How to Remove Your Bathtub Stopper
FixMyDrain.com shows you the easiest way to remove the most common of bathtub stoppers with only a pair of pliers and a flathead screwdriver. If you have a tub stopper that you pull up and turn, you need to first leave the stopper in the closed position and hold the base firmly in place while you loosen the top counterclockwise. You may need to place a rag around the top and use a pair of pliers to loosen it if it won’t budge.
If your bathtub stopper will still not come out there might be a set screw in the assembly. If this is the case, simply loosen the screw but do not remove it and you should then be able to use a flathead screwdriver to remove the stem of the stopper.
