simplehuman Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy


Product Information

Our simplehuman Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy helps organize your bath essentials in a corner of your shower or tub. The rustproof pole expands to create a snug fit. There are three oversized baskets plus a soap holder, towel bar, hooks and a razor holder. The baskets can be re-positioned anywhere along the pole for a completely customized solution. Please note that when cleaners are used in the bath/shower area, the shower caddy must be rinsed thoroughly with clean water. Any chemicals that sit on the shower caddy for an extended period may eventually corrode the stainless steel finish.

  • Made from high quality, rustproof stainless steel and anodized aluminum
  • Expands from 6' to 9'
  • Unique tab-locking design allows baskets to be positioned anywhere
  • No tools required for installation



  • 12-3/4" x 8-3/4" x 72-108" h

simplehuman Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shower pole I installed this in our bathroom with a 13-degree vaulted ceiling. It took a bit of work, but the results were gratifying. I cut a 2" cube of wood with the same angle, painted it white to match the ceiling, and secured it to the ceiling with large Velcro dots (see photo). Worked like a charm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the Best I have bought a flimsy tension pole caddy in the past and it didn't hold up at all. I bought this one last weekend and I can tell it's going to do the job it was intended to do. It's very sturdy, holds all my large shampoo bottles, fits the space between the shower enclosure seat and the ceiling, doesn't get in the way and I'm not afraid it's going to fall on me like the other one did! It took a long time to convince my husband we needed to buy it, but he was very happy we did after he installed it and saw how much better it felt to not have all those bottles in the way! He was really glad that the shelf position was adjustable so that they fit above and below the built-in shelf on the shower surround. We will for sure recommend this to anyone who needs one!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Consider carefully features/fit Pros: The caddy was well built. Easy to assemble. Provided amble space for most showers. Cons: 1) The towel hanger does not snap on to the main pole and is not tight on the extension pole. It slips down when two face towels are hanging that are wet. 2) The instructions did not clearly describe how to install the extension section. 3) The shelve designed to hold a shampoo and condition neck down does not accommodate any of the multiple shampoos and conditions used in my house holds. Also any larger bottle would easily tip and come out of the hole. 4) Though the stainless shelves were well build the gaps between them are too large and make it impossible to support thin bottles or containers without tipping. 5) The tongs on the razor holder are meant for a conventional thin two blade razor of days past or used in Europe. But none of my two razor bodies or a disposable were held firmly. I have already had two razors slip off the holder. 6} There was only one razor holder. Minimum two are needed and more would be a definite bonus. 7) The toothbrush holder has two holes but each is slotted and if you bump them they do fall out. 8) The soap dish holder works great with a new bar but when the bar gets smaller and thinner the soap bar is prone to slip between the cracks. 9) It is impossible to find a spot that works for a battery operated toothbrush. 10) I was unable to identify any place that could add accessories to accommodate any additional needs for this shower caddy. My rating reflects my opinion that the pole and design concept are good but the unit does not function well in a modern shower used by two or more people with a variety of products. The blade holder started out to be what I was originally looking for when I visited a retailer and this unit was lacking in that area. Wet towels are very hard to keep on the fingers when the unit is sliding down the pole. I think a person could modify the shelves and brackets to function better but why should I have to do this? I cannot recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An amazing product I will buy this again if and when I move. This thing is amazing. I would have given it 5 stars, but it is expensive. If I have it for a long time and it holds up well, I will definitely come back and give it 5 stars. We'll see how it lasts. But I believe, based on the solidity of the product, that it will last for quite some time. It is made so well and a lot of thought was put into it. You can't go wrong with this. I'm so happy that I didn't waste my money on one of the cheap ones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy, but rusts Product is very sturdy and well configured, compared to similar shower caddies; however, it began rusting after three months. Started first with the soap dish, and then the remainder crates, and eventually the joints on the poles. Customer service was kind enough to issue a refund, but it's a bit disappointing it rusted so soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 years & counting - NO rust! We have now had this tower for over 3 years, and the main reason I picked it is that people raved about the lack of rust. I can confirm this to be true! I have been through plenty of "rust-proof" shower organizers that did get rusty, so I am very happy with this product. Yes, it is a little more expensive, but you are getting a quality product that will last you a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a well built sturdy unit. Easy to put together, even for me. lots of storage features, hooks, places to put containers upside down to dispense contents easily, etc. Glad I chose this option, have used for a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I love it! I wish I would have purchased this 15 years ago when we moved into our house as I've spent easily this much on those shower caddies that hang from the shower head but have tossed them all one by one after they would rust within a year or two (not to mention they never held all the items we use for bathing and showering). This pole caddy is a MUCH better alternative as it is not located under the constant spray and drip of water but instead I placed it at the end of our tub between the top edge of the tub and the ceiling where it would mostly stay dry. So far my kids and I love it! I read other reviews and made sure the order of my baskets seemed logical before locking them in and filling with supplies. It's super easy to install and feels very sturdy once in place. I wish we had 2 razor hooks instead of one razor hook and one toothbrush hook but that is a minor issue compared to the overall awesomeness of this item. Our whole tub area looks better/cleaner now because the caddy over the shower head used to create a mildew issue on the surrounding tile which is now not an issue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shower organizer EVER I bought this 18 months ago for our rented home. The installation was so easy, and it's never budged since. It holds all our myriad bottles of stuff, hangs our razors off the side, and has 2 sturdy large hooks at the top for our loofah, brushes, whatever. It is worth it's price, and you will never regret it. You need this product, don't even look at anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simplehuman tension pole shower caddy I picked up this pole a couple of years ago for my guest bathroom and it has been outstanding. My guests have plenty of space for all of their shower items and can hang cloths and puffs easily as well. Seems to be rock solid and has never slipped of moved once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical & pleasing to look at This caddy is easy to assemble with adjustable shelves. I had some worries that since it works with a tension pole, that it would constantly be slipping out of place, but I've had it up for months now & it hasn't given me any problems. If anything it works better than shower caddies that fit over the shower head, which I used to have. That caddy would slip out of place occasionally and send all my stuff falling over. I also worried that it wouldn't look good (it is brushed nickle with grey rubber footing), but it just seems to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Organization Purchase This was a great alternative to the normal racks that go over the shower head. Easier to reach for shampoo, soap, etc. We installed it in the back corner of the tub and it looks very sleek and not cluttered. Holds the weight with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long? The simplehuman Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy is certainly one of the best purchases that I have made in awhile. Although, it seemed at bit pricey for a shower caddy, it has been worth every penny. There are so many storage places that are move-able depending on your personal needs. Large shampoo/conditioners fit easily and wet washcloth's even have a place. There are also little hooks for loofah sponges (if that's your thing) to hang from. The best part is that it is guaranteed five years for NO Rust! That in itself is fantastic! It looks great in a walk in shower or a traditional bathtub. It makes the tub look clean and organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Shower Caddy I have had this Caddy for over two years. It holds absolutely everything. It is true the pole is rust-proof. The BASKETS, HOWEVER ARE NOT. One must clean them regularly, which shouldn't be a problem, since it's in your bathroom and I'm assuming you wash your bathroom regularly. This is just my opinion, kids.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy; creates lots of space This is the first tension shower caddy I've had, but I decided to go with this one based on the positive reviews and the negative reviews I've seen of other caddies. It works on the ledge of our bath in a rental with very high ceilings and so far seems to be holding up very well. It does seem bowed a bit, even with the proper extensions for our ceiling height, but the slight curve in the pole hasn't seemed to affect its sturdiness at all. We don't have tons of bath products, but I was sick of them falling off of the bath ledge, and this makes a big difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Shower Caddy We've only had it for a little over a week, and it's very nice. It fits with our stainless steel shower tower, and the stainless steel baskets are ample. I love the hooks for hanging items, and the adjustable towel racks (and that there are two of them!). Also, love the rubber-tipped ends so that they don't scratch or leave a stain like the metal ones we had before. My only criticism is that it was rather difficult to put together--the directions weren't very specific. Otherwise, I love that it won't rust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from couldn't be happier I used to keep our bottles of shampoo, soap, razor, etc., on a stool in the walk-in shower...because of the sloped floor things would fall off frequently. This caddy saved the day! No more sliding shower stuff, everything is within reach and it's rustproof! Well-made (nice aluminum parts!) with adjustable baskets (3!), holders for washcloths and other extra shower supplies; a little expensive, but it provided perfect organization

