How to remove a stuck tap handle | stuck faucet handle


Tap handles or faucet handles for my American friends, can often become to the spline shaft on tap head gear or tap cartridges. Removing the tap head can be very difficult as corrosion often makes removing the head very difficult. In this video I use a tap head puller, which I bought from eBay, but they are available here- https://bit.ly/3HyujZw (I’m not on commission). I also use a slide hammer/external bearing puller- https://bit.ly/3l9314q
