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.

hi you 1st need to isolate both hot & cold water supplies to bath.lift the lever up & underneath the lever you will see s screw unscrew it & be careful not let it go down the plug hole, so a good idea at this point is to put in the plug!!!
Once the screw is loosened you will be able to remove the lever.
then there is a cover which will need to be undone & removed seeing as its gold you will have to be careful undoing this as it may be stiff, sometimes a few taps with the endle of a srewdriver handle will loosen it enough so you can remove it. once this is removed you will gain access to the hexagonal part of the cartridge, so yo uwill need to have the appropriate spanner or adjustable spanner. you will need to hold against the tap when undoing it so as the whole tap body doesnt move.once the cartridge is removed the new unit can be fitted in reverse order.it sounds simple but being Gold you have to be careful you dont damage it whilst attempting to remove the old one. Tip put some silicone gtrease around the o rings on the new unit as it will make it easier to remove if you ever have to remove it again?
