    Morning all

    I wasn't really sure of the best way to describe this however I have a bath and shower that runs off the pipes. No electric shower etc.
    In order to run a bath I simply turn the bath taps on and if I want a shower I pull a small metal piece on the tap up and the water then comes out the shower head instead of the bath taps.

    This morning when I pulled it up the small metal cover came off. This now makes it very difficult to pull up and push down.

    Is this simply a case of super gluing the cap back on? I am wary of it gluing the whole mechanism shut with any residue etc.

    Thanks.

    Sometimes they just screw on.

    It seems to clip on in this instance but when I do this it comes off now. Hence my super glue thinking but didn't know if this could cause issues

    Should be ok as long as you dont glue it shut! Heat from the hot water flowing through the tap may affect the glue though over time, but for a cheap fix, its well worth a try.
