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.

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.

Can't remove the 2"D X 2"D center basin hex nut/coulpler

Asked by
Boca Raton, FL

August 7, 2016
I am having the MOST difficult time removing the center basin nut to replace my kitchen faucet. I have zero remove to maneuver due to existing disposal and only 5.5" from the back of sink to back of cabinet.(see pictures) The HD plumbing salesman said this product wouldn't work, but all I needed was a basin wrench. I got one, but it didn't work at all. The nut was too large for the basin wrench whether I take the disposal out or not. Will this tool work, or can you suggest a specific tool I can use. I am trying to avoid calling a costly plumber. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for all of your answers. I found a Large Jaw Basin Wrench online that I couldn't find at any store or even plumbing supply house in my area.I got it off in 3 minutes. That tool is a killer cool. I'm glad I looked around. A plumber we old have chared me a arm and a leg to pull the disposal and replace the new faucet. I love when my novice DIY persistence pays off#

1. Return the wrench and get a refund.

3. When I can't get a faucet out, I use a 4 1/2" grinder and cut the existing faucet into pieces. It eventually falls thru.

Answer: 
Yup. I've been there. Two options, neither much fun. You can either use a SawzAll to cut the top of the faucet off or pull the sink out of the counter to give you more room to work. I've done it both ways. Usually, if the sink is over 10 years old, it's a corroded mess below and cutting the top of the faucet off is the fastest and easiest thing to do.

After I used the saw to cut it off (maybe 45 seconds), I could have kicked myself for wasting a couple hours fiddling with it. HD had the SawzAll (model 6519) on sale. Incredibly useful tool. Thought I'd rather get the saw than just toss the money at the plumber. I bought that orange tool and it's really only good for new installations. Found it almost useless on my old sinks. (And the plastic 'gives' too much anyway and the nut slips inside it.) The SawzAll will make quick work of your faucet, just hold it steady and don't let the blade hit the wall behind it. (Get a fine-tooth metal cutting blade.) You want to replace the faucet, not the wall. Good luck! Read Less

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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 196 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just What any Tool Box Needs.What a Great Low Cost Item I was skeptical but soon left that thought when I began to use this universal tool. The inventor must be really proud or at least should be. The only thing I wish were different is the handle. I would like to have a hard cast aluminum handle that would be even sturdier but this one seems to have tightened the hoses and connections very well. The handle takes quite a bit of torque and I cranked on it quite a bit. I would imagine anyone torquing enough to break the handle would actually be using to much force necessary for the connections anyway because faucet connections aren't suppose to be extremely tight when using the proper fittings. Note: don't be the cheapskate to use the tool for your install then return it for a refund because this tool will do most all faucet and drain basket installs when there's adequate room for it to fit and it doesn't really take much room to use. Overall, this tool design is Brilliant. I may only need to use it a few times but I will be very happy to know it's here and ready. August 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works for me. I purchased this because under the sink space is so small that replacing faucet is always difficult. Well, with this tool I was able to remove the water supply lines with just one hand ( the lines and nuts are not corroded). Very easy. However, it seems that this will not work on the nut for the water filter faucet. August 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't fit... didn't fit a new Kholer faucet and the one I took off my sink. What type of cheapo faucets is this thing supposed to fit? The guy working at the store admitted to me that he had never installed a faucet in his life, but assured me that this tool was better than anything else. I had another tool, which would have worked (and was cheaper), but put it back due to the salesman's pitch. Very disappointed. August 16, 2016
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 Great tool A great multi purpose tool for the price. Saves time and effort on both install and removal of faucet nuts and supply lines. The long design increases reach and requires less leverage for use. August 17, 2016
