What is the maximum deck thickness for installation?
What is the maximum deck thickness for installation? The spec sheet says 1 1/8" but I saw a post that this had been increased recently to accommodate thicker granite installations?
Hi Frustrated, Thank you for your question. In response to the trend of thicker counter top surfaces all of the recent and new wide spread lavatory faucets have a max deck thickness of 2-1/4". We offer the RP10612 for the models that need additional thickness.

Thank you for your question! Out of the box, this unit works with a maximum deck thickness of 1 1/8". However, the RP10612 extension kit will add an extra inch to the maximum deck thickness.

When properly installed should the handles pull toward or away from you?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 3553LF-SS has handles that turn towards the spout when turning the water on and away from the spout to turn it off.

Even since install the hot and cold handles do not lie completely straight when in the off position. How do you adjust it?
Thank you for your question, embiidphila! The placement of the handles will rely on the valve orientation. If the base of the handle is not appropriately placed then the lever will also stop short of center. Please refer to diagram A and B in section 1 of the maintenance and installation manual for instructions. For further assistance, please contact our customer service team directly at 1-800-345-3358 Monday-Friday: 8a.m.-8p.m. EST and Saturday: 9a.m.-6p.m. EST or via email at email@example.com.

How can I adjust the handles so they stop when turning them
When I add the bonnet under the handle the handles do not catch on the stops so the handle goes all the way around. Is there a way to adjust the valve up or should I not use the plastic bonnet on top of the valve cover?
Thank you for your question. Please refer to diagram B in section 1 of the instructions. Please make sure that the top glide ring (5) is installed with the flat side face up. Please also be sure to press the handle (6) down until it is flush with the handle base (7).
Please also make sure that the top retainer (8) is threaded all the way down onto the valve. You may need to loosen the mounting nut to thread the retainer.
