From useless to useful

I did a quick mod today to make those silly useless shelves in the shower a lot more functional.

Parts: two nylon pad eyes, four waterproof rivets and some bungee cord.

The bungee cord does a good job of keeping the shampoo bottles where they belong.

That is great idea. From the looks of the shelf, it does look a bit worthless.

Is this pic upside down?

Why would they put the shelves there?

It looks like those waterproof rivets are a style of pop rivets. Where did you get them?

DK--I have those same useless shelves. You have to wonder what the heck they were thinking, they don't hold anything. I like your mod.

All of the parts for this mod came from my fishing kayak rigging kit. Places like Hook1 have the parts, but I bet West Marine or a similar store would too.
