The three foot FlexicoreÃÂ® Closet Auger is the ideal tool for breaking up stoppages or retrieving lost objects in clogged toilet bowls. It works where plungers fail. The patented Flexicore cable is made from two layers of tempered spring wire wrapped tightly around a 49-stand wire rope center. It resists kinking and breaking yet has the right flexibility to get through low flow toilets. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s so tough, itÃ¢â¬â¢s guaranteed for a full year. The optional down head works like a universal joint, following the bowl contours while protecting inner bowl walls from chipping or breaking. The brass finish steel tube and galvanized steel turning rod can handle lots of abuse. Other features include vinyl bowl guard to protect the bowl against scratching, vinyl grip handle with Ã¢â¬ÅGrip ClipÃ¢â¬Â to hold cable, and a smooth turning handle for easy operation.
