30 Inch Towel Bar
Unfortunately, big box stores don't seem to carry towel bars longer than 24". I needed a 30" towel bar to replace one of a similar length. I had to buy a 24" bar set to get the mounting brackets and then special order just the 30" bar itself. The good news is that buying the 30" bar was the bargin of a lifetime. The cost for the 30" bar was less than $8.00 and The Home Depot paid for the UPS (or was it FedEx?) shipping. This was a great deal that allowed me to properly replace my old towel bar.
Easy way to get a longer towel bar
This is a great way to get a longer towel bar than the standard 18" and 24". Just purchase any 18" kit (by any manufacturer, so long as it has a 5/8" bar), and replace the bar with this one! Note that not all manufacturers have "oil rubbed bronze" which look the same, so the color may not match if you don't pair it with another Moen product--but even if it differs slightly, it will likely look like a nicely-coordinated pairing. We have ours up with a Delta Windemere set, and it looks great!
I was looking to replace a 24" towel bar, but needed just the bar and not the rest of the hardware. I went to a local store where they had a solid brass bar for $150.00. I checked Home Depot on-line and found exactly what I was looking for. The best part was that it only cost a total of $6.19 including tax and shipping! Of-course, it wasn't solid brass, but that's not what I wanted anyway. Needless to say, I'm very happy with the purchase.
