    This product worked well for several months but has always been very difficult to open and refill. The sensor is very responsive, but the difficulty opening to refill brings my rating down.
    Just did a remodel for my restrooms. These fit in nicely and has a modern feel. It does require you to buy come batteries. Do not know how long that might last. Easy to program and sometimes dispenses the towel. Really slow but does the job!
    Love this paper towel Dispenser. Easy to use, easy to install, Adjustable for length and great looking. Cant go wrong, Great buy. Highly recommended for any restroom.
