Incredibly over priced junk
on June 12, 2013
I am a manufacturer who uses extrusions and die cast parts and who also owns a powder coating company so I feel very confident in making the following observations. The actual cost of the components, finishing and packaging is somewhere is the low $7.00 dollar range for this product. No more no less. The steel tubing is incredibly thin walled, the finish is inconsistent from one Venetian Bronze product to the next and will not stand up over time and scratches very easy. They cut every corner they could in order to produce a low cost product which as described by others is not engineered correctly. It would rate higher if it was priced in the low $20's MSRP but it's not. Delta it seems is intent on selling cheaply made products for a premium price hoping consumers will not know the difference. Shame on you Delta as most consumers don't know what I know about how your products are made.
This product is indicative of buying on line. Good pictures but not much in specifications or quality standards for the product.
Do yourself a huge favor and stay away from Delta and such companies who don't embrace quality, craftsmanship or value for your money and perhaps they will someday raise their standards which are currently very low.
