    All three hoses for my kitchen faucet go into and connect in the main body of the faucet. There are no 6 - 12" inch extension pipes from the faucet head that are typical.

    I'm having great difficulty tightening he middle nut that that connects the side spray as there is no room to get a wrench or other tool in there.

    Can anyone suggest a method to tighten this nut?

    Can you post a picture 800 pixels max as an attachment so we can see what you're working with?
    Or the model of the faucet so that we can look up the instructions for that model.

    What's the make & model # of the faucet? Most of the center spray/pull-out hoses these days do not have nuts to tighten, they
    are push-on fittings sealed with o-ring(s) and held in place with some sort of clip.

    That said, it's usually best, if possible, to attach the flex hoses to the faucet before mounting it.
