Umbra Bungee Over the Door Towel Rack is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenious Design! This is an ingenious design. I love it as it keeps my towels hung neatly without taking floor space. The towel bars are adjustable and hold their place. This is easy to install. I used some clear bumpers behind the mounting brackets at the top of the door, only because they exert more pressure than the bottom bumpers and want to protect the finish of the door. I had enough clearance/gap at the top of the door between the door and the door jam so it did not pose a problem closing the door. I also was able to place the top of door mounting brackets around an Umbra Schnook multi-hook which I am using on the inside/other side of the door to hang things from. Luv it, especially at the sale price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bungee rack It is functional but does not look good at all. The width covers most of a regular sized door, and it just looks like elastic cords. Since it is so wide, there is no way to avoid the cords hitting the door knob

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea but doesn't quite work The bungee cords are strong. They pull the over the door hooks downwards which makes them tilt up not allowing the door to close. I attempted to adjust a hook but it broke in half! I ended up using two screw in hooks at the top, but kept the door hooks on the bottom. The problem with this is the bungee cords are up against the door at the top, but an inch or so open at the bottom. I liked the idea for organizing towels, but this product left me frustrated. This product should be tested for real usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bungee door towel holder. We are transitioning from home to RV and I was not happy with the over door towel racks, we found this and bought one and loved it. The next day we bought another one. The one for the bathroom doubles as a toilet paper holder. Any space saver is a God sent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great clever solution This turned out to be a great purchase. We need extra towel hanging capacity in the guest/kids' bathroom without having to install a bar on the wall. We like that the bars adjust so that our 7 year old can hang his towel low and someone else can use the top bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of My Favorite Things!!! I have had this for 4 years now. It is hanging on the door to my walk in closet. I use it to drip dry my lingerie. No more clutter in the bathroom or drying racks in my living room. I use it every week. LOVE IT. I'll be giving it as gifts to my family for Christmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good solution for tall doors I've always been a fan of over-the-door hooks, racks, etc. But when I moved into my new house, which has 8-foot tall doors, I could no longer use my over-the-door towel rack for anything more than the bottom rung. This was a perfect solution for me! It stretches to fit the giant door, but is adjustable so I can reach the towels. I'm very happy with this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever Space Saver I bought this for my son's dorm room. It was installed in a snap. It will not work well for heavy towels like beach towels but for your average bath towel, it's an excellent solution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh. Looks great on display at the store, but it is the only thing that I haven't loved from the Container Store. Looked too "dormy" but if your purpose is a dorm room and not a stylist condo, then this might work for you. Was hard to install. Not a lot of room for towels. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Renters This towel rack is perfect for our apartment. We are unable to put holes in our wall to hang racks, shelving, etc. so this works perfectly. Couldn't be happier with the design and ease of installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I have a small bathroom and this is a huge space saver! My children use the two lowest bars and I use the top. Price was great and I love the way it went up (no tools!). Fantastic product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver for small and popular bathroom I installed this (easily!) in our small downstairs bathroom that is unfortunately my sons' place to shower in the morning. Now the boys can see their towels and I can replace the used towel onto a rung, and save having to wash it for another time. It's great for the person who moves frequently, or anyone with a small bathroom who wishes for a place to hang towels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't have done it any different... I love this bungee overdoor towel rack. I have them on all of my full bathrooms. They help if you have towels for display purposes only and need something that is functional, yet out of sight and out of the way. My Dad liked it so much, he had me purchase one for his bathroom! LOVE IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative, Fun Organizer This Bungee Towel Rack is one of my favorites: it's a one-size-fits-most doors and a great space-saving solution! Not only is it useful, but it's also kinda fun! I really like moving the rods up (or down) the bungee cords. It can be easily mounted without any tools! It's the perfect upgrade from the regular over-door hangers with hooks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So convenient with multiple uses We're getting ready for a group of friends/family to visit, and we needed extra towel hooks or bars. This can be easily dismantled and stored. It's also great for hanging baby & toddler clothing and baby blankets and burp cloths so that they are easily accessible and visible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for RVs We bought this for our trailer and it is perfect! We had no towel racks and no wall space for a towel bar. This solved our problem and no holes had to be made in the door.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs better towel bars This could be a great product for more towel space....however, the towel bars constantly come out from the ends... so, you have to lightly touch the bars so that they don't come out from the ends. Kinda painstaking!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been great Great idea and it seems decently constructed. Unfortunately I cannot close the door with the rack on it. A redesign with a slimmer top might make this a must-have. Until then, I'll keep trying other brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from nice idea,but... Had to send back. Does fit over door,but cannot shut bathroom door. So beware in purchasing this product! Cost me half as much of this product to ship back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from container store to the rescue this was purchased for our new rv....we hang up our towels to dry since we have minimal laundry facilities when we travel...this will allow us to hang them over the bathroom door...we will not have to take it down when we travel!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome item This item is as fantastic as I wanted it to be. It was fairly easy to install. I say fairly only because I'm short and the top of the door is just a little to tall for me. I like that you can adjust the bars, and it will stretch to fit. I keep mine in the closet to hold the beach towels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Overdoor Towel Rack on the Market I have an old house that has thin hollow doors and couldn't find anything that would work in my bathroom. This is stylish and works perfectly. Have used other racks and they are bulky and bang door and walls when you move the door. Recommend to anyone that wants a great solutions and doesn't want to mark up there surroundings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This is a great idea if you never plan to close your bathroom door. I installed this easily over the door, hung my towels and shut the door. OUch. The hooks scratched up my brand new doorframe, as the door would barely close without effort. It's too costly to ship back for a return. To Goodwill it goes....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for standard door. Kids can't reach top rung. The rack did not fit our narrower door that leads to a bedroom, with the bungee type cord hitting the door knob. It did fit the standard door that led to the hall. But, we already had a towel bar on the wall behind the open door. The towel on the wall and the one on the door would squish up against each other and not dry very well. We had purchased it to help our smaller kids hang their towels up. When the rungs were lowered enough without having the towels hit the ground, the top rung was essentially useless.

How far does it stick out from the door?

I want to make sure it doesn't restrict the door from opening against the wall.
Asked by: Paulams
I show the towel bar side extends a bit over 2.5" from the surface of the door. Keep in mind that on the reverse side of the door from the towel bars, the hooks that are at the very top and very bottom of the door will protrude a little less than half an inch from the door's surface.

Can I add more rods?

We have four family members and would like for each to have their own towel rod. Can I purchase an extra rod separately to add to the cord? That way we will have four rods instead of three. Thank you!

Shortest Door Size?

What is the shortest door or cabinet height that this will work on?
Asked by: burkhall
The rods are completely adjustable up or down, and it should work on most cabinet doors. Keep in mind the product is 18" wide, so as long as the door is at least that wide, this product should work.
