Things to keep in mind when choosing your install location: Always ensure your Tinker Towel Bar will be mounted securely. Do not mount your Tinker Towel Bar directly above a seating area or anywhere a person could easily bump their head. The Tinker Towel bar is not designed or should ever be used as a grab bar intentionally or otherwise. It is designed to hold bath towels or clothing items only.
Double check the width of your towels are proper for the width of your Tinker Towel Bar. We currently make our bars to fit up to 33 inch wide bath towels. Keep in mind that we recommend 2 inches minimum between each bar at the end curve of the bar loop to allow sufficient air circulation to dry your towels quickly.
