How does a trip lever drain stopper work?

With the trip lever down, the plunger is lifted and the drain is open; when the trip lever is up, the plunger is forced down and the drain is closed. And if the tub is accidentally overfilled, excess water can still run down the overflow tube behind the trip-lever plate and can drain away because the plunger is hollow.

This breaks its connection to the trip lever, so the stopper cannot hold water as it should. Luckily, adjusting a faulty bathtub drain stoper is quite easy.
