Bungee Overdoor Towel Rack by UmbraÂ®
I actually asked for something to organize my scarves. I had them piled on an over-the-door multi pronged hanger and they were hard to see in the piles. I wasn't sure how this would work because the scarves might drag on floor. Because the rods are movable I could position them higher and knot each scarf onto rod. I arranged them by colors per rod and they now cover the back of a door to the bathroom area. I can actually pick out a scarf cause I can see them.

This is a great, practical product. It is so versatile, you can use it for more than just towels and adjust it to meet your needs.

So convenient with multiple uses
We're getting ready for a group of friends/family to visit, and we needed extra towel hooks or bars. This can be easily dismantled and stored. It's also great for hanging baby & toddler clothing and baby blankets and burp cloths so that they are easily accessible and visible.

Great for RVs
We bought this for our trailer and it is perfect! We had no towel racks and no wall space for a towel bar. This solved our problem and no holes had to be made in the door.

Needs better towel bars
This could be a great product for more towel space....however, the towel bars constantly come out from the ends... so, you have to lightly touch the bars so that they don't come out from the ends. Kinda painstaking!!

Could have been great
Great idea and it seems decently constructed. Unfortunately I cannot close the door with the rack on it. A redesign with a slimmer top might make this a must-have. Until then, I'll keep trying other brands.

Had to send back. Does fit over door,but cannot shut bathroom door.
So beware in purchasing this product! Cost me half as much of this product to ship back.

Bought this overdoor towel rack for my husband as I have had one for several years and had difficulty finding it again. We really like this product. Made my husband super happy!!!

container store to the rescue
this was purchased for our new rv....we hang up our towels to dry since we have minimal laundry facilities when we travel...this will allow us to hang them over the bathroom door...we will not have to take it down when we travel!!

This item is as fantastic as I wanted it to be. It was fairly easy to install. I say fairly only because I'm short and the top of the door is just a little to tall for me. I like that you can adjust the bars, and it will stretch to fit. I keep mine in the closet to hold the beach towels.

Best Overdoor Towel Rack on the Market
I have an old house that has thin hollow doors and couldn't find anything that would work in my bathroom. This is stylish and works perfectly. Have used other racks and they are bulky and bang door and walls when you move the door. Recommend to anyone that wants a great solutions and doesn't want to mark up there surroundings.

This is a great idea if you never plan to close your bathroom door. I installed this easily over the door, hung my towels and shut the door. OUch. The hooks scratched up my brand new doorframe, as the door would barely close without effort. It's too costly to ship back for a return. To Goodwill it goes....

Ok for standard door. Kids can't reach top rung.
The rack did not fit our narrower door that leads to a bedroom, with the bungee type cord hitting the door knob. It did fit the standard door that led to the hall. But, we already had a towel bar on the wall behind the open door. The towel on the wall and the one on the door would squish up against each other and not dry very well.
We had purchased it to help our smaller kids hang their towels up. When the rungs were lowered enough without having the towels hit the ground, the top rung was essentially useless.

Excellent Space-saving Tool!
We occasionally have overnight guests, but never wanted to put towel bars up in the spare bathroom. This product totally saved our walls! Super-easy to install. Perfect for what we needed. Great purchase--very happy.

Perfect solution for small spaces.
We have a tiny older home. The bathroom is tiny, as is the bathroom door. Other over-the-door towel racks are just too big. There is no room for an extra holder for a hand towel. This rack solved the problem perfectly. I adjusted the bars so the highest is only waist-high. We use that bar for a hand towel, the second one is a spare, and the lowest one became a magazine rack!! That configuration leaves the hook on the back of the door usable for a robe etc. while showering.

Love the towel rack
Easy to put up and very cool design! Works nicely too.

Makes bathroom looks neat if you have more than one towel to hang. Makes door harder to close, but I think the issue is my doors and not the product. I was afraid that bungee part may get loose and hit me in the face, but that did not happen.

