Replacing Flex Coupler (Anti-Vibration Tailpipe Mount)
I'm confused about removal of old torn anti-vibration tailpipe mount and installing the new one I just received. Do I need a really wide screwdriver and a lot of torque to unscrew the single top screw on the old one? It won't budge. Is that the only connection? And when replacing, how do these create a watertight seal against the Evolution disposal hole since it's just a metal plate? (The spring clamp for connecting to the down pipe does make sense to me though.)
Hi, this is Jerica from InSinkErator® Customer Service. When replacing an Evolution disposer’s flex coupler, no special tools are required only a properly sized flat head or Philips screw driver. Once you have the replacement part, all you need to do is remove the old flex coupler by taking off the bolt/screw. The replacement flex coupler will just slip into the same slot and is held in place by the lower tab and the bolt/screw at the top. In case you’ll still have difficulties replacing your disposer’s flex coupler, please do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call InSinkErator AnswerLine at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.
