Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by HappyCustomerHere Very nice quality with innovative design
This isn't your average run of the mill toilet paper holder - the bar pivots up to change out the roll. No more fumbling with the plastic tub squeezing and lining up the plastic ends. The solid metal has a durable feel and is nicely polished providing an elegant look. The installation uses two brackets you mount to the wall, then snap the holder into place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by dutchgirl Heavy duty item; need a drill to install.
In order to get this product up on your wall, you have to drill holes and depending on what kind of wall material you're working with (in our case cinder block) that may be challenging or it may be very easy for you. Once you've drilled holes and put in wall anchors, all you do is screw on the brackets (these and the screws come with the product), and the brackets have a small spring on which you then just latch the product in place. The toilet paper holder sits securely on the brackets and doesn't move around. If you so wish, you can remove the holder from the brackets by just lifting it up and off of the spring. The holder itself is of fairly heavy duty nickel, which I hope won't discolor or rust over time. It is very easy to put on a roll of toilet paper by just lifting up the bar, sliding on a roll and then clicking the bar back in place (see pictures). This product also has a matching towel ring and robe hook, which we also obtained and installed with the same ease (see picture).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by MrFixIt If only all bathroom hardware was this easy!
The Delta Amaya collection comes in numerous pieces, all meant to be installed concurrently in a bathroom. This review is a combination review for 3 of the Amaya pieces: The towel ring, the toilet paper holder, and the robe hook.
Right off the bat, the included hardware was a sign of a quality product. With each mounting piece came two solid wall anchors, perfect for any drywall application. As luck would have it, however, about 50% of my installations happen to be into studs. It would have been nice if there were also wood screws included for this purpose.
The spring method of attaching the fixture to the mounting plate is incredibly clever. It removes the need for a hidden hex screw underneath the fixture, and allows attaching of the fixture with a simple snap.
Having a template for the toilet paper holder (and towel rods) as part of the installation manual made the placing and drilling of holes effortless.
QUALITY & DURABILITY
While obviously not solid aluminum, these pieces are incredibly sturdy. The housing not only looks good, but also feels very solid. This is not your cheap aluminum extrusion. These are high quality cast pieces with an amazing finish that complement any existing brushed-nickel hardware in your bathroom.
I've a brushed nickel faucet and this set of bathroom hardware fits in perfectly. The design is sharp, resembling almost a "clawed foot" look with the wrapped bar effect in place. Very regal. The functionality of the TP swivel is novel and incredibly functional, making replacing toilet paper rolls a snap. However, being so wide means that a standard sized roll is never centered.
Not only is the set incredibly functional, but adds a very regal brushed-nickel look to the bathroom. Installation was a breeze due to good quality, great anchor design, and included templates. Highly recommended.

Very high quality. Matched the rest of the fixtures. The way you put in a new roll makes sense and keeps you from loosing a spring loaded one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Move14 Attractive Design, Easy Installation
I ordered not only this Delta Amaya toilet paper holder, but also the matching towel ring and robe hook. All three products have an attractive design and - yay! - finally manufacturers have improved on the horrible allen wrench design that caused so much frustration. It was so awkward with previous designs to get the towel bars or toilet paper holders properly mounted, and screwing that tiny screw in with an allen wrench was a total pain. Inevitably, the screw loosened and had to be re-tightened, or the product shimmied enough that eventually it pulled out of the wall and had to be reinstalled. Now, however, Delta has designed a mounting bracket that makes this a pain-free installation process. It is so simple to drill holes for the anchors, screw in the mounting brackets, and click the product onto the brackets. Plus, when I decide to paint the walls in the future, I can pop the product back off, leaving the mounting bracket in place while I paint, and then quickly pop the product back on the bracket once the paint is dry. So easy!
These Delta Amaya products fit securely onto the mounting brackets, snug against the wall, and there is no shifting or wiggling. After several months, I've had no issues and they clean well and look great!
