How to Install a Garbage Disposer with the Plumber's Third Hand

  1. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the sink strainer in the sink. Place the garbage disposer in the cabinet directly beneath the sink strainer opening. Place the manufacturer’s supplied parts on top of the disposer in this order: snap ring, triangular flange with screws, base plate and fiber gasket.
  2. Tilt the foot of the installation tool and insert it through the sink strainer and into the opening of the disposer then pull up so that the tool’s foot is level and secure inside the disposer. In the sink lift the tool handle raising the disposer a couple of inches. Spin the wing nut clockwise down into the strainer opening.

Install the snap ring and tighten the triangular flange screws firmly against the base plate.
  3. Lift the handle again until the disposer meets the strainer. Spin the wing nut down to hold the disposer in position DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. From below use both hands to turn the disposer counter clockwise to tighten into the lugs of the sink strainer.
