Will this tool turn metal nuts?

Can I use this tool to reach up and turn the metal nut (shown in picture I took) to turn the metal nut holding my bathroom sink faucet in place?

Pasco 7000 is the new nutbuster for zinc and brass nuts. Great tool, but only for the destruction of brass and zinc nuts.

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

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.

I just got to my computer and looked at the pictures. They are great. I guess my soon to be obsolete/extinct Galaxy S4 is totally to blame. After seeing these pictures, I am totally with the pull the GD suggestion. Sometimes, you can get the blade of an oscillating tool on the nuts. (Sonicrafter by Rockwell; Ridgid JobMax; Fein BigBucks- to name a few.) I mainly wanted to let you know that the pics were great. Good luck with this. You will likely wind up in the Desctructo Mode.

Faucet and Sink Installer Tool is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 446.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Led to a broken basin nut Tool worked great to disconnect the water lines as well as one basin nut but when I went to remove the other basin nut, I'm not sure if it had been tightened too much in the past or it was adhered with some corrosion but because the tool was a little bigger than the nut prongs, as I was twisting to unlock, I broke the prongs off and had to use locking pliers. It was not completely the tools fault but being I had to twist hard and the fact that it was a little loose on the prongs, it led to them being broken off which is why I gave 3 stars. Otherwise, the tool had worked nicely for the other nut and water lines. Never had any issues with my other Ridgid products though. They're great!

With this tool, I was able to remove and install the new faucet, I was also able to loosen and tighten the water lines with just one tool. I live in North Texas and the hard water wears out faucets and hot water heaters about every 4 to 6 years. This tool has already paid for it self in just the first use. Its an all in one tool and I recommend it to the most basic do-it your self, to the professional plumper. I'm very happy with my purchase and I'm going to get good use out of this tool for years to come.

This is billed as an installer tool and I was trying to remove my bathroom faucet so I can't be too critical. I can see where it could be a useful tool in many situations, but it would not grip the large plastic lock nut under the bathroom faucet. It was configured so as to fit the 1-3/4" lock nut just fine, but continually slipped off when torqued. I returned it to Home Depot with no problem (thanks, HD!) and bought the Husky 2 inch Universal Faucet Nut Wrench, which did the trick in one minute. I would recommend this Ridgid tool for installations (not removals) because of its versatility.

I only have good use of one arm, and this tool helped me install new lavatory faucet much easier than the "old " way using a basin wrench and/or wrenches which almost never fit in the space behind the sink. Job is bad enough just getting in the space under the sink in the vanity (or kitchen cabinet). This tool makes it much easier for anyone to do the job. My son helped me with another job recently and when I saw him use his to replace the bathtub drain, I knew I'd have to have one for myself. Highly recommend for anyone, with the basic skills to replace a faucet.

But on a sink it does not handle the flexibility of the hose. While it does turn it does not allow for sufficient torque to properly seat the connection.

It may be satisfactory for a kitchen sink faucet, but it was totally useless for a bathroom faucet installation. The tight quarters (drain line, pop up lever) made getting any kind of a good grip impossible. Working with metal supply lines is problematic. The basin tab nut removal feature didn't work- it kept slipping off the tabs. I can't rate this tool's other features because I didn't use them. I think it may be best used when replacing a sink- the faucet and supply lines could be installed before placing the sink, so you could get a better grip on this tool and have sufficient room. If your trying to replace an existing faucet, I recommend the Husky Universal Faucet Nut Wrench- it did the job exactly as advertised.

This was exactly what I needed for the plastic lock nuts that hold the faucet to the sink from underneath. I tried pliers, drilling, and took over an hour with sore fingertips trying to get them to even budge. With this tool it was dang near effortless... my only regret was not starting out with it. It is built to last and will come in handy a lot. It seems to be very versatile although i haven't needed it for any other fittings yet. It was worth it just for the stuck lock nuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $20.00 I ever spent! I'm an novice at plumbing. you tube and the great people at homedepot have helped immensely. When he showed me this tool I was in heaven. No more lying on my back looking through trifocal glasses, trying to get my wrench up under the sink to get a grip so I could loosen and when finished tighten everything up. It was the best $20.00 i have ever spent. I am now replacing all my old leaky faucets. This made it so easy.
