Removing Common Bathtub Stoppers
You can remove the most common types of bathtub stoppers with just a flathead screwdriver and a pair of pliers. A bathtub stopper that you pull up and turn should be left in the closed position while you firmly hold the base and loosen the top by turning counter clockwise. If the stopper will not easily come out after loosening, there may be a set screw in place that needs to be loosened.
Our step by step videos will show you first-hand how to remove the most common types of bathtub stoppers.
