To determine if a left or right bend is needed: When facing the wall, if the drain in the wall is on the left of the sink drain tailpiece, you will need a left bend arm. If the drain in the wall is on the right of the sink drain tailpiece, you will need a right bend arm. Also: if the offset is more or less than the offset of the Freedom Arm try rotating the J-bend left or right to fine tune the offset.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "What does tubular mean?"
A.It is a thinner walled pipe most commonly used under sinks to attach sink drains to the house drain. It allows the use of slip joint adjustable connections by being light weight yet durable, also it's easier to install compared to direct hard line connections.
Q. "What does "PVD" polished brass mean?"
A."PVD" stands for "Physical Vapor Deposition", which is a modern plating process used in faucet manufacturing. Vaporized zirconium reacts with nitrogen and other gases to form a VERY durable plated surface. Unlike polished brass finishes in the past that would easily tarnish over time, polished brass finishes with PVD are extremely durable and won't generally tarnish or discolor.
Q. "Are the brass and antique finishes as durable as chrome?"
A.No, we like to recommend only chrome finishes as they will not tarnish with proper care.
Q. "Why are s-traps not code and why do you offer them?"
A. S-traps were one method of mechanical trap that were used around the turn of the century in instances where plumbing came up through the floor. They were disallowed due to the strong potential of siphonage, which breaks the trap seal and allows sewer gasses to enter the home. A few rare municipalities still occasionally allow s-traps to be "grandfathered in" if the installation meets certain criteria. However, this is certainly not the case in all areas and we strongly recommend that you check with your local code to confirm.
