Identify Shower Valve/Stem
 
2 Attachment(s)
I'm about to lose my mind. I've been to lowes, home depot, menards, ace and am unable to simply find a knob that will fit easily on this valve stem. Can anyone identify what type it is? The original builder told me to buy a danco for mixit handle. This was only available at ace hardware, which i picked up today and wasnt even close.
The threads on this stem and wider base on the end of the stem wont fit any handles I've tried, this strange tip also makes it impossible to even use a generic vice grip handle as it wont rest and tighten comfortably.

Any ideas? The original knob had some type of adapter in it looked like a socket. When looking for this to replace my spare bathroom, I left the knob and adapter in my cart while at lowes...now I'm really up the creek!

Looks like Delta to me.

well i attempted to put on the mixit handles again....i tightened them way beyond my comfort zones as i started to hear plastic cracking, but now it's holding on the stem and turning on and off.....fingers crossed.
