Answer: 
I used this with a Moen faucet. I don't see where it matters, the nuts that hold the faucet and water lines in place are pretty universal. This tool gives you access to quite a variety of nut sizes.

It didn't work on my Delta faucet, so if others have had issues with Moen or American Standards, I think it's safe to say this is NOT a universal tool.

This tool worked fine on my Moen faucet and removed my Pfister faucet. It can be used several different ways. Both sides of the plastic part and the metal inserts can be flipped. I found that the tool worked on the Moen best without metal inserts.

Answer: 
The alternative suggested by Ridgid above does not apply at all., The purpose of this tool is to control nuts where there is not room for the wrench to swing. In that situation the too Ridgid suggests is totally useless.

Answer: 
The faucet and sink installer only goes up to 1" hex nuts. You may want to consider the offset Hex Wrench (cat #31305). Its capacity is 1 1/8" - 2 5/8". The extra wide opening is ideal for securing drain nuts on sinks and tubs.

I used it on something similar to this (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Homewerks-Worldwide-3-8-in-OD-x-1-2-in-IPS-x-12-in-Faucet-Supply-Line-Braided-Stainless-Steel-7223-12-38-2/203082011?N=5yc1vZbqkiZ1z0xvao). In general, it would work, but the supply line has to be straight to fit inside the device, and mine was too curved (12" tube on 8" distance). So I returned mine for a standard basin wrench.

I think that the one stars reviews are valid with respect to the over-all strength of this. The plastic composition should be a clue. And now to take a stab at your question. If one of the openings will fit the compression nut, it should be fine. Personally, like to use a plain wrench so I have idea of the level of torque that I am applying. There are times when the right tool for the job is the one that you have your hands on. ( I have two basin wrenches. I likes these better, altho there are times when I need to use the basin wrench to break something loose.) Read Less

No this tool will NOT work on the supply line compression fitting side as it is intended for the opposite side where it is usually difficult to normally access. Suggestion is to use a "flare open ended" wrench which will NOT distort and possibly round out the compression ring nut. In a emergency you can use the normal "open end" wrench however you must work slowly/carefully being sure not to round off Read More

We did not have a special for this product scheduled for the show so a contractor could have had his own. If the faucet and sink installer was red it was most likely was Ridgid but there are a few companies who also use red on their products. Yes we do have the same product that is used for that apllication also.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 182 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked when nothing else could. 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. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked as described 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. CS March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joy! 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. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good in Theory Only Does not work on larger nuts and is very brittle. Did not work for me so I returned it. June 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Real Time (and Knuckle) Saver 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. December 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A wonder tool 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. May 3, 2016
