How to install bulkhead

I found a video about installing a bulkhead on a 275 tote where the guy used a pole to get the insde part of the bulkhead in place. Does anyone have any better suggestions?

You just need to thread it?
Squid used 2 socket wrenchs with the socket heads pointed outwards and a wedge in between to give it enough tension to thread together. I havent taken the valve off a tote, so i dont know what it looks like there.
If you just need to get the bulkhead down to the inside to even begin to thread nut on, a broomstick or string/ wire works too.

Nut should go on the outside of the tank. Much easier to tighten this way.


You don’t need a socket. Stiff wire to slide it down and into the hole, nut goes on outside, reverse threads


It works.

I use a old brake line
