Tightening the Base
The faucet is all hooked up and it is working perfectly.
The only problem is that the base is loose and is turning back and forth.
What is the best way to tighten this without having to disconnect everything?
This faucet is anchored by the EZ anchor, the black plastic mount that was installed first. You might be able to tighten that mount without having to disconnect everything. Basically, you'll need to pull off the spout to expose the faucet, then lay the spout off to the side. Next, with a crescent wrench, loosen the brass assembly and lift it off the EZ anchor. Next, you'll see two anchor screws, these will need to be re-tightened. The directions say to use a cordless screwdriver, which I did.
These steps should enable you to re-tighten the base without having to disconnect everything.
