Does the job...
I didn't want to spend a whole lot on a shower caddy, this one does the job. We'll see over time how it holds to rust, but the finish is nice and it's pretty sturdy. A little wabbly, you don't want kids hanging on it or pulling on it. Assembly is easy.

Could feel and look sturdier
Let me go step by step from the opening the box and completing installation. All parts of the product were there in the box. The installation instructions were clear and I did struggle with putting it together. As I started installing, I noticed that some shelves were bent and their joints (the part that attaches to the tension rod) we awkwardly placed. I had to line them up straight because they won't go in the rod. Everything else was good. Once I put it up I noticed that because of the awkward joints the shelves are having an incline. My shampoo bottle was sliding of the shelves. I have no idea how to fix this other than letting the shelf railing act as a shampoo bottle anti-fall guard. Also, the center of the tension rod started to bend a little - the ends of the rod i.e. where is the tension is, is closer to the wall and the center of the rod is away from the wall. I am praying that it doesn't snap and hurt any body. Also, some silver colored tapes were also present but I did not see instructions for their use in the guide book. Overall, not very happy with the product. But works well considering the price you pay.

better than expected

Verified purchase

Looks good was afraid it may look cheap or fall apart right away. but it looks like it cost more than actual coast. It has held up very well. directions say to put it in the shower, I put it outside the tab/shower for easy access. my daughter has a dozen different shampoos and conditioners she would line up on the tub and this holds it all neatly

love the space

Verified purchase

I was worried when I read the instructions to put it together. I had just finished putting up a curved shower curtain that did not go smoothly. The caddy instructions included a statement of having to cut the rods for the measurements that fit my shower. I don't have tools for that (not sure I'd get it straight anyway) and there was no such tool with caddy. But when I started putting it together and used the specified parts, (this part of instructions were very clear), it went up and held in place without cutting. So either the instructions on the measurements aren't correct or I have it too tight and one of these days I'll hear a loud bang and have a mess. The shelves adjusted very easily and once I got the rubber tubing under the connector, they are very secure. Overall, it's very sturdy and it looks great--awesome like I have my own spa shower!

Great to keep showering items in one corner

Verified purchase

With it's four shelves, you have plenty of space to keep your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razors and a lot more in one corner. This item is very spacious, but at the same time, it doesn't get in your way when showering.

Works for me

Verified purchase

I bought this item because the one I had was white and just contained holes in bottom of each shelf to allow water to flow through. Only problem was that it flowed the water, but kept the dirt. It got dirty in crevices an outside a lot. Now that I've switched to this product, I don't have that problem. It looks as though items would just slip off shelf in front, but there is a tiny lip across front of each shelf that aides in keeping products from falling off ledge. Only issue is when soap gets small, I have to remember to turn the bar of soap across the chrome lines of the shelf as oppose to sitting it parallel with it because the soap has fallen right through the spaces of bars on the bottom of each shelf. I would have liked to see more bars to prevent that, but it still works for me. After the soap gets a certain size, I just take it from the shower and put in on the sink for use until it's gone. I do prefer this type of shower caddy over my previous one

looks nice

Verified purchase

Looks nice. works great for our multiple bottles and other stuff we have in the shower. Although, we have placed the heavy bottles at the very bottom, it seems weak. We are extra careful with it because im afraid it may crash apart. The instructions were awful! Incorrect! I tried it many times and then figured it out on my own through trial and error.

Spring too stiff

Verified purchase

The spring within the pole is too stiff. I could never push it in enough to get it to fit my shower. If I did, I'm 1000% positive it would've made a hole in my roof. Had it fit well, it looks like it would've been good to use.

Not "easy to install"

Verified purchase

On the box it says "easy to install" and fits a wide range of sizes. What it doesn't say is is that in order to fit a wide range of sizes YOU HAVE TO CUT THE FREAKING POLES. Um, who has pole cutters. Not me.

4. It's supposed to placed around each place where the poles meet. I guess it's supposed to avoid rust...but rust will develop on other areas of the caddy anyway. I didn't use it because it just looks silly.

1. Hi, thanks for asking. The shelves are designed to hold up to 5 pounds in weight on each shelf. In general, that should mean that typical "larger" bottles would be OK .... No guarantee if you have a really super-sized bottle, of course. Height wise, the shelves are adjustable, so for any reasonably sized bottle, you should be fine there. Thank you!

2. Good question and I don&#39;t know. I have two 16 oz shampoos and a bodywash on my shelf and it takes that weight with no issues.

3. You can choose where along the poles to put the shelves, so you can make them higher for larger, taller shampoo bottles!

5. It should. The shelves are pretty sturdy. There&#39;s not a caddy to hold large bottles, but the shelf should be strong enough for large sized bottles.

2. I don&#39;t know about rust proof so I&#39;d lean towards no as it is probably just a chrome plated thing based on the $20 price tag. However, we&#39;ve been using our for over 6 months and it is still a nice shiny chrome with no rust so far. Can&#39;t say that about some of the other items in our bathroom.

3. We&#39;ve had this shower pole 5-8 years, and it has just started to rust on the wire shelves, under the soap. I&#39;ve owned quite a few storage poles through the years (great for renters) and this pole has lasted the longest, by far. The only thing better are built-ins. The pole&#39;s finish will last longer when dried after each use. Well, I kept up with drying it off until our family grew. Now I could care less about that pole in the corner, except when it rusts. I&#39;ll replace it with the same model since it&#39;s withstood the test of time. Let&#39;s just hope that the manufacturer&#39;s finish is just as good or better as it used to be.
