The trip lever on my bathtub drain has broken. The small loop on the back of the trip lever drain broke off (see picture) and thus can't connect to the rod anymore. Now when I went to purchase a new trip lever I found that the connecting loop on the new trip lever was too small to fit into the end of the curved rod (see picture). Also, my existing trip lever is a Gerber.
Here are my questions:
- Do I need a specific kind of trip lever to fit that rod?
- If the loop on the trip lever is of a standard size, then how do I connect the loop of the rod to the loop on the back of a new trip lever?
I'd also like to not have to buy a new rod mechanism, but rather just replace the trip lever if possible.
Thanks for your time!
