  • Call the manufacturer and they will give you a free handle. Moen is the best, but cry the blues when you call them.

    That is just a plastic/nylon insert made for the handles to slip over and allen screw to hold the handle on. Remove the screw and the insert just pops out. You can buy replacement inserts at Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards. Make sure you take the handle and insert so they can match it up with what you have. All kinds of configurations and styles for different faucet handles.
