Story Behind the Invention

Inventor Steve Giehl of Grove City, OH has created a new tool to efficiently tighten or loosen the nuts which secure the rods to a water closet carrier faceplate.

As a member of a plumbers and pipefitter union for over twenty years and a 4th generation, Steve knows how important every aspect of the job is from underground, to rough-in, to setting fixtures. Often the person setting fixtures is not the same person who performed the rough-in. Things can get damaged or require adjustment to get the fixture set properly. At the finish portion of the job, access to whatever is behind the wall is usually very limited. Steve just knew there had to be a better way to accomplish the task in an efficient manner. In turn, he developed the Water Closet Carrier Rod Socket!

Now rods can easily be removed when it comes time to resolve a plumbing issue in the carrier. With this tool, a user can simply slide the socket over the rods until it bottoms out against the faceplate. The ability to do this so quickly and easily, especially in the case of a remodel or maintenance issue, will be extremely valuable. Every part of the carrier can be assembled or disassembled behind the wall and removed through the existing opening, eliminating the need to open the wall and then repair it afterward. This tool, along with attachments, will allow a quality installation during any phase of a job as well as where access is limited including service and remodel applications.

A socket attachment will tighten or loosen the bolts for the faceplate and the carrier legs. It can also be used to tighten the anchors which secure the carrier to the floor. Other attachments include a 3" coupling wrench and a 4" coupling wrench. All three will attach directly to a 1/2" drive ratchet, or they can be inserted into the carrier rod socket.
