I was successful removing the drain in the master bath tub with the Drain Key I bought from Granger, but the drain in the other bath tub will not budge. Any suggestions?

Answer: 
Hello,
That is a difficult answer, sometimes you have to "cut them out" sometimes appling heat will do the trick. Thai is an area whet a Plumbing Professional needs to be called, you can do a lot of damage to the tub with heat and excessive force. If you cannot remove it with this tool, I would seek a nearby plumber for advice, Sorry... I hope this answers your question, thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!

Answer: 
Hello,
Well that is the $200 question & answer, if you cannot get the set screw out of the handle you will need to call a plumber. I can suggest you dissemble the valve best you can, this might require cutting the handle into pieces so you can drill out the set screw. Or get to the set screw, if there is anything hanging out enough to get a pair of Vise Grips on the set screw to remove it. This will not be an easy fix, you might want to call a Professional for help. Sorry I wish I had better news.

I hope this answers your question, thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!
