New taps: remember to undo the headgear nut

Memo to self:
When you buy some new taps, undo the headgear nut and then reassemble before fitting the tap.

My sink monobloc tap is dripping. A 10 minute job to change the washers, I thought. But I can't shift the headgear nut for the life of me.

I'm going to have to disassemble some pipework and remove the whole tap. But first, I will need to buy a monobloc backnut spanner.

I'll know next time!
