8.1. Apply polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tape on all drain threads and screw in the body of the plug.
8.2. Put bathroom and kitchen sealant under the upper ceiling washer (chrome ornament).
8.3. With one hand, apply the upper ceiling washer (on which sealant has already been applied) on the drain hole, and by sliding the other hand under the lavatory basin, insert the body of the plug (equipped with its clamping ring and sealing joints) in the hole.
8.4. Screw the clamping ring under the basin. Don’t force; you could damage the lavatory porcelain. The body of the plug is equipped with a hole for the pivot baguette to pass through, which will make the plug rise and fall. Make sure the hole is correctly aligned with the baguette before tightening the clamping ring.
8.5. Insert the plug in the hole by aligning the notch of its plastic rod with the lateral hole of the body.
8.6. Insert the pivot’s horizontal baguette in the hole. If necessary, turn the plug until the baguette inserts itself in the notch of the plastic rod.
8.7. Hand-tighten the nut securing the baguette.
8.8. Put the mechanical plug in the “open” position; the horizontal baguette should then point downward.
8.9. Insert the vertical rod in the hole behind the faucet.
8.10. Join that rod to the perforated extension rod.
8.11. Identify the hole on the rod closest to the end of the horizontal baguette (pointing downwards).
8.12. Insert the baguette in this hole, then lock it with the locking lever.
8.13. Pull the rod to close the plug, and check the adjustment.
