Unfortunately these chrome hole covers do not even come close to meeting the quality of the Dishmaster faucet. Very disappointing. I ordered 2 and with very little torque the stud pulled out of the bottom of the cover. These look like they were just acquired from Home Depot. Also unfortunate a white hole cover wasn’t available. I ended up going to Lowes and purchased 2 white hole covers that actually worked and look a lot better.
The hole cover should be pressed down to seat it on the sink/countertop. It should not be torqued down with the wing nut.
