Tub Retrofit Drain Kit

I'm putting new fixtures on my fiberlass tub. The old toggle open/close device at the overflow hasn't worked right for years. I know there are kits that replace the drain toggle with a straight overflow plate and the drain has a pull up device much like a kitchen sink. Aside from this I am wondering if there are any drain retrofit devices like this direct pull up drain where you can install it without removing and replacing the threaded drain tube itself. I can remove the cover grid plate on the existing drain but removing the threaded drain flange itself would be a much bigger job since the tub has been installed about 30 years.

You might have to cut it out when they are that old. No big deal, just dont cut the tub. Toe kicks are nice, no linkage to rust away. Good Luck!
