Ever pull a shower head off the wall because of the shower caddy that was hanging from it? Ever scratched your tub or put a dent or hole in your ceiling with one of those tension pole shower caddies? Tired of having to adjust that tensioned shower caddy because it keeps falling over and making a mess? Just want something to hold all of your bath and shower products safely, durably and out of the way? Well that's what this is all about.
There aren't many 3D models here and I would argue they aren't needed for this life hack, but they do help.
The first model is a top cap for the top pole of the caddy. It tidies up the top of the pole, helps to keep water and soap from getting in and manages the wire rope.
The second model is for a corner clip that has 2 suction cups to help keep the caddy from banging against the wall or moving around.
What is needed for each Shower Caddy:
Yes, it's a lot of stuff for a Pole Caddy that you have to buy and are essentially going to ommit several poles and the crappy tensioner. I can tell you from my experience it's well worth the effort. At least in my opinion. Some of the benefits:
- There is no pole from ceiling to tub or shower floor.
- You can move the caddy out of the way to clean behind it.
- You can hang this anywhere you like (ideally in a corner) making more room in the shower or tub.
- If properly installed it's not going to come crashing down.
- It's not going to put strain on your shower head because its not hanging on it.
I may provide a step-by-step, but for now I'm going to post as is with the pictures. If your handy this is pretty straight forward. The most exotic tool used was a cordless drill which was used for drilling a hole through the bottom pole for the cleavis pin, a hole through the Aluminum Corner Bracket for the Carabiner to clip through and to drive the 2.5" course thread coated drywall screws into studs firmly fixing the Aluminum Corner Bracket to the wall.
The only other required tools is a Crimping Loop Crimper if you chose to go that route or a nut driver for the Cable Clip Clamps if you choose that route.
