Q. "Why would someone need these remodeler's plates?"
A. Often when a shower valve needs to be replaced a hole will need to be made to remove the old valve from the wall and install a new one. Unfortunately it is not always possible to repair your wall due to not being able to match your tile color or various other factors. With these wonderful and stylish plates you can simply cover the unsightly hole(s) that were necessary for the installation of your new shower valve.
Q. "What are these smitty plates made of?"
A. Our polished stainless steel plates are made of solid stainless steel which offers unmatched durability. The polished brass plates are made of solid brass.
Q. "How do I clean my new valve cover plate?"
A. The polished stainless steel covers are not affected by household cleaners but using abrasive cleaning products can scratch and/or dull the polished finish. For the polished brass cover plates, the manufacturer recommends using a mild soap. Again, beware of using abrasive cleaners.

A. In the plumbing industry, these plates are commonly referred to by all sorts of different names but they all serve the same purpose which is to cover up the hole around your shower valve. Some of the common names for these plates that you may have heard are: Smitty plates, shower valve escutcheons, shower valve covers, tub valve covers, remodeler's plates, retro-fit cover plates, valve cover plates, valve repair plates, and goof plates.
Q. "I noticed that only the one hole models come with mounting brackets and screws. How are the two and three hole models mounted?"
A. For the installation of the two and three hole plates the hardware for your tub/shower valve will hold the plate in place. You will also need to seal the plate using caulking.
