Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beachbum A terribly designed item
This is a waste of good money, due to such a poor design.
When mounted on the wall the slide cannot be rotated fully since the locking handle pieces will not fit between the wall and the slide rod.
The handheld wand will face straight out unlike most others that have a bend in the wand so they face downward at a slight angle.
Then as mentioned by others, the hose is a piece of garbage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carm1959 Great product!
This DOES NOT come with a plastic hose -- it comes with a very nice stretchable METAL hose.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ahrkkay Mediocre Product
Product arrived looking pretty good. Then, I began setting it up for installation; and, it's deficiencies became clearly apparent. First, no water supply fixture is sent as part of the package to connect the hose to the wall outlet from the shower. I had to purchase one from Home Depot for $27. Then there is the shower hose – an impossible-to-untwist, cheap, plastic, piece of junk that had to be replaced with a steel one which remains flexible – cost $76. Then there is the slide which allows the shower head to move on the bar. The locking device is difficult to access; and, because of it's design is inconvenient to tighten. Finally, the device that holds the shower head on the bar is not strong enough to hold the top heavy shower head in the desired position. If you're looking for a good-looking product that will ultimately cost you more than twice its original cost, is inconvenient to operate, and is constructed of poor quality, this is the product for you!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MsFixit Functional, good looking and easy to install.
We have installed similar Delta shower slide bars in several homes now. We have always been pleased with their quality and performance. This one too seems sturdy, looks good and can be installed by just drilling 2 holes for the slide bar. The clamping system does not slip when tightened. It is the perfect solution for different height users and for those who need to sit for a shower. The only small negative I found is the feel of the hand spray grip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grammykati Very nice adjustable spray
We got this because we were enlarging our shower to have room for a shower bench. This shower unit works well, standing or sitting down.
