Questions & Answers


Will this work on the main nut that holds the one handle faucet to counter?

Asked by Ted March 27, 2021

Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but looks like it should go the trick. Reason why I bought one.

What does "1-1/4 in. hex for stubborn installations" mean?

Asked by Ray January 14, 2021

It is meant for the removal of that size nut in hard to reach areas (under a sink for example).

Can this handle 1/2 and 3/8 nuts/fittings?

Asked by Jay December 5, 2020

Yes, I’ve used each adapter/fitting on multiple projects.

can you use the square end to remove cleanout caps?

Asked by plumbingNoobie September 14, 2020

I would not think so as it's only 3/4 inch.

Will this work on my pfister kitchen faucet?

Asked by Jon September 14, 2020

Well...there are lots of variables. For example: is there enough space between your sink and the wall for this tool and your hand to fit? Occasionally there is NOT enough room and you have to use a traditional basin wrench. For example: depending on the model, your Pfister faucet may have the modern "standard" faucet-fastening nuts (which this tool is usually great with), or a much larger nut or much smaller nut that this tool is not designed to handle. (Note: VERY unusual to run across a non-standard nut. I'd wager about 2 in 100 are non-standard, usually on faucets > 40 years old.) Again: the traditional basin wrench is the alternative. AS a plumber I estimate that this tool works on probably 19 out of 20 sinks and it makes the work MUCH easier AND faster than using a basin wrench.

Does this work as a Moen Basin wrench?

Asked by Bobav4 June 18, 2020

This item isn't Brand specific. It's used on any faucet to help tighten and un-tighten a faucet from underneath the counter top.

Will this tool work on a single handle kitchen faucet?

Asked by Shopper May 22, 2020

Worked very will on my single lever kitchen faucet. Would definitely recommend.

Does it have a bath socket wrench

Asked by Lenie April 24, 2020


Will it work on a Delta plastic nut

Asked by Jason March 16, 2020

yes. I loosened the plastic nut easily with it.

Will this work on pex fittings

Trying to get kitchen sink drain off and broke in half. One bonus is the metal did not break like most people had happen, but the plastic broke. Can’t get my money back so will hesitate in buying Rigid hand tools.

Broke on first use
I bought this tool last night to remove my tub drain... Seemed like a very handy tool until it broke the first time i used it... Didnt even last 3 minutes... Very disappointed in the qaulity of tools these day. The metal on this tool is obviously very cheap pot metal... Also now the pieces that broke off are now stuck in the drain... 3 of the 4 metal tabs broke

many tools in one
This tool is awesome! It takes the place of many tools and costs alot less then buying all of them. I was working in a tight space, and i don’t have much hand strength, but this tool made it eazy for me to replace my bathroom faucet.

Could Be Better
Pros: It worked reasonably well for my faucet installation. It is definitely a smart concept as the most frustrating part of doing this job is accessing the flanges and such for removal and installation. This made my reach quite a bit longer. Cons: and this kept it from a five star rating. At over $20, it is overpriced. Also, the metal components, are definitely not steel, and appear to be easily breakable if over-stressed. Might be worth $20 if made of better quality materials.

This swiss army knifeesque tool worked real well for my needs. I was doing a reno job, and had to remove one vanity sink, and install it to a new base and install a new sink to a new base. This allowed me to disconnect and reconnect the faucets, water supply lines (from the sink and the water valve) and turn the water valve off and on with ease. This definitely made my job a lot easier.

This faucet tool is as good as they come. Very sturdy material and easy to use. More importantly would be the versatility features it provides. One wrench for multiple jobs.

A Home Depot associate recommended this tool when I was visiting a friend in Nashville in early March. I did not have any of my tools and I was going to replace her kitchen faucet. He pulled this out and said "use this". I was doubtful, but purchased it anyway. When I was under her sink trying to remove the old faucet, she did not have any tools that I could use. (She basically had some generic pliers and a couple of screwdrivers.) Looking at the packaging that came with it, I realized that I could use this tool to remove the 5/8" bolt on the water lines. I was shocked and amazed at all the different ways that I can use this tool. I replaced her faucet, but brought the tool home with me. Since then, I have replaced my master bath faucet and fixed a leak in another sink. I love it, this is my Swiss Army knife of faucet tools. It is so much better than another long-handled wrench that I had for faucets. That old tool is going to a rummage sale. Excellent multi-use function in a single tool, thanks Ridgid. TIP - Remember to keep the cardboard backing which shows where all of the options are.

Straightforward tool although it was unusable with the red handle as it is too big to fit with the hoses under the sink. Ended up taking off the handle and just using the nut provision. I wish I could return it but my receipt and package has been demolished by our kids.

Not practical use for faucet change out
Was having trouble reaching the nut under the sink faucet so I tried the Ridgid Ez faucet tool but I found it difficult to get to the nut due to all the hoses. Once I got all the hoses in the middle of the tool, with such a tight space I could not get the leverage I needed to turn the nut.
