So I wrongly thought I could screw off the sprayer head on mine that is broken and screw on this new "universal" Danco Kitchen Spray head. But it is not just the head, it is a head that screws onto a base. It wants you to unscrew the head, remove a small metal clip, slide the base off, slide the new base on, replace the clip and replace the head, not losing sight of the myriad washers. Unfortunately this new head comes with a severe plastic water restricter inside that is not removable, and trust me I enthusiastically tried. Although the outside of this new Danco head looks identical to my old sprayer head, the insides are different.
Once I did get the old base off, put on the new one, and replaced the clip, which is a pain in the rear, there was not enough room for both provided washers (1 plastic 1 metal) and when reassembled it leaked and shot water in all directions. I have minimal plumbing experience so be aware that my experience with this product may simply reflect my own ineptness.

GOOD SPRAY HEAD
I had no problem switching out the new spray head. It screwed on just fine. But when I was reading reviews for this I seen complaints that it wasn't giving enough pressure so I tried it out and it was ok. I then took it off and using a Dremel tool I opened up THE INNER RUBBER GASKET and made the hole a little bigger thus letting more water in and giving more pressure. It now works better than the old one.

Works, But Not Very Well
By Matt Towns
This would have been a good replacement, save for two reason. One: The water pressure is so low that it is almost useless, much lower than the original (which broke). Two: I figured I could just unscrew the top potion of this sprayer, and screw it onto the bottom portion of the old sprayer. Not so. Although this sprayer looks IDENTICAL to the one that broke, the components inside are not the same. I had to remove the entire old sprayer from the hose, which involved un-clipping a very frustrating washer (block the drains in your sink prior to doing this), retaining a rubber gasket from the old sprayer, and putting the entire new sprayer assembly back on the hose. Not that difficult, but it took some trial and error to figure out which combination of washers and gaskets to use to get this thing to work (I use the word work loosely). Anyway, try to find another option before buying this as a replacement.