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect We just moved into a total 1950s modern, yet untouched, unfortunately, home complete with a shoe box shower stall in the master suite. The Simple Human Tension Pole Shower Caddy rod was a smidge too short with just one of the extensions added. Given the small size of the room and the small size of the shower stall, I had to jam the rod UP from the bottom, as opposed to down from the top while installing with the second pole extension. Looks fabulous and worked like a charm. Now, I step away from all the box chaos from moving into a nice, small, organized shower stall....ahhhhhh...I just don't look at the ugly tile... HINT: I wished I had added the razor holder shelf last (the highest) for safety reasons in case kids came into our shower. Unfortunately, I added it first, down near the bottom. I COULD just take it all apart and reposition but, given the small room for movement in our bathroom, I'm leaving it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 years going strong We've had this for two years now and it's showing no signs of wear. Great system requires no drilling or damaging walls, so good for renters. Transforms the bathtub area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This is by far the best shower storage item I have ever seen. It's very sturdy and can adjust to fit your space perfectly, and the three shelves are roomy and can hold tons of stuff. Perfect for roommates/living-together couples who might benefit from each having an assigned shelf to avoid fighting over shower real estate. :) One piece of advice: think carefully about what order to arrange the shelves in, because it's a pain to try to change it after the fact. For example, I put the soap holder shelf on the top, but later wished I'd put it on the bottom so the wet soap didn't drip onto the items below.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rack...sturdy and dependable I tried three other racks for our shower. They others were poor quality and didn't hold much. This one is very pricey compared to others, but I figured I would not need to by another one for years. plenty of storage space. I also like the option to configure the shelves in any way, and love the extra towel holder. Excellent construction. My only request would be to have better hooks for our razors. They don't fit .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I purchased this for our shower stall about a year ago and absolutely love it. There is plenty of space for all our products and it still looks brand new, We have had no rust issues or anything. I love the shelf with the little holes to hold bottles upside down when there is very little product left. I'm so glad I found this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and Sturdy I like this shower caddy. Seems rust proof and lots of room for larger items. Have it in a pool bathroom and the extra hooks are nice for hanging swim suit suits. The shelves are a bit difficult to adjust, but that is a one time thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money I had purchased several shower caddies that rusted within months. After doing searches on customer reviews, I purchased this shower caddy in May of 2012. It has been great. It is very sturdy, nice looking and hasn't developed any areas that look like they are going to rust. It is well worth the money if you consider buying something cheaper will have to be replaced from time to time. I would certainly purchase this item again and recommend it to someone frustrated with their current shower caddy.
