Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Good water deverter from tub to hand held shower
I liked this one better because the shower hose connection is closer to the end where the water comes out. This makes it easier to hook up the shower hose. Some tub spouts have the hose connection near the tub end which can make it harder to hook up the shower hose especialy if you also connect a water shut off valve too. if you do install the shut off valve, then you can have all the water go to the shower head coming off the wall to have more water pressure there but then if you want water to come from the hand held shower, you just open the valve. Also I like the hose hook up at the tub spout instead of at the shower wall so you have more use able hose length to shower off your private area between your legs better.

The instructions for this spout were very poor. If I wasn't an engineer I probably wouldn't have been able to install it. The instructions told me to align one of the pieces with a hole in the nipple, however THERE WAS NO HOLE! Rather than trecking back to HD, I just drilled a hole in it myself, Then trying to tighten the set screw was also difficult since it was close to the wall and the top of the tub. A allen-type cap screw would have made it much easier. I finally got it installed and it seems to work...for now. Pay the extra bucks and get a good one, however I needed one ASAP and HD only had this one.

I would prefer the handheld shower hose fitting to be on the top of the spout instead of underneath to better accommodate the hose and handheld shower attachment.

I didn't even know this product existed until I was lucky enough to meet Lou at the Home Depot in West Des Moines (? University Ave). My elderly uncle was no longer able to deal with the stairs that were required to get to his bathroom that had a shower. His same-floor bathroom had only a tub spigot, no shower. I came to Home Depot looking for one of those cheap/nasty rubber shower hoses that fit over a tub spigot, so my uncle could more or less shower in his tub. When I explained to Lou what I was looking for, he showed this unit to me. It's exactly what we needed - it has a normal tub spigot, then diverts to a ferrule when the tab is pulled up. It took less than 5 minutes to install - just unscrewed the old spigot & screwed on this new one. We added a nice screw-on hand-held shower unit to the ferrule & life was good. No muss, no fuss, no leaks. Note that we were fortunate in that the original spigot, which had been on that tub for 50 years or more, came right off. And that there was no issue with the tile or drywall behind that spigot. We were also VERY fortunate to have run into Lou at Home Depot. Without him, we would never have known that this item exists. Thanks, Lou!

A little difficult to install, but it was because of our fixture

It's a simple universal design which was very easy to install. I rent an apt. and the spout we had was old and finally gave out. Before finding this one online, I went to my local hardware store and they didn't have any of the spouts with the handheld shower fitting. All the normal spouts there cost over $25!
This spouts connector to the pipe is plastic which is probably the only down fall because if you slam against it, it probably will crack/break. Even if this only lasts me a year I still feel I got my money out of it.
Btw, it comes with the pipe tape as well which was a very nice addition so I didn't have to go out and buy some!

The shower tub spout only works for wall mount. It doesn't work for the tub I have so I had to take it back and can't find one to work.

The plastic male tread fitting snapped off at the base when I attached the shower hose. I tightened it finger tight. It is unfortunate the adapter is made of brittle plastic instead of brass or bronze. The water flow out of the spout is terrible. Very low flow. This item is poorly made, poorly designed and a waste of time, money and effort.
Do not waste your time purchasing this piece of junk. The sad news is no one else makes a unit that is any better than this one. All contain cheaply made plastic internal parts. It is unfortunate this is not made of more durable materials.
