Summary

Sure, you're hair is short and doesn't clog anything up. But you're not the only one who lives there, now are you? This little device should help, and it's cheaper than Drano.

Solidworks and STL file attached. Let me know if you'd like another format.

Instructions

Print, snake out the hair clog. Be careful you don't break it off in the drain. I was successful with PLA, but ABS may be more flexible.

Throw it away when you're done. Don't be weird.

Print it in nylon then the flexiblity and strength won't be an issue. Could print in a spiral to get it to a good length.

Nifty! I just printed one with ABS and the flexibility seems good. The only problem is it is too short. This is where a parametric version would be awesome, since build platforms vary.

I totally agree! I'd like to see one that sits on a spiral in the build platform. Once it was printed, you could stretch it out. If it was PLA, then you could soften it with hot water and end up with a straight part that has teeth that spiral around a main axis.

I gotta say this is one of my favorites. I have printed this out a couple of times and used it. For me I have had no problems with PLA but hot water is a good idea if yours is prone to snapping.

What's there to be said but "it works".

Thanks,
It works wonderfully. One tip for PLA - hot water keeps it flexible / less likely to snap.

Glad to hear it. Do you think it needs any modifications?
