No; but they make a thing called a basin wrench which is not expensive that makes it fairly easy to tighten for the bottom.

Kitchen faucet is loose and leaves a stream of water. Handle is very loose.


On base of handle where it attaches to top of faucet, there is an access hole. It may be open or have a plug in it. If it has plug in it it just pops out with a little screwdriver. Under hole is either a allen head set screw or philips head. Loosen set screw then handle lifts upward. Try to tighten base of faucet if it is tight, you probably need faucet rebuild kit. Just make note of manufacturer. When at Home Depot,Lowes or other hardware or plumbing store compare price of kit to price of new faucet. Your decision which is less money or grief for you to buy or do.

How do I fix my kitchen sink faucet?


he steps to replace a faucet are easy and nearly always the same. Here's how it works:
  • Shut off the water supply to the faucet. Usually, there are shut off cocks near the faucet but if not, you may have to shut the water off near your main line.
  • Remove the water feed lines from the faucet. You may wish to tag the hot water line "hot left" to take the guess work out of reconnecting.
  • Remove the faucet hold down washers or spin nuts. These washers are under the counter top. They spin onto two studs that you will see by looking behind the sink from below the faucet. The stud and washer configurations come in different styles and types but they all do the same work of holding the faucet in place. Your job is to get them loosened up so you can remove the old faucet. The distance between those studs is your "center distance" as mentioned earlier.
  • Once you have the faucet loose, it will be much easier to remove a sprayer line if there is one attached.
  • Clean the area once the faucet is removed.
  • Put the new, plastic faucet base plate in position.
  • If there is a sprayer, replace the base for it (included in the kit) and feed the new line down through the sprayer base and back up through the center hole where the faucet will mount. Attach that line to the new faucet.
  • Insert and firmly yet gently tighten the mounting studs into the bottom of the faucet base if they're not already.
  • Insert the faucet into the appropriate location on your sink and install the faucet hold down washers or spin nuts.
  • Reattach your water lines. Begin by lightly cleaning all threads with a soft cloth and then apply Teflon plumber's tape to the male threads of your connections Be careful not to cross thread anything when putting the connections together.
  • Reestablish water pressure and check for leaks. It always helps to have a spotter / helper for this step.
A new kitchen faucet always gives me a special DIY feeling because a new faucet looks good, operates easier and can even save a little water by providing quick, positive shut off. Take your time and survey the entire job before you start. With a little time and patience, you too can have a bright new faucet in your home kitchen.

Facuet is loose on counter top how can I tighten


under the sink where faucet is unless lot of clearance use channel lock [adjustable pliers] or if like 99% only enough room for a couple of fingers you will need a basin wrench most hardware/home improvement stores carry it usually under $15 or ask around to borrow one that will get u up to faucet hold down nuts
