FAQ, Installation Instructions, and Videos for Perfect Fit Gasket

Q: I have a trip lever that opens and closes my tub drain.  Does the Perfect Fit Gasket work with my trip lever?
A: Yes, the Perfect Fit Gasket has a trip lever gasket kit with a specially designed trip lever to accommodate our gasket design.  Please specify that you have a lever overflow in your order.

Q: Do you have trip lever overflow?
A: The trip lever overflow kit will be available November 2016, but not currently.

Q: Would your kit work on my overflow plate which has two screws, one on each side, instead of your overflow plate only has a center screw?
A: Yes. First, use two screws to secure the gasket together with the aluminum ring to the tub, then use the center screw to screw the overflow plate to the aluminum ring.

Q: I have an overflow with a center screw. Will your product work?
A: Yes. To prevent the gasket from rotating, using a bit of silicone sealant would be helpful in securing blue gasket. Also, our standard length screw would work for most cases, but sometimes a longer screw might need to be purchased from your local hardware store.

Q: My center screw in my overflow is stuck or broken. Can I still use your product?
A: Yes. You can use an adhesive, such as silicone, to stick the rubber gasket to the tub as well as the aluminum ring to the blue rubber gasket. The overflow cover can be secured by screwing it into the aluminum ring.

Q. What are the dimensions of the gasket and cover?
A. The aluminum ring and gasket are 2 3/4″ in diameter, and the cover is 3″ in diameter.

 

Installation Instructions for Tubs with Only Center Screws

  1. Remove the existing overflow plate and rubber gasket.
  2. To fit the tub’s center screw, cut a slit at the top of the tube of Perfect Fit Gasket. Ensure to do a dry fitting before installation.
  3. Insert the Perfect Fit Gasket into the overflow, followed by aluminum ring and overflow plate. (We recommend using a bit of silicon sealant to secure the blue gasket to the tub in order to avoid gasket rotating.)
  4. Screw overflow plate, aluminum ring, and gasket by using the screw from our overflow plate.
