Advice for those having trouble with it falling
on June 6, 2006
First, we've had ours up for several months now without issue, and LOVE it. It drains well, since it's hard plastic it doesn't mildew, stores the shampoo bottles, and his toes are great for hanging things (poofs, toys, etc).
BUT, you cannot allow the double stick tape to cross a grout line (or similar indentation, if you have a molded tub/shower surround). Doing so allows water/air behind the tape and it will lose grip! This could be an issue if you have small tile. It is possible to cut the tape so that it only attaches to complete tiles. Thankfully, my shower has 4" x 4" tiles so this was not an issue.
Hopefully that'll help someone!
Edit: Almost one year later - still holding strong! We've had no issues with it falling at all (and it's LOADED!). LOVE it!
And another edit (10/13/08): So, a year and a half later, our luck ran out. Last night our frog fell and scared the bejeezers out of me. Again, it was very fully loaded (the entire tub is now full of toys/scrubbies/shampoo bottles). Honestly, I'll be looking into options to re-adhere it. We love it too much to let having to re-hang it every couple years deter us from continuing to use it!
Edit 10/27/08: So, 2 weeks after it finally fell off the wall (2.5 years after we'd first hung it) - it's back up and thus far doing fine. I found a 3M Command product made specifically for "high humidity areas" (showers, etc) and decided to give 4 of those strips a try. So far, so good.
Edit 11/11/09: A year later it's still doing great with the 3M Command strips, and still keeping the tub toys organized!
Edit 10/19/10: 2 years w/ the 3M Command strips and it's still like new!
