Thread: Problem with American Standard shower valve

  1. #1

    Default Problem with American Standard shower valve

    Hi all, I finally got around to remodeling our downstairs bathroom and by the time I got the tile on the walls I go to trim out my shower and noticed that my shower valve does not come out far enough! I blame the framer, which wasn't me, but the problem remains. I talked to someone at American Standard about this and explained my problem so they suggested I go to Lowes and order an extension kit for the model #1674 Cadet shower unit. This is the shower unit I am using. The part number for the extension kit is M961818-2950A. I took a look via the web and it just looks like a hose connector of some kind and not at all like it would do any good. Has anyone else had the unfortunate luck of dealing with a shower valve like this? I thought I'd throw the question out there! Thanks.

    Peace, donner

    Default extension

    The only parts you should need to extend it out, are an extension for the stem and longer screws, (or whatever holds the plate on).
