Fluidmaster Replacement Button for Cable Dual Flush Valve
I bought this cistern flush button to replace one that the whole of the bottom end broke away. The old unit was poorly made and looks like it was built not to last long . This new push button is much better quality and i also bought the seal washer that goes with it . When tightening up the nut with spacer onto the rubber type washer it holds in place the whole unit much better than the old one did. Well pleased.

I bought this as a desperation move after my horrendous, cheap, brittle plastic button and mount, that came with the cistern fittings supplied by a well known retailer beginning with H, broke, completely, after a mere 18 months.
Out of the packet, it didn't immediately fit either the hole in the ceramic cistern lid or the actual cable mechanism insert, due to different manufacturers varying specifications obviously.
However, the large outer sleeve of the unit is discardable, which reduces the overall diameter of the unit considerably, thus making the unit fit nicely into the cistern lid.
Finally, with a small amount of filing around the circumference of the end that connects to the cable mechanism, again to reduce the overall diameter, the whole thing clicked nicely into place, and functioned as if it was all meant to go together.
So far, so good. Seems sturdy, responsive, good return action on the button.
Long story short, if your cistern fittings aren't Fluidmaster, you may not be able to fit this without some alterations, but it is possible.

I bought this as a replacement for one that just broke - again!!!! Most seem to be very brittle and snap easy but this one is robust and looks like it will last. It has a lock nut so you can lock it in position without over tightening. It also looks to be a universal version with additional stand-off spacer if required. Excellent.

This is a very good product easy to fit and gives a clean look.
