Ebbe Plastic Pipe Puller for ABS and PVC Pipe
The Ebbe Pipe Puller uses a steel plate to grip the inside of your pipe without damaging it. Once locked into place with proper alignment, you can easily pull the waste pipe and drain base together for a complete, watertight connection.
The knob handle gives you a firm grasp on the tool and is small enough to slide the drain or fitting over it.
After gluing the pipe and fixture, slide the drain fixture over the knob and onto the pipe and pull them completely together.
The Pipe Puller comes with Gripper Plates for 1.5in, 2in, and 3in pipe.
This simple tool gives you the confidence to make watertight connections without ripping up your subfloor or cutting through the ceiling below to gain access to the waste pipe.
