Shower Corner Basket
Mine works really well!!
Not sure if the other reviewers had a bad batch of suckers or more likely they had not installed it correctly.
I have had mine on the wall for 5 days now without any problems and it is filled with 5 reasonably heavy bottles.
Just make sure that the 4 suckers (2 smaller ones are not easily seen in the photo) are on a level corner of the wall. If you have smallish tiles you need to be careful that the suckers do not go over any grout lines.

Really useless product
Despite numerous attempts the basket always falls down after approx. 2 days. As too late to return will have to be used sitting on the floor of the shower until we can buy something that will function properly. Very disappointing for JL to sell something of this poor quality which is also quite expensive for what it is.

I have had no problems since buying this product a few months ago. It hasn't come unstuck once and holds plenty (shampoo, shower gel and toothpaste), making the bathroom look neater. I am very pleased with it. As usual with John Lewis, it's a good quality, sturdy item.

Total waste of money
Looks like it will do the job and easy to put up but unfortunately totally useless at sticking to the tiles for any longer than a couple of hours. Complete waste of money.

Doesn't do what it says on the pack
So hoped this would save having to get the drill out and put up a metal one. But the suctions pads don't do the job properly, even though they are checked all the time the shower is used the basket either slides down the wall or falls off completley. Got it to stay put for a while with one bottle of shampoo in it but it's large enough for three bottles. At the moment it's sitting on the wall empty, It's going to have to go back! First time I've bought a product from JL and not been happy with it.

It really sticks!
After having become utterly fed up with a rusty shower basket which screwed to the wall(and even the screws were rusty,after only ten months!),I turned to a suction variety one. I was very sceptical about it's staying power, but it's brilliant!
It's stayed thoroughly stuck to the wall, and has shown no signs of slipping. OK, it's only been about a month, but I'm converted. We have about four average sized bottles in it, and aren't particularly gentle with it.

I bought two of these and have had them now for several weeks. I was a little apprehensive about the idea of suctiion alone holding them in place, not least given the other reviews. But so far they have not fallen down - I occasionally have to tighten up one of the caps, but the basket stays up with 3 suckers (there are four altogether) so this is not a big problem; I check the suckers whenever I have my daily shower. Quite easy to put up; my only tip to prospective buyers is that you need to get the surface REALLY clean first. I like the fact they are all plastic; makes keeping the shower clean so much easier.
Not perfect but good value for the price.

Suction doesn't last
Looked promising when it arrived but sadly the suction cups do not last. Had this for barely 12 weeks now and it keeps starting to fall off the wall. Poor quality. Going back to vendor for exchange. Expect better quality from JL.
