The Best for Universal!
One of the best universal handheld showerhead holders I have found! Had to replace my showerhead and handheld model after a great run.. unfortunately, the holder for the handheld unit (Moen) for the new set was a terrible design that kept falling off of the wall of an acrylic shower.
I went looking for a good universal one and after trying three others (one bad adhesive, one not large enough to hold the handle, one snapped after two days of use) I gave this a try based on the rating and reviews that were received on the product. While at first I had my doubts (it obviously is a chrome filmed lightweight plastic holder) I am so glad I did - the suction on this sucker is incredible, requires no additional adhesives and can easily be taken off for cleaning or moving at any time with no issues of reattaching. I really like the adjustable holder portion as you can angle, turn and swivel to have the shower head any any position desirable. There is the hook but I am not sure why it would be advertised as a "towel" hook - anything you hang there is going to get wet, so I use it to hang a back brush on and it holds the weight of that and a large, oversized shower head well. I'm not worried about the plastic material because as long as it sticks to the wall and doesn't fall, there should be no dangers of it breaking.
Some hints though when utilizing this to make sure it sticks -
1. THOROUGHLY clean and dry the surface that you are going to stick it to. Suction is critical and if you have soap scum, mineral deposits, etc. on the surface this eventually will loosen up and fall off as air is able to work it's way through gaps created by this stuff.
2. Mount on a SMOOTH, UNBROKEN surface - If your surface has any sort of mottled, raised characteristics (such as some older tile surfaces have) this won't work. Also, mount it in the center of a 4x4 section of tile - don't put it over grout lines (air can leak in) or any sort of crack. If you have smaller than standard 4x4 tile, this probably won't be the holder for you...
3. TIGHTEN the screw by hand securely - if it is loose or not good and tight, air might leak in.

While I am satisfied, I can't give 5 stars because
I have had it for almost a week. The suction cup is holding to my tile well so far (I have very smooth porcelain tile). While I am satisfied, I can't give 5 stars because: the chrome finish is very cheap looking, my shower sprayer doesn't fit fully in the holder (only the very end of the tapered handle is narrow enough to fit in the opening of the holder), and the "directions" were very confusing. Thankfully, they weren't really needed as assembly was pretty straight forward.
on 2017-10-22 Exactly what I wanted. Very adjustable. Excellent suction.
This was just what we were looking for. I'm using it with a Moen Magnetix Showerhead
and it fits great. Perfect for my 60yo daughter to use for showers.
This has only been up for 1 day but I doubt it will fall off with how much suction is holding it on to the glass. I'll definitely update this review if it ever falls off though.
It looks nice enough, even if it is obviously plastic, and the hook is really nice for hanging a loofah on.
Lastly, it is really nice that the angle is very adjustable. I can set it so far down that the water is going straight down. I have it set tightly at a specific angle but you could leave it looser if you want to be able to tweak it as you shower.

Works but inadequate instructions provided.
Worked fine for us but instructions are a little confusing. Different model shown in the instructions w/o hook. Hook and it's use to set the suction tight is not shown or mentioned. Received a 2nd "Adhesive??" disc which I did not use. What is it for? Didn't need it for secure mounting on (4'x4')tiled wall. Need better instructions especially showing hook and it's use in making the holder secure by rotating it.

Terrible shower head holder
Husband had trouble getting it to stick to the wall. There is nothing to help keep it positioned. The ball that the shower head holder is on is way too loose. When balanced so that showe head points down, you can't get an angle on it, causing the head to point straight down. We are not confident it will hold on the wall. The company also sent the wrong instructions for installation. We got an instruction slip for a different model. I'm not confident.
Update: fell of the wall. I want my money back and for this thing to go in the trash.

Works well, and has stayed up just fine.
I was skeptical at first, because I don't have much luck with things that are supposed to stick on and stay. Also, this is pretty cheesy feeling plastic and I was afraid it might break. I waited for several months to write this review, and I am happy to say that the bracket is holding up well and staying up. The opening is a little narrow, but the metal hose on my handheld shower just squeaks through it, so it works for me. As a short woman, I appreciate not having to stand at the back of the bathtub to avoid being drowned by the shower spray.

Nice hanger, great price !!
Nice, sturdy hand held shower head hanger. This is the only one that I found to accommodate a 1 inch hose coupling.I utilized the sticky tape on a fiberglass shower wall and it is STUCK there.

This item is a useless piece of junk. Its plastic and the actual handheld shower holder part has a rotating plastic ball beneath it. When one places the handheld into it the plastic ball allows the holder part to flip upside down which slams the shower head out and into floor of shower.
Poor design, completely unuseable plus Chinese direction appear to be For different model. It was difficult following tiny drawings or even tinier translation. I have been ripped off. Had to purchase another one from another vendor made of metal.

Good product for my short wife. She couldn't reach the one that came with the hose that connected to the wall outlet. Installed this one about one foot lower and she loves it . Maybe I'll get lucky since I made her happy. Lol

Shower Hose Holder (Heavy)
Sadly, this item kept falling off the ceramic tile in our shower. It seems to be too heavy and the adhesive didn't hold. The metal holder is heavy, so with the added weight of the shower hose, it didn't hold.
