simplehumanÂ® Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy
ok, but not for the price
We thought that being a simplehuman product, this shower caddy would be (1) well made, (2) easy to put together, and (3) solid. However, the instructions for extending it were unclear and when we put it in the shower it didn't stand straight. I think it will be okay for now, but for the price, I would have expected it to be easier to manipulate and be more steady. It does look nice though and if it doesn't rust, as the other reviews we read claim, we'll be relatively happy with it.

I had originally bought the cheaper shower organizer, as I didn't plan on needing this thing for that long (due to planned remodel). However, after assembling the cheaper version, then trying to install in the shower, I realized it wasn't going to work. The organizer needed to work for 5 people in a house with one shower. So back the store the next day to return it for this simplehuman model, and I am so glad I did! This organizer is sturdy, easy to setup, and is well though out. We have had it for one month and I've been very happy with it. Don't waste your money on the cheaper one, unless it's for lightweight use or very temporary.

I have gone through so many other pole shower caddies over the years. They all had little rubber rings holding up the shelves...so they weren't very strong and were always tilted. None really lasted between moves, and they would just get kind of gross no matter how well I scrubbed. I love this caddy, it's still one of my favorite things about our bathroom. It's expensive, but very sturdy. I like that the shelves are deep enough to hold taller bottles. I think the little soap tray is useless, but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. Money well spent.

Looks nice but scratches the pole as you adjust!!!
My boyfriend and I have just purchased this system for our bathroom because we have 10' tall ceilings. It installed pretty easily... seemed a little wobbly but so far is holding up to 5 full bottles of shower products pretty well. My major complaint is about the mechanism that secures the shelves to the vertical pole. As you move it up and down to adjust its height, it SCRATCHES as it goes!! The finish and the paint! You can actually feel the gouge in the metal!
Definitely not a fan of that. Thats the only place where we felt the design fell sadly short. Expect more from Simplehuman. Going to keep it for now and see how it works out. But definitely disappointed about the design. I dont think we would buy this system again unless this was fixed.
