A shower caddie ceases to be useful when it goes tumbling to your shower floor. Caddies are notorious for falling, can be difficult to secure and often fall because the inadequate pressure within the suction cups. To keep the caddie from falling, you can try to reapply the caddie or purchase a mounting kit that will secure the caddie to the shower wall with adhesive.

  1. 1

    Remove all products from the shower caddie.

  2. 2

    Wipe the surface of the shower where you want to secure the shower caddie, using a rag soaked with rubbing alcohol. Wipe the surface dry with a clean towel or rag.

  3. 3

    Moisten the suction cups on the back of the shower caddie with a sponge or rag.

  4. 4

    Place the caddie against the shower wall and hold it in place until secure.

    Apply Strips

  1. 1

    Pull the suction cups off the back of the shower caddie, leaving two bare, metal braces where the suction cups were. You will turn these braces into mounting bases. We will refer to one metal brace as "Side A" and the other as "Side B." First, slide one of the two plastic bases from the shower mounting kit over Side A.

  2. 2

    Remove the backing from two of the four adhesive strips in the shower mounting kit. Apply the two strips to the mounting base and remove the paper covering from the front of the strip.

  3. 3

    Press the caddie firmly against the wall and hold for several seconds. Pull the caddie upward to remove it from the mounting base. Mounting base A will remain on the wall.

  4. 4

    Repeat the process and apply the second plastic base to Side B. Hold the caddie against the wall again to secure the new base. Slide the caddie upward, leaving the new base secured to the wall. Press firmly against each plastic base on the wall for 30 seconds.

  5. 5

    Wait an hour and slide the shower caddie into the mounting bases secured to the wall.
