    A shower handle on this unit has a press fit attachment, not a screw. The handle has apparently come off several times and the press-fit will no longer keep the handle attached.
    Short of replacing the entire mixer valve, how can this be fixed?
    I could drill in from the face of the handle, or the bottom, but the mixer valve shaft has nothing to screw into.

    Suggestions?

    I've never heard of a press fit for Delta.
    How about a picture 800 pixels or less of what you have. You can normally buy new handles and trims.

    thank you for the note.
    center shaft has only a press fitting for the handle attachment--no screw.

    Thank you.
    That is good news.
    Can I order from you, or from delta?

    Thanks.

    That is the temperature adjustment and the main part IS attached with a screw. Only the cover snaps on.
