Need extractor tool help
1 Attachment(s)

Okay, my shower is leaking and decided to change the shower arm. but my shower arm broke, now about 1 inch piece inside the wall got stuck in there.

How can I get it out?! Please help, perhaps attach a picture of tool I need to get it out. Someone told me some extractor or nibble tool. but I have no idea what to buy and how to use.. Please help

The pic below shows EZ Outs, the size you want is a #7 with about 1/2 - 3/4" cut off the end. The EZ Out is hardened metal so use an abrasive cut off wheel to cut it and do not allow the metal to become hot which can remove the hardness from the tool.

The EZ Out works well because the harder you turn it the harder it grips and the gripping action is evenly distributed so there is less binding of the nipple being removed. When the outward force is in one spot the nipple may distort becoming more difficult to remove.
