I purchased this item for a grad school apartment, and believe me, you get what you pay for. There is a reason that this is the cheapest bathroom organizer on Walmart's shelves. The metal is rather flimsy, and bends quite easily if you are not extremely careful when putting it together. The corner covers in the top, although appearing to be made of metal in the picture, are in fact plastic with a metallic coating, and, in my case, were broken in the box due to the poor packaging. Also, make sure you take your measurements beforehand, and realize that the height that they give you in the specifications is the total height, and that if you have a tall toilet, you likely won't be able to seat yourself under it. My honest recommendation: Either spend a little more on a product of higher quality, or just don't buy it.

I purchased this set and also the satin nickel finish set (both Mainstays brand). This one was cheaply made. The wire shelves bent with just a bottle of shampoo on them. It also wouldn't fit over the water valve behind the toilet. The satin nickel finish set was very sturdy, fit over the water valve with rooms to spare, AND was the same price as the chrome set. Don't waste your money on this shelf!!!!! I plan to return this one to the store and get another satin nickel finish set.

The instructions were only easy to follow after staring at the pictures for 15 minutes...it would be better if they added words to the instructions since all of the bars look pretty much alike. One of the metal wires (on the shelf) was bent when I took it out of the box which made me think it was pretty flimsy; however, I decided to put it together since only one was bent. I figured once I put items on the shelf, it would cover it up. However, I never got the chance to add one item to the shelves. I assembled all of the parts except one which was the bottom back leg. The hole in the leg (for the screw) was not symmetrical to the hole of the leg I needed to attach. I tried to push the legs together so the holes could be symmetrical; however, the bottom leg is made with a "groove" for the top leg to "fit". Therefore, I was unable to push them together and I could not put in the last screw which made the space saver very wobbly. I decided to take the space saver apart and take it back to the store.

Good for towels but that is it

I agree with the other posters. This thing is cheap. The shelving is so flimsy that I think tin foil has more strength. I purchased this for my son's bathroom to hold towels. Anything heavier than towels is going to make the shelving bend. It is also quite a bit shorter than I expected. Judging from the finish I wouldn't be surprised if it rusts soon. I wasn't expecting top quality for twenty bucks but I almost did return it when I saw how flimsy the shelving was. I decided to keep it as I am sick of my son dumping clean towels on the floor. When this thing breaks I will go with something else.

While the product looked great on the cover of the box, it doesn't meet quality expectations for the price paid. Overall very light weight and flimsy. Wobbles and is unsteady. I definitely would not store my toilet paper on it as it is above the toilet and the smallest vibration would send it plunging into the water! Would not recommend this product as it is definitely way overpriced for the poor quality.

I knew when i bought it that it wasn't going to be great quality. But i bought it anyways so i can have somewhere to place things in my tiny bathroom. took be forever to put it together. the directions are just pictures but it's not to hard. the only problem i truly had was the face that it was poorly manufactured. i couldn't even put a screw in a few places because the bolt inside was sideways. and a few places i had to have my husband bend it so i could put a screw in. i finally got it put together but had i known it was going to be this hard i wouldn't of bought it in the first place. so learn from my mistakes.

A little tricky to assemble

This was a little tricky to assemble as the drawings are a little unclear (like which way to put the shelves in, I put them so the support bar was underneath). But the screws went in easily and the pieces fit together. Hint: Do not install the bottom crossbar piece until the unit is in place over the toilet. Adjust the leg height with the screw in caps at the base of the legs until the crossbar can fit over the toilet valve (probably don't want it resting on the valve). Then screw in the crossbar. I will need some baskets to hold items as shampoo bottles seem a bit wobbly on the shelves. But it is good enough for my purposes.

I have had this shelf for three or four years and moved three times. It has stood through all three moves. Yes, it is slightly flimsy but it goes behind your toilet, not like you are going to be moving it around too often or anything like that. I have my jewelry boxes, child's bath toys, and other items on this shelf and it does just fine. I think if you are looking for something cheap but usable this is a good product for that. I gave it three stars because it's not the top of the line but it is a good product for someone on a budget or not willing to spend a lot of money.

I agree in part with the other reviews of this item. The quality isn't great and it is shorter than I originally anticipated. The picture instructions are useless and you have to assemble the last piece behind the back of the toilet which is a pain. I also noticed that this product was very wobbly but was able to rectify the problem by spinning the front feet a little bit, essentially leaning it back into the wall. You get what you pay for but I am wondering how well this will hold up in the long run.

I bought this item in-store about 4 years ago. It still works fine. It is extremely lightweight and therefore easy to move by myself for toilet repairs and repainting the bathroom. I have arthritis, so this is important to me. The chrome tubes are nice because there isn't a lot of surface area for baby powder to land on which makes it is very easy to clean. I have three good-sized baskets, one on each shelf. I put all my toiletries (band-aids, deodorant, shampoo, soap, etc) into these baskets, then I cover each basket with matching hand-towels. These hand towels get washed along with the regular bath towels. Very easy to maintain. I have an extremely tiny bathroom and this has worked very well for me. The baskets seem to distribute the weight across each shelf, so I have had no problem with the metal tubes bending. We hang our towels on three corners: hand-towel on the front left next to the sink for drying our hands, and one bath-towel on the front right corner & another on the back right corner next to the tub/shower unit. There is a little bit of corrosion on the underside of the two bottom tubes. This is not surprising. The bathroom is so tiny it quickly steams up and drips water down the walls with every shower. I am pleased that it has done this well with all the steam & water it gets in this bathroom. I think the chrome tubing also gives the area a more open feel than the solid wood shelves would. I would definitely recommend this item to others. My son & I use it every day. It's not a bad deal for price. And I actually like it better than the wood ones - no closed off feeling, no painting, one-person setup, easy-to-clean. The open style of the chrome tubing also enables the towels to dry better.
