Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bluenile0516 Not what I expected to be........
I bought this item because on the advertising and reviews said Mansfield replacement was good however it doesn't fit very well to my Mansfield toilet handle well. if I tighten up too tight which supposed to tight, it (handle) will not push down and if I left too lose, the toilet handle doesn't fit well to toilet bowl wall. by the way, the toilet handle bar is too long so I had to cutting down to size. Not happy with results so I'm going to return the other two.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheMonk Look at "Frustrated Review" Good Advice
See the comment from "frustrated", perfect advice. Cut the handle end bar to fit, and gently heat over a gas flame to bend into the correct position. I then ran the part under cold water to harden again. A little work but as good as new. Thanks to "frustrated" because it saved me from getting frustrated. I don't think I would have thought of heating the plastic and bending it to fit!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MomOf3 Does not fit Mansfield 160
I saw this in the store labeled as "for Mansfield" and thought great just what I need. However, it is not a good fit for my Mansfield 160. First, the arm was too long, so I had to cut it down to fit. Second, the arm has an angle that interferes with function in my tank. I find the handle stays depressed after flushing, so I have to manually lift it or the water keeps running. I also had to bend the plastic arm (with much effort) so that the lever returned to a position that allowed the valve/flapper to shut. It will work as a temporary bandaid until I get the right lever. It seems sturdy and well made, but the wrong fit for my model of Mansfield. I wish the box would have labeled which Mansfield models it was compatible with.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Doesn't fit Mansfield Model #160
I purchased this product after reading the comments and knowing that it would take a little work to make it fit. I melted the arm and bent it back like it needs to be for this model toilet. I cut off the excess plastic of the arm as well as it comes way to long to fit. Once I did that I was able to get it to fit into the housing the of flush valve, but it's still not angled enough to use. The plastic is too "flat" and angle and when you flush it doesn't allow the plunger to go down enough to seal. I suppose I will have to try to melt it again and try to bend it down now too. All of this heating of a cheap plastic is not giving me confidence that this will last very long. Save yourself all of the extra work and headache and don't get this if you have a Model #160 from Mansfield.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DetroitDIYer Does Not Fit All Mansfield Toilet Valves
This lever is not compatible with all Mansfield valves. I wish that I had read the reviews here before purchasing. This particular unit has too much of an angle on the lever. It will fit after being cut down to size, but the extreme angle causes the lever to pull tightly against the valve. This makes the valve itself stick in the open postition, instead of falling into the closed position. I now have to pull up on the valve to stop the water from flowing into the bowl. It is made of plastic, but should not be a problem, as the original lever that I am replacing was plastic and lasted well over ten years. Just as the other reviewer states, I am going to try to bend this one into place as a temporary fix until I can get the correct lever. This lever only fits Model 41 Toilet Tanks. I do not know what model I have, but I now know that it is not a Model 41. (I uploaded a photo to show the difference in the lever's angle.)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dddm Fits Mansfield 35 tank
I had to use the old nut since the new one could not be tightened due to the width of tank wall. But the lever itself fit Mansfield 35 tank perfectly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gonnafixitmyself Lasted less than a month
Had 3 Mansfield toilets in the house -- builder's special I guess. This lever looks nothing like the original. In fact, to get it to work I had to take a hacksaw to it to shorten the lenght of the arm.
It took a lot more effort to get the lever to go down. After a couple of weeks the gasket started to loosen regularly and I'd have to tighten it every couple of days. Finally the plastic lever got so twisted it would stop working.
It may seem like the price is right but it's not worth the aggravation.
