Question about Delta T17238-SS Stainless Steel Lahara Double Handle Pressure Balanced Show

1 Answer

The set screw on the tissue holder and towel bar and robe hook will not tighten up to make them hold. Everytime I change the toilet paper both sides come loose from the bracket. I even bought a longer screw to try but didn't help.

I have the same problems you do and I was looking online on how to solve my problem. It seemed to me that there are no published solutions to this problem. Therefore, I thought I had to figure this out myself, and I have. Step one: put a full roll of toilet paper on the bar that retains it. Step two: use in any kind of marker preferably an auto punch inserted in the whole where the setscrew should be make sure however, the position you mark is visible after you remove the toilet paper retaining bar. Step 3:. drill a hole similar in size to the existing setscrew hole. Step four go to your local hardware store and buy a round head brass screw with an elastic stop not or a lock washer and nut to fit. Step five: install the roundhead brass screw retaining nut and washer if applicable or elastic stop not which I would recommend highly tightened. I do not think you will have that problem again. after installation toilet paper will retaining its position. I do not think that more than the simplest of tools is required to fix this would design and engineering mistake.

Required tools: small drill, auto punch, or any other marking device, and screwdriver. Possibly their pliers. Before publishing the solution, I tried it for myself is now been in operation for three weeks. No failures as of this writing. Good luck. VJS

A bolt won't tighten all the way just keeps spinning, but it also won't unscrew out of the wall. What should I do to get this bolt out without stripping the thing?

Yes just pull it out - it will pull out the anchor on the screw, then replace it with a new larger anchor and screw. or fill the hole and re drill a new hole the right size.

Katie are the side bits attached to the oven door by screws. You may need to hold the bar in place between these holder side brackets and tighten the screws.

I have a franklin towel bar and the mounting bracket broke at the screw hole. is there replacement mounting brackets avaible?

Probably not, but if they sell a toilet paper holder of the same style the bracket might be identical to the towel holder, but would be cheaper than buying a new towel bar. Good luck, Al K

I installed a Moen Sage toilet paper holder. The right cover that attaches to the wall hardware via a small screw is loose and no amount of tightening corrects the problem. What am I doing wrong?

It is likely that the the mounting post on the wall has pulled loose.

You will need to remove the paper holder and inspect themounting posts; loosen the set screws in the base of the posts to do this.

Try tightening the screws holding the mounting posts to the wall. If the screws are unable to hold tight you will need to replace the wall anchors if they have been used.

Remove the mounting posts and the wall anchors and replace with new wall anchor, preferably a toggle anchor designed for sheetrock if possible.

With the wall anchors in place attach the mounting posts and install the paper holder; tightening the set screws in at the base of the posts.
