The faceplate and shower...

The faceplate and shower handle fell off of my son's shower. I cannot get the face plate and handle reattached. I'm able to reattach just the handle. Can I send you a photo of what is going on?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It seems like it should be easy enough

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. I'm just frustrated.

This is common of Kohler valves and it being too far in the wall. It’s probably why it fell of. I would recommend buying an extension kit.
