I am trying to use universal trim # BT14496-OB and the sleeve is too short
It appears my remodel created a situation where the valve is not deep enough in the wall. If I had a sleeve that was about 3/4 of an inch longer I would not have any issues. I need a longer sleeve to go into the escutcheon. Help please before I call a plumber to break my new wall apart.
Hi Phillip, Thank you for your question. The trim sleeve for the model BT14496-OB is approximately 2.7" long. We offer a 3.5" long trim sleeve but unfortunately not in the (OB) oil rubbed bronze finish. The closest match would be the RP22735RB in our venetian bronze finish.

I am installing shower trim 142996-OB. The included trim sleeve is too short. Do you sell a longer one?
My old trim sleeve was 3.5 inches long. The included one is approximately 2.5 inches long.
Thank you for your question. We do not manufacture a longer trim sleeve in the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. We do have one that is longer that you can use but it is in the Venetian Bronze finish which is slightly different from Oil Rubbed Bronze. It is Delta Faucet model # RP22735RB.

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.
