FormaÂ® Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy
Sometimes you don't get what you pay for
This caddy was purchased today and at this price point we had high hopes. Sadly, the tension pole just doesn't have enough tension and it has to be returned before even being fully installed. During assembly, the pole was so wobbly and rickety, I didn't even bother putting on the baskets. There are three pieces that can go in the middle which dictate the height of the caddy pole, but even after finding the right height, the product just didn't stand firm enough. The only tension is formed by a large (and too loose) spring. At this price, keep looking.

A lot more than expected!
Really like the different sized baskets, but they are all good sizes. Hopefully, the stainless part will live up to its name!

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.

Love, love, love
Have had this item for over 2 years now. I was afraid when purchasing that it might rust or have other issues being constantly hit with so much water. I couldn't be happier. Never any issue with the finish. We have a small tub/shower in our apartment and this caddy provides ample storage for large, pump shampoo and conditioner bottles.
