Any chemicals that sit on the shower caddy for an extended period may eventually corrode the rust-resistant finish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed by rust I wanted to love this and didn’t encounter the flimsiness others did. I’m also a huge fan of this company’s products, but this one fell short. Unless they have greatly improved the finish to prevent rust I would not waste your money. $80 is a lot to spend on something like this to have to chuck it in the recycling been. I’m so disappointed The Container Store would carry something not up to their standards:(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Both better and less expensive I own two tension pole shower caddies bought from Container Store--this one and "simplehuman Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy". Of the two, this one is both far less expensive and much better. The trays of the SimpleHuman caddy sag slightly causing the bottles to slide forward. The InterDesign caddy, though, holds the trays flat. The only reason I gave only four stars is that the instructions are a bit unclear. I eventually puzzled my way through them. Having done that, the result is excellent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from shower caddy Loved the way this looked to keep my shower items organized. Purchased two. One box was incomplete with items missing, including the manual. The second box, after two hours of trying to read the instruction book, we came to the conclusion that the manual did not match the items being assembled. Very disappointed. The store was very good - items returned no problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Covered in rust We loved this shower caddy when we purchased it 2 years ago. I wanted the "other" brand that had a better guarantee. But, that one cost more so we settled for this one. It installed easily and did what we needed it to do: provide storage. I started to notice rust spots after about six months. Now it's just covered with rust and is disgusting to look at. I don't clean it with harsh chemicals, usually just a wipe down with a magic eraser bath cleaner. Time for a new caddy. It won't be this one again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our shower needs! Fits a lot of items and it's nice and sturdy. Easy to put together. Just remember to twist the top pole into the spring for resistance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not impressed Bought this product about 8 months ago, fits nicely in the shower. Noticed the other day that its starting to rust. Not such a great bargain after all. I would give it 10 stars if it wasn't for the rust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best of its kind We got this hoping to add some storage into a small shower and were disappointed by the product. First, it needed more space than it seems to fit into the corner and could not fit on the ledge corner of the shower. Then, when it was readjusted the spring broke! It was flimsy from the start, weak metals and very bendy, but the loss of tension in the first day was a real shocker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than other shower organizers I've tried My husband and I recently bought a house and are constantly looking for ways to get organized. The first shelf I bought for my shower was one of those that attaches with suction cups to the side of the wall. This thing would come loose (usually in the dead of night) and everything would hit the bathtub floor and scare the heck out of me! I found this shelf system on my first visit to the container store, and so far I am very pleased with it. It comes with four shelves and I only used three, which is still plenty. It also comes with different size poles, so you can mount it from floor to ceiling, or from a shelf in the tub (mine has those built in ones). It was also very easy to put together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent purchase 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusted Didn't fit well in our shower, as there is a slight curve to our ceiling. Pole rusted and just looks awful after a year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! I purchased this organizer based on previous items through The Container Store and it was a huge mistake. The price was high to begin with but if it works and lasts I was willing to deal with the price. However, the instructions are horrible and make absolutely no sense. After putting it together and taking it apart many times (again based on the horrible instructions) it would not stay up. Every time I tried to "tighten" the top spring load to the ceiling it would shrink down and fall. I am returning it and will not purchase another bath organizer from The Container Store.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Forma® Stainless Steel Tension Pole Shower Caddy I was really disappointed with the finish on this. Brushed metal, with a lot of rust discoloration. I doubt the finish will hold up for long, but I'm using it in a short term situation, so the practical use of it is fine. It was easy enough to install and will serve it's purpose, as needed. Keep your expectations low.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soo handy This is an easy way to put extra storage in an apartment shower without making marks or holes in the walls. My college sophomore put this together with only minimal frustration and it was very sturdy and will allow her to keep all of her "necessary" items in the shower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Will this work in my shower?

Our ceilings are 9 feet tall. Will this produce enough tension to stand in our bathtub/shower? The bottom would be on the bathtub.

How do I extend the length of the top pole? This is not included in the assembly instructions.

Asked by: Helen503
The top pole of our Forma Tension Pole Shower Caddy is adjustable up to 15" in length and locks into place. To adjust the length, twist to top portion of the pole counterclockwise to release the locking mechanism. Adjust the pole to the desired length and re-tighten it by twisting it clockwise to reengage the locking mechanism.

Will this adjust to 5 feet 7 inches?

Asked by: JLBL
The minimum height for the Forma Stainless Steel Tension Pole is 72'', therefore it is not compatible with your needs. Please view our Product Recommendations for an alternative solution.
