Stretch the rubber gasket over the raised lip of the flexible discharge tube with the flat side of the rubber gasket facing out. Make sure the raised lip sits inside the groove on the inside of the rubber gasket.

Secure the flexible discharge tube to the garbage disposal's discharge opening (rubber gasket in discharge opening) using the single bolt flange.

2. Connecting Flexible Discharge Tube to disposal with Two Bolt Flange:

Force two bolt flange over the raised lip on the flexible discharge tube.

Stretch the rubber gasket over the raised lip of the flexible discharge tube with the flat side of the rubber gasket facing out. Make sure the raised lip sits inside the groove on the inside of the rubber gasket.

Secure the flexible discharge tube to the garbage disposal's discharge opening (rubber gasket in discharge opening) using the two bolt flange.
