My bathroom shower handle needs replacement -- it started falling off recently. It's damaged and needs replacement.

What kind of a handle would work?

Below is how the rest of it looks like. Note that I don't know the brand, it's not written anywhere. Nor do I know which year it was produced.

Edit: here are pictures of the handle itself:

Note that the outer hex bolt is stuck (sitting for hours in WD-40, no success turning it after that). I might be wrong, but I think there are two inner bolts on either side of the inner square piece. One is stuck, the other is missing entirely.

I tried multiple handles from the hardware store and none of them really worked.

    That does look a lot like some Delta models.

  • why is the handle falling off? ... are you sure that it is not a case of a loose screw?

  • I updated my questions with: 1) pictures of the handle 2) why the handle is falling - looks like one of the screws may be missing but there's no way to fix that.

For the record, in case others are struggling with this, I ended up using this:

It is a LASCO HL-50 Metal Lever Handle and fits Valley Brand (which is, per what what someone advised me offline, my bathroom shower handle is)

They sell it at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FHBIQS
