Trouble finding Glacier Bay faucet handle adapters.
I like the name brands. My sister is bias toward Glacier Bay for the style but I'm having trouble finding parts. Have shower and sink faucets with stripped handle adapters. I tried H.D. & Lowes. Can find some valve cartridges but not handle adapters. She called the Glacier Bay 800 number and and has been emailing them with pics. While at first things seemed promising, she's been passed to several different companies but no one claims the items as theirs. I think there are 7 manufacturers. In this case, the inside plastic or nylon adapter between the handle and valve cartrides are stripped and keep rotating. I used a couple of wraps of electrical tape to tighten things up and hold them over but can't find replacements. She wants those exact handles so adapting a universal is out of the question for me. In this case, the part which fits into the handle itself is 6 sided. I'll try to attach pics. I've come to the conclusion that I must research how to cast a mold from a good one and make my own but that's a little extreme. Does anyone know where I can get these or exact handle replacements? Thanks
