Comes with a 3/8" spout fitting. Uses a M10 thread handle.

Many times the thickness of chrome on either the spout or the threads on the portafilter (or both), varies, and getting the spout to thread on may require more than one attempt. If it will not install far enough, a wrench and a very strong twist should position it over. In some extreme cases the only option is to clamp the spout in a bench vice and crank the handle. If it threads on too far PTFE plumbers tape or a gasket may be required.

I ordered two as replacement for Cimbali D1 Jr, with both a single and a double spout. Unfortunately, although the finish is beautiful, it's a solid, original piece, due to their quality control I presume, neither spout will line up. One is of by 3/4 a turn, the other by about 1/4 turn. I've tried everything but a vice, I don't want to scratch the plating, nor break off my handles. I really think they should check the spout/thread alignment after they are dipped in chrome agent. Only solution may be to use plumbers tape but then the spouts arent secured properly and the tape or putty will show. . .
