    Remove the Old Faucet  

The first thing to do is to shut off the supply of water to the old faucet. You can then remove the old faucet completely and clear the area.  The next thing to do is to install the new faucet output. In the countertop, put the spout through the center hole. 

From the underneath sink, put the spacer flange and nut onto the tailpiece of the spout. To secure the spout, you can then tighten the mounting nut using channel type pliers. Before completely tightening, ensure that you straighten and center the spout to the desired position. 

    Install the Faucet Valve 

In the countertop, push the valve up from under the sink into the two outer holes. You will see an O ring in the shaft of the spout that will seal the valve against the spout. Thread the nut that holds together the valve body and shaft once the valve is pushed all the way up into its proper position. 

Using pliers, socket wrench, or wrench, tighten the nut and make sure that both hot and cold sides are straight in the center part of the sink holes before it is completely tightened. Your handles may end up slightly out of place if they are not quite centered. 

    Install the Trim 

Install the trim. The plastic gaskets must be installed first from the top of the sink then the chrome escutcheon. To hold it in place and seal the faucet, tighten the plastic nut over the escutcheon. Do this in both hot and cold sites of your faucet. 

    Install Faucet Handles 

Now you will be able to install the handles of your faucet. By slipping them over the valve stems, install both the hot and cold handles. You will then need to push it all the way down. Using the Allen Key that comes with the faucet kit, you can then tighten them up. 

In order to access the Allen key slot, you may need to turn the valve to the on position. If you want any repair in the future, the same procedure goes. To give the faucet a sleeker look, the Allen key is designed to be out of sight. 

    Connect the Water Supply Tubes 

To both hot and cold sides of the faucet, hook up the water supply tubes under the sink using channel type pliers to shut off the valves. When installing a new faucet, it is always better to change the supply tubes unless they are already fairly new.
