Depending on your sink and faucet configuration this could be useful. I've had good luck with it on my bathroom faucets but not my kitchen faucet. Of course the kitchen was where I really needed it to work.
There are two problems with the wrench. First the head isn't big enough to accommodate a large nut (like many kitchen faucets use). Second the head is too wide to fit well into the small confines of todays deep kitchen sinks.
Because it didn't work I ended up in an extended battle with the sink and my vice-grips. Just the situation I was trying to avoid.

This is a very well made basin wrench. Really durable and really makes the job so much easier! I now consider it a Must Have tool! You can adjust the length (telescope) which is awesome. I am so glad I bought this. It took me a minute to figure out I had to flip the top piece over, depending on which way you want to turn the wrench. Well made and sturdy. Good tool to have if you are a do - it - yourselfer!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RAYR DIDN'T NEED IT AFTER ALL
I WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THE NUT CONNECTING THE FAUCET TO THE SINK WITHOUT THE USE OF THIS BASIN WRENCH.
ACTUALLY THERE WASN'T ENOUGH CLEARANCE AROUND THE NUT TO USE THIS BASIN WRENCH.
THE UTUBE VIDEOS RECOMMENDED HAVING THIS WRENCH AVAILABLE, BUT IT DIDN'T MAKE REMOVAL OF THE NUT EASIER AT ALL.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dre Ok, somewhat!
Works okay if there is no trim around nut. If the area is really tight, then this will not work!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Talon It works if you know how to use it
I found the RIDGID faucet tool easier to work with under the cramped sink. I had to have a plumber show me how to use the basin wrench. I suppose for some situations it is an essential part of any tool kit. He used it to turn off my water in the street, so it's very strong. But not every tool will work in every situation, at least not for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by desertbc Great to have the right tool for the job
Had to replace a faucet behind a very large utility sink. Worked for about an hour trying to loosen the water lines that connect to the faucet in a space where a normal wrench does not allow room to turn the nuts. Once I bought this tool, the job became a 3 minute thing that was no problem. Don't waste your time trying to get by with traditional wrenches when replacing faucets. So even though I bought a wrench that has a very specific use, the time saved made up for the cost of the wrench many times over after just one use.

Great tool and a must have when installing a new faucet on a sink that is already installed. Tool quality and value were great. I did not give 5 stars on ease of use but this is because of the job and limited space to work in and not tool quality. Without this tool the job would be impossible, no other wrench I am aware of would be able to get into the limited space. Although not easy this tool makes the job possible.
