Rated 5 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â by Capecodder Modern Look and Well Made
This is a well made toilet paper holder which turns with ease. Its a bit long so there is no way a big roll of toilet paper will have its ends squished. This toilet paper holder is a bit heavy and you can tell its well made which should last a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by EightOfEight simple, classic design
I am a big fan of the pivoting style of toilet paper holder, because one's dirty germy hands need never touch the rod that holds the roll. This holder is well made and the design is simple enough that it can coordinate with a number of different faucet styles. Installation is a breeze if one takes the time to read and follow directions.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jub1 Nice nickel finish, quality product
This holder is very sturdy. The nickel finish looks great and looks as if it will not discolor. The bar pivots to change out roll. Looks great with the whole set(robe holder, towel holder, long towel holder)
