These comercial kitchen sink mounted faucets always seem to be loose and flopping around, decided to try some shower lock 90's today.
Worked like a charm nice an tight, only thing i found was the escushions dont sit flush to the sink cause of the lock 90.
What have you guys done with these?

I like these flanges sink ell fittings with a close nipple nipple in faucet and through sink hole and then the sink ell nice and tight up against the backside of the sink It seems to work good. It's been a while since I did one and last time I used a big washer or 2 on the backside to make it work.

That’s how I do it. You then stand a chance of changing the faucet without removing the sink.

One thing to keep in mind- some sinks don’t have a deep enough backsplash to squeeze all that back there.

We use/stack large galv. Steel washers as spacers between the s.s. Splash and the brass fitting. Even a close nipple usually needs one or two

and a drop of silicone between each washer helps keep it all together and from shifting when they bang big pots into the faucet..

You could also use a 1/2" romex nut or cut the end off of a coupling.
