Taps Questions & Answers

I have indoor vandal proof taps and the handle is stuck on to the spindle. How do I remove the anti vandal nut?

Vandal proof taps require a special type of spanner to undo the nut at the base of the handle. Try the FIX-A-TAP Vandal Proof Indoor Tap Spanner and Nuts Set.  If you still have problems, try using some form of lubricating oil such as WD40, or consult your local plumber who will be able to remove it for you. If you don’t have a plumber, we recommend you use our PlumbConnect Plumbers Registry to search for one in your local area.
