This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in June of 2019. If you need to install a sink in the bathroom this weekend, forget about using those old channel-locks and grab one of these basin wrenches instead. They clamp onto nuts and bolts securely and don't require a lot of clearance in order to turn, allowing you to navigate the tight spaces under your fixtures. They're so easy to use, you may just decide to remodel the kitchen while you're at it. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 24, 2019:

The Ridgid 46753 is in a class by itself to a certain extent, as it has several more features than its competition. This makes it easy and comfortable to use, but also drives the price up a little bit. We'd certainly recommend it for pros, but if you only plan on using the wrench a few times, you may prefer to save the extra money.

If you already own more tools than you can store properly, the Superior Tool 03825 will give you the ability to work on sinks without adding too much bulk to your toolbox. It's extremely compact, as it only contains the "essential" part of the wrench. You do need to supply your own ratchet, but we assumed that anyone looking at a tool as specialized as a basin wrench would likely have several ratchets lying around already.

The Ridgid EZ Change and Vorida Basic are outliers on this list to a certain extent. They don't have the traditional basin wrench construction, but they still fulfill the same purpose. Made of thick plastic, they're just as durable as the other models shown here, but they extend in a straight line instead of utilizing a perpendicular T-bar. This makes it easier to work in tight spaces, but at the cost of a little bit of torque.
