    Good morning all,
    I am installing a 'low end' Price Pfister kitchen faucet, Model # F-WK1-1. Single Control faucet....Installed just fine, except that there is a plastic hose connector tube, to accept Spray Hose should just be a simple 'push in, and connect' type setup, but I've been trying that as per the Pfister instructions, and I'm getting nowhere? Does anybody know if this could just be a defect to my particular faucet, or is this a known problem with this model? Thanks in advance...

    They sometimes are a little glitchy pushing on. Sometimes you can pull back the fitting a bit, and that helps to open up the end.

    Some of those fittings are similar to what is used on air hoses and natural gas hoses for say a barbeque...the springs may not retract enough to insert it unless you pull the ring back as Terry indicated.

    Try squeezing the two tabs while pushing it onto the faucet stub.
