Question about Swanstone CS-1616 Corner Shower Seat, White

1 Answer

Metal bracket with Corner Seat, is it installed prior to tile?

Reference Swanstone CS-1616 Corner Shower Seat:
We are doing a complete renovation of a bathroom. The corner seat is on back order and not due for 3 weeks. I pulled up a installation sheet with a diagram. Verbal instructions did not indicate if after the reinforcement by a 2x6 between studs in the corner were also supplemented with the metal bracket coming with the corner seat...or is it applied after the tile is complete. As I don't have the spec sheets with specific instructions, and this corner seat is to be done after the tile is complete, I am concerned as to whether the metal goes into the wall prior to tile, or not? Anybody out there have any experience installing one of these corner Swanstone seats?

The metal bracket is applied after the tile. That is the reason for the reinforcement between the studs.

For Danze Sheriton/Plymouth tub/shower faucet, I am finishing the wall with ceramic tile and have set plumbing so plastic guard face will be flush with finished tile. One drawing in the instructions shows...

Don't cover area where plastic guard should be. Make it flush. Some trim is designed to recess into the wall before it's flush. Screws, adapters, trim etc. all will need to be installed when tile is set. Make sure you have nipples extending out from shower head and spout area's as well. If you do this and think ahead a little, you will have fewer problems assembling trim.

sounds like you will have to remove the tile and shower pan. The pan needs to be level along all walls. Use a level. I had to cut wood shims to support the pan and keep it level before screwing it to the side walls

Moen 3836...lost installation manual...what size drill bit for the hand held brkt.

There is no single answer that I can give you because it will vary due to material you are mounting to. If you are going to be mounting on ceramic tile or fiberglass shower wall I would recommend you use the plastic anchors that come with the bracket and mounting screws. Use drill size 3/16 drill holes and insert anchors. Mount bracket and screw in place. If you have hollow wall with nothing but sheetrock to hold the bracket I would get small butterfly anchors from hardware store and drill hole slightly larger than the wings on fastener when they are folded back along side the screws.If you have a wood backer board behind shower wall then drill holes with 1/8 inch bit and use screws long enough to reach through shower wall and sheet rock and mount bracket. Hope this helps you. Thanks P.S. If you have to drill thru ceramic tile you will need a carbide tipped bit.
