She will need 2 sets of pliers to remove the drain plug. One to hold the stopper itself and a smaller pair to unscrew the knob that she uses to open and close it. Once the knob is off the bolt underneath it can be unscrewed to remove the drain stopper. She will probably find a lot of hair under it in the drain opening. A piece of wire will pull it out.

: i'll try to make this short. my future daughter in law is accross the country...4 am there alone...not with full fuctioning arms and hands..sick..and needs to unclog her bathtub.
: she said the drain plug was push to close pull to open...cant say i've ever seen it. i suggested a plunger after chemicals didn't help but the plunger closes the plug.
: any ideas/links on how to remove the plug and when she gets that far, whats the best way to cover the overflow so the plunger can be used.
: thanks for any advice
: far-away mom
