflow has jagged cuts
I replaced an 'oil rubbed, bronze' drain that had begun to flake off after a year and with only sporadic use.
This drain and overflow combination matched my shower hardware perfectly.
The drain comes with an adapter if your drain threads are larger, though I didn't have to use it.
This drain has a "toe activated" stopper so there's nothing to hide under the sink or to flop around like those irritating stoppers that 'push down'.
Install was quick and the drain comes with an gasket so there's no need for plumber's putty.
The overflow cover went on easily and it features a two-screw mount and the screws matched the color perfectly, as well.
Good quality and a good addition to my almond shower.

Universal Tip-Toe Drain 2-Hole Strainer Trim Kit, all quality and included is a brass bushing to adapt fine thread drain plug to fit 1-1/2 in. NPSM (1-7/8 in. - 11-1/2 UNC) coarse thread tub shoe. A drain tool is nice to have to remove the old drain and you need some plumbers putty too! Push down on cap to open and close drain plug. Very easy to install and use. No instructions but you really don't need any if you have basic repair skills.
Easy to Install, No Leaks

I like that this matched my Oil Rubber Bronze fixtures. I did need to look up, how to change out drain trim because mine seemed to be pretty stuck. My issue with the plunger design in general is that they tend to become bacteria farms and get gross. I have a plunger design in my sink and it's always getting totally clogged with bio film. Also the plunger design on this doesn't allow as much water to drain away. Might be good if you accidentally drop a small item in the tub. I think for me, I prefer the twist type or a good old fashioned rubber plug.
It looks nice and is well made, solid brass with the rubbed oil finish. Very solid.
My old tub stopper was not seating into the rubber seal as good as it should and I was tired of pushing and wiggling to get it to seal. Also, it was the style that has the knurled knob that my feet needed to avoid. This new pop-up design is smooth and well made. The reducer adapter is true threaded brass which feels of quality. My old adapter was plastic which worked, but since I installed it five years previous, I always felt it was cheap. Sure hope this nylon pop-up mechanism lasts. My feet really like this new stopper assembly. It was fairly easy to install if you understand the plumbing, although there was no instructions.
No Leaks, looks good, feels good

I acquired this product to replace the original drain stopper in my home that was installed over 25 years ago that still worked but was losing its aesthetic appeal due to pitting. Removal and replacement required a plumbers tool that I happen to already own (you need this for undersink work as well as tub work) but was pretty straightforward. I had to access installation instructions online since no instructions were provided with the product but it works well and looks awesome. This product is a great update for old drain stoppers that still work but look bad and for accessorizing new installations. Nobody wants to touch the drain, and you can operate this one with your foot.

This is an attractive, high-quality kit, and a snap to install. The Tip Toe drain kit is heavy brass and nicely finished (no rough edges or burrs on the threads). The only thing that felt a little lightweight was the 2-hole faceplate, but it is sturdy enough for the job it does, and the Polished Brass finish was excellent across the board. My application did require the included bushing for proper installation in our 20 y/o house. Start to finish, it was a 10-minute job, made easier with a drain removal tool, & #3 Philips screwdriver for the 2-hole faceplate. FYI - the large rubber gasket around the bushing should only be required for new tub installations (but discarded when replacing existing drain kits). Hope you found this helpful.

I put off this project for months thinking it would be difficult, but watched a youtube video and it was VERY easy. This kit changed our UGLY deteriorated trip-lever fixtures into a glowing beautiful look with convenient toe operation. Highly recommend!
