Kitchen faucet loose.


Recommended Posts

So my kitchen faucet has become loose.  Has anyone tightened this particular one.  I don’t want to disassemble more than I have to. 
 

Thanks,

John

SAME Here, in fact I was actually working on tightening it up, when I thought I would "Go To The Forum" and find a remedy.  and here i am...

Ours has worked its way loose since delivery/pickup many times.

You have a better picture than I was able to get.  

I believe what we are seeing here is something like a "Delta Mounting Nut", on their single stem kitchen sinks.

Back off the 2 "tightening screws" about one turn, then hand tighten the "mounting nut" (you can see the threads) as tight as you can, then tighten up the 2 screws.

that should put enough tweak on the mounting nut to hold it in place.  on my delta sink at home, it has one tighten screw, so when tightened, it puts a little tweak but just on one side, but that has held for years and is used a hundred times a day...

I am going to work on mine now and see if I can get it tightened up before we leave for "VACA"...

I backed off the tension screws 3-4 rev's and was able to get another 1/4 turn on the mounting nut.  Then re-tightened the 2 tension screws.

the tightening screws appear to grip/anchor into the underside of the countertop, so that may end up being problematic, as it does not appear to have a metal washer between under side of sink counter and the mounting nut.

A large Philips head with a 10-12" shank could possibly make it easier.

One more item checked off before we leave.
