Answer: 
It should work provided you have clearance around the nut. In some cases it can get very tight and you're better off using a deep socket if you can find one that fits.

Answer: 
I would absolutely give the RIGID brand basin wrench a try. I've had a few situations where this is the only wrench that had a chance of working. The other option might be a shower valve wrench kit which is very helpful in some situations.

Answer: 
Hi Art, yes this is the tool for this job. However this basin wrench opens to a maximum of 1.25 inches (1 1/4), RIDGID does make a larger head for this wrench if needed. You will have to go on line to purchase.
If you are planning on keeping the faucet, you will have to wrestle a little with the nut, or buy a larger head if the nut is bigger than 1 1/4 in diameter.

If you're not keeping the faucet, you can use a 3/8 inch drill bit made for steel and drill the nut. You will want to drill in the direction of the faucet not the counter top. Then you take a slotted head screw driver, and slide it up between the nut and the faucet shaft, and pop it, by a sharp twist of the screw driver handle. Hope this was what you were after. Read Less

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome tool I am a plumber and use this tool every day I finally had to replace my old one after 15years of use . I only buy Rigid hand tools great products !!! October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product for the job I was having trouble with installing a faucet on my kitchen sink. Access was nearly impossible. I have used these types of wrenches before but the quality of this tool made the project very easy. June 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great professional wrench Use this to remove lug nuts from a truck when the owner loses the anti-theft adaptor. This and a 24" wrench backing it up is unstoppable as long as you have clearance to get a good bite. It also is indispensable for installing and removing faucets, opening and closing corporation cocks (water line main shutoff valves) and any valve that is in a pit that can be reached. October 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gave it away. Seemed OK. I gave it to a plumber in exchange for free installation of my kitchen faucet. April 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The BEST basin wrench for pedestal sinks and more I was trying to install nuts to fasten the faucets in place on a pedestal sink and could not tighten them no matter what I did. To add to my frustration, the pedestal sink was siliconed and fastened to the wall so removal of the sink wasn't something I wanted to do. I had been using a generic basin wrench from Home Depot which I have had pretty good luck with - however, it did not work in this situation. I reluctantly purchased the RIGID wrench considering the much higher price but saw that the wrench part was different and I was really out of options. Wow! This wrench made the impossible possible. It gives so much more clearance than other wrenches and also grips nuts more tightly. The telescoping feature is also a nice touch. I did a couple more faucet installations and am thrilled with this purchase. Yes, it is much more expensive than generics; however, I gave this tool 5 stars for value since there is no other tool that can match its performance and save so much time and frustration. Highly recommended! August 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Tool If you have to work in a tight area under a sink, this is the perfect tool. Very well made, does the job, and made in the US. Perfect all the way around. August 6, 2013
