I've recently purchased 4 racks, for 4 apartments we own, wanting to give tenants ability to hang & store from 4-6 towels, we put in single towel racks, which was short sighted on our paft for tenant use. Anticipating if I liked them, will buy 5 more. Crome is inexpensive, would love to find Brushed Nickle in same concept, at reasonable price. Just ordered the last five. They are extremely light in weight, but when mounted, quite strong and solid. With 2 screws on each foot, total of 8 screws into wall,....they're very well secured. To mount....We found you can pencil in 1st hole, have someone hold unit & put a level on it, then mark remaining 7 holes. Then drill, set anchors, and mount. Won't take 5 min if you do each piece all 8 at a time. My fear is "rust" at some point. We ordered 1 extra, (+ 3 for home use) just in case it surfaces. SPECIAL NOTE: In 3 of the 1st 5 installs, we needed to shorten the length of the rods, (in tighter spaces) about 4". We learned a lot in making this reduction. Please read on, as this will save you immensely in time and reconstruction. I used a "hack saw" & Magic Marker to facilitate the cut. 1st rack I located an insert at H.Depot to put in place of the discarded "nut" that was in the unused tube. Took nearly an hour to excavate this project, not counting trip to H.Depot & moderate cost. 2nd Unit took about an hr. This is when I got more creative, saving the nuts that were in the unused rod, and resetting into the vacant end of the 20" long rod. 3rd unit, after cutting off 4" I put discarded piece in a vice, wrapped in cloth to avoid scratches. Got a long bolt, and hammer, and knocked the nut out, at the surface end. Then put nut in vice, (with cloth) and screwed in accompanying bolt to insure no damage to threads, but to also guide & hold nut into open end of rod, (rod-now placed in vice) with accompanying cloth. I lightly tapped on bolt end setting nut into tube. Removed bolt, & tapped nut into open end of rod with hammer. Tapped to exact surface....now "Good as New." This process gives you flexibility on tight area mounting, and is a quick "RETRO FIT." For good measure, I filed the cut end, making it smooth...before re-mounting the nut. Having shortened 3 racks, I now have 18 4" tubes. If anyone reading this review....has an idea for a use of the tubes....please publish. Seems a waste to throw away 4" chrome rods, maybe a nut could be inserted in each open end, and some sort of appliance could be made.
I had searched for a fixture like this in several places and was unable to attain one. Fortunately I went on line and was successful. This company was easy to shop with and also took Paypal and shipped quickly. Would definitely shop with them again. Rosemary
