  • Slide a drain fitting over drain tube/bolt assembly until it rests against the flanged end
  • Slide drain tube/ bolt assembly into the drain hole
  • Slide the O-ring and remaining fitting over drain tube end and insert the fitted flange fixture
  • Place brass washer and then steel washer over the bolt
  • Attach flanging nut and firmly tighten nut onto bolt until a proper flange is bent into the drain tube. Note: Do not over-tighten, this will cause drain tube to split.
  • Remove flanging tool and fixtures once flanging is complete
  • Complete your installation with a Moeller Snap-Tite, Turn-Tite or Trail-n-Bail drain plug
