Need robe/towel hook for frameless shower

jewelisfabulousMarch 20, 2014

It seems there is one robe/towel hook design out there, and it's ugly.

Does anyone have a website of frameless shower hardware to recommend? I'd really like to hang a towel or a bathrobe on the glass panel next to the shower door on my frameless enclosure.

Your only choice if your shower glass is already installed, is an over the top hook, or a Command Hook that sticks on. Those come in several styles/finishes, and if you keep a towel on it you won't see it. ;-)

Otherwise there are are several thru-the-glass ones that come in different styles and finishes, and you can switch them out as all the ones I found required a 1/2" hole. That hole needs to be drilled BEFORE the glass is tempered and installed.

Hi, Babka -- We haven't ordered our enclosure yet so all options are still possible. Where have you seen the thru-the-glass ones that come in different styles and finishes?

Sorry -- I just re-read and saw the link. Thank you. Those are the ones I've seen, too. I'm hoping someone here will know of a source for less contemporary/industrial looking hooks. :)

Here are some fancier ones. (Link below) Google searches for designer shower door hooks and you will get even more. My bathroom is contemporary and I really like the minimalist ones.

Our glass installer obtained one as part of the enclosure. Yes, a hole was drilled before heat treating the glass. It is a real convenience.

Not easily seen to but is upper left, near the door.

Thanks, fnmroberts! Your shower glass configuration looks amazingly like what I'll be getting. I see that you used the u-channel on the side piece and the piece on the front (which is where I'm planning to put the hook, too). It also looks like we have the same tub filler (Moen Brantford by chance?)

Jewel654 -

I'm not certain the model of our tub filler but it is Moen. When we updated the master bath we decided not to change the tile (housing market didn't justify the added expense) and because tile has been installed against the tub access panel we could not change the faucet. So, we ordered new handles and spout to fit the existing filler.

Our glass installer HIGHLY recommended the U-channel since we did not have a groove for the glass. We selected 1/2 inch glass for its' additional heft which added to his strong recommendation. Also note the small corner piece to secure the corner at the very top. In our opinion it doesn't spoil the look. No leaks. Good luck with your remodel.
