This very stylish and manly towel bar was perfect for my husband's bathroom. He had room for only one in his small bath, and he wanted something modern and manly. These fit the requirements perfectly. He can hang his oversized bath towel folded in half length wise and a hand towel on it. It was installed by our contractor during the bathroom remodel, so I cannot speak to the instructions & assembly part. But it looks great, functions well, the finish matches the other brushed nickle fixtures in the bath. We are very happy!
