Tool recommendation needed for this job.

I need a tool for removing and tightening this hose to the faucet stem. The problem is that the space is VERY tight and narrow. I couldn't get a wrench in there at all. So, if there isn't a tool for this, how do I remove/tighten it? Thank you.

It's possible that those connections were made before the sink was set in place. That's why you are having trouble.

You may need a small open end wrench.



Small sawzall would probably work too... assuming replacement is the goal.

I would enjoy plumbing so much more if there weren't so many small, uncomfortable, and spider-web-filled locations.

Zorfdt, I already tried with that tool.

Donta_, I believed they must have installed that before they put the sink in. I had to cut the hold faucet out; however, now I need to replace it and I need a tool or someway to remove the existing and put in a new one.

Will something like this work?

I have tried this Crescent adjustable wrench and it's still too big.

Looks like the Superior ToolŪ - Basin Buddy Universal Basin Wrench Socket has potential. I may try this one too.
