FIRST CHECK FOR A SET SCREW. IF YOU HAVE A SET SCREW TYPE PLUG STOPPER YOU WILL NEED A SCREW DRIVER to loosen it while lifting up on the plug

1) Look under plug for a set screw
2) Loosen set screw or twist off depending on your variety
3) Remove hair or debris
4) Turn water on to test if it is cleared or another problem exists
5) Replace drain plug
***** DO NOT UNSCREW ALL THE WAY. LIFT WHILE LOOSENING, SO YOU DON'T LOSE YOUR SCREW DOWN THE DRAIN. ********
We recently bought a house and the master bedroom metal plug stopper comes all the way out including the metal cross bars from the drain. This means we have a larger hole and nothing to stop the larger materials from making their way to out septic system. When the past owners wanted to get the plug up they just pulled until the metal support cross bars broke off hence the large hole when the plug is out.
I had a hard time at first, as some dog hair found its way down and clogged up just under the drain. I spun for a while trying to unscrew it but realized it must not come out by twisting. I got down and looked under the plug and there is a set screw. Please while twisting this off pull up until the drain comes off. The screw will still be attached and not get lost down the drain. Simple and easy do it yourself project. removing a pop-up stopper
Great simple easy DIY job.

Make sure you are careful not to strip the set screw. If you do you will more likely have to bust out the cross sections and install a new tub drain and plug, so be careful. These sit for longer period. Ocassionally people put in a steel screw and it rusts into place. If you luck it isn't very hard as shown it is simple and with a phillips screwdriver you can have the project done in a few minutes including cleaning the drain, as I did above. It took me 3 minutes before I realized I had a set screw to remove. All the joys of a new home.
