How does foot Lok stop work?

If your bathtub or shower has this type of drain, stepping down on the stopper locks it in place, preventing water from draining. Most foot lock drain stoppers offer flexibility, by moving back and forth under pressure to help avoid stubbed toes. Or if you have dexterous toes, you can pull it up with your foot.
