Clawfoot Tub Shower Enclosure - Oval Ring, 30 x 60 Frame - Randolph Morris
Wider shower enclosure
I have a Sunrise riser and shower enclosure but the curtain rod is only 24 inches wide. Since with this setup the shower curtain feels claustrophobic I ordered the 30 inch Randolph Morris rod. It was the only one I could find that was wider. Unfortunately the Randolph Morris rod is one inch diameter and the Sunrise riser is a smaller diameter so we could not make the connection. This means we had to add extra rods to stabilize the riser. The Randolph Morris enclosure is not well designed where the two parts come together and tends to sag at the middle of the enclosure. Finally it took me three phone calls over a two weeks time to get the rod delivered with a different excuse for the delay each time. I did think the person answering the new orders phone was very knowledgeable about parts when we discovered the two different pipe diameters.

Shiny, but not too much else
When i received this shower ring it came with minimal instructions and a few dents in the main bar. Now i could have returned it, but it took weeks to even deliver and i have been working on this bathroom for a while. So i just needed something to put up. What i received would have been acceptable for around 100-150 bucks but as you can see that it costs much more than that. The way this thing is constructed is there are 2 main tubes that fit together in the middle with a metal shim that you put inside of the tube and jam the other tube on that. I'm not too well at describing the process but what you end up with is a weird seam right in the middle of the tube assembly. there is nothing that goes over this seam. if there was it would get in the way of the curtain but since there isn't anything there at all it looks cheap, which this thing is not. When all is said and done this does it's job, and will work. but i don't believe what i got was anything close to be worth what i paid for this.
