The Gooseneck Gripper Broken Shower Pipe Fix!

The Gooseneck Gripper is the simple solution to a common plumbing problem:  “How to fix a shower head that has broken off leaving the threaded end in the wall fitting?” Because the shower arm breaks inside the wall, this is a big problem.  The Gooseneck Gripper is the answer to that question. The Gooseneck Gripper is specifically designed to fit in the close constraints of a shower arm elbow without bottoming out, allowing you to extract the broken shower arm nipple without damaging the shower elbow.

So, with the Gooseneck Gripper a plumber will be able to perform this job quickly and make this task more profitable.

Is it for all broken shower pipes & why should I buy it?

The Gooseneck Gripper was specifically engineered to insert into the tight constraints of a shower elbow and remove the old broken shower pipe without bottoming out or damaging the elbow. Other ½” Nipple Extractors will either bottom out before removing the nipple or not fit at all. Some nipple extractors require trade knowledge to use. The Gooseneck Gripper is so easy to use; anyone can use it to safely and easily finish the job.

Current methods of extracting broken shower arms are ineffective, complicated and can cause damage to your plumbing in the wall.  The old methods of banging a flat file into the shower fitting and trying to spin out the broken piece or cutting into the broken nipple with a hacksaw blade and picking it out are over! Why risk damaging the plumbing when the Gooseneck Gripper is so easy to use?  I see a lot of “How to” questions on the web asking, “How do I remove a broken shower head nipple” or “How do I remove a shower pipe nipple”. This is the tool to use. The Gooseneck Gripper is so safe and easy to use. It will save you from damaging your existing plumbing.
