    Hi eveyone,
    We have an old victorian home (lathe and plaster) with a clawfoot bathtub. We are interested in having the tub enclosed, but are concerned with mounting anything to the walls or ceiling. Is there anything available that clips onto the side of the tub to hold the shower curtain? Or am I dreaming?
    Thanks

    There are faucets with the shower riser attached to them, and has a stabilizing bracket mounted to the wall. The shower curtain ring fastens to it, and USUALLY needs at least one support to the ceiling, unless you get one with a small round shower ring which the riser itself will support. ANYTHING that just anchors to the tub WILL break.
