New Basket Strainer in Place - but now a new problem
Thanks to everyone (especially E) for helping with my detached sink drain. As you can see the new one is almost installed.
The problem now, is that the old nut has bad threads and will not attach to base of the newly installed basket. Fortunately, a new nut, which fits perfectly, came with the basket strainer. However, I do not know how I am supposed to get the new nut onto the tailpipe in place of the old nut! At the very top of the tailpipe is a plastic ridge that seems too large to get the metal nuts past. Should I just force the metal nuts over the ridge, or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance!
