Kohler k-8524 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Escutcheons The Escutcheons were missing from the box and as a result I had to have them installed without them. The bar still looks great but I would have liked the escutcheons - however they are not critical and NO ONE NOTICED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo -- all metal (yeah) At a time when fixture companies think plastic is somehow better, here is a slide bar that is all metal! So hard to find and of really good quality. It is simple enough to match about any other fixtures in the bathroom and you can get inexpensive trim kits to match other kohler produces. I've seen plenty of complains about the clips giving out on other brand,s but after a month or more of use, the clip seems to stay in place and seems like it will have good longevity. Having returned an almost all plastic, very expensive Grohe slide bar, we are very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spendy, but worth it. As a profesional plumber for 35 years, experience has taught me that a premium price does not always mean a premium product. In this case it does. This shower bar will probably out last the shower it's installed in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The screw to attach the shower hook to the rail is made of a plastic and tend to break off. It needs to be made of a stronger metal. Not recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from K-8524 slide bar simple but elegant style, slips occasionally -- haven't checked to see if it can be adjusted.
