Combo shower door bar or towel hook?

I'm installing a frameless shower door and am debating between installing a combo towel bar/handle on the door vs a hook on the stationary glass perpendicular to the door. I get cold coming out of the shower it's nice to have easy access to my towel. I think the combo handle doesn't look as nice, but am worried that the towel would fall easily from the hook. There are also 2 kinds of hooks to choose from - one that needs a hole in the glass or another that just installs on the top edge of the glass. Thank you!!

Do you have the shower door already as that will make your decision easier?

RE: Combo shower door bar or towel hook?

No I don't have the door made yet. Since it's tempered glass I don't think you can drill holes in it once it's made. Thanks!

RE: Combo shower door bar or towel hook?

That was gong to be my point as from your post I was not certain of that but your a step ahead of me. As far as which to use I have no clue just wanted to make certain you knew about the tempering.

I just had another idea that I could have a knob pull on the other side of the towel bar. There's one that's 3/4" in diameter just like the towel bar. Anyone has one and can tell me if it's easy to use?
