If our kitchen sink gets blocked, the best thing to do is to remove the u-bend and dig out the obstruction.

I can't do that with the shower drain, though. because it's under the shower tray.

Fortunately, the nature of the blockage is a lot more predictable in the shower, especially when family members have long hair.

I needed to clear the drain (again) yesterday, but rather than muck about with knitting needles and long-nosed pliers, I quickly created this little fishing hook from a large paper-clip (although any stiff wire would have done the job).

It was so quick, in fact, that it took a lot less time to make and use the tool that it did to write up this Instructable.

Such is life.


Did one today. Cleared my drain. Saved money (plumber). So simple! Thank you for this instructable.

Oh, no.<br><br><sub><sub>Please, no...</sub></sub>
