2. Sloan Flushometer Offset Adapter
This Offset Adapter is made by Sloan for select Sloan flush valves. It is needed most often when upgrading a manual flushometer to a sensor unit because making that change can sometimes position the flush valve too close to the grab bar. This can affect ADA compliance, and obstruct access to the override button. The adapter lowers the total height of the flushometer by 1-1/2 inches. This creates enough space for an ADA-compliant grab bar without having to relocate the water supply inlet pipe. The Offset Adapter is designed for use with G2, SOLIS®, and ECOS® flushometers.

3. Sinchnut Faucet Lock Nuts
The Sinchnut is a simple and easy-to-use alternative to brass faucet shank nuts. It enables you to more quickly complete faucet installations. Unlike traditional faucet lock nuts, which are usually made of one solid piece of brass, Sinchnuts are made of 2 plastic pieces that are hinged, so you can open and close them over the faucet shank after the supply lines have been inserted into the holes of the sink. Sold in quantities of two.
