Installation Guide for Glass Rinser for Kitchen Sink:
STEP 1: Make sure the glass washer works for your sink. Does the installed kitchen sink have holes in it? Does it have a built in soap dispenser? If you answered yes to any of these, glass washer installation will be a breeze. First, make sure the hole in the sink or countertop is far enough away from the faucet so you have room to place your glass over the rinser. Also consider what's around the sink. Window ledges or cabinets can make it difficult to rinse taller glasses. If you don't have an existing hole, you can drill a hole into your existing sink or countertop.
STEP 2: Slide mounting shank (2) through glass rinser base (3) the rubber gasket（4） and steel support washer (5) from above. Lower this assembly through sink from above. Ensure base is aligned with sink and outlet extends into basin prior to fully tightening mounting nut (6). Align the locating features on the actuator arm (1) with those on the nozzle and press actuator arms firmly into place on nozzle, oriented so the arms angle downward from the center. As needed, actuator arms can be removed for cleaning.
STEP 3: Ensure base is aligned with sink and outlet extends into basin prior to fully tightening mounting nut(6), tightening the screw.
STEP 4: Determine whether you wish for your new glass rinser to be supplied by cold or hot water. Unthread existing faucet supply line from angle stop on the chosen side. Tee thread connector provided (8) onto angle stop in place of the supply line that was disconnected in the previous step. Thread both the faucet supply line and the 9/16” end of provided supply line (7) to tee. Thread the 1/2” end of provided supply line to mounting shank (2). Wrench may be used on shank flats to avoid rotation.When supply line is installed, check alignment and retighten mounting nut. Wrench may be used on shank flats to avoid rotation.
STEP 5: Turn on both water supplies at angle stops and check for leaks at all connections made during this installation.If there are no leak, that's finished.
