There are multiple styles of handle assemblies used on Roman Tub faucets. Determining which one you are working with will require removing the handle and identifying your handle mechanism.

  1. Gently pry the cap (#1) off.
  2. Unthread the Phillips screw (#2) and remove. If your faucet does not have a Phillips screw under the cap, your faucet is a threaded hub handle assembly. See Roman Tub Handle Lever: Threaded Hub for additional details.
  3. Lift the handle (#3) off.

  1. The handles (#3) must be assembled in in the off position. To accomplish this, rotate the stem extensions (#4) all the way clockwise for the hot side, or counter-clockwise for the cold side.
  2. Set the handle (#3) on top of the faucet facing the off position.
  3. Thread and tighten the Phillips screw (#2).
  4. Push the cap (#1) back in the top of the handle (#3).
