Does this shower arm allow the water to spray straight downward?

I need a shower head that will spray straight down, not outward at an angle. I see from the description that the shower arm angle is not adjustable. Since this head flips four ways, if the angle is not already straight down can that be achieved by flipping the head to spray straight down will that cause it to spray out the side?

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 72 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by one great showerhead Another high quality product by Kohler. Instructions weren't all that the specific in my opinion, but I figured it out. Once I determined what the instructions were trying to explain the installation proceeded easily enough with no leaks. Looks great in my shower. Sure glad I decided on the brushed nickel model versus the plastic one. Expect it to last a very long time. Enjoy the flip feature for the 4 different spray patterns. Unique design. Hats off to Kohler R & D. Highly recommend this handheld showerhead. June 11, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Quality & The Best Customer Support We have been using our Flipside hand shower for a year and a half now. I have loved using it every time, such a great product, easy to use and it's been wonderful. Today the cradle piece that screws onto the pipe coming out of the wall developed a bad leak out of nowhere. It was spraying water all over our walls and ceiling. I immediately notified Kohler's Customer Service department via telephone, the lady I spoke with was very kind and she agreed to send out a replacement piece immediately. No questions asked, no problems. That was great customer service, I wish all companies were like that! Also the price at Home Depot was very competitive. Thank you Kohler and thank you Home Depot! June 8, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Some Issues Showerhead is great. Bracket that holds showerhead SUCKS (does not swivel or move at all in any direction), and the hose just will not relax and lay flat. This is the second time I've purchased this exact showerhead. First time, the hose was much nicer and the bracket that came with the showerhead did swivel. Also, first time purchase - instructions were included to remove water reducers for showerhead use with private well / low pressure situations. Those instructions are no longer included. April 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great shower head, but... We love the flip feature of this shower head, but the installation was not as simple as some of the others we have had. There are no instructions, and at first we had the hose on with the ends reversed. Also needed to fool with it awhile to get it to not leak. Mostly we were perplexed why this website offers this item for just a few dollars more than the exact same item that is sold without a hose!?!? Initially our rep at the local home depot ordered one for us and it came with the showerhead only (exactly the same, we compared the;m). The hose is an additional $100.00! July 1, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Showerhead Works good. Hose is actually clear rubber with metal stripes painted on the inside, But it looks good anyway. February 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kohler=quality I've yet to get a bad Kohler product. Always top quality. Normally higher priced than other brands with equivalent features, but I believe, worth it. Also, Home Depot's pricing on Kohler makes Kohler's high quality more affordable. February 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shower cradle broke No complaints about the actual shower, however after only 10 months of use, one side of the shower cradle broke off! Apparently, it's made of a cheap plastic material. I called the company and they were very good to send me out a replacement cradle without any charge or hassle. However, the replacement does not match the actual finish on the rest of the shower - even though the package states it should be the same. Also, the look of it is completely different than the original. I pretty much hate it. The replacement piece is very cheap looking and feels that way too. July 18, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by soso Cradle was cheap plastic, crummy instructions. Had to contactrl Koher to find out missing details. Fit my need February 16, 2016
