Basin Spanner

Position the Basin Wrench Head

Pivot the head of the basin wrench so it is perpendicular to the shaft and faces the correct position for loosening or tightening the nut:

  • To loosen the nut, you will turn the wrench counterclockwise, and the opening of the claw on the head should be on the right (as shown in the left photo here).
  • To tighten the nut, you will turn the wrench clockwise, and the opening of the claw should be at the left (as shown in the right photo here).

SKU: N/A Category:

Kitchen and bathroom sink faucets typically are secured with low-profile mounting nuts that are accessible only on the underside of the sink, behind the basin. Standard wrenches and pliers are almost useless in this situation

A basin wrench has a pivoting gripping head that sits at the end of a long handle, and it is designed to reach up into that awkward, inaccessible space behind a sink to tighten or loosen the mounting nuts on a faucet or the flexible supply tube nuts that connect to the end of the faucet tailpieces. These nuts are so difficult to reach that some plumbers prefer to attach the faucet to the sink or countertop before setting the sink or countertop into place. Where this isn’t possible, though, the basin wrench lets you reach up behind the sink from underneath, grip the mounting nuts, and tighten or loosen them easily.

The tool has a long shaft and a small, spring-loaded, claw head that tightens onto the nut as you turn the shaft. The head swiveled 180 degrees in either direction to set it up for loosening or tightening nuts. At the bottom end of the shaft is a sliding T-bar that provides leverage for turning the shaft.
