Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kboy66 Very Pleased!
I overthink and research everything. No different here. I bought this because of the great reviews. The one negative that I saw was that it would not hold the shower head up properly. I took another viewers advice and tightened the screw inside the bracket and the problem was solved. This is a very nicely made unit. The all metal construction is a great plus. I am highly recommending this slide bar. For once, I made a good choice. I bought this through Home Depot and couldn't be more satisfied with their service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marymans So far so good
Product is heavy weight, presumably all brass. Working as is intended so far - only used one week. Handheld shower can be adjusted by height (obviously) and angle. Bought a Danze hand held which is also rather heavy and seemed to tip too far down and fall out of cradle when tilted, but tightening a screw inside the slide bracket seems to have solved that problem. Contractor installed so not sure how easy it is, but he didn't mention any issues. Happy so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gatekeeper Just what we hoped it would be.
Nicely finished with a clean look. Mounting hardware is first rare. Height adjuster works very well, a lot easier than a different one we have in the house that uses a knob.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TDogg Pretty good, but not perfect
Looks good, solidly made and functions well. Installation is a breeze, the only negative is that the finish does not appear at this time as it will be a long lasting finish. The item is less than have of any other shower bar we looked at, so this could be a drawback. We may still yet be surprised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lar Exactly as described
I am a contractor and appreciate the difference between low and high quality. This is high quality and I installed it in my shower. The bar and mounts are made of metal, not plastic as some of the comparably priced competitors products are. The kit comes with everything you need to install in a tile enclosure. I personally use better wall fasteners than what is supplied, so after receiving this in the mail I laid everything out to take stock of what else I might need. (this includes pre-reading the directions). I used white silicone on the inside edge of the mounts where it contacts the tile and wrapped the chrome outer finish with blue tape to limit the amount of silicone on the finish. (this can be removed later after it dries. I also put a small bead of silicone where the bar seats in the 2 mounting brackets. This made for an even firmer fit . Silicone is not required in the installation manual. Just something extra I did.
As has been pointed out by others: if you have a fiberglass or pvc surround that has limited backing you may need to get different fasteners. This does not however downgrade the rating of the product. Just take stock of the conditions where you are installing and provide whatever you need to be successful.
The latch for sliding up and down works great. The "U" shaped mount did not support the weight of my hand-held. Simple solution was to slightly tighten the Phillips head screw in the mount. Works like a charm now at any position.
Once I had everything I needed to install the whole thing took less than 30 minutes.
p.s. I also purchased (separately) a 96" replacement hose for the 60" that originally came with my shower head.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cd308 Excellent product
I was looking for a reasonably priced slide bar made of metal. Prior to this product, I bought a Delta, a Grohe, and two Speakman slide bars. The Delta and Grohe are mostly made of cheap plastic materia, and priced higher than this one. The Speakman bars are good quality but more than twice as expensive. I found this product when reading reviews on Amazon and bought from home depot because of the ease of return policy. I am not going to return it. It's made of brass, the one handle lock is very convenient, and looks great. You get all these at a decent price.
