These are very quick and easy to fix in place with the supplied self adhesive pads which come prefixed to the back of the holder, so peel backing off and fix in place - as simple as that. They hold towels and tea towels extremely well which stay in place with no chance of them getting knocked off accidently. I have taken some photos showing the profile of the holders as mentioned by a previous reviewer and will try to upload them for potential buyers to get a better idea of the curved shape.
This little gadget does exactly what it says. Great for holding hand and tea towels in the kitchen and most important of all does not become unstuck!!! Would recommend it to all. I will definitely order more when I move house.
Very pleased with everything about this product. I was very interested to receive it and see it 'in the flesh' as the photo of it on Amazon does not do it justice. A picture slightly from the side would convey the curved shape better (I think they call it a 3/4 view) and a shot of one holding a towel (which it does extremely well!) would have been useful! The curved front is actually very pleasing to the eye and allows the corner of a towel to be 'dropped in' to the hole at the top with the aid of a finger while the slot that extends below the hole grips the towel.
The sticky pad fixing is amazing! I was sceptical at first as my small, shaped wall tiles meant that the fixing pad would bridge several quite wide grout lines where the adhesive would not contact at all.
Well, I am pleased to say that the towel holders are as steady as a rock after several days use. The 'give' that the 'spring effect' of the design provides cleverly relieves any direct stress on the joint to the wall.
I wanted some sticky hooks for my tea towels in the kitchen so I bought 2 of these. They look quite stylish, are good quality and the adhesive pad is very strong. I wouldn't use them for heavier towels though.
Had this way over a year now and its still going strong, and its been on tiles that arent flat so not all of the back is attatched to the wall, god knows how its still going. Looks alright, smaller than expected, but it does the job really well and doesnt get in the way like them stupid hoop ones.
I ordered this stainless steel towel holder a couple of days ago and it arrived well packed and very promptly in a couple of days. The directions were simplicity itself and it has already been pressed into service. It works fabulously well, the tea towel is easy to insert and grips firmly without the risk of tearing. It looks very good and I particularly like its curved lines, simple and extremely effective. The adhesive pad is a good size and adhered perfectly on the side of my fridge having prepared the surface beforehand as there was some residue left from the previous grip. When I move I will certainly be buying more of these stainless steel towel holders because they would look great and be perfect for my bath towels. Previously I always used plastic towel grips which all lost their sticky pads quickly so they are now a non-starter thankfully. Top Marks Amazon.
