Rated 4 out of 5Â by Regan Great experience with this kit.
This trim kit was easy to install.
however, the intallation screw for the handle wasa either too short, or the instructions were not clear on the placement of the screw.
The screw shoud have been installed in the bottom of the limit valve and then through the center of the handle.
Other than that, the install went smooth and the finshed product look fantastic.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RICKG Knob to Heavy
If you plan to utilize for a valve B applications, where you pull/push to turn water on and turn left/right for hot or cold water this valve will not work since the handle is too heavy. I called Danco and tech support advised me that I need to utilize the clear plastic handle since they manufactured the nicer handle too heavy and will not stay at the position you want, it will fall back down pointing to 6:00pm for a reference. I also called Moen (my adapter in the wall) for advise and they replaced my cartridge but that did not work either. Poor engineering.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by friptomitry Didnt fit - Returned it
i was updating our moen fixtures to brushed nickel in preparation to sell our house. we had just had the shower re-tiled as well. after they were done, i went and bought this Danco version for moen because it was significantly cheaper than just buying the real moen handle. but when i opened it, the first thing i noticed is that it was plastic (not metal). but then as some other reviews stated, the back of the plate is square and was too big to fit into the opening cut in the tile.
i wasnt about to try and cut a bigger hole in the tile for the cheap handle, so i returned it and another unopened one for the bath tub) and bought the moen versions. when i got the moen versions, they fit right on and look great. i would reccomend spending the extra money to get the moen version. it installs easier, has less parts to mess with, and is metal.
on the up side, it was very easy to return to home depot, so that helped out the experience.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Noremac Overpriced for use of only one handle
We purchased this kit in expectation of replacing our plastic handle with a more aesthetically pleasing metal handle. After replacing the shower cartridge and installing the handle, we discovered that the metal handle is too heavy and will always revert back to the 6 o'clock (straight down) position. Therefore we have been forced to use the cheaper plastic handle, which is a complete waste of this products potential. Save yourself some money if you're planning on using the metal handle and find another alternative.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by FrankE Flimsy Plastic
I just purchased this last night along with a Moen 1222 cartridge to repair my shower. The escutcheon in the Danco kit is plastic, which is Ok. The handle for the posi temp install is metal, but the adapter (Q) is chintzy plastic which makes a flimsy fit when installed. You can only tighten the allen bolt but only so much; and yet the handle still wiggles. It will be a matter of time before the handle comes off. Not a good buy for required long tern use.
