<< I need to extend it forward so I can use them easier. >>
A while back I had to do some kitchen sink faucet work and there was so much
junk under the sink that I went for real convenience and simply moved the
shutoff valves to the basement. Not only that, I used stop and waste types to
minimize the dribbles for future repairs. It won't work in every case, but
saved me some later hassles.
