Delta Monitior 14 Series Shower Handle falling off
I installed the Delta T14299-BL shower trim and installed it with the valve that was the correct match. Last step...should be the easiest....installing the shower handle with the little set screw. Problem though...the set screw contacts the valve shaft at the very end, which causes the screw to slip off of the end and the handle to come off. I have tightened it pretty well, but I am worried that doing so is just making the problem worse by disfiguring the valve shaft.
I have checked to ensure that the sleeve is fully pressed against the valve, it is. This is not an issue with the hardware not being pressed into place far enough. Are there any tips to getting a Delta shower handle set screw to hold the handle in place? The design of this handle seems terrible. The set screw is designed to make contact at an angle and at a bottom end of the valve shaft. This is a heavy shower handle, and it has barely any connection.
Btw...the Delta instructions might be the worst instructions I have ever seen to anything in my life.
