      This is the best drain cleaner I have ever used! I have tried every liquid drain cleaner on the market and nothing worked. Saw this item and figuring I had nothing to lose but a couple of dollars if it didn't work. To my surprise it worked quick and easy! Drain has not worked this well since brand new. A lot cheaper than all the chemicals and faster too.

        I tried to remove a clog in the bathroom sink a variety different ways and no luck...I went to see what I could get to get the job done and here was this Zip-it and I thought it might work. I had to take the trap off because the clog was pretty far in, but I shot the zip it in there and out came the hairball...I had to have a plumber come in last time and they did it for 200 bucks..If you are handy then get this tool and save money.

          Get this tool if your drain is slow and it's from hair clogging your drains. Works great and you can reuse it quite a bit before the barbs on the ends start to get dull and don't pull out the hair clogs as well anymore. This is my third one over 3 years using them. I think it's a much better option than chemicals that never end up working anyway!! This is an instant fix to your shower or tub's slow drain issues!! Takes a matter of seconds to finish.

            Where has this thing been?! I was looking for a natural slow draining bathroom sink remedy. The zip-it is inexpensive and easy to use. Slide it down the drain, pull it out! That easy! This simple gadget is a miracle!

              Wow, once you get the hang of using it, it is amazing what you can extract in hair from your tub. Be careful as you can cut yourself but it needs those edges to grab that hair.

                  The guy at the store said to get this a long with a chemical. I used it first and DON'T NEED THE CHEMICALS. It did the trip on my bathroom pedestal sick. SO much better than pouring chemicals into the water supply.

                    I stuck this thing in the drain to get a [*] hairball and sure enough I got it. That little baѕtard was wedged in there pretty good too.

                    The Zip-It is a great tool. I had a slow shower drain in my daughter's (toddler with a lot of hair) bathroom. I had tried all of the home do-it-yourself plumbing tricks such as excessive plunging and the good baking soda-vinegar rinse. I also removed the overflow plate and inserted a wire clothes hanger but was unsuccessful. I headed to the hardware store on Thanksgiving Eve in search of a drain snake. However, the associate suggested the Zip-It. I was skeptical so I purchased the Zip-It, an 8-ft drain snake tool and a new drain cover-strainer designed especially for hair. I said the Zip-It would be my first line of defense in attacking the slow drain. I returned home and used the Zip-It by inserting it in the overflow opening and to my surprise the balls of hair were removed instantly. The Zip-It is now safely stored in the garage and I will need to return an item( 8-ft drain snake) on Black Friday!!

                    I bought this item from a co-workers recommendation and I was pleasantly surprized how well it work and for only [$]! Forget calling a plumber at $100 a visit. this item worked perfectly. Highly recommend.

                        Handyman at my house showed Zip it to me.. I used it and in no more than 2 min, I had a vanity sink cleared.. I used to have to take the pipes a part and take out all the items I stored under the sink... I can't believe I've gone so long without knowing of Zip It.. Another invention I'm saying " Why didn't I think of that"...

                              I've been using this product for a few months now. Everytime my wife complains that the bathroom drain is clogged, I snake this into the drain and after pulling out large clumps of hair and other gross looking stuff the drain is working great again. Love it!

                                  Cheap, does the trick - what more could you want?
                                  Packaging said one time use, but I washed it off and have been reusing it many times.

                                  We had a lot of hair getting stuck in our shower drain, and after a few bottles of Drano, I decided I needed something better. Stuck this in a few times, it caught the hair and pulled it out.
                                  Works like a charm!
