I purchased a home with a loose kitchen faucet, and the faucet is unmarked, so I don't know the maker. I cannot get any tool in the underside to tighten. Needle nose - not enough room to turn. Crescent wrench - too big. All I can do it finger tighten and then wait for a few days for it to get loose again. Any help would be appreciated.

Most times there is enough room to get a regular wrench in there - you can only get a partial turn but eventually it will get tight.
Otherwise, that 'duck bill' clamp an be removed, the black braided hose removed and the nut tightened with a deep socket. There are also plumbing specific wrenches available that can fit up in there.
