How do I place/anchor showehead at a low height, without drilling the wall?


  • I have a bathtub with a shower-head

  • The shower-head is attached via a mount point which is very high (~ height of raised hand of an adult)

    • This means a child cannot reach the shower-head to take it off/put it back on if needed if it's in the "proper" place, hanging from the mount. Too high to reach!

What can I do to remedy this situation?

Just to be clear, I do NOT need the shower-head to be acting as a shower when placed - I just need it to be on, AND not spraying water all over the bathroom.


  • What I need: a way to place the shower-head at a height that a small(ish) child can reach. Say, less than 4 feet from the bath floor, ideally less than 2 feet.

  • The showerhead must be on, and when on, should NOT spray water anywhere except into the bathtub.

  • What I do NOT need: Don't care if - when placed - water pour over the person. As long as it ends 100% in the bathtub.

  • I do NOT want to drill holes in the wall to install a new mount point for the showerhead.

  • The shower mount is such that you CAN hang things from it. E.g. right now a shower organizer hangs from it

  • There is a faucet in the bathtub, but placing the running shower-head on it doesn't work (see next section)

  • Showerhead is on a flexible hose, the length of the hose is such that, when fully extended, the head almost reaches the bath floor.

  • Shower walls are tiled

  • Buying a new shower head (or an extension replacement) isn't an option.

What I tried:

  • Just take the showerhead off, and let it hang down.

    This failed because when turned on, the shower spray jet-pushes the head in all sorts of directions, and being on the end of flexible hose, it flies and thus sprays all over the place.

  • Place the shower-head on the bathtub's faucet

    This works when the water is OFF. However, when you turn it on, the water jet's force is enough to EASILY dislodge the head from the faucet and it falls to previous free-hanging issue.

  • Attach a small holder to the tiles on the wall with suckers.

    The suckers easily disconnected after 1 shower.
