Does that work on the inside brass comression ring, or is that for the bottom nut? Im assuming that tool is for this kind of drain:

It is for the brass compression ring, you use 1/2" wrench or socket to help tighten it down, works every time.

I had one just like that 30 years ago, made by Casper, for Casper no-caulk drains. I lost it about 10 years ago and found the one made by Oatey just about a year ago.

For the years I didn't have the right tool I made my own by notching a piece of 2" plastic pipe to fit the grooves in the drain.

Great tool. Lost too many of the flat screwdriver tools, that come with the drains, in the trap.

A smart guy would put a rag in the pipe before trying to tighten the drain with that stupid flat tool :whistling2:

Some times things come to me slowly. Once was enough, three or four time was ridiculous.

Glad I found the Oatey tool.:thumbup:
