Lahara Pivoting Arm Toilet Tissue Holder
I remodeled my master bath with the Lahara series. I even ordered the coordinating Lahara light fixture. It's absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, the toilet paper holder is not functional. Because the end post swivels up with the arm, you cannot slide the toilet paper roll over the post! Pretty to look at, but what good is it if you can't slide the paper on to the arm! Now I have to go find another toilet paper holder that works and that will look good with my Lahara collection.

Disappointed After an 8 Month Test Run
My wife and I purchased these for a new house built slightly less than a year ago. Since installing the product in all our bathrooms, rolls for 2 of the 3 have come loose. While we simply tightened one to make it more snug, the other one has defective hardware that doesn't allow us to retighten these to the wall. Furthermore, the receptor the swings up is wider or as wide as the average toilet paper roll, often causing the paper to slide off the roll.
The product sure looks nice, but functionality is sorely lacking. We're disappointed with this product.

We purchased this thinking it was a twin to one purchased a year ago. It is not. Someone in the design department apparently thought it would be a neat twist on the normal holder to make this one lift up on one side for the rolls to be changed. This means you have to try to fit the roll over the round knot on the end of the spindle that holds the roll. After trying to fit a replacement roll (don't know how the person who put the first one on did it!), I finally managed after jamming it on one way, taking what little I had managed to get on off, turning the roll around and jamming it on the other end a few times. However, after only having two rolls on this holder, we noticed that the wall was being pulled out where the stationary knot was fastened, so took the whole thing off, will have to repair and repaint the wall and get a new holder.

Bought these for my master and half bath and love them! I'm still getting used to how to change the toilet roll since I've never had one like this where it lifts up, but other than that it was easy to install (includes a template to help you drill pilot holes) and is very sturdy.

Like the tilt arm
There are 2 versions of this item. I prefer the one that has the tilt arm rather than the traditional spring loaded rod for holding the roll of toilet paper. It looks good and holds the large rolls far enough from the wall.

We bought these to match existing faucets. They look OK but the bar that holds the toilet paper roll is kind of flimsy. It is open in the back. It is not a completely round bar. It is hollowed out.

Love it with one exception...
This toilet paper holder is really nice and looks beautiful in my bathroom. The only downside to this (and this applies to the towel ring too) is the little hex screw that holds it in place. When installing this, you have to attach a metal plate to the wall with 2 screws. Then the body of the unit attaches to the metal plate and is held in place by a small hex screw on the underside. This is a really nice cosmetic set-up because you don't have any exposed screws, creating a sleek appearance. The problem is with the hex screws. When tightening the hex screw with the allen wrench (included with item), I kept having the hex screw get stripped. I wasn't over tightenting either. I am afraid that if the screw ever becomes loose or if I ever have to take the it down for some reason, I will not be able to because the hex screw is stripped. This really shouldn't be a problem if they only had the screws made out of slightly better material. I have never had a problem with stripping out these types of screws before in my life, and I have used allen wrenches for many different applications.
Otherwise, I really like the toilet paper holder. I just hope I don't ever have to move it.

strong, attractive and good value
Love Delta products. We have this tissue holder in two bathrooms and it is easy to use and durable! Go for it!
