My Tap Handle Isn’t Straight

Tap handle faucet parts

Ever wonder how we install the threads to make the tap handles all face the correct orientation. The answer is that we don’t need to. When installing there is a nut on the facet that allows the person installing the tap handle to face the correct orientation. Simply thread the tap handle on to the faucet a few turns so it’s facing the right way. Then rotate the lock nut to tighten to the bottom of the tap handle. Never over tighten the tap handle as this can cause damage or cause the tap handle threads to seize on the faucet.

Step 1: Screw the tap handle onto the faucet facing the correct orientation
Step 2: Tighten the lock nut to the tap handle
