Removing pop-up tub stopper
Posted by edbreyer on February 10, 2003 at 14:21:55:
My neighbor�s bathtub has a spring-loaded pop-up stopper that he wants to remove temporarily to help clear a clog. Unfortunately, I can�t see how to get this stopper out. There doesn�t seem to be any visible setscrew or retaining clip but it is firmly attached. Trying to unscrew it doesn�t work - the stopper just spins on the stubby rod that connects it to the drain assembly. By the way, there is no lever mechanism that operates this pop-up � I just operates by pushing the stopper down or pulling it up. Any ideas?
