Question about Belle Foret BF-NBBS2-CP Junior Basket Strainer by BFNBBS2CP BFNBBS2-60
Just bought a stainless steel sink baskets. How do I install it?
The stainless steel basin had a pair of big holes in the bottom, suitable for attaching strainer baskets or a garbage disposal. The basket comes with a black rubber gasket that seals underneath the basin, a thick paper washer, and a die-cast metal lock nut to clamp the basket onto the basin. There is also a smaller lock nut that connects the sink tail-piece (the first part of the drain system) to the basket. You should apply a bead of clear silicone to the rim of the opening. Also apply a small bead of silicone to the underside of the edge of the basket. olding the basket by the center, set it in the hole and gave it a slight turn to spread the silicone slightly. Down Under: apply a thin layer of pipe thread compound (a.k.a. pipe dope) to the larger diameter threads. Few plumbers use thread compound here, but I believe in lubricating threads whenever possible. There have been so many times that I needed to remove a basin lock nut, but was unable to because of the slight corrosion that inevitably forms there. Thread compound would prevent this problem. The metal lock nut, the rubber gasket and the paper washer were installed, turning by hand most of the way. The only practical way to tighten these huge lock nuts is to use a pair of 18" jumbo Channel-Lock pliers. To hold the basket from turning, use a pair of screwdrivers placed in an X-formation in the little holes. The lock nut must not be over-tightened, or the rubber gasket can be squeezed out of place, which could cause a leak.
