Aftermarket Soap Dish for Shower Slide Bar?

Posted by kashmi (My Page) on

We were going to use our existing Grohe shower components in our new bath, but came into an unexpected small windfall and purchased the Kohler DTV system, new shower heads (fixed & hand-held) and slidebar. Now we find that Kohler does not make a soap holder that attaches to the slidebar. We just assumed that everyone made such an item.

We could buy a "free standing" soap dish and put it in the shower niche, which is at the other end of the shower stall -- about 65" long. But we'd really prefer a soap holder on the slidebar, because it keeps the soap from getting soft and mungy,

The Grohe soap dishes fit either a 1" or a 1 1/8" slidebar; our Kohler is 7/8" in diameter. The folks at the local Kohler showroom which also sells Grohe say that we can't fit one on the other.

Does anyone know of a company that makes these or of some way to retrofit a Grohe 1" dish onto a Kohler bar (model 8524).

Thanks in advance for the ideas.

Take a look at Danze D466000 wire shower baskets. D466000 fits two different Danze slide bars, one of which is 1" (the Versa slide bar).
