Tank Lever from the Brantford Collection
Pretty, easy to install
I purchased oil-rubbed-bronze door handles, kitchen knobs, bath fixtures, and lights for my entire house. I wanted high end. The Brantford ORB is very pretty, with a speckled brown finish and a Chess "pawn" shape to the brackets. In general, all my Brantford tank levers work great, and in fact one toilet that never worked right now does, so the problem had to be the old big-box lever. We did have one possibly defective lever (too much internal friction to move smoothly, even with WD-40) but Moen's CSR promptly replaced that lever. We are very happy with these levers.

This handle looks great with the matching fixtures. Classy, sturdy, easy to install. Comfortable shape to use.

This comes up in both right- and left-handed tank lever searches. It's actually universal, but that's not said in the product info. Because of that I bought 2, and it'll cost nearly as much the return the second as it cost to buy it.
Aside from that, the Moen Brantford line includes very good quality, sturdy products. I like the way they look in my master bath and how well they coordinate with other brands of lighting and other bathroom fixtures.

Won't work on most side mounts
We tried to install this on a side mount and failed. It simply does not have enough movement to pop up the flapper. It will only work if you hold the lever down. We even had a plumber try it and he advised we return it. Great for front mount. Disappointed that we will have to find another lever that won't match the rest of our fixtures.

redid two baths
I would give this 5 stars except for a fault not due to it but due to the toilet I put it on. Put it on a Kohler toilet which has a curved front so that the escutcheon has a very slight gap towards the rear which no one else notices. The Kohler lever that comes with the tank does not have this problem. Could be solved with a special order escutcheon but the problem is so slight, no one but me even sees it.

loved the lever. Unfortunately we could not use it on our Toto toilet & we were very dissappointed. However, fortunately my daughter could use it at her house so of course we gave it to her rather than send it back. She loves it. Took her only 2 minutes to install & was very impressed with the quality. I wish I could find the same type that would fit our toilet.

beautiful and sturdy
i picked the brantford collection by moen to update a hall bath that is being remodeled. i have not started all of the work as of yet, but i decided to install the tank lever to get an idea of how i would like the look. what a sturdy, heavy and substantial piece. i kind of wish i had put this in my master bath, but, so far, so great!

This lever is sufficiently universal to fit in a Kohler water closet. This was a bathroom remodel, and I ordered the faucet, towel bar, hook, and water closet lever all to match. Everything went together fine, and no leaks.

It's worth it
Easy to install and it makes a much better impression than the standard mechanism toilets come with.
Unless you are shopping for a cookie cutter builder grade property, I suggest buying this.

We bought 3 new toilets and decided we would by levers for each one in brushed nickel Brantford design, so far they have been installed on two toilets and work great and look great.
