The spout is junk---so get your tin snips and remove the shirt and get that screw out----do not be tempted to pull that off with the screw set to the pipe---you will score the pipe---making it difficult or impossible to get a tight seal===

I always go to the plumbing supply house for a Moen push on spout---the ones I've found at the home stores are a waste of time and money---
