Answer: 
It's not that hard at all. First you have to determine if it is a slide off or a screw on/off spout. Look at the spout close to the base, and if you see a set screw it is a slide off spout. Remove the set screw and carefully pull the spout off. If you don't see one of those then it is a screw on/off spout and you can just twist it off.

Answer: 
Easy. There is a screw (probably allen style) under the spout in a recessed area. Loosen, twist, and pull off.

If you are lucky and there is no mineral deposit build up locking the spout, removal is very easy. Just unscrew (CCW) with the help of a wrench. Frequently, like in my latest case, the spout will not budge even with a big pipe wrench! If this is your case, DO NOT force it further. You will end up twisting the copper nipple coming out of the wall, or other copper tubing behind the wall. At this point, try applying heat with a torch on the area where the spout screws onto the out-coming nipple. Then, try unscrewing the spout again... If this does not work, then the last resort would be to hacksaw the spout at a point about 1 inch from the diverter towards the wall. Of course, at this point you will have to re-build the nipple so you install a new spout...

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The tub spout unscrews from the adapter. How difficult it is to remove will depend on how long it has been in service and how tight it was put on originally.

Answer: 
Hello,
How easy or difficult the spout is to remove will depend on how it was originally connected. In some cases the spout is connected to the copper or galvanized pipe by threads which it can be unscrewed from. Because we're dealing with metal the spout and pipe may be corroded together slightly so be prepared to use a bit of force.

Hello,
How easy or difficult the spout is to remove will depend on how it was originally connected. In some cases the spout is connected to the copper or galvanized pipe by threads which it can be unscrewed from. Because we're dealing with metal the spout and pipe may be corroded together slightly so be prepared to use a bit of force.
The alternative installation would have the spout secured to the pipe with a connection similar to a compression fitting. There will usually be a small screw located under the spout that once unscrewed will allow the spout to be pulled away.
I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

Can't install & instructions refer to a non-existent part

This question is from Universal Diverter Tub Spout in Chrome
Asked by
Illinois

September 30, 2015
I just bought this spout to install on an existing copper pipe nipple. I can't install it correctly.

1# In step e), when I thread the Extension Nipple C onto Adapter A, after a few turns the Adapter just turns when I turn the Extension Nipple. This makes it impossible to align the hole in C with the slot in A. There is no way to stop A from turning when I turn C.

2) The hole in C #for Screw 3) does not go all the way through the plastic. Is it supposed to? How else would I know if the hole in C is aligned with the slot in A? In frustration, I tried assembling the whole thing off the copper nipple and I STILL can't get the screw to break through the plastic on the Extension Nipple C. The plastic at that point is too thick, even though there is an indentation.

3) Step g) says to "...Tighten Extension Nipple C on to Adapter A until it touches Screw G. However, there IS no "Screw G." The only screw in the kit is Screw E.

4) Finally, on the instructions I can't find a contact phone number to call for assistance.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase I was a little bit confused reading the instructions because of the different examples they give you, but at the end I did install it the right way. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as expected The product worked like it should. The diverter did not stick. Previous spouts the diverter would stick on installation. This one did not. The spout is working fine. The finish is exactly what was needed. June 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good directions easy installation The instructions were clear and step by step. They were key in understanding how to remove the original spout. A guide 10 minute job. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! This faucet spout was purchased to replace an existing one in my tub/shower. Great fit and no problems. Home Depot & Dance usually have good replacement parts. Thanks! May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the trick Had to replace an odd ball Delta Spout. This did it. Had to use tape and joint compound to stop leaks. May 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Good Poorly designed. Unable to get a proper seal at the internal adapter fitting with the o-ring. Spend the extra money on a properly designed replacement and save yourself the frustration. April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solved a real problem! Removal of the bad diverted and installation of the new one was a quick and easy process. March 1, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Overpriced for marginal quality and difficult install This diverter spout is the only one they had in the store to fit the type with the set screw on the bottom. Quite overpriced for the quality. The adapter and o-ring are difficult to mount securely and this one lousy o-ring is the only thing stopping water leakage into the wall and wood and drywall damage. I should have read the reviews before taking it out of the package. Especially when I see there are other products on Homedepot.com for half the price of this one in store. Because it is a universal product, there are a lot of odd installation procedures (such as poking a screw through the tube to make a hole), but the instructions are confusing and I ended up having to uninstall and reinstall to figure out just what they were trying to achieve. In the end, it took an hour and I feel like there is a high risk for leaks down the road... and all that for a higher price. January 17, 2016
