Default Any way to get the plastic nut on the stem of the disposal button?

Without relocating the sink mounting bracket?

I think your going to have to move it but I could be wrong. I'm sure on of the pros will be by later and prove me wrong.

What is it drilled in to? I hope I can access the top of the screw. I'll have to take a closer look tomorrow.

No chance of moving that stud over a little?
Would a lock ring from a 1-1/2" EMT box connector work?
