Sculpted 24" Towel Bar from the Forte Collection
Great looking, poor design
This is a great looking towel bar installed if you're going for a modern theme. However, this unit has two sections where the bar connects to the two end pieces, and our towels get caught at these points. It pulls threads from the towels and will ruin them over time. I'm going to try filling the gaps with a clear silicone to see if it will stop the problem. Should work. If you buy this unit, be sure to fill in the gaps. We're still happy with this purchase.

OK but not Great
For the price, I was expecting a better designed and sturdier product. When I received the shipment, I was surprised to find out that the bar rod consisted of 3 parts rather than one solid piece. The end pieces that joined the parts together did not seem stable. Once the bar was in place, it looked good though. However, when I hung my towel on the bar, the towel got snagged in the area where the rods came together.

Not very sturdy
The product has a nice look, however, the durability is questionable due to the design of the bar. It's not very sturdy. i was pulling the towel off the bar and broke the bar because the design is in threee pieces.

pulls threads on towels
I bought these to match the other Kohler fixtures in my master bath remodel. They look great and feel solid. However, I'm not happy about the design. The point at which the elbow of the towel bar meets the straight bar is constantly grabbing and pulling out threads from my towels. We're going to try to tighten the connection but not sure that's going to help eliminate the problem.

easiest to install
I loved the sturdy cardboard template that came in the packaging. This made it incredibly easy to center and level the towel bar exactly where I wanted it. Fit is tight, no wobbles. The product is a fairly heavy-gauge brass, not thin and cheap like some other towel bars.

Purchased 24" towell bar, paper holder and robe hook from the Kohler Forte' collection to match faucets and shower system installed as part of a bathroom remodel. Easy ordering, lower cost and good standard delivery time. All items delivered in excellent shape, no missing parts and detailed installation instructions.

Looks good but flawed design
I like to post reviews after we have used the product. We have used ours for 18 months now. This bath towel bar looks good and is easily mounted,and sturdy. But there is a design flaw. As others have pointed out, there are two joining sections along its length where it grabs the towel - this puts small tears in the fabric. I wrapped some transparent tape around the joints to protect expensive bath towels but it does not look good.For the price and Kohler name, I expected better.

Part of my Forte bathroom set
Sturdy when mounted properly, I had to go with the 24 inch due to wall space, would have preferred the 30 inch one, but all in all nicely built and matches the brushed nickel forte faucets etc i allready have. This company had the best price also.

Towel bar as advertised
This towel bar was purchased to blend with an older style in the same bathroom; it looks as pictured, which was satisfying. it installed quickly and easily, and is of good quality.
Also delivery was prompt, packaging better than necessary.

The Perfect Finishing Touch
I recently remodeled my master bath and had purchased Kohler Forte faucets, shower jets and shower trim. This towel bar is the perfect finishing touch. It is substantial and completes "the look".
