Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BW1 Great solution to update shower mixing valve style without having to tear into wall.
We wanted to update our shower valve trim since we were retiling the shower. This kit had alot of different pieces to allow it to fit many different configurations. We found the one that worked, put it on and have loved it ever since. Saved a lot of time and money not having to replace entire shower mixing valve assembly!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FixerJ DO NOT BUY!
This is so cheaply made. Do not waste your money on this product. It's plastic and the parts are not even equivalent to the older metal replacement parts! I am switching from brass to chrome and this (I thought) was going to be perfect for our shower. The kit was missing a screw, I had double of another screw and one part of the shaft was the wrong size by a few milimeters. The faceplate does not sit flush up against the shower wall - leaving about a 1/3" gap between the wall and the plate. Seriously, do not buy this cheap product...especially not for the $$

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Returning it
Not the easy replacement advertised. After 2 hrs and having to drill holes so they match I'm returning it. Definitely doesn't replace the original Moen parts. I'm just gonna work with the old ones and put them back. No comparison. The original are heavy steel and chrome, this you could snap in half with your bare hands. Could understand if 10 bucks but 40?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Annoyed Made the same mistake as everyone else!
Listen to the other reviews people, they are correct. Bought this because I wanted a nice metal handle. Try all you want, you cannot get it tight enough to use without wobbling. So okay, I'll use the plastic knob instead. Nope! I have a genuine MOEN 1222 cartridge, and the handle in this kit will not fit it. The center shaft is circular and the MOEN cartridge has straight sides. So back to Home Depot to buy the genuine MOEN plastic knob, which installed correctly in 10 seconds. This was a *complete* waste of money. Only use this if you have a Danco cartridge, and even then if you don't mind throwing half the kit away, because you will. Agree with the other reviewer who wonders why HD even sells this brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sonia554 don't bother
This is the second Danco product I've purchased and the second Danco product I've returned. The center inset is deeper than the rim, so it doesn't sit flush against the wall. Don't bother with this product unless you're prepared to put a bigger hole into your shower wall to accommodate the inset. The center inset is also removable and kept popping out as I was working with it, as did the gasket, which is not secured to the rim. This is not a true replacement part, just a cheap imitation that requires a substantial amount of effort and aggravation to use. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by andreski too generic
All but one part was usable and it's all plastic.
I returned and bought the specific moen parts.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Runker good for parts
The plate is plastic and in two parts and would have required me to remove tiles and to get it to fit flush to the tiled wall. I will use many of the parts in the kit to do the job but the plate will be bought separately.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wgs67 Metal handle is loose!
The main reason I bought this was for the nicer looking metal handle. Better than the cheap-looking plastic one. After putting the metal handle on, it is impossible to completely tighten the little screw with the provided Allen wrench, so the handle is just wobbly. I heard someone else say they used silicone to fix this, but that doesn't seem like it will last long. It should work without that.
Also, because the back of the faceplate protrudes out in the center, I had to cut the bathroom tile around the opening to get the whole face plate to sink in flush with the wall. Took a long time. After doing all that, I find out about the loose the metal handle. Really, really bad product! Taking it back after I figure out how to get everything back into the packaging.
