Rated 1 out of 5 by from The handshower clamp is junk I am extremely disappointed this product. I have had two of these in as many as 4 months. I have done other bathrooms and had other towel bars installed(Moen, Kohler). I can't believe how bad this clamp design is. The unit is nice to look at.. but it stops there. The first one was replaced under warranty. The second one broke last night after a week of use. The design of the clamp holding the hand shower is flawed. If you want something that you are going to "set and forget" this will be fine. If you want to move the hand shower up and down the bar for different individuals--- LOOK ELSEWHERE. The worst part is now I need to find something that can use that same anchors on center as this one, since I don’t exactly want to put new anchor penetrations in my brand new shower enclosure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't adjust angle no customer service Bought this shower arm with the valve body and a sink faucet. The sink faucet model 592dst and the valve only time will tell how long they last. As for the shower head it doesn't adjust angles, it should but doesn't, all plastic. The plumber and I monkied with it enough so I get wet not the far wall of the shower. Called the local plumbing supply and Delta and got the same answer "working as designed", suck it up. Will never buy delta again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from VERY DISAPPOINTING Today was my first shower in my new bathroom. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Wish I would have read the previous reviews before I ordered this. We did a complete remodel of our bath and love our new shower walls. The Delta shower head however is another story. There is no adjustment for the shower to point down. The ball will only adjust down so far which is not far enough. My husband is 6' 1" and it hit him in the top of the head. I am 5' and it just goes over my head completely. Even lowering the mount would not have fixed it. All it would take is a mount with a 45 degree angle. That would fix the issue. No such thing out there. Seems to me like that would be a 'No Brainer" especially with all the reviews I have read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Accessory to Rain Head and Shower Jets Put this in our 1M plus home in our his and her shower. I have the rain head and body jets on my side and my wife has the rain head, body jets, and Hand Shower package. We don't use this as a stand alone shower head, but instead as an accessory to the rain head as you can see in the attached photo. This was a prerequisite of my wife for her side. Worked out perfectly for us.

How much can parking bracket angle be adjusted?

I have a 51308 and ihe parking bracket only moves from straight up to about a 20 degree angle....is that all the further it will go?
Asked by: Jaycee
Hi Jaycee, Thank you for your question. The hand shower mount shout swivel by about 45 degrees. This will keep the hand shower from falling out of the mount. Best regards, Jon

Trim package?

I'd like to get the Leland Monitor® 17 Series Shower Trim with this, but I don't need the extra Leland shower head. Do I have the option of matching that trim with this hand shower? Our goal is to have the separate controls for volume and temperature.
Asked by: Grant
Thank you for your question. The Leland series does have a valve only model. You could order Delta Faucet model # T17078 and then put anything you want with it. You will also need the R10000-UNBX rough-in to complete the package.

Slide Mount Replacement

Hi, Is there a replacement part for the slide mount? We bought this slide bar and hand shower, and it is great!! But, we would like the Shower head to sit on the left side of the bar and tilt forward.
Asked by: suexicano
Hi Suexicano,Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the mounts that fit on your model 51308-RB slide bar will not tilt in the proper direction when mounted on the lefthand side since the handshower only goes into the mount in one direction. Thanks, Dave

Is it possible to angle where the shower head sits. Ours doesn’t want to budge from straight up and down so water is just shooting straight forward not down to where you actually stand. I’m worried if I try much harder to adjust it I will break it. 

Asked by: Nmogy
If the bar was mounted upside down, the part that is supposed to pivot will not turn the correct direction. If your bar is mounted correctly, you may have to loosen the screw inside the "C" shaped mount to allow it to pivot.

I am thinking of purchasing this hand held shower unit alone -  no additional shower head(s) for a small walk-in tile shower replacement of a very old tub.  Is the water spray which appears to only be 2 choices be sufficient? 

Asked by: Kass
Hello Kass, Thank you for your question. The Delta 3-Setting Slide Bar Hand Shower 51308-PN faucet has a flow rate of 2 GPM at 80 PSI. Best regards, Tanya

Does the showerhead clasp allow for angling?

While the showerhead is in the clasp on the bar, can I tilt the showerhead various angles?
Asked by: Chris
Hello Chris, Thanks for your question! The mount should allow you to angle it so that the hand shower is facing more forward or backward. I hope this helps!

Do the Alen srews that hold the bar in place have a button or something to cover them? I purchased the oil rubbed bronze finish and it looks funny with stainless Alen screws exposed on the bar mounts

Asked by: Sean K
Thank you for your question, Sean K! The screws on this model are not designed to be used with button covers so as to allow water to evaporate quickly. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Best regards, Edward

Does the slide bar actually slide? How does it work?

Hi Rodney, Thank you for your question. The hand shower mount can move up and down on the bar. You can adjust it by turning the handle to loosen the slide mechanism, repositioning it, then tightening the handle. Best regards, Jon

Are any of the parts of this shower and slide bar platic?

Asked by: ann
Hi Ann, Thank you for your question. The model# 51308 slide bar hand shower does contain some non-metallic parts. The showerhead and the endcaps of the slidebar are non-metallic. The majority of the slide bar assembly is metal. Thanks, Dave
