Answer: 
I didn't have this problem. Did you use plenty of plumbers putty under the rim?
You could have a helper hold it from above, by sticking pliers into the holes in the neck.

Answer: 
The plumber's putty should hold it in place. Make sure you warmed up the putty, applied it to the top part, and pushed the top part down against the sink. It shouldn't move at that point.

Answer: 
I have a special tool just for sink and tub drains, but a second pair of pliers and a screwdriver work in a pinch. Insert the screwdriver into the jaws of the pliers, then feed the pliers handles into the sink basket. The screwdriver acts like a tee handle, giving you more leverage to tighten with. Might need 2 people if the sink is in place.

Answer: 
This strainer should not spin on you. Because the nut to tighten in below the cup it draws it down evenly. You should just have to tighen until it starts to spin and you need to make sure that the plumber putty is new, warm and smooth will make the job easier.

Answer: 
The plastic piece that attaches to this, either a "P'" trap or a tail piece, will have a threaded collar and a washer. You can use either the brass collar that comes with the sink strainer or the plastic strainer that comes with the plastic assembly. By all means, use a washer.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy installation; difficulty reading the "instructions" on the box After removing the old, corroded, strainer (just 10 years old!), I cleaned both the top of the sink where the new, Glacier Bay, strainer would be placed (not easy, due to all the dried, stuck, plumber's putty chunks and septic gunk that had accumulated), and the bottom of the sink from inside the cabinet, which needed to be scraped a little bit due to dried-up plumber's putty. After lightly sanding on the bottom of the sink (never sand the sink's upper surfaces!!!), I was able to connect all the parts, despite the tiny drawing and scanty, hard-to-read, "instructions" on the box (they should have spent a little bit on printed instructions that could be easily read; fortunately, I have done this many times, so, I knew what to do). There was a paper ring that did not seem to have a purpose, except, possibly, to keep the rubber O-ring (included, but not shown in the HD product image; n.b., the strainer comes in two pieces, which is also not shown; one is the top that people see, and the other connects the strainer from the bottom of the sink) from chafing against the strainer while in the box, and was not shown or mentioned on the box, so I threw it away (it wouldn't make sense to have a paper product anywhere on the strainer, anyway!). Also, I had a little difficulty keeping the strainer top from turning while tightening the bolt from the bottom, but, slow and patient work did the trick (I did it by myself; a second pair of hands for 2 minutes would have helped!). After it was done, I had to cut the BOTTOM of the plastic drain pipe (between the strainer and P-trap) about 3/4" to fit, because the Glacier Bay strainer was longer than the old one (n.b., if your drain pipe has an inlet for the dishwasher drain, do NOT cut from the top of the pipe, or you risk not having enough roon for the dishwasher hose connection!). The included stopper holds water very well, but, I suspect that the chintzy-looking, metal, "clip" will break after regular use (I rarely use mine for such, so, it shouldn't be an issue). The result looks and seals great. There is a strong odor of rubber, metal, and plumber's putty, coming from the sink cabinet, but, after 3 days, it is fading, so, it shouldn't be an issue (nothing toxic, I'm sure!). Great price, and easiest installation I've experienced in 30 years of household plumbing! December 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best sink strainer for the money. EaSy To InStaLl! The lock nut is a great design especially for a thicker granite sinks. Do not buy the cheaper $7.98 strainer. Buy this one! This strainer has changed installing a kitchen sink from something I dread doing to something I would gladly help a buddy with. December 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Fit - Best Mate to BADGER InSinkErator This Stainless Steal was the best finish I found to match the BADGER InSinkErator. The Long Shank helped compensate for the difference in the shallow 60/40 sink I chose, so an extension drain tube was not required in the pre-packed plumbing kit also available at HD. January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sink Strainer This is a very well made product and looks great in my new sink. It was a fraction of the cost of all the others that I checked. I ordered it online and picked up in the store, as I find that it is much easier then trying to find what Im looking for in Home Depot. I checked the reviews and everyone was satisfied, so I believe that it was the best choice for me. Only time will tell how well it holds up, but for now I am very happy with the purchase. September 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well on stainless steel sink. I replaced a spin type basket that I couldn't get to stop leaking even after buying new washers. the installation was so much easier and sealed tight. No leaks. September 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality I read the reviews first. Got this one. Not disappointed. I sealed with white kitchen and bath silicone (because I didn't have putty) and so far so good. Installed it on one side of the kitchen double sink. Darn, it looks super good and now the left side needs to match... August 4, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Appears to be a solid product, but the strainer leaks; bringing back the basket for another... I had to get a magnifying glass to read instructions on the box. It would have been nice to simply have had a sheet of paper with normal font, instead of the .04 font used in the pictures on the back of the box. I agree with others, it went together easily It should have had a warning for the 'fiber' washer; of course if I could see the picture I would have known. Instead I tore open the package including the washer thinking it was trash. Not a biggie; I still got it installed successfully. Reason writing review is I'm conscious about water, perhaps it's just this one I received, but, the strainer leaks so fill your sink with water, even if you mess and attempt to sit the strain plug correctly...it still leaks. Calling to see if I can get a replacement, perhaps the one shipped was substandard, I did notice it appeared bent a bit when I opened the box. June 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install Even this female new homeowner could install with the help of YouTube. The pieces screw apart then the bottom part attaches from bottom...I think this feature helps secure and seal strainer better than other ones we tried. December 30, 2014
