Posting this for a friend who mistakenly installed her Delta faucet hand shower mount the wrong way. It's now adhered to the shower wall but needs to be turned and re-adhered. Any suggestions on how to remove it and re-adhere? It's on SUPER tight!

This is the plastic thing that needs to be removed. Sorry, no idea what it's called.

This is the mount that slides into the plastic thing (just to illustrate the question.) The plastic thing needs to be turned because the mount is currently positioned horizontally, where it should be positioned vertically.

    What kind of glue/adhesive did she use?

    • Miriam Illions Miriam Illions on Oct 02, 2018

      It was the adhesive that came with the product where you just peel off the backing and stick it on.

    Try warming it up with a blow dryer to soften the adhesive and gently peel it off. Another option is to use a length of dental floss behind plare and saw through the adhesive. Use some super glue gel or two part epoxy to glue it back on.

    Is it stuck on with a 'peel and stick' style backing, or with a kind of glue that came with the mount when purchased?

    If peel and stick the the hot blow dryer should loosen it quite patient and keep working at various spots until you get it loose enough to slide a narrow spatula or something similar into the area between the two pieces that are glued together. Then Gorilla Glue or E6000 should work to reapply it proerly.

    If the adhesive came with the product you need to contact that company and ask them.
