How Does Our Drain Stopper Work?

The Snug Plug is very simple to use, we feel like its one of the easiest to use bath drain stoppers on the market today. See the images for reference. When you remove it from the packaging, you'll see that it doesn't have a chain or leash, and no permanent installation is required.



Cleaning your Snug Plug is important. While the material used, TPE - Thermoplastic Elastomer, is non-porous, the color can stain depending on what minerals are in your water. Weekly cleanings will minimize staining and will keep your Snug Plug in pristine condition for many years.

Recycling Information

Yes, the Snug Plug is 100% recyclable! Thanks to our revolutionary TPE material, when it's time to replace or discard your bathtub drain stopper you can recycle it along with all your regular curbside recycling.


To use your new Snug Plug for the first time, simply place it on top of the drain hole. By default the Snug Plug will be in the plug position, meaning that it will seal the drain and hold water. The first image is how the Snug Plug will look.

Opening the Drain

The good news is you don't have to remove the Snug Plug each time you want to switch from plugging to draining. To allow draining, simply press down in the middle of the Snug Plug. The edges will flip up like shown in second image to the left. In this position, water will flow as normal.


It's quite simple to clean and maintain your new Snug Plug. Here are the two easy options:

  1. Place it in your dishwasher.
  2. Wash it along with your clothes in the washing machine.
