    This thing is great!
    We have been having problems with our bathtub drain since we moved into our apartment a few months ago. Two bottles of Drano later, i was still taking showers in four inches of water. I did some research, found this little zip-it guy, and paid for it with pocket change. The thought of the stuff it pulled out my drain still makes me gag, but it sure did the trick, and without any chemicals at all!!

    My Zip It Drain Cleaner came with Disappointment.
    After reading [Gigi's Sink Wizard Drain Clog Removal Tool review][1] , I headed over to the Dollar Tree to buy one. They were all out of them and didn't know when they would get anymore in. I had psyched myself up to cleaning out the bathroom drains, so I went across the street to Home Depot in search of a drain clog remover. Home Depot had several varieties, including one called the **Zip It Drain Cleaner**. It was cheap enough at $1.98 so I decided to try it out. The Zip It is very simply designed and made. It is a long, thin piece of plastic that has sharp barbs that curve upwards. The barbs are meant to grab hair and other debris as it pulled back out of the drain. **The way it works:** One end of the long barbed plastic strip has a tab of sorts with a hole.** **The hole allows a finger to fit through and grasp the tool. While holding on to the tool this way, simply fish the strip down into the drain pipe. Push and pull the tool in and out of the drain several times before pulling the strip completely out. You will need to repeat this until the clog materials are completely cleaned out. **How it worked:** The Zip It Drain Clog Removal Tool was easy to use. It slipped down the drain without a problem. The barbs seemed to hang up on things, but I guess that is the way it was designed. :)  I pulled up the tool to find little blips of black crud attached to the tool. I used it over and over with the same results. In the end, it didn't unclog the drain. **Bottom Line:** Although it didn't work well in the bathroom sink, it worked a little better in the shower drain. I still needed to use a drain cleaner on both drains to get it completely free of debris. [1]: http://www.viewpoints.com/Sink-Wizard-Drain-Clog-Removal-Tool-review-bcfa3

    Zip-It Drain Cleaner

    OK product - somewhat of a pain to use and not that much reach. Good only for hair clogs right near mouth of drain.

    Zip it works well for smaller clogs.

    I've used this product several times to clear out drains. I live in an older home and two of the drains didn't have stoppers over them when I moved in, so they get clogged up with hair and debris really easily. The best feature of the Zip it is it's ease of use. You use thread it carefully into the drain, move it around and pull it back out. Repeat as necessary. The downside is, you're really only supposed to use it one time, which makes the $3.99 price at my local hardware store a bit hard to swallow...although still way cheaper than a plumber and way safer than using a harsh abrasive like Draino. Also, it doesn't always work. It won't work on big clogs or on lime build-up. It's a pain to buy one and then find out you'll need a "bigger gun." I have actually cleaned one off with a thick towel, careful of the sharp plastic edges, and saved it to try out on my drains if they clog. If it works, I'll buy a new one and go to town fixing it. If it doesn't, it's usually a sign I actually need to call the plumber.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    The Cobra Zip-it is both efficient and affordable.

    I bought this product when the shower drain in my apartment began to drain so slowly that water would fill the tub; almost One-Third of the way full during a typical Ten minute shower. At first I tried a foaming pipe cleaner product that cost about three times as much, to no avail. After that I decided that I would try the Cobra Zip-it Drain Cleaner because it was cheap, and I was assured by a video on youtube showing its use that it would work. I must admit I was a little afraid of what would come up when I used the product, and I prepared for the worst. However, after one pass only a small amount of debris came up with none of it detaching from the hook. I ran some hot water down the drain, and the shower works just as well as it ever has.

    The product was easy to use, it was pretty sanitary, and it was 100% affective at clearing the drain in the tub. I would highly recommend this product to anyone having an issue with a slow draining shower or bath tub.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Zip-It drain cleaner is the best $2 you'll ever spend.

    The Zip-It drain cleaner and hair snare is one of the greatest products I have ever used. It is a very simple and effective design and one of the rare products taht does exactly what it claims. It is long enough to pass the trap in your drain and remove whatever is in the trap. If the clog far beyond that point you can't expect this product to remove it. That is not what it claims to do. But if you check the video you'll see what it *can* do. I stumbled across this product when I had (of course) a slow running drain and I was amazed at how simple and effective it is. It is safe to be used with family and pets in the house. It will not damage your pipes or septic tank. It will not splash up nasty chemicals to burn or blind you. And best of all, for a measly $2 it is reusable. The manufacturer advises against reusing it due to the pointy barbs but I just clean it and put it back in the package. It is seriously awesome. Remember when using it to pull it out slowly or you may splash something gross on yourself. I have very long thick hair and so does my daughter. The stuff this thing pulled from the drain was just scary. I have included a link to a you tube video that shows someone using this for the first time. It's very funny (i think he pulled a squirrel out of there) and provides a really good demo of the zip-it in use. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1x_TtfTL4yo (copy and paste in your address bar) VERY FUNNY! I highly recommend this product to anyone. Even if it turns out you have a deep clog it will be useful in future. It's just freaky what you'll pull out of your drain.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Drain Clogged? Zip it open

    I've had some problems with the sink in my bathroom clogging up and filling up with water. Who knows what's down there!  But whatever it is, it's has slowed down the drain to a crawl.  In order to unclog the drain I tried **Cobra's Zip It Drain Cleaning Tool**.   This little tool is a flexible, plastic strip about 1.5 foot long. On either side are sharp little spikes that look like a shark's tooth.  The end it also pointy.  You slide this device down the drain slowly and then slowly pull it back up.  With any luck a bunch of gunk will come up too.  When I used the **Zip It Drain Clearing Tool** it did help unclog the drain, but did not entirely solve the problem.  The nasty looking gunk that was plugging up the works did come up.  And the water in the sink did drain out, albeit slowly. However, it continued to drain slowly afterwards.  The **Zip It** plumbing tool helped unclog the sink by dislodging some of the debris stuck in the pipes. But I also needed some drain cleaner as well, to eat through the worst of it.  I would recommend Zip It based on my experience since it did help, and I'll rate this product as 3 stars. One word of caution is that the little ''teeth'' are pretty sharp, so keep it away from children.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    super little gadget - use it before using chemicals

    This is a very handle tool.  Yes, it is really just a piece of plastic, but it's very durable and the sharp upward-facing angles of the barbs on the side of the tool really pick up hair and other debris as you pull it back up the drain.  Definitely give this a try before pouring chemicals down your drain.  I have three daughters that share a shower and this tool did the trick to clear out the drain.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
