You need to unscrew the suction cup, you will be left with 3 pieces: the main unit, the suction cup, and a hard plastic "dome" piece. You must attach the suction cup to the surface first and alone, pressing it down firmly. Then put the plastic dome on, the outside edges of the dome will press on the outside of the suction cup preventing air from getting in. Then screw the main unit on.
If you do it the proper way, the cup will hold forever, and probably even hold several pounds (but of course do that at your own risk!).
Anyhow, on to the rest of the review. It works and looks great. It sync'd time within about 5 minutes of installing the battery (I'm in Canada). The numbers are large enough to read accross a small room like a bathroom. I don't need to use the buttons on the back at all, but they are hard to see without removing the main unit. I guess if you remembered which button you need (by counting across from one side) you could reach around and use them. I also don't get too much water on it, it's mounted high enough that it barely gets a few drops on it. But it seems to handle that and the steam just fine.
This is a great clock and I'm happy with my purchase!
The first time I turned it on, it took a few hours to sync with the atomic clock signal. The manual says that it does this at least once a day, usually at night when the radio signal is stronger. The time can be manually set too. But I just waited, and it was on time by sunrise, and has been on time ever since.
I was concerned about whether it would be sufficiently waterproof, but it is built well, and it's been in the shower for a couple months without any water issues. The suction cup also works very well, and it is still sticking to the tile after 2 months. It seems strong enough to survive a good drop, should it ever happen.
Note: To get it to stick to the shower, make sure to clean the tile until it is very smooth (this keeps the vacuum from escaping the suction cup).
Overall, this has made my morning routine much faster, since I don't lose track of time anymore. Very satisfied.
It will set up the time by the NIST time radio wave if it can receive it. You do have to put in the battery and set up time zone and stuff to get it started.
Our shower is in the basement and the clock has a hard time getting the signal. I stick it on a window upstairs when daylight savings time swaps to get it to resynch.
It is not waterproof if the front face comes off, like if it takes a fall from the wall.
Don't use the alarm function but it'd be hard to get to the buttons while it's stuck on the wall.
For those that are having a hard time getting it to stick to smooth (tile or mirror) surface in the bath, the trick is to screw the clock down onto the base, not just pushing the unit onto the wall. If you just push it, it will stick but come off in a day or so. The real gripping comes from cinching it down by screwing the clock body down onto the base while the it's stuck on the wall. This tightens the suction down dramatically. It's held on my tile shower wall for years. It takes couple of turns, and you just stop it when it's tight and straight up.
Keep the instruction manual for those times you want to manually set things. Ken-Tech is Chinese and not online with manuals. And yes, it is not at all intuitive on how to adjust the thing without the manual.
If you plan on putting it in the shower, just get the tile moist and let it stick for a day or so before taking a shower. Or put something soft underneath it in case it falls. I put it up on my shower wall...while showering...which was a pretty stupid move. I tightened it down pretty tight, and about 30 seconds later (just long enough for me to shift my attention away from it) the thing pops off and smashes into the tile floor. The alarm made a final scream as it slipped into unconsciousness and now it's a paperweight. I think blame at varying degrees lie in water splashing at the brim of the suction cup, the incredibly wet wall, and my slippery hands unable to tighten as tightly as if dry. The suction cup is a gnarly behemoth...I don't think it would have fallen had I used a little more common sense

Good sized digits, keeps time perfectly, and the suction cups are really strong.Published 3 days ago by dcDude
Cute clock. Read the directions carefully though, because it's rather hard to set properly. It took a few times to get it to suction to the shower wall, but once it got a good hold... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Ally
Works great - you DO have to follow the directions as to how to work the suction cup (it's not like an ordinary one). Read morePublished 8 days ago by John J. Streyle
Bought this almost two years ago. It died today. It was a good clock but I could never get it to set in the correct time zone. It was always two hours off. I'll buy another though.Published 11 days ago by Drocker
It's kind of bulky for a clock. and the suction piece doesn't hold well. It should have a release and seal adapter/part in my opinion.Published 12 days ago by M83
The suction cup doesn't work but the clock itself is fine. I have a shower rack that I rest it on, so that is fine, but I wish it would work with the suction cupPublished 17 days ago by Haley
