Need A Good Hack For Handheld Shower Holder.


Client bought home with a walk-in tub (as seen on tv). I need a solution to hang the handheld on the wall so they can use it as a shower. I don't think the typical brackets will work for aiming and holding up in actual use.

I'm thinking about surface-mounting a 1/2" threaded flange, and using an actual shower arm. How hacky is that? Got any better ideas? It's really nice tilework, too.

I like the Euro style bars that are height and angle adjustable.

Thanks. Yeah, I did that and didn't quite find the solution. I need adjustable aim and wider neck opening. Lot's of those are too narrow.

I'll probably go with the sliding bar. I forgot about those.
