Shower drains getting blocked with long hairs, which then knot-up in the pipe and eventually slow down the water drainage rate to a trickle, is a common problem. This is especially so with narrow-bore or older drains.

This simple but brilliant OXO `good grips' device is very well thought out. It's big enough to cover the entire drain aperture of almost any shower and has a rubber seal-ring around its circumference which performs two functions: it stays where it is and cannot be easily dislodged from the drain aperture by water pressure from the shower head, or by your feet, and it prevents the ingress of hair or any other matter under the edge. It has small drain-holes (it actually looks like a shower-head) rather than a mesh so is very effective at catching everything.

A minority of reviewers here report that it did not work well for them, with their particular shower drains. It's probably a good idea to consider their experiences too prior to purchase; it seems in most of these reported cases the surface containing the drain aperture was not flat, and therefore because this OXO device is larger than most in diameter, it won't work with a curved tub. I can only re-state that in our shower (which has a flat floor), it works brilliantly and I can't think of how it might be improved.

Overall, this is an intelligently designed product where all the small details have been thought through and addressed. Highly recommended for the job, and cheap too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and effective 16 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
Paid 6.64 in Sep 2012

Simple design and effective. It is really meant for flat surfaces but seems to work well in our bath with a little positioning. Doesn't move unless really kicked, and seems to have already prevented hair from clogging the bath.

Plus points are that it's flat, so no need to worry about whether it will fit in the hole, as it sits on top; also the edge has a silicon gasket which stops stuff sneaking underneath.

Does the job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very effective strainer! 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase
I purchased this item as I was fed up with clearing the blocked shower drain with a plunger and drain cleaner. I live in a household with two ladies, both of whom wash their hair in the shower. The inevitable result is that within a week of regular use the shower tray starts to fill up with water and won't drain away as it is blocked with fine hair which the standard shower strainer will not catch.
I decided to give the OXO a go as a quick and cheap remedy. If it didn't work then nothing was lost!
I replaced the standard drainer with OXO and what a difference! The OXO catches the fine hair very easily and the advantage is that you can see the hair accumulating on its top face. The OXO is very easy to clean as one can push the hair off the filter with one's fingers and then rinse the soap scum off. A first class, simple product that works really well.
In my shower tray it is possible to accidentally push the OXO off the drain with one's foot as there is no securing mechanism to keep it in place but it's a small point otherwise I would have given it 5 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars It works (but not with a very fast flow) 23 Oct 2012
By smofz

I was skeptical at first but decided to try it after reading the reviews. It works well with slow to moderate water flow. If it is too fast a flow, it will lift the drain off, but overall, I'm happy with the purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do the job.... 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this as I have long hair, and didn't want to clog up the shower plug hole. I thought this looked just the job. It wasn't. You cannot get it to lie flat enough over the hole, so the hair just goes under it. Returned and got a refund. Bought a far cheaper plastic one that works a treat.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but thats about it! 9 Jun 2012
By CG
Verified Purchase
I bought this after reading the good reviews, but it does not work as described. It moves, it does not stick and the hairs go under the so called seal. As far as hair catchers go, it looks good but that's not why I bought it! I'm rather disappointed with this product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hair today, gone tomorrow.... 11 May 2014
By Doc W

There are a number of jobs in this world that I don't like doing because they are difficult, there are equally jobs that I don't like doing because they are "icky", getting hair out of the shower drain is one of the few jobs which combines both of these aspects.

We suffered from hair clogging up our drain which led to water backing up in the shower tray, having little ones in the house and being a little worried about the age of the pipes I wanted to avoid using harsh chemicals, so I needed to avoid the issue happening in the first place.

The oxo good grips products is simple design but works extremely efficiently in our flat based shower (see other reviews for times it has not worked so well) it catches hairs well and so far we have not had a recurrence of the blocking.

Two things you should be aware of
1) it stays in place but it doesn't seal onto the base of the shower
2) you will be afraid of the amount of hair it catches, I now expect to find myself bald by the end of the week.

If you are a pessimistic hypochondriac this may not be the product for you, if you want to avoid hair blocked drains it is!
