2. ATTENTION WARNING: Do not attempt to push WingTite onto pipe without following ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Damage to the O-ring may cause leaks.

Before you install prepare your drain pipe.
Before and After Drawing

  • Clean scale and grime off the outside of pipe. This insures a smooth surface for the O-ring seal.

  • Inspect the outside of the pipe for any irregularities. Pipe must be smooth!

  • Sand outer top edge of pipe to remove all burrs and sharp edges. This protects the O-ring and allows it to easily slip over the pipe. ✔

3. Before you install measure your drain pipe and shower pan hole.

  • The drain pipe outside diameter must be 2 3/8” 

  • The minimum shower pan hole diameter must be 3 1/4”

Measure your pipe
Locate the O-ring inside WingTite. ✔

Find the O-ring

 

4. The drain pipe height must be between A and B. Make sure the pipe is somewhere between the shower floor and 1/2 inch above the O-ring.

Step 4

10. Apply a generous amount of 100% silicone sealant to underside of drain flange. Coat underside completely.

Step 5

11. Insert drain into shower pan pressing evenly over drain pipe. Hold drain firmly in place against shower floor.

Press drain down evenly 

12. Tighten all four Phillips head screws evenly until drain is secure in pan. BE PATIENT, may take up to 20 turns or more for “wings” to rise up against the bottom of the shower pan and securely tighten.

Step 7

As they tighten, wings rise up

As screws tighten deeper into the tapered surface, they mate creating a watertight seal.

Tightening screws are seated
