Delta Trinsic Towel Bar - 24-in - Matte Black is rated
Rated 1 out of
Very poorly designed
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have built houses using all delta products, but in this upper end house using delta towel bars, grab bars, etc. it is making me reconsider my choice of delta for fixtures. All of these accessories are poorly designed. I don't understand why other reviewers have not noted this. For example the Trinsic comes as 5 parts (two base mounting plates, two end pieces, and a bar). The bar fits in the end pieces, but the fit is sloppy (I installed several, all the same). I wrapped the male end with electric tap or used silicone caulk to keep them from rattling. The mounting plate takes two screws, one above the other. If they are not aligned perfectly plum the end pieces will scream MISTAKE from across the room. One sixty fourth off will show to the critical eye. This is a challenge when the screws are going into sheet rock anchors. The end pieces and the bar need to be align perfectly parallel to look right. A better design would solve all of this. I am not an engineer, but even I could solve this. Their other accessories that I installed were likewise poorly designed. The metal and finish are nice. They did get something right.
