Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wachowski Won't work for my old kitchen faucet nut
I tried this for my old kitchen faucet removal. I can see how this tool would work for some but not others. & because it is made of plastic it would expand once around the nut therefore would not loosen the tight, old nut. I have attached a picture to show you mine. The guy at home depot told me it would work too, but I will be returning it.

This tool worked great for a frozen supply line faucet to change out the insides of the toilet. My husband, my son and I all tried different wrenches along with Liquid Wrench and still couldn't get the faucet handle to turn off. Finally tried this Faucet and Sink Installer Tool and it worked the first time.
There are so many different things it can do, I saved the insert paper in case I need it to install a new drain or faucet. It does a ton more but well worth it.

Ready to use right out of the packaging. Instructions and examples of where and how to use it were fine. Will use it in future and recommend it.

Having installed and un-installed innumerable faucets over the years using a miserable basin wrench, I have no words to express how happy I am with this little gem. It works. It's easy. No more messing about with a basin wrench whose orientation shifts as you fish around in a tight space to try to get it around the connector you want to tighten or loosen... this thing just WORKS!
I've read other reviews of this where the user complains that they couldn't figure out how to get the right size opening to use with different type of connectors, but I had no such problem.
I would definitely recommend this tool. My only negative comment is that I wish it were made of metal instead of plastic... maybe a lightweight aluminum.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Not for use on old rusted nuts.
I bought this today to remove a 23 year old bathroom sink faucet. The idea is good, but the execution of this tool in open-sided plastic is very bad; the tool widens and spins around the stuck nut. I'll go back for a metal tool. Unless your faucet nuts are relatively new and the nuts were possibly hand-tightened, I don't think you'll have good luck with this. I didn't. I'm sure for installing faucets, this probably works great, but you have to get the old one out before you can install the new one!

Does not work on larger nuts and is very brittle. Did not work for me so I returned it.

I purchased this tool primarily for the removal of an old utility sink fixture (40+ years old) which did not allow much room to access the hex nut securing the sprayer head. By using the hex insert on the one end, and using a deep socket/extension on the insert in the other end, I was able to quickly and easily remove the nut holding the sprayer in place. The slot provided in the tool body and insert permit "straddling" the attached hose/piping. If the nut is not part of a fixture with a hose running through it, you can re-index the insert in the plastic body and obtain more rigidity. With out the insert, the castellated end of the body can be used to install/remove "winged" nuts (plastic or metal), while the other insert can be used for basket strainer removal/installation and provides a means of obtaining more "leverage" either by inserting a screwdriver thought the hole provided or, as noted above, using a deep socket over the hex provided. The hex insert can be reversed and used to turn oval handled stop cocks.

A must have tool if you are switching out an existing faucet. I struggled for about 30 minutes trying to get the water lines disconnected. Then remembered seeing this tool while in the store, so I went and bought it. Soon as I got back I had the faucet off within a minute or two. This tool made it so very easy.
