FormaÂ® Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy
Love this Tension Pole
I have had this tension pole up in my bathroom for about six months and it has been everything I had hoped for.
First of all... it doesn't rust over time (and my bathroom gets VERY humid when I take a shower). This pole must be made of very good stainless steel.
Secondly... it's very sturdy. I must admit that it took a bit of reading, re-reading and handy work to put the pole up with all the baskets in place, so I would really recommend that you carefully read the instructions before even taking step one to erect it.
Thirdly... it's a GREAT space saver in my bathroom.
Fourthly... it $50 cheaper than the "other" tension pole that the Container Store sells. I did, therefore, wonder when I bought this pole if it just wouldn't be as sturdy as need be, or would rust, or something else detrimental. But no, it's been great.

We have had this shower caddy for a year now and it already has rusted spots. I love the storage and ease of install but I wish it wouldn't rust so quickly and start looking old and nasty.

Way too tall
Unfortunately, I had to take this product back to the store because it was way too tall for my apartment shower/tub. Very easy to install though.

Useful but not lasting
I loved the idea of this shower caddy. It assembled easily and fit my needs well. Actually installing it in the shower was a bit of a joke. My husband looked ridiculous trying to get it to work. However, after about a year, it started to rust. I don't use harsh chemicals on it (in fact, I use all natural cleaners throughout my home) and still, it has rusted over the majority of the baskets and large areas of the pole. One thing I would like is if it had a section with small holes in the bottom instead of the wire basket. I frequently have small pieces of natural soap that fall through the baskets and get lost down the drain. :( Otherwise, I love it.
