Rated 4 out of 5Â by TheFixerPerson NOT adjustable but...
Claims to be adjustable - was mis-sold this as replacement riser rail so I wouldn't have to drill a new hole. Got it home to find the shower holder is adjustable, but the riser rail is a fixed height. So had to return it.
However, if drilling holes is not an issue, for the price it appears to be of a reasonable quality, and look nice enough. Not sure if holder is strong enough for a large multi-function shower head as never got that far to test it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Matster Okay as a quick fix
We had a Triton riser rail break at one of the fixings, as water had got at the screwhead and in the end it broke the plastic housing.
I bought this Swirl model as it seemed to be well reviewed. In my mind I was optimistic that although it was a different length to the other rail I'd be able to swap the metal rails. Unfortunately this wasn't to be as the Swirl one had a smaller diameter.
Fixing the riser rail was a fairly easy task, although its easier with someone holding the rail in position to help mark out and to also fix into place. It is an okay shower riser rail but not great.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the metal pole is a darker colour to the plastic chromed ends and the shower head holder. Also the head holder can still slide on the pole when fully tightened and it is very close to the wall so the hose pushes the head upwards if there is too much pressure coming through the shower.
One last gripe is that the chamber inside the plastic ends doesn't allow water to drain until it is up to the screw head so make sure you use stainless screws, a slight change in the moulding would solve this!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Sandman2 Poor riser bar
The main problem with this riser is that the shower head holder is only height adjustable up and down the bar, but NOT adjustable to direct the spray. This means that the spray will only be directed where the head is fixed to spray, depending on the shape of the head. My one curved such that the spray direction was too close to the wall. This was no good at all. Also, the riser bar is only 19mm and appears flimsy, and so it is a case of you get what you pay for here. It is cheap because it is low quality and not any good, so I would avoid. I returned mine and Screwfix were great - no quibble refund.
