Below is a video and a step-by-step guide which explains how to tighten your shower head holder.
Tighten Your Shower Head Holders In 4 Easy Steps
To tighten your shower head holders, follow these steps:
- First, remove the shower head holder cover to gain access to the screws that are holding the shower holder in place. These are usually Phillips head screws so be sure to have the appropriate screwdriver at hand.
- If they are loose, all you need to do is to tighten them. But be careful not to overtighten them. Once done, replace the covers and you’re done.
- If needed, you can take the washers apart and clean them and wipe them dry.
- Next, check your shower head holder set screw. Take a look at the screw threads: Are the threads still good? If yes, all you need to do is to make sure the set screw is tight and secure.
- If the set screw thread has been stripped down, take some PTFE tape (Polytetrafluoroethylene is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Being hydrophobic, non-wetting, high density and resistant to high temperatures), and wrap it around the screw thread. The PTFE will make the set screw thread grip better. Then, use your screwdriver to twist the screw back in and tighten it.
- If the PTFE does not work, visit your local DIY or home improvement store and get new screws of the same dimensions as your current one.
- Then, replace the cover and your shower head holder should be nice and secure. Check to make sure that your shower head holder is tight by placing the shower head and see if it dips down or not.
