    Symmons Temptrol Shower/Tub Handle -
    I printed off the internet the part breakdwon to my tub/shower one-dial Symmons Temtrol kit as I am trying to stop a slow leak out oif the tub faucet. I removed the screw and cap - and I can't get the handle off - is it hyst suppoosed to pull off once the screw is removed? That is how the instructions make it sound? I don't want to force it case there is some trick to it... any suggestions - I think it is just stuck and needs some persuasion

    Hi Blair,
    The knob is on a spline. Once the screw is off it should pull right off. If you still have trouble getting it off then purchase a "knob puller".(see image) from your local plumbing shop.
    This should help, (see image). Good luck,Tom
