    Default help with identifying plastic stem

    Hi,

    I have this valve in place and need to buy a trim and handle, but I do not see them at Home Depot. Please help me identify the manufacture in this picture. Thank you!Name:  IMAG0110.jpg

    Almost no way to tell without seeing the actual cartridge the stem is attached to unless someone recognizes the lock nut design.

    I am missing a rim and handle. Do you have a suggestion which one I should buy to fit into that stem? Thanks!

    Stems AND handles are "brand specific" so you have to know at least the make, and sometimes the model, to get ANY parts for it.
