I have model # T14496-BN and the trim sleeve is too short, what should I do?
Also the Tub spout diverter will not work on the existing pipe coming from the shower wall, is there an adapter that has a reduced thread size or insert of some sort for the diverter?
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated seeing how I do not wish to tear out the wall and change all the plumbing.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T14496-BN includes a spacer with the trim sleeve. You might try either taking it out or putting it in to move your trim sleeve up or down. If this does not work, then the valve will need to be moved.
The tub spout needs to have a 1/2 inch pipe coming from the wall.

Does this trim sleeve come in longer lengths and the escutcheon screws come in shorter length. We are retrofitting an older home with a Delta shower surround, however the depth of wall creates a 5/8" variance leaving the brass diverter exposed
Thank you for your question. We have three sizes for the trim sleeve. The Delta RP50879 trim sleeve is 2-1/16". The RP39407 trim sleeve is 3". The RP22735 trim sleeve is 3-1/2". Here are links to both:
We have two sizes for the escutcheon plate screws. The Delta RP196 is the original screws that come with the trim and they are 2.75" in length. The other option is the Delta RP12630 which is 1" longer. Unfortunately, we do not have a shorter option.
