    Could be part of the tub spout. On the other hand, GB and Peg. from HD......not unusual to find missing parts, or extra parts....... If that piece you have is extra, someone has a box with that part missing!

    If the box was open when you bought it the part was removed from the box to repair someones faucet...when purchasing at big box stores never buy opened boxes. This is one of the most common problems...

    You do realize that they have the thermal strapping machine in the store, and when a box is returned, they restrap it before putting it back on the shelf.....!

    Checked the tub spout you mentioned. Now I have another problem. Plastic sleeve inside spout with a set screw on the bottom. Thought spouts just screwed in? Does the plastic need to be removed?

    that one is made to slip over copper pipe and the set screw just keeps it from spinning...

    Default spout

    You are describing things in such a way as to confuse us. Pegasus copies a lot of Delta parts, so that first piece could be the spout adapter, but if so you should not have the clamp on spout you refer to in the second posting. We need pictures to see what you are talking about.

    When I purchase a strapped box at any big box I open, inventory, and inspect, before going to the register. Unfortunately sometimes while working Saturdays I do have to deal with big box stores and I don't trust either!
