DO NOT BUY !
20 Nov 2014
By CGS1

" DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
The wall fixings are CHEAP metal and do not provide a firm fixing. The grub screw distorts the fixing plate on first attachment, thus the rail will never hold in place.
Had it installed in my new shower, fell off on first use, now need to find replacement with holes in exactly the same places. I wish I had never purchased this.

Worst shower rail ever
30 Jul 2014
By Jollycolin
, Gloucester
" This is the worst shower rail ever, trying to affix to the wall was a nightmare, the Allen key grub screw doesn't hold it.
The shower head arm wont tighten enough to hold the shower head in position.
I damaged the shower head arm locking night trying to tighten it enough to hold the head in position, which it never did hold.
It falls off the wall every time you try to move the arm, as the grub screw system is useless.
Overall this item looks good in the box but never ever buy one, as like everyone else you'll take it back.

Worst Riser Rail Ever
24 Nov 2013
By annoyeddiyman
, Somerset
" Complete and utter rubbish, impossible to fit securely, rail is loose, shower head fitting will not stay at required angle, wall fixing plates are made from thin metal that distorts when tightening securing screws, fitting instructions give misleading measurement for fitting wall plates.
This item is totally useless and will be returned to Screwfix (something that seems to be happening all too often with goods bought from SF)

shower rail.

" Well where do you start, the actual rail is of reasonable quality, the looks are good too.
What lets it down are the fixing plates you screw to the wall, then tighten grub screws too.
To say built to a price, is an under statement. Very poor, cheep pieces of pressed stainless steel. "

Don't buy, it doesn't work!
15 Apr 2013

" The ball socket which can be adjusted to the alter the angle of the shower head isn't nearly tight enough, meaning the shower head weighs it down so it just droops against the wall- a terrible design fault making it entirely useless. A real waste of timing installing and having to take it back to Screwfix. Don't waste your time with it, it doesn't work. "

Very Poor

" The ball joint which couples the shower head holder to the riser is not strong enough for the job. The shower head just droops which makes the whole thing useless... "
