24" Double Towel Bar from the Kingsley Collection
This piece is beautiful. Very easy to put up but you may need a second pair of hands. Our bath is somewhat traditional with modern edges, so this is just enough of both... not too stuffy and not to hard. We purchased 'Chrome' which has a nice finish. Also, when this was delivered, the rubber stoppers that go onto the end of the rods (prior to assembly), were missing (these keep the rods from spinning once installed). I called Faucet Direct and spoke to someone who would needed to contact the production house. Well, after 3 days and no word, I received an email stating that the stoppers were being sent in the mail! Great customer service!!!

Moving into a brand new home brought on subjects we hadn't anticipated -- like where to install all of the towel and toilet hardware. Luckily, there were websites providing information on height to hang, etc. However, so many of these new "luxurious" bathrooms fail to "leave space" for necessities like hand and bath towels! We had to decide on our own what looked best. The ones we bought from Faucet Direct worked perfectly and were much less expensive than special ordering from Lowe's or Home Depot. We bought the double rods to miniimize the number of bars needed in the bath. Again, we didn't want it to look like a jumbled mess inside an otherwise lovely space! They look great and function perfectly well.

The jury is still out . . .
I bought the Kingsley Collection bath accessories for my new bathroom. LOVE the toilet paper holder and robe hook. Not sure yet about the double towel bar . . . It swivels slightly between the two bars which causes the outer bar to fall out of its posts. My contractor has tightened it at the joint, but it is now happening again. I'm going to try to fix this on a more permanent basis, but we just always have to be careful when we are hanging towels. Not a huge deal, but frustrating. Otherwise, the quality of the finish and weight is great.

Double towel bar
Love this line. We have multiple fixtures in Kingsley but the double towel bar is not designed well. The end holders swivel and the second towel bar constantly falls out. Have tried to tighten it up but the bar still falls out.

unhappy with lack of quality
I'd like to see these (and many other products) made in 1 solid piece so they don't keep falling apart like this towel bar - sure it's easier and cheaper to ship in small pieces, the end result is a towel bar that falls apart everytime you use it. The allen screw is stripped from trying to tightening it so it stays together - very pretty bar, very non-functional. Will put on the shelf in the garage with all my other "easy to ship pieces" of junk that doesn't work.

24" Double Towel Bar - Kingsley Collection
I love the product and the consistent prompt service provided by Faucet Direct. It installed easily enough and looks great. I do have a problem though. One of the tiny screws that holds the rod onto the piece secured in the wall is stripped. That means that the bar is not tightly secured to the wall. I haven't done much about it because it is major thing to pull out the whole unit leaving huge holes in the wall. I can't get the tiny screw out. I also figure that the only way to fix it is to start over with a new unit. This is a small manufacturing defect that has big consequences. I have not contacted FaucetDirect about this and don't hold them responsible. I'm disappointed no less.

Falls Apart Daily
Defective design. Falls apart every time it is used. Our Handy (retired Engineer) could not get it to stay together after many inventive attempts. Just ordered the single towel bar to replace it. Oh, well.

Double Towel Bar
The bar looks elegant, and beats taking up wall space with two towel bars.
My contractor had to adjust it one the second day, because it kept falling apart. It's been two weeks, and all is good

High class towel bar
If you could ever call a towel bar gorgeous, this is the one! I chose the Kingsley collection for my bathroom remodel in the oil-rubbed bronze, and couldn`t be happier with it!
