John Lewis 2-Tier Corner Basket, Small
Frustrating Saturday Morning
We were very pleased with our purchase, well made and a quality product. However we fully agree with previous reviewers over the mounting of our shower basket. It took the best part of a couple of hours not the 10 mins as stated in the instruction leaflet. We managed eventually to get the basket sitting on all 4 brackets. We now have to install one in our other bathroom so will be using only 2 brackets which as previously stated should be more than adequate with the very long screws provided.

Well made and atractive unit
Great product, my only negative observation is re regarding the mounting clips.
If trying to fix clips for both left a right of the basket then it is virtually impossible to then install tray onto the clips.
Chose to install basket with two clips only, both on the same wall, ie one only for the upper and the lower tray . This is perfectly strong enough. If required the two other mounting clips could be simply clipped to the unit without drilling the wall. In doing so the clips would appear to be fixed and the unit visually balanced. I didn't bother and all is perfectly ok

Poor fixing 2
The reason that I chose this item was that I had bought the same product a few years ago. The previous model had a straightforward set of 4 holes in the frame set just above the basket on the wall sides. It was very easy to fix. This new fixing is over-complicated and took me a lot longer than the 10 minutes stated on the instruction leaflet. I agree with the comments in the previous review (poor fixing) and am amazed that no-one else has encountered the problems that we have. A template would be usful. Or else go back to the previous design. Really don't understand why 8 long screws are required unless the bracket is used to swing from while taking a shower!

As a piece of shower furniture this 2 tier tray is fine, however, the method of securing it to a wall is one of the worst I have ever encountered. There are 8 holes to be drilled (why 8? it's a small shower tidy, it has no weight itself and will not have to hold anything substantial for heavens sake)! To make the fitting even more difficult it is absolutely essential that all brackets are precisely placed in relation to each otherwise the tray will not locate on them.
I am no slouch when it comes to DIY but this taxed me no end. I only used the top two brackets - more than adequate I found.
Lovely item but lousy, lousy fixing

My original purchase was faulty i.e. top tier sheared off when attempting to fit it. Returned item to my local store and they immediately replaced it. No further problems and I am delighted with the design and appearance.

This was just the right size for my wet room and holds everything I need it to plus a really useful little hook to hang things on.

Super shower basket.
Wow- an absolutely superb product! Expensive- yes, but the quality of this item shines through and through. When fixed in pace with the 8 screws provided, it's completely welded to the wall- no more knocking into flimsy baskets, spilling the contents across the bath.
The basket looks great and has a lovely shape- another nice touch is the movable hanger that can be postioned where you please or not used at all.
All other shower baskets I have used before look and feel cheap and nasty and have discoloured and rusted- the ones with suction cups always end up dropping off and the suckers stained. This basket has been in a shower in constant use for a couple of months now and still looks brand new.
I would definitey recommend this item- in fact I'm about to buy another one for the shower room!
