Question about Plumbing
The tap is dripping from the spout but there is no cover or anything that would hide a screw. This is a cartridge type tap. It has been suggested that the headgear itself unscrews but I put quite a bit of pressure on it and there was no movement and I don't want to break it! Anyone know how to do this?

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
You want to know if there any way to tighten a faucet on a kitchen sink?
Yes! All faucets have to be secure, but there are as many diferent methods as there are diferent manufacturers. If you are unfamiliar with the diferent methods then you might not recognize the screw, nut, bolt or fitting when you look at it. Also, for many, a special tool is required. It might be wise to have someone local look at it.

ouch sadly im sure it was pricy to have him out so my suggestion would be to call him back and have him take off the price of what he charged you or have him fix it for no charge could be just need some plumbers putty around the faucet to stop a little water that may seep threw under the faucet good luck

Turn the water off. The water control knob is located under your sink and is connected to the drain. Turn it counterclockwise to turn off the water.
Open the faucet to relieve any differences in pressure. Pull up on the faucet as you would if you were turning it on.
Plug the drain of the sink with its stopper to prevent any parts from going down it.
Turn the faucet handle sharply to one side to reveal a small cover plate. Pry the plate off carefully with a flat-bladed screwdriver.
Unscrew the screw that is located behind the cover plate with a 4 mm allen key.
Lift the handle off and remove the cap beneath it.
Firmly grip the exposed cartridge with your hands and pull up to remove it.
