  1. Scott

    Does this fit a Glacier Bay lav faucet 67090W-5001? Is this the same as GB’s part #RP22010, from the faucet’s manual? I’d look at one, but Home Depot doesn’t have them.

    • Danco (store manager)

    Easy, exact replacement for my Delta faucet cartridge.

  3. Christina Morgan

    There are no instructions in the box. The online video says to “replace the seat” but then does not tell you what a “seat” is. A simple that is what the spring and gasket are would have been helpful to someone like me taking on home repairs for the fi...Read More

      Good Morning Christina,
      Hello! Thank you for choosing Danco products. We apologize for the confusion you experienced. We know it can be very frustrating when your DIY install doesn’t go as smoothly as you intended. We will let our Design team know about your concer...Read More

  4. Jim

    I replaced this item with very little instructions. I agree with a previous reviewer that there should be instructions in the package and also it should specify what a “seat” actually is. Remember we are the DIY consumer and not actual plumbers. Otherwise, I am sa...Read More

    • Danco (store manager)

      Good Morning Jim,
      The seat is the black rubber piece that goes on top of the spring. There is a picture on step 4 in the “Installation & How To” section on the product page. It can be also shown under our How To Center which is located under the Support ...Read More

    This will fit a Glacier Bay two handle kitchen faucet, model#385-039. The Danco has a plastic stem and my original had a brass. However, it fit perfectly. The rubber seal comes with a spring. To remove the seal, all you have to do is use a small screwdriver and pry up – ...Read More

  6. Holland Young

    Hello, I replaced the cartridge and the seat, but the unit will not shut off (after I turn the water main back on). Not sure if I am doing something wrong, but there does not seem to be a lot of different ways to install this. Any help appreciated.

  7. Anton

    I was surprised to see NO INSTRUCTION in the package, and nothing on the website either. If you enter the model number, which is “10405” in this case, “No Installation Instructions Found” come out as a new surprise from Danco. Product is good, but in mo...Read More

    argh. lining up the cartridge is a bear. there are ears on the left and right that have to slide into the receiving sleeve. does it matter which way the cartridge is situated? There are two choices. I finally got the bugger in and closed everything up. when i reopened the wate...Read More

    • Danco (store manager)

      Good Morning Joe,
      Thank you for your feedback. It sounds like the seat and spring may not have been installed properly on the initial installation. The spring should go in first, wide end down, and then the rubber seat goes on top of the spring. Getting this out of order...Read More

    Looks like it was a match for my Pfister Classic 974-013 as well, stopped the drip.

  10. Mary

    What if you don’t remember the direction the original faucet was facing? Any suggestions?? (There should be some!)

    • Danco (store manager)

      Good Afternoon Mary,
      Thank you for reaching out to Danco. The stem can be used on both hot and cold applications. To ensure you install it in the correct direction, you can check the other side of the faucet stem (after removing the handle) and then install the valve ste...Read More

    That was supposed to be very easy fix, but I ended up with faucet handle that rotates 360 degree! It doesn’t stop. There is not instruction on the package either. Not everyone is a plumber.

    Product works the way it supposed to just the water flow is half of what was their previous cartridge after looking at the old cartridges holes on the back or twice as big or the cut out is a lot larger than those two little holes on the back of the new cartridge other than th...Read More

    Do these stems work for a Glacier Bay shower valve?

    • Danco (store manager)

      Hi Tarif!
      Thank you for reaching out. No, this faucet stem will not work for Glacier Bay shower valves.

  14. RPH52

    No instructions, otherwise five stars. The rubber/seat spring can be slipped on the sharp end of a pencil to help guide it into the indent. This part is the trickiest. The wide part of the spring should be facing down. The cartridge lines up with two notches, with the flat sid...Read More

Step-by-step instructions

Is anything more annoying than a leaky faucet? Maybe not; But it's also well within your power to fix it yourself with Danco. Read on, to find out how. Tools and supplies required: Flat head screwdriver, Phillips head screwdriver, wrench, seat removal tool (optional)

First, determine the source of the leak. If water is leaking from underneath the handle onto the counter, the stem of whichever handle is leaking needs to be replaced. If water is dripping from the faucet, turn off the hot water supply valve under the sink. If water is still dripping, you need to replace the cold stem (right handle). If the water stops dripping when you turned off the hot water valve, you need to replace the hot stem (left handle). Once you’ve determined the trouble stem, turn off the water supply.


Remove the Handle by lifting off the Index Cap with a flathead screwdriver. Next, Remove the handle (so the stem is visible) by loosening the Set Screw by the screw counter-clockwise. Set aside the Handle, Set Screw and Handle Button to reinstall at the end of the project.  


If you have a plastic stem, unscrew the top cap and pop out the stem. If you have a brass stem, remove the stem by using a wrench and rotating it counter clockwise until it threads out entirely. Take a look at the Washer which is located on the lower end of the Stem. If the Washer is squeezed flat or has a groove worn in it, a Washer Kit coupled with a new Faucet Seat will likely solve your problem. When replacing the faucet seat, you can remove and replace the seat with an Allen wrench or a seat removal tool. Turn the seat counterclockwise to loosen, clockwise to tighten. Once removed, you will need to take your stem to your local home improvement store and use the Perfect Match locator system from Danco or use the online Stem Finder. This system makes it easy to find your replacement.


Once you have purchased your new stem, you can install it into your faucet

  • Install a brass stem by rotating clockwise until it threads entirely and tighten with a wrench.
  • Install a plastic stem by placing the stem into the handle base and screw on the top cap.


Now is a great time to upgrade your faucet’s appearance with universal metal handles. How to install the new universal handles

  • Place the handle adapter over the stem and tighten
  • Place the new handle on the adapter and insert the handle screw into the washer then into the handle and tighten.
  • If your new handle has an index button, place it on the handle.
Finally, turn the water back on to ensure the leak is fixed.
