Lahara 18" Towel Bar
Pretty to look at, hard to install
We really like the looks of this towel bar, but the installation instructions were somewhat lacking and confusing in certain areas. For example, how to measure so the bar ends up in the exact right place. The bar fit a bit loosely, so we added some tape to the end of it so it wouldn't rattle when you hang a towel on it. The set screw is mounted straight up and down, making it hard to tighten it with the hex key. You have to remove and reinsert the key with each 180 degree twist. My prior fixtures angled the set screw so that you could easily tighten it with just a few full circle twists.

Excellent color. Comes with template which allows for easy leveling and marking/drilling of holes. It comes with everything to install into drywall. Product was also well packaged and protected.
The only potential recommendation I have is that it would be nice if Delta included some form of cushion that could go at the end of the bar to give it a snug fit. This would make it so the bar won't clang around when moving horizontally as there is a little play.
We purchased the full Lahara collection for our bathroom: 2 towel racks, towel ring, shower faucet, hand faucet, and toilet paper holder. We had to mount the toilet paper holder a little lower than I would like on our vanity due to the way it opens to install the toilet paper. Outside of those items this is a great product line by Delta.

Great finish, head-thumping install
We installed Delta products for faucets and accessories. All are lovely! Only difficulty was installing the teeny tiny set screws with the teeny tiny wrench. Delta's supplier replaced the one and only bad piece of attachment hardware (out of many) with a whole new set. Highly recommend for home and cottage. Beautiful finish to our remodeling project.

Loose and rattles
Looks good but is too loose. Make sure that you use some putty to stop the rattle
