I understand kitchen faucet to kitchen sink compatibility by a simple 1, 2, 3. If I have one hole, I need to get a one-hole kitchen faucet—two for two, and three for three.
As the image above shows, I'm replacing a kitchen faucet that connects through just one hole (of, I assume, a standard diameter).
When installing such a one-hole kitchen faucet, what stops it from rotating around that one hole? It's clear that with 2 or 3 holes the faucet will not spin. Is it merely the case that I need to tighten really hard to make sure a one-hole faucet will not turn during usage?
In case it matters, the faucet has a single handle and a pull-out sprayer.
