    I have just done a new shower for a tenant and today i came to fit the chrome shower backing plates which hide where the valve comes through the wall.

    I mounted the fixing bracket before i tiled and so the valve bits do not extend far enough away from the wall. So when i fit the covers i am left with zero thread to fit the valve.

    Is there an alternative cover plate i could buy ?
