Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Do The Job The little suction cups don't stay down, so the hair just goes right by and down the drain. Disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good in theory I expected this to work but I forgot the shower floor is small square textured tiles. The little suctions wouldn’t stay attached. It did an excellent job of catching hair but it moved out of the way. I’m also uncertain whether the typical shower drain is positioned well enough for everyone to be able to use this. The smooth surface would be ther but the drain in a tub is too close to the side. I believe this product is meant to lay flat. Perhaps other reviewers will comment on whether it works well with a bathtub drain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers a multitude of sins I used the drain covers on a boat to cover old not very pretty drains that could not be replaced because of a possible seal problem. They look great, stay in place, and we’re the perfect solution. Now I can show off my tub without cringing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Suction Cups don't stick. My tub is plastic and textured. So that may be why. As soon as water hits it, it floats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Drain Cover Ever! I bought the teal starfish drain cover last year. It is the best drain cover I have ever had. Sticks well and captures the hair, even after a year of use. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT work Looks cute but It doesnt stay stuck (even on marble or large non textured tiles) and it certainly wouldnt stick on small tiles with a lot of grout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Drain Cover I've Found Purchases in October 2017. Have tried many different drain covers for our shower and this has been the best one I found. I've bought extras in case they stop making them. Some hair gets through the sides if I don't make sure I put the cover back correctly after cleaning the tub/shower. Have not had any problems with the cover not sticking in place and it's easy to remove the hair caught by the cover. The white cover stained due to our hard water. Have not had staining issues with the teal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drain cover ever!!! This is the best drain cover ever made. No hair gets by this starfish!! I have been looking for years for something like this. I’ve tried many different versions of drain covers but this does the trick!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this little guy This little starfish has been getting some not-so-stellar reviews, but it's just perfect for me, and I'm going to buy #2 for the 2nd bath. The reviews I'm reading say it doesn't stick. I wonder if they have it directly under a water-flow? Maybe it doesn't stick 100%, but for me it does stay in place enough (my shower flow does not directly hit it), and catches my long hair, keeping it from going down and clogging the drain (ick). And it's cute, in its lovely turquoise color. Also, I find it easy to clean. I have tried other similar products which were way worse and got tossed. You go, little starfish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not stick I had the same experience as other reviewers. This drain cover did not stick to my tiles. I will be returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not stick This does not stick. As soon as water is in the tub its shifts off the drain. Does not work.
Date published: 2018-01-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I picked this up on a whim while I was in the store because if I had read the reviews, I wouldn't have gotten it. As others have mentioned. It doesn't fit securely on any drain in my house where I would need it! I plan to return it ASAP.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great form, Awful function This just doesn't work. Like another reviewer, I tried this on multiple shower & tub drains. The mini suction cups don't stick well, despite cleaning the surfaces thoroughly. But whether they stick or not, so much hair gets under this "cover." There was very little hair on top of this item, there was some wound around the mini suction cups (which seem to do a better job catching hair than the top), but most hair and soap scum was underneath on the drain (or down the drain). There is also a surprising amount of residual scum and mildew on the item for only using this a few times. It's too bad because it's really cute and this rubbery plastic won't rust. Definitely do not recommend this item, and wish I could return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could return it. I tried it in two tubs and one shower and it just won't stay attached. In the shower it will still lay down and does catch hair without being attached, but the water/soap build up is nasty since the drain is covered. I would pass on this stocking stuffer. It's cute but just doesn't do its job well enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Starfish One of the biggest problems I have with drain covers is they create water buildup in the shower. Before I know it, I have water up to my ankles while taking a shower and then the water will take an additional five minutes to drain once the shower is over. However, this wasn't the case while using the Starfish Drain Cover! I didn't end up in shallow shower water, the cover caught A LOT of hair, and water drained in a timely manner! Not quite sure how much hair escaped the cover and actually went done the drain though! From what I saw, A LOT of hair got caught on the cover.

Would this work for a bathroom sink drain?

I’m looking for a drain cover that work for my bathroom sink. Would this work with a smaller drain like that?
Asked by: Yyes
I don't think so - I think it would be too big. But it's inexpensive enough to try.

What size is the area that is protected?

I have a drain that is 4.5x4.5" square and flat. Will this fit over it?

Will this product work over a drain cover?

My shower/tub has a drain plug for the bathtub that has a knob on it that screws down to seal the drain. I'm estimating it is a height of 1/2 to 1-inch maximum. The product appears that it might have the shape to fit over my drain cover. If it doesn't do you have another product to recommend?
Asked by: Oreo8417
I cannot offer an answer from personal experience but I don’t believe it will work. I believe I am familiar with the type of drain plug you are referring to. This product is silicon and flexible enough to cover the knob but don’t think it is big enough to seal and prevent hair from continuing down the drain.
