Are replacement handles still available for this faucet?
I have tub faucet handles that look like H41, Clear Knob Handles with Buttons. Can I still order replacement handles, such as H22 or H24, for these faucets? Will they fit on my faucet with the escutcheon (see photo) in place? The escutcheons are labeled on the back side: "Delex" by Delta - U.S. Pat. 3,645,493. Thanks for any help!
Thank you for your question! You may replace the handles with H41 knobs or any H2_ lever handles. However, if you install lever handles, you will also need the RP20184 retention screws.

How do I get the handles off
I believe the shower unit we have is a 2560, though not positive (see picture attached). The screw (long) comes out easily but the handle seems to be held in by a clip or something. The handle is more loose when the screw is removed but seems to come up against a stop when I try to pull it off. Not wanting to break anything I figured I'd ask if there is a trick to releasing the handle. Thanks for any help.
Thank you for your question. The handles should slide off once the screw has been removed. However, there may be mineral deposits causing the handles to remain stuck. Soaking a rag with a half and half white vinegar and warm water solution should help dissolve any mineral buildup.
