Hi all, trying to fit a Triton Mixer (Bar style) shower, but I'm struggling with the flipping "dog-leg" connectors... The Studded wall I'm trying to use is basically too thick! Does anyone know of a supplier of extended connectors to allow an installation on a such a wall? Also, does anyone know the thread size of the larger end of the "dog-leg" connectors? 3/4" possibly?

Thanks

don't need extended doglegs.
fix your 1/2" wall plate
so the end is about level with the plasterboard finished edge.
fit the doglegs giving enough room to fit your shrouds and fit the mixer on after tiling.


or use a studwall back plate.

or these even easyier.

The bottom picture, the bristan shower brackets are better than sliced bread icon_lol.gif No more buliding supports to fix packplates to

Just make sure your pipe centres are 150

My preferred option would be the bar shower fixing kit, as shown in post above on blue & white tiles...

Just remember the direction your pipes are going, and DON'T drill through them putting the back plates on...
