Handle to the right

Customer avatar
by
Glambarbie
Louisville, KY, USA
I see another question about using the handle on the right side. Apparently, this will not allow the proper tilt on the holder. Is there any way at all to get around this. My bar has already been installed, having in mind that the handle would be on the right. Is there even a part or anything else that I could buy to swap out? Please help!

Answer: 
Hi Glambarbie, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the design of the slide bar shower mount on the model 51708 does not allow for the handle to be mounted on the right and the hand shower holder to the left. Due to the styling and diameter of the slide bar we do not offer an alternative mount that would function properly.
Thanks,
Dave

Does the shower head tilt or swivel?

Does the shower head tilt or swivel, so you can adjust the direction, or is it fixed? Thanks!

Answer: 
Hi Maria, Thank you for your question. The hand shower can tilt on the hand shower slide bar mount. The hand shower itself can be positioned in the mount in different directions but the mount itself does not swivel.
Thanks,

What additional components will I need to install as my only shower

Hi,

I would like to install this handheld unit as my only shower head in a "standard tub/shower" configuration. I would like a single handle that would divert the water from the tub to the handheld shower. I am looking at the Leland line for my faucet.

Thanks,
John

Answer: 
Hi John, Thank you for your question. For your desired set up in the Leland collection you will want the following components. R10000-UNBXHF rough, T14178-LHP tub trim, H778 handle, R11000 diverter rough, T11800 diverter trim, 50560 wall elbow, and the 51708 slide bar hand shower. This set up has a non diverter tub spout so that the wall diverter will control flow to the tub spout or hand shower.
Thanks,
Dave

I'm installing this along with the T17278.

Can you guide me to what I need as far as a diverter and/or valve body? I'd like to be able to use the shower head & handheld both independently, as well as both together.
Thanks.

Answer: 
Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. You will need your shower trim T17278, and shower rough, we recommend the R10000-UNBXHF for your set up. The diverter will require the diverter trim T11800 and diverter rough R11000. This will allow you to use each showerhead individually or at the same time. The last piece you need in addition to the 51708 slide bar hand shower is the 50560 wall elbow for the hand shower.
Thanks,
Dave

Drew

When I move handle to right of bar, the wand holder is tilted toward wall and I can not seem to adjust it so that it is tilted toward the showerer. Is there an adjustment I can make or is there a part to buy that will allow handle on right operation?

Answer: 
Hi Drew, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the handshower holder is designed to only work with the handle to the left and still have the tilt motion pointing into the tub. The handshower only fits into the holder in one direction so rotating the bracket upside down will not work either.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Joy,
Thank you for your question. The model 51708 Slide bar handshower can be installed with the knob to either side simply by loosening the knob and placing the mount in the desired position.
