What do you think about this video?

Dee Quintessence: Thanks for making this video!

Dan Jones: Thanks for making this video! I used the 1/2" NC Tap with a 1 1/2 inch length of 3/8" dia. wood dowel rod. It worked fantastic. Now my shower control works better than ever. Once again, thanks for the video. It's been greatly appreciated!

Drek taton: thanks for posting this man no other video showed the middle popping out but not the casing i couldn't figure out wtf was wrong with my piece i thought it was different but u helped me so much and saved me around 150 dollars for a plumber

chris p: you are the man sir!!!! nice job this worked perfectly for me also!!! Thanks!!!!

retroeddie: I had this problem with a stuck cartridge yesterday (before going to youtube)...went to my Dad and told him what happened.  He went out to the shed and got this easy out thing I've never used before...he told me to do exactly what you did.  He's not a plumber, but I swear that old guy knows EVERYTHING!  LOL!

Daydragon1234: For mine it looks like someone put a layer of glue between the stem area. And we haven't used this shower for quite a few years. So I'll see if I can remove it. Because I've been trying to twist and jiggle pull it out but no luck till I noticed with a flash light that there's a light layer of clear stuff over the sides of it.

Adimer Ortiz: thanks

Rob Plotts: Man i know this is an old vid but thank you! the easy out work like a champ.i was about to go buy a new mixer valve .saved me time and money big time thanks again 👍👍👍

William Micheal: You will never find that puller, and if you do still easier to just replace the whole thing.

Jarrett Blain: I had the same issue today with the cartridge staying stuck so what I used was a pair of channel locks and you just stick one noses of the plier in there and you could wedged in there just enough so you could start to turn it while you're applying pressure in wards all the while turning counterclockwise and you're still pushing down on the plier and it will work itself out

andy8218: Simple solution to remove the stuck cartridge is the HDX150 tool, you can google search the tool and find it before you attempt to repair
the Moen valve.

Manuel Yi Donoy: Good advice but very poor lighting and camera work. You get seasick with all the movement!

Anthony Carr: BEST video about the "what if" pieces. All the other videos didn't take the -uh oh, the cylindar didn't come out, now what do I do - question into account! Now - back the hardware store, Robin!

Joshua Wilson: .

dee carlos: good job boss....THANKS!

Michael Hammer: I also had a stuck over 30 yrs old Moen Shower Cartridge. I tried removing it, and the stem pulled out leaving the Cartridge housing stuck in the Valve. I almost gave up and was going to replace the entire Fixture. I purchased a easy out tool at my auto parts store. It worked so well compared to junk pullers the plumbing stores sold. I saw your video after the fact and was glad to see someone posting a video on using a easy out. Nice job. Thank you.

JethroSandwich: Thanks for posting this, dude!  I pulled out the stem and used the #6 to extract the sleeve-worked like a charm.
