How to install a gooseneck tap?

16264282324955880221942256531061.jpg

Anyone know how to install a gooseneck tap/spout into a wall mount? I understand you screw it in, but no room to rotate entire spout as benchtop in the way? Any tricks? Thanks

Photo up now, if you could please help? Thanks. So we screwed it in, thought tight however it feels very loose again. Hoping there's a way to take off the spout or something to allow us to rotate it

Re: How to install a gooseneck tap?

Hello @dou0001

 

Thank you for sharing your question about your gooseneck spout.

 

My apologies for the late reply. If you look closely at the gooseneck assembly you will find where the spout meets the elbow joint there is a small hole at the back. Inside this hole is a little grub screw that holds the top part of the spout joined to the elbow. You need to remove the grub screw with a Trojan 8 Piece Metric Hex Key Set.

 

Once the grub screw is out make sure to place it in a safe place. Hold on to the elbow and with the other hand hold on to the spout and pull apart. You should be able to remove and separate the two parts. Once disassembled you can now screw the elbow into the wall with no issues. Please make sure to use FIX-A-TAP 12mm x 8m Thread Seal Tape to make sure you have a good seal. 

 

Before the elbow gets very tight at the end and is very near the wall, make sure that it is pointing up in the correct direction. Slide the spout back into position and carefully put the grub screw back in. Make sure to test the set and that there are no leaks.

 

If you need more advice or information, please let us know.

 

Eric