Fit great and easy to install. So far is holding up well with weight of wet clothes/towels

Hold the towels nicely. I love that the bars are adjustable.

I like this towel rack because of it's adjustability - I do have to say that the brackets did leave marks on my door and door frame, but I think most do. All in all, I would recommend this product.

Functional, but not the high quality of purchases normally acquired from the Container Store. The top and bottom brackets do not sit well on the door. The brackets are not really padded in any way to keep them from scratching the door finish. A word of caution when installing - the rods are not permanently affixed to the piece that holds them on the bungee cord and one popped out while my hubby was trying to adjust the top and bottom brackets and it hit me as I was helping him. Also, if your door has a lever handle, the rack may be a little too wide and the bungee may be up against the door handle. Rods are easy to adjust and it hold towels well.

Great use of space
These are in my apartment on the bathroom doors. They really work well holding the towels, and my towels also dry well!! I use the wall mounted towel rods for decorative towels, which frees up my linen closet.

Very easy to install - I like that you can choose where the bars go (move them up or down). Holds my towels nicely. I also like that the top and the bottom are all attached so the rack does not bang against the door.

Great storage solution
I'm trying to help my 5 year old be more independent, which includes hanging up her towel when she's done. The towel rack in her bathroom is too high for her to reach and the bathroom is incredibly small so moving it wasn't an option.
We've been using this towel rack for about a month now and it works perfectly. I love that the height of each bar is adjustable, hanging it up was very fast (less than 5 minutes, no tools required), and the hooks don't move around. One of the bars did fall out the other day when nothing was hanging on it, but I put it back in and it has been fine since.
I almost didn't buy it because another reviewer commented on how visible the metal hooks are, but I don't even notice them from day to day. That being said, if I wasn't a renter I might have done more brainstorming to find a different solution, but I'm satisfied with this for a quick, affordable fix.

Fun Shower Gift!
I first purchased this towel rack because I was renting and needed a portable option that wouldn't harm the door or walls. I quickly fell in love with it!
I've given one to each of my children, my mother, and when my friends get married or have a baby this is the gift I give. One friend thought it was a little odd for a baby shower gift but she put it on the back of her baby's nursery door. She loves it. It provides a place for her to allow soiled items (after rinsing) to dry out before putting them in her hamper. She got one for each of her bathrooms.
It may not be the most romantic gift but it's been a favorite among my friends/family. Quick set up, lightweight yet sturdy, and the choice of where to put the rods makes it ideal for nearly everyone!

Good & Bad
Ordered this towel rack to use in my horse trailer living quarters. As space is at a minimum for towel storage in my small bathroom, I felt this would be a great way to have towels easily available and utilize the space. Unfortunately, the brackets at the top would not work with the way the door is trimmed out. I realize that this is not the fault of the product. HOWEVER, I would not have ordered the towel rack if the measurements stated in the ad were correct. It is NOT 18" wide it is 20" wide - and that is the exact width of my door so it would not have worked anyway. Would have saved myself some money if the info. in the add were correct. With all this said, I feel the product is a great one and wish it would have been usable for me.

Perfect for camper bathroom!
The towel rack is the perfect fit for our new camper. It does not swing about when the door is opened.

No Wet Towels on the Floor!
The Bungee Overdoor Towel Rack provides a terrific way to increase hanging space in tight quarters without drilling holes. It is easy to install (though the hooks needed to be modified to accommodate the thickness of the door) and adapts quickly to hold towels of different sizes.

The issue with metal overdoor racks and hooks is that they can rattle and make noise when doors are opened and closed. This towel rack holds towels and makes no noise! Love it! Thinking of adding one to the sewing room door to hold fabric pieces. As some other reviewers have stated, the towel bar does work itself loose occasionally (once every several months for me), but it is an infrequent occurrence, and it goes back together easily. No noise opening and closing the master bath door is more important in my book!
