Brian :

The Tube is a threaded stem a nut screws up the stem and clamps the tap tight. you will need a box spanner or a long socket. unfortunately I don't know the size of the nut on this model. Usually between 8 and 12 mm. this will do the job http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Hand+Tools/Plumbers+Tools/Mono+Tap+Back+Nut+Box+Spanner+4+Piece/d10/sd210/p16973
