Hi this is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York and this is how to properly install a sink drain in a stainless steel sink. So although this is a double sink, we're already got an existing strainer but I'm going to install the second strainer. We're going to take some plumber's putty, roll it and place it on the perimeter of the strainer. Now I'm going to take our strainer and insert it inside the sink. I'm going to take a rubber gasket, insert the rubber gasket and our paper gasket. Now the paper gasket acts as almost a lubricant so that as you are applying pressure to the lock nut, the rubber isn't rotating with it. So it's very crucial to have that paper in there. I've got this, I picked up this great strainer wrench. You can get these at any home supply store. You can also use channel locks around the perimeter but this wrench you can see is easily made for this particular application, it's not expensive either. I'm holding on to the strainer so it's not rotating at the same time that I'm tightening it, you might get some rotation but you notice the putty oozing out. You also want to make sure that the strainer is centered inside the actual hole. And that was how to properly install a sink drain in a stainless steel sink.
