I've had to replace the shower mixer and don't know how the old one managed to stay on without leaks. I've attached a photo of the inlet and a photo of the dogleg connector screwed in giving me not enough thread.

The valve the dogleg connector connects to is recessed quite a bit into the wall. Does an extension exist where I can simply screw it into the existing valve, and then screw my dogleg connector into it?

Apologies for any wrong terminology, no knowledge in any of this.

Unfortunately the shower valves dog leg connector is 1/2 in at one end and 3/4 in at the other. So the part you lnked to with both ends 1/2 in, male ,won't do. The valve connectors are 3/4 in female.
