Thank you for your question, she01! If the stopper does not lift straight out of the drain, you will need to first remove the horizontal rod.To do this, unscrew the nut on the back of the drain assembly below the sink, pull out the horizontal rod, then remove the stopper. Note that the horizontal rod can either be installed so that it goes through the loop at the bottom of the stopper or to the side of the loop (so that the horizontal rod does not need to be removed to take out the stopper).
Best regards, Jon
