oatey shower drain

how tight do i need to tighten my new oatey shower drain? it just slides over a 2" abs tube and comes with a flimsey tool that you tighten with a screwdriver. you can't get it very tight because the tool just bends, but it might be tight enough? i just don't want to find water leaking under the floor. had anyone used these and have any advice?

I will have to assume this is a no-calk drain. Tighten it up untill it's snug. My best advise would be is to check it for leaks. Any plumber worth his/her salt would double check for leaks just in case.


Work is for those who can not fish.
