It has a tapered pipe thread, so needs either pipe dope or tape. SOme prefer one, some the other, and some use both. It's important since a tapered pipe thread is NOT waterproof without one or the other, regardless of how tight you get it.

The size of the drain's outer diameter is big enough so that you should be able to tighten it sufficiently without any tools.

Their toll-free support line has some good people that can help and make sure you get the right choice for your situation.
