Re: bath shelf

That looks very handy. Now we are trying to remember if we have that recess that you seem to have that the shelf sits on. That's a photo I missed taking. Have to go look. We have strong foil tape but I don't know that it would work.

Re: bath shelf

That looks terrific!
Where did you get the industrial strength mounting tape?

Re: bath shelf

I recall that the bath on 17 and 19 are almost identical so this should work in both models.

Re: bath shelf

If you aren't a woodworker, you can get this bath caddy, which attaches with suction cups.
Escape sells a set that includes several items ( best I recall ) including a toothbrush holder, shower head holder, clothes hook and the caddy.

Re: bath shelf

There's no ledge on the 17B, just mounted it to the vertical back wall. The "industrial strength" mounting tape is from Scotch...rated for 20 pounds.

I considered the suction cup plastic thingy, but wanted at least one touch of wood in the bathroom, and very fortunately have an acquaintance with better woodworking skills than mine. Am now considering some way of boxing in the drain pipe in this area to create a small storage area that doesn't get in the way of your knees.

Re: bath shelf

We tried 3 different suction cup thingys in the bathroom and were woefully unsuccessful in getting any of them to stay put

Re: bath shelf

Get some 3M double-sided tape and apply that to the suction cups. You might find them as round pads as well.

That's what I've used to hold my paper towel holder to the underside of the cabinet ( over the sink ) for more than four years, with no failure.
