brasscraft basin wrench


Hello All!
I purchased a T151 brasscraft basin wrench today. There are no directions on how to adjust the head. There's a small hole in the side which I suspect is used to release a pin, but I can't figure it out.

Thanking you in advance.

the head flips over for different directions. Don't take that pin out. Unless you use the tool quite a bit, you will need some time to get it right. You most likely will be lying on your back under the sink looking up. turn to the left to loosen, to right to tighten. It will seem everything is in your way but you can work around it.

Basin wrenches can be a real lifesaver when working on SOME sinks....
I have a basin wrench "head" that snaps on any 3/8" extension and ratchet wrench. Po)
It's come in handy more than once, that's for sure.

It's easy to get turned around and forget which way is lefty loosy and righty tighty when you're laying on your back under a sink with a tool that doesn't look like anything else in your arsenal. The easiest way to tell which way it should be flipped is by simply grabbing your finger with the tool and give it a little twist before maneuvering through a maze of pipe and supply lines

Excellent point! Things don't look the same when you're under the sink, do they? Thanks again.
