Goes up...AND down!
11 Jul 2012
By HickmanAndHicks
, Basingstoke
" This is amazing - it not only holds the shower head...but it allows said head to be raised AND lowered to different heights...what will they think of next?!
Put simply - this is a good product, great value for money and does exactly what it is supposed to do. I've installed quite a few now and will continue to do so. "

" Budget product which appears fine as a replacement. The element which holds the shower head is plastic and time will tell as to whether it is up to the job .... it's 50/50 at the moment. "

" Unfortunately this is made to a price, mine wont hold up the shower head properly and it eventually slips down the bar as the components are all lightweight plastics. "

Swirl tubular riser rail
6 Dec 2014
By Geoglow
, Maldon, Essex
" The wall fixings and the rail are OK but the shower holder is a big disappointment. It feels cheap and lets the rest of this kit down.
I would not buy this one again, purely because of this one item.

" This product looks and feels very cheap. The shower head holder feels as though it will snap off with the slightest twist. Will return and pay a bit more to buy a sturdier one. "

Swirl'n'slip
6 May 2012
By StuBob
, Leeds
" Have to agree with previous reviewer on this, yes its cheap (there's an adage here!)
the shower clamp slips continually and can't be tightened, also the clamp is too long for the stand off, so that you can't rotate the clamp sufficiently to align the head where you want it.
At £5 this would be £5 wasted ....

cheap and cheerful
9 Apr 2012
By davidwf
, suffolk
" The fittings were flimsy and for example the screw hole fixing was very thin which I felt would easily break.
Also the plating - at least on the one I had - was poor and uneven.
OK so it was cheap but I felt that's all it had going for it
Also noted the clamp did not exert enough grip on the tube and easily slipped down - and that was dry - I didn't even try it wet.
Sorry but I cannot recommend this product and took it back for refund and bought a Mira one.....5 times the price but rock solid and much better finish "
