Does this replacement part include the press in cap that covers the handle attachment screw?
I damaged mine when I had to take off the handle to adjust the heat limit setting.
Thank you for your question. RP51424SS will come with the temperature knob and the cover that snaps into place covering up the assembly.

How do you remove this to replace washers?
Thank you for your question. To remove the temperature knob and cover RP51424, you would simply graps the around the edges with your fingers and pull outwards. Once the cover is removed, you can remove the knob by unscrewing the screw in the center of it.

all - metal option
Just bought your T17078 shower trim.
This cheap plastic knob & cover isn't acceptable so I'm looking for an all metal option.
When I inquired about this yesterday (Case# 4482382), Holly told me that plastic was being used because of "lead free compliance."
But that doesn't make much sense, the pressure handle for this unit is all metal.
Please advise, thanks.
Hi Edward, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not offer an all metal temperature knob and cover in our Monitor 17 series faucets, only the volume contol is metal. We do offer the metal temperature and volume control handles in our TempAssure 17T series thermostatic faucet trims like the T17T078.
