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.

Universal Diverter Tub Spout in Chrome is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst connection design ever- more water out the sides than out the spout The instructions were all over the place and it is very difficult to screw the 2 plastic pieces together and make sure that a blind hole lines up. The spout leaked on all three attempts. Friend is a plumber and he put on a much simpler set up which cost only $5 more. The design is flawed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Product I had this product installed per instructions by a professional plumber. During first use, it leaked into wall causing significant damage to my finished basement. Home Depot should not sell it. You should not buy it.

I needed 4 of these but just bought one to try it out. I was able to install these just fine. One thing instructions doesn't mention is that we need to drill a whole into inner spout holder to fasten the ring and screw. Also, do not twist while installing this otherwise washer will get damaged. I recommend buying a silicone grease as its just easier to install it with the grease.

The plastic internal portion would not screw into the spout itself despite some very forceful attempts. Don't believe all these reviews? Look at all the packaging for this product at the store, they're all taped shut because everyone (including me) have returned it out of frustration. Home Depot should not be selling this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confusing at best I have just finished a bathroom remodel and after replacing a 2 bowel sink, faucets, mirror, lights and putting in a tile floor....I was undone by the tub spout. Very confusing installation process. It's going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product To tight the screw you need a Philips screwdriver and it is a bit difficult on such tight space. A bolt would have been more appropriate.
