Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Annoyedcustomer Typical Chinese-made junk; terrible instructions
I first purchased this product from Lowe's since it matched the rest of my shower hardware. I knew there would be a good chance of problems since the instructions stated at the top: "... the illustrations may not be typical of your parts..." Really...? The product comes completely assembled, so as you are reading the instructions, which tell you to look for "this and that", and to do "this and that", the pieces are already assembled. I tried to follow the instructions, but the spout was clearly not installed as it should be. I returned it and went to Home Depot which stocked the identical item. I purchased it and used my intuition where to drill into the plastic housing for the set-screw and how to install the item that made sense. It worked!
The product is OK, though a bit overpriced, but the instructions should be written by someone that can actually speak colloquial English.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mmama12 Did not fit flush to the wall
I don't know if it was my lack of skill, or a problem with the product, but I could not get the faucet to go flush to the wall the way the old one did. I had to caulk to seal a gap. It looks nice and performs well, however.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KKDIYER Below average
looks good but does not function properly. Water sprays out of the spout all over the place. Doesn't leak, but does not provide a steady water flow. If you lay on your back, perhaps you could use it as a shower head??

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EMartin Danco spout - worst spout ever
This is absolutely the worst bathtub spout ever made. I've purchased Danco products in the past with little trouble, the issues I've experienced attempting to install this simple slip on bathtub spout has been extremely frustrating. As other several other previous reviewers have stated, the plastic extension tube absolutely will not fit over a standard 1/2 I.D. copper pipe without modifying the plastic extension at the risk of destroying it or sand down about 10% of your copper pipe so the extension will fit. Talk about wasting a ton of time attempting to install this danco junk before ultimately returning it for a Pfister spout that was less than half the price and installed in less than ten minutes... great job there Danco for checking the fitment of your junk before wasting everyone's time!
Do a Google search for Danco bathtub spouts or read the reviews on Amazon, the fitment issue is a known issue that still hasn't been resolved by Danco... Sheesh!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jtvjohn1 GOOD REPLACEMENT PART
Good replacement part. Works well and easy to install. Only issue is that it does not fit flush back to the wall as the old one did. A back plate could solve this. I used caulk, and it looks fine.
