Re: bath shelf

We have not used suction cups in the bathroom but we put a drop of water on the ones for the TV mirrors and they never come off even in a few days.

Okay, scratch this. I just realized that our suction cups are kind of double ones and are tightened up with twist knobs. Not the same. Tape would be better.

Re: bath shelf

Although I haven't put one in the bath, yet, I do use similar boxes made of bamboo. They are available in various size and the prices are very reasonable at The Container Store and Bed, Bath and Beyond. I used different sizes together to make a shelf I put on the wardrobe counter in our 17B. I store it while in transit and put it on the wardrobe when parked. Works great for a bunch of little things. They are fairly light so I'm sure they would stick with the heavy duty tape.

Well...the Scotch "Industrial Strength" tape didn't hold, in spite of being rated for 20 lbs. I didn't have anywhere close to that weight in the shelf. It stayed with the wood, but came off of the fiberglass. May need to find some of that 3M VHB tape, but I'm a little concerned that their collateral says it forms, in essence, a "weld". Not sure I want THAT permanent of a bond! Anybody have any experience with the VHB tape?

If it makes you feel any better, my suction cup sundry basket fell off the shower wall, dumping most of the contents into the toilet. I had had the lid up when adding antifreeze.
I think I'll just go back to using the sink for sundries.

It would appear, since your shelf is so high, that you could use one or two small screws, predrilled first to add strength to your attachment, I doubt water would effect it where it is located.

Hi: santacruzer... Check out LePage No More Nails Mounting Tape.http://www.lepagenomorenails.com I mounted our mirror on the outside of the bathroom door over 5 yrs. ago and it's still there. Just make sure it's positioned right as there's no second chances with it!!! Alf

Difficult choice...hole(s) in the wall or a permanent tape installation. I've been trying to follow the advice (Rease's??) to go a year before drilling too many holes, maybe I'll try it again with more of the industrial tape. Initially I only used four attachment points. And I'll keep only plastic bottles, and will keep the lid down. At least the latter will please the lady friend!
