Great product, but it has a shelf life
on September 2, 2012
I purchased this product from Bed Bath & Beyond, and it has performed well, lasted almost a full year, and the shower-door suction cup has remained fixed without falling off, not even once in that entire year. It's a great product, and I highly recommend it.
This product has a shelf life. What I mean by that, is that eventually the metallic "plating" that they put over the top of the aluminum handle will begin to flake off, chip off, and fall off of the metal underneath. The metal underneath is a pretty porous, rough metallic aluminum.
It's not pretty at all, and it's very tough to clean. Instead of the shower humidity and mold/mildew being evacuated by the squeegee, it now sticks to the rough, non-smooth aluminum handle and scraper instead.
It will work great, the locking mechanism is solid, the suction cup is strong and durable, but the thin "plating" over the top of the squeegee will eventually degrade, chip off and fall off. There's not much you can do about that, unfortunately.
