Hand tightend to 5 oclock and that's it. Need to
get it to 6. Can't put a pipe wrench on it don't
want to mark it up. Is there something made for
this or a trick using a pipe wrench and leather
or something else?
I didn't have tools with me last night but another poster mentioned to
shove something up the inside of the end pointing down. I have a 3/8
sockey extension that will probably fit but thanks for your input.
All it takes is a rag in the jaws to avoid marking it -- although I
certainly have seen a lot of jobs where obviously either channel-lock
pliers or a pipe wrench were used directly -- mostly in commercial
installations where one would presume the work was a "pro"...
Salvage some strip on rubber inner-tube 1 X 12 inch or so. Wrap around
and pipe wrench it up, or channel lock pliers. Save to strip in the
plumbing bag for later use.

This may be too tight for that. I think I need to take the shower head off
and turn it by hand the rest of the way. I didn't want to break the
plastic head off last night, it's one of those big sunflower looking
things. If it won't turn I'll shove my 3/8" extension in it and that
should do the trick. If it were mine not my girl's it would have got
wrenched. I need to replace mine in the basement shower as my son broke it
off this morning adjusting it. It had to be week because it broke off
inside the adapter sweated on the 1/2" riser pipe. He had to take his
shower with just the stream out of the adapter :)
