How to Install a Kitchen Faucet Hose Extender

These extenders come with a male threaded adapter on the bottom and 15/16-27 on the top. Additional adapters are available for free. The hose extender can hook up to the faucet easily and quickly. Moreover, the non-kinking hose will allow you to wash your hands at a distance of 5 feet.

Adjust the nozzle's length

The hose will continue to draw water from the source even after turning the faucet's 'off' position. If you wish to use the hose extender on more than one sink, you can adjust the nozzle's length in the bottom of the adapter to meet the requirements of both faucets.

Follow the instructions

You can install the hose extension by following the instructions above. You must hold the end of the hose steady and tighten the nut with the other wrench. This step is not complicated. The connection to the faucet is completed in a matter of minutes. If you are not confident enough, you can try applying Teflon tape over the threaded area of the faucet and ensure a leak-proof connection. Once you have installed the hose extender, you can now turn on the water and test your connections. Congratulations!

Turn off the water supply
