I have a TRINITY Stainless Steel Utility Sink that came with a faucet like this one: https://trinityii.com/stainless-steel-utility-sink-nsf-with-faucet/

I need to remove the aerator so I can hook up a portable dishwasher adaptor. I tried to find a key online that would fit but can't seem to find one that has the same hole pattern. I sent a message to Trinity but have gotten no response yet. Anyone know what key and where I could purchase it?

I tried to remove it by sticking a couple of nails up into it and twisting counterclockwise... it gave a little but seems to just possibly be spinning and not advancing outward. Any advice?

  • the aerator is not necessarily removable

  • That just seems completely bonkers... that an aerator would not be removable. :/

  • What happens when it gets full of crud? Just toss the whole faucet?

  • yes, it would be crazy, but not unheard of

  • You said you tried a couple of nails...just by themselves? I would drive a few nails through a thin piece of wood—try to match the aerator pattern—and use the wood as a knob.

1 Answer 1


According to the manufacturer's video collection, there is a tiny seam at the "tip" of the faucet where the whole tip should unscrew from the outside.

They also refer to a "free app" that might or might not have more info. I didn't try that yet but could have some potential.

  • Well I'll be dab nabbed. That seam was totally invisible. Thanks so much!!!
