Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AlanNOVA Cheap Plastic garbage
It looks pretty, and I'm sure it can be installed easily, but it is so poorly constructed and engineered that there is no point to actually install it. For instance it comes with a gasket around the outer edge, but the plastic cover only holds it to the wall at 16 points, water is sure to infiltrate all around it causing mold to grow and your wall behind to rot out. Poor design!!

The Product was not universal as advertized. It would not fit an old Moen installation. I was able to purchase one that fit at a local plumbing store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Allie Terrible quality & a waste of my money!
I purchased this kit to replace the Moen plastic handle because I like the lever and I've had NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS. The handle is always loose. I tighten it, use the shower & the handle is loose again. I am SO disappointed. I am not purchasing Danco products anymore. I've seen nothing but bad reviews (after the fact). I've learned my lesson! What a waste of money! I'm now having to replace the two kits I've bought with Moen ones.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TennisBum Great product at a great price
Excellent product at a very reasonable price. However, the original trim kit installed flush against the shower tile. This replacement has a circular lip that did not fit in the (very small) tile opening. I had to enlarge the opening using a hammer and chisel. However, I feel that the installed product will be better at preventing leaks into the wall than its predecessor.

Using this on a "Type A" counter-clockwise-turn assembly, with the metal handle. The handle feels solid, doesn't wiggle if you properly position the hex screw through the hole in the handle adapter. Mine doesn't fall to 6:00 as some reviewers have reported (maybe they were trying this with a "Type B" push/pull assembly). The brushed nickel finish on the handle has a decent quality look/feel. The round back plate is plastic but it matches the handle and I think it's passable. The temperature-regulator is easy to adjust and I set mine to max out at the temperature I want by holding an oven thermometer in the water flow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marie Going on 3 yrs with this trim.
Still looks fabulous after 3 yrs. I have the polished chrome version and both the handle and escutcheon still look sparkling new. By now I would have gone through 4 plastic, cheap looking knobs that get hazy after a month. The handle does wobble a little but has not gotten worse over the years and it still works great! I'll take a little wobble over an ugly plastic knob any day! I'm so glad HD still sells it because it's the only metal handle that replaces the pull knobs without having to do major plumbing to change out the valve. I'm going out to get the brushed nickel version today.

This product is not the best on the market, but unfortunately Danco is the only company that makes individual parts to replace shower handles. This product is very flimsy and does not stay tight. Once it is installed and the screws are nice and tight, the first time you turn the handle towards the hot water and then turn off the shower, the handle becomes loose. You have to remove the handle again and tighten the adaptor behind the shower handle. Next time you turn on the shower, the handle comes loose again. It seems that this handle just does not want to stay tight. I hate having to tighten the adaptor screw for the handle each time I take a shower!!!
