AHA moment faucets that turned the wrong way

Bought our new fiver and found on our first trip that all the cold water faucets turned the opposite direction we were used to. This made for many cold or overly hot moments in the shower. Knew that the faucets had small replaceable cartridges and I figured I would have to replace the cold ones. After taking apart both the hot and cold cartridges for comparison I realized the cold side was adjustable. The little metal plate that cuts off the water flow could be shifted to one side or the other. This makes all the faucets work the same direction and saves me from having to buy new parts! Hope this helps someone. I can post pics if someone wants them.

It's because the shower handle deal is upside down.

Ours is one of the faucets with a bathtub so it only goes one way but it wouldn't matter. The problem was that he hot valve was (pardon the expression) righty tighty/lefty loosey as are every valve we have come in contact with. The cold though were lefty tighty righty loosey and confounded us every time we turned them on. The hot had no adjustment internally but the cold valves had notches for adjustment. Will go out in a minute and take some pics.

Ok! Now that I know there are others out there with the same issue in their showers. It sure makes you wake up quicker in the shower.

Now what is the remedy again?

Thanks, just got back from FL. either burnt our ass off or froze our ass off with the valve arrangement. I will definitely be outside looking at this in a few minutes.
