Default New faucet but knobs hit wall

Had this put in yesterday and yes I know it was a bad choice but I'm stuck with it for now.

The knobs hit the curtain track.
Can't even close them no more.

anyway to remove the track?

And one of the screws is so tiny I don't even lllave a bit for but looks square.

Thx.

Take off the knobs by prying off the center covers of the knobs to get to the screws and then take them to the hardware store to see if they have L shaped old school handles that will fit. If they do put them on so they have room to close completely.

or if you have a grinder, just take off some of the diameter of the knobs and save yourself a trip back to the store.

Thank you for the reply. I actually had to get it from e trailer so didn't want to deal with the return by mail thing.

So I found these on Amazon and now the curtains close perfectly and I like these better than knobs.

I probably should have gotten a better faucet. This one is kinda restrictive. But one thing that's kinda dumb is why RT put this faucet to the far right of the sink and not in that middle. Water keeps flowing sometimes into the stove then into the drawer below the stove. Kinda silly location for a faucet. But it works and I'll just deal with it as is. Thx again.

I did exactly that. Thx for the reply.

I posted the pic above this afternoon.

I like those levers better and was very simple to put on there with a flat head screwdriver.

Thx again for your reply.
