: I have one of those poppy thingy stoppers and my roommate unscrews it when she takes a shower so the water will drain quicker. Well now she unscrewed it and the thing in the drain is stripped and I can't put the stopper back in. One of the guys down the sreet said he'd go under the house if thats what it takes. What does he need to do?????

Liz,
These are made in two pieces--the little top knob will screw off, if you hold onto the larger drain piece with pliers. Sometimes the piece that screws into the drain gets pushed up and is hard to reattach, without taking the top knob off. I would think that it would be very hard to strip this out without using tools, they are usually pretty substantial threads.
