The end fits into the broken pipe and when you turn it with a wrench the wing part pushes out and grabs it so you can turn it and unscrew the piece.
This one surely does fit. Do you still have it?
You see how it has a little wing thing that comes out?
Won't go into what hole? The hole in the wall?
Use the paper clip icon and post it here.
The smaller one does not fit inside?
There are no threads to grab just the inside of the broken pipe. The little wing sticks out and that is what grabs the sides. Put the smaller one in and put it in far enough that the little wing will be inside the pipe. Then turn counter clockwise and the wing thing will grab and give the tension needed to unscrew the piece.
The larger one will not fit?
No need because the smaller one is the right size. Try the smaller one again and be sure that you are turning the correct direction. You might have to jiggle it a bit or turn it a little bit sideways. The goal is to get the little wing part to come out and make it wider.. It does not have to be straight. It just has to grab.
You know what they say. 16 times the charm! If not then take a small, flat head screwdriver and hammer it in under the edge of the piece and pry it up. Eventually you will be able to pry the piece up enough to grab it with some pliers and pull it out.
I do not think that would work. The teeth are what need to bite. How about trying the flat head screwdriver? Do you have a hack saw?
Since the nipple extractors are not working then take a hack saw blade and cut a slot on the inside. Cut enough to get all the way through but not so much that you cut the threads. Take a small flat head screw driver and pry in the slot you cut then peel it out with pliers.
