Whether you’re a first-timer just learning how to install a faucet, or a seasoned installation professional who’s done it dozens of times, features that make the faucet easier to install are always appreciated. Matco-Norca recently announced the introduction of a new faucet family — Leverage — that features quick connect installation nuts on all two-handle faucets and single-handle kitchen pulldown faucets. The unique installation nuts are designed to smoothly slide over the shanks until they contact the surface, which engages the threads. 

Leverage widespread, kitchen with side sprays, pull down and pullout faucets come with a knuckle-saving quick connect system that is designed to save the plumbing professional time, frustration and the chance of a leak point. All lavatory models incorporate push pop-ups which eliminates the timely and often frustrating installation of a conventional pop-up.

The quick-connect installation nut installs in seconds. Before tightening, simply place the Quick Mount nut onto the shank underneath the deck plate, then push it all the way up and twist it until tight.

Leverage faucets are EPA Water Sense certified and listed with the California Energy Commission. All are factory tested and come with a limited lifetime finish and function warranty regardless of the application.

Single-handle ceramic valve kitchen faucets are available in single- or three-hole mount, and two- or four-hole mount, with the deck plate, copper inlet supply and ceramic cartridge included. They offer flows of up to 1.5 gpm and are available in chrome or stainless steel. Lavatory faucets are available in single- or two-handle selections, with a 4-inch center set, integrated supply lines, a 50/50 Push Pop-Up, ceramic cartridges, and Quick Mount installation. They offer flows of up to 1.2 gpm and are available in chrome and brushed nickel.

All Leverage tub and shower trim packs include metal slip-on tub spouts, metal ball joints and can be paired with Matco-Norca’s existing 799 pressure balancing rough-in valves, with and without stops. They come with a metal slip-on tub spout, and all mounting hardware. They offer flows of up to 1.8 gpm and come in chrome and brushed nickel. Replacement universal rough-in valves, cartridges and extensions kits are also available. 800-431-2082;
