    Little screw somewhere needs tightening.

    It doesn't use little screws - it is a bracket with a rubber tip that the riser pole sits in, you then tighten up a collar to increase the friction between the brakcet and the pole - but it doesn't work and the pole just slips through the bracket.

    Likely an issue with the design of the riser pole and clamp, did you see the one comment on the B&Q website?

    "Bought and fitted shower this week. Just what is wanted. Only problem is instruction manual is very poor. Just pictures and no real info. Still trying to work out how to fix soapdish and stop riser from slipping down."

    Yeah, I did see that and assumed that they had fitted it wrong somehow (that is often the case when folk say that something doesn't work),
    Think I just need to take it back then.

    On a related note - has anyone every installed or used a dual head shower riser that worked well? Looking for a recommendation.
    Note - it is only the riser I need - I can find plenty of rainfall shower heads that come with a thermostatic mixer - but I already have a recessed mixer.
