Amy over at AmyWorks.com has put together a very nice video on how to use the Zip-It. She gives wonderful, step-by-step instructions, taking you clearly and concisely through the process. Problem is, she didn’t find any giant clogs down there. Thankfully she took a picture to prove the point. Thank you Amy!
From the friendly folks at the ACE in West Lake. She tells us that it is important to know what is clogging your drain before putting anything down your pipes. Sage advise, indeed. Kitchen clogs tend to be food stuff and grease that require a solution all their own. Bathrooms tend to have hair clogging the pipes, and this, as this friendly folk tells you, is a job for Zip-It (at :45).
The good folks at the Hot and Handy Show give a fairly detailed tutorial on how to unclog your drains. She refers to Zip-It as a “plastic snake”. While we appreciate the association with our larger siblings, we would prefer to keep things informal: you can call us “Zip-It”.
Good stuff at 1:15.
It may come as no surprise, but we love people with curly hair. Long, thick, naturally curly hair. The curlier the better. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t have any problem with bald people. We love bald people too. It’s just that bald people look at Zip-It and say “So, what do you want me to do with this, then?” But, you give a Zip-It to someone with curly hair – You are going to make someone very happy.
The good stuff happens at 1:59 in this video. She speeds up the film and it seems to me that there should be some Benny Hillifying done to that segment.
This gal had lost an earring. One of her favorites (I’m guessing). A couple of good tugs with her trusty Zip-It and she found her long lost jewelry. Good stuff at :34.
This is whoissugar (I believe that name is rhtorical). She is extolling the virtues of Zip-It to her followers. If you pay close attention you might just get some shampoo and conditioner tips as well. Now, whoissugar doesn’t actually show Zip-It in use, but she’s giving us a shout-out, so we’d figure we’d shout back.
While we take the art of unclogging drains very seriously, it cannot be denied that the process is a bit nasty. Through the years we have been blessed with customers who are demented enough to video themselves using Zip-It. The videos contain all the nervous laughter, “oh my God” first rushes, and horrors-of-the-realities that one would expect when using Zip-It.
We have taken the best moments of these videos and put them together in one, loving, ode to our fans. As gross as Zip-It might be, it works even better. Enjoy!

Justin apparently DOES have what it takes – as long as he doesn’t have to touch the rest of it with his hand (That doesn’t sound very champion-like).
Good stuff almost immediately at :03.
This video is rather long (9:20), but the videographer seems to be enjoying herself, so she can take as long as she wants, as far as I’m concerned. She pulls out one massive clump of hair, and then seems rather disappointed. I don’t know what she was hoping to find. She she be proud of that thing.
She also makes some hair dance, Offers an interesting opinion on the aroma of her catch, waxes poetic on the shape of the globs of hair (much as one would when looking at clouds), and requests an answer to the question of where spirals come from (you have to watch).
Good stuff at :31, :56, 1:40, 6:20 and 7:16
Also, there is at lease one good obscenity in there, and maybe a few lesser ones.
This guy doesn’t say much, which is okay. He doesn’t need to. The subtle gasps tell us all we really need to know. Also, after he pulls the clog out of his tub at the :33 mark, he brings it in for a nice close up.
He also cleans out his sink. A good double whammy in one video. He pulls that out at about 1:02. Nice work! I also feel the need to give the man props for the wise use of gloves.
