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 install a sink stopper. Now a sink stopper consists of the stopper, a lift rod and mechanism. So for our demonstration I'm gonna install it outside of the cabinet but very often you'd have to replace this in the cabinet. I'm only gonna show you this as a way of demonstrating what has to be done and in our case it's a plastic popup. It can come in metal or plastic. We're gonna loosen the top of the popup or on the outer perimeter here we're gonna install plumbing putty. Install, push down, insert the opposite end through the back and then tighten the retention nut on the popup stopper. Just snug, you don't want to overtighten it but you want to make sure it creates a waterproof seal. You're gonna remove the retention nut on the popup drain, insert the lever through the retention nut and then reinstall the rod through the popup drain and tighten the tension nut. You're gonna insert our popup drain. We face that tab towards the faucet whereas that rod is connected to the popup drain. We're gonna insert the rod through the lever, the back of the faucet. Insert the rod into the extender, I'm gonna pick the second hole from the bottom. First our retention clips gets installed, then the extension, and then the other end of the retention clip to hold into position. I've tested the operation of our lever to make sure that the operation is smooth and I'm gonna tighten. And this was a sink stopper installation. 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, helping you build a better life. Reach out to me at Facebook at The Home Source Guy and we'll see you next time.
