Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0704580A2] The bracket has a holder (3) mounted on it to secure the shower-head. The bracket itself is mounted on a wall-mounted vertical guide bar (1). The bracket is secured detachably at the desired height by an elastic body (8) forming a locking member, and which exerts a clamping force on the bar when pressure is applied to it. Pressure can be applied by a clamping screw (10) turning freely and parallel to the bar, and which engages in a nut acting against the body. A slide (13) can be fitted between the bar and the body, bearing against the bar and moving with the bracket. The body can be tubular.
