That's the thing,it just sits in the waste, there's nothing physically holding it in.
Surely it won't hold water ?

Push the brass bit with the o rings down as far as it will go into the waste, the chrome bit is extendable if you push on it (the clicker) the screw underneath is to adjust the seal on the chrome bit to your basin waste.

Are you saying it's just held in position by suction from the seal of the 2 black o-rings ?
It goes into the waste very easily,doesn't require any force

Oh right.Does it work ?
I'll have to try it,make sure it holds water before I carry on installing the bath.
Cheers

As I suspected it doesn't seal 100% so water is going to empty as it fills,not exactly ideal.
Can anyone recommend a different/better one ?
