Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by joet01 Nice Towel Bar, Lousy Drywall Anchors
Bought several of these towel bars for two bathrooms. They are nice looking but if you have to attach them into sheetrock the supplied anchors are useless. Most of them failed under minor force and I had to replace them with other more robust anchors. And if you are fortunate enough to land it on a stud then you have to supply your own screws! There are plenty of good anchors available, so why they provide these pitiful units mystifies me. Plus you have to drill a fairly large hole to insert them in the first place, but the holes in the plates for the screws are small so it's not easy to make it work with better anchors. They are holding in place for now, but if I ever have to pull them off I'll probably have to redo them. Also one side of the spring in one of the attachments broke during installation (and I wasn't applying much force) but the remainder of the spring was enough to (sort of) keep it in place. Anyway the anchors turned a small job into a project with mediocre results. Should have read the other reviews before buying these bars.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HandyLady Attaching with Quick Click is not secure!
What is this???? I have installed many towel racks in my home and rentals. However, I have never seen anything like this. Maybe I still don't know the installation proceedure, even after watching a youTube video by Delta. When I put this up, it was so difficult to attach the hook. Then with the slightest tug I lifted it right out of the bracket. So, what happens when you grab your robe off the hook in the wrong direction? Does the thing fall on your tile floor and break the tile? I bought enough of these for 3 apartments and now I'm stuck with inferior bathroom accessories that I can't use. What's wrong with a set screw that's located on the underside and doesn't show? Wish I know how to make these things work. What a mess!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaJAM Horrible installation Process
My husband and I have installed many towel bars in our lifetime. I have never had a problem before. First, the expanding wall anchors come with a flat tip rather than a point. That makes you have to drill a larger hole in order for it to be tapped into the wall. When we got them up - it stripped so much of the wall when the anchors expanded they were not stable. We wound up having to buy new smaller pointed-tip wall anchors which helped this problem. The new design where you have to slide the post onto the wire at the bottom of the bracket was a pain. We followed directions perfectly. I had them mounted in the correct direction and still the wire was too close to the wall in order to slide into the post easily. We wound up having to pull the wire a little ways out from the bracket in order to get the post on. By that time we had scraped paint around the area and had to touch that up and the mounting was wobbly. We bought for our entire new home because we had them in our last with the old design with a screw at the bottom of the post which was MUCH easier to install. Very disappointed. Taking back the ones that are still in the box!

If you are having trouble installing you probably have the latch on backwards. The top shouldnt be flush with the wall so turn it around...I made this mistake now its fine. Peace out.

I loved the look of this line of accessories so I began with the 24" towel bar, with plans to purchase additional accessories in the line as money and remodeling happened. I have two of them installed - did the installation myself.
I don't personally have a problem with the mounting bracket itself - I find it convenient not to have to get out an extra tool to take the bar off the wall if I want to repaint - but the screws and anchors that come with the bar are junk.
Initially they'll install fine and everything will mount up, but within a few days the anchors will come loose from the wall and with even moderate force (like a sufficient tug on a towel) you could pull the whole assembly right out of the wall. I found them to be more hassle than they were worth (I bent them trying to install via the directions) and used more conventional anchors and screws to mount the bar and have had no problems since then.
If you're lucky enough to have studs spaced 24" o.c., I'd recommend mounting the bar into the studs. If not, just pick up some anchors and screws on your way to the checkout - they're never a bad thing to have laying around your house for projects and they're pretty cheap.
I gave 4 stars because once I figured out the alternate anchors thing this bar became great. If you have those to begin with, this bar will be installed in maybe 15 minutes. (Less if you have someone to help you hold the template in place ;-) )

Recently remodeled my bathroom and purchased these towel bars. They are easy to install and really enhances my new bathroom.

Very confused by the install. Included hollow wall anchors and flat tipped screws. I wanted to install it in the stud, so thought I didn't need the wall anchor, but the flat tipped screw made it impossible to get into the stud, even when drilling a pilot hole. Ended up buying new screws to install it.

Click mount bracket system does not hold bracket end fittings tight to wall. Get one with an allen screw. Why did they try to reinvent the wheel? I fussed with it for an hour, trying adding tin foil, tape, still rattles against the wall. I'm stuck with it, as I drilled holes in the tile. Won't buy a Delta product, again.
