I would like to remove my old drain basket and replace it with a new one. However, it doesn’t appear to by a typical drain with the crossbars. I’m afraid to torque on it and mess it up or find out it’s not threaded etc. has anyone had experience removing this trip of drain?

Very easy to remove BUT you must go slowly and pay close attention

I use a sawzall but I would strongly suggest you use a hacksaw blade and slowly cut the flange and down the side making sure you do not go to deep

Then make another cut about a 1/2" away from your first cut again just enough that you reach the old threads but not to deep as to damage them

After the two cuts are made get an old flat screw driver and hammer and gently hit the middle section of the two cuts and the piece should start to bend in

Once that piece (cut piece) is removed then fold in either of the sides where the piece was removed and once it is folded in you can remove the piece with needle nose pliers

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
