Bevel washers are used mainly for faucet seats that are damaged or wore beyond stem travel, therefore the thicker washer makes up the difference. The bevel washers attempts to seal the water flow from the interior opening of the seat, rather than the flat raised edges of the seat. The beveled side should touch the water jug on both inside and out. The bolt on each side fits into the washer and forces it into the rim of the opening. The bevel side goes inside towards the bolt.
