Garbage Disposal switch

I removed the pipes below and removed the old basket strainer. Most times the large nut will be stuck and the whole basket strainer will spin. In this case the best thing to do is split the big nut using a Drumell tool or other tool and remove the nut, then it will come out easy. The basket strainer in the image to the left has 3 long screws instead of the large nut, but if you have the large nut you know what I am talking about.
