Portable dishwater Vs faucet aerator

Hi! I recently bought a portable dishwasher (Danby), and am trying to remove the aerator from the kitchen sink's faucet, in order to install the adaptor.

The problem is that I cannot unscrew the aerator because its ring is loose.

Looking at it from the bottom, I see two holes diametrically opposed, so I'm wondering if this aerator isn't actually screwed on the faucet, but perhaps just attached to it - though I haven't seen any video for that so far...

Does anybody have any idea of how to remove this aerator?

Welcome to the forums! It may help us if you would post a picture of the aerator. We can't see what you see. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

Like Larry said, a picture would help. The faucet might be identifiable. Check for any labels on the water supply lines also.
You probably need something like this, a vandal proof aerator wrench:
