Hard to find item, well priced, poorly designed
on September 8, 2011
I was happy to find this item on Amazon and note that the price is a good one. This item is a much better fit than other "bend to fit" levers. However, this is is the third American Standard replacement arm I have purchased. They have all failed (broken) in the same way: the twisting moment on the plastic arm bend next to where the arm attaches to to the tank is too great for the product and the arm within about a year breaks at that point.
The product fits great and works fine and installs in seconds, but should be stronger at the bend to avoid breakage over time.
Is it worth is to pay about $10 every year or so in order to avoid having to replace the entire commode? Yes, but barely. If you agree with me, then I advise doing what I do: buy one arm for now and one arm for when it will break next year.
