Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet

1 Answer

I need to take the handle off of the Moen T2442 Shower faucet. What tool do I need since the handle seems to be held on by a hex screw but I can't see it to know for sure. I am trying to replace the Moen 1222 cartridge.

There is a hex head allen screw on the underside of the handle. Loosen it and gently pull out on handle while tapping on handle body with non-marring tool Thank you.

The handle seems to be loose because there is a lot of play in the handle befor the stem ingages . Is this normal in the handle


If it's the one I'm thinking of, remove cap in center, and remove Philips screw, and pull handle off. If you have the hex shaped piece still on the stem, look at underside for an Allen key, set screw and tighten it, and put handle back on.

My handle is loose but I cannot find a tool that will fit the set screw. What is it, what size. Blade screw, Phillips Screw, Hex, torx, what? Moen T2442 single handle shower diverter.


It would be an allen wrench. Any typical multi sized wrench should have the proper sized allen wrench.

The holes can often become filled with grime so be sure to seat the wrench properly to prevent stripping.

I hate to say this but maybe the inside of the allen screw has been rounded out by a previous worker. You can drill the screw out and replace the handle with a new one. NOTE: Moen replacement parts are not cheap!

How do I remove the single faucet handle to replace it.


There is a set screw in the handle, it can either be a hex screw or it can be a philips head screw depending on which faucet you have. If you have a clear decrative handle then there is a cap that you remove and the screw is behind it. Once you remove it you can remove the other trim.
