    If it's just the showerhead it shouldn't be that hard. Most of the heads I've put on barely require the use of a wrench for tightening. But if you're putting that much torque on it you should be careful and hold the shower arm with another wrench was your trying to turn the head.
    Be careful not to scratch the chrome. Maybe some pros here have a secret way of doing that w/out scratching it.
