Whale Tail Hook is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from looks spray painted Ugh. Frontgate, what did you do? You have a beautiful design that would be great in a true smooth metallic finish like nickel but this looks like you went to a local home store and spray painted them a dark gray and bumpy at that. I really have to debate on sending these back or repainting them myself. After what you all charge for shipping for 2 small hooks and what it would cost to return them, it may not be worth it. A shame too, I waited 2 months for these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whale Tails These hooks are GREAT. We have three sizes - S, M, L. Use them in outdoor shower, poolside for towels, pool cleaning equipment, etc. A perfect addition to coastal poolside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! May not have been designed to hang towels but these Whale Tails are stunning! I bought them along with the Anchors primarily to hang towels on by our pool but noticed that with a slight wind, the towels blew off but will work excellent on those still hot summer days!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rough Finish - Cheap Looking These hooks are not a smooth silver like they appear in the photo. Instead, they are dull and the finish is bumpy / rough. They would look good outside, but I had purchased them for indoor use and they really look cheap in my bathroom. This is my first purchase from Frontgate, but it will also be my last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture Perfect When I worked aboard a whale research ship in my twenties, this view of a whale's tail as they dive presented the perfect photo- identification image. I ordered the set of three small for my bathroom to hold our towels. I love them and they fit in perfectly with the surrounding whale art and decor, picture perfect they are. I may also order the large very soon, just for display!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! My sister has these for hanging towels at her lake house. I had to copy her. The small are the perfect size for a beach towel. Much lighter weight than I expected, but work beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and practical... We bought these whale tail hooks to hold our pool skimmer on a side wall. They're cute and sturdy. Will buy the smaller ones for hanging towels. Thanks Frontgate!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whale tail These hooks are cool but the website is very misleading. They appear to be metallic on the website when they are actually gray powder coat. Just sayin'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great robe holders by hottub I purchased the whale tail hooks to use as towel hooks on the side of house by the pool. After we got them, my husband actually spraypainted them in a bronze/brown finish (making them almost invisible) and attached them to a palm tree that is close to our hot tub. They are great for hanging our robes, very classy looking, perfect. Very happy with purchase. I do wish they had been offered in different finishes, but the spray paint did the trick

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Whale Tail Hooks for Outdoors I purchased 2 of these to hold our poles for our inground pool I was disappointed in the workmanship on them once I received them and saw the paint was missing on the corner of one of the tails. For the price being charged by Frontgate I would have expected better. Also, be aware that the photographs make these whale tails look like they are stainless steel but they are just painted grey. I think they look good on our fence but again I was disappointed in the price vs. the quality of the item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL! I ordered a medium set of whale tail hooks and 2 large whale tail hooks. We just put them up today on the wood railing that goes around the pool and they look stunning! We found the medium is large enough to hold the skimmer and the pool broom so I am sending the large hooks back since they look too large for the railing. However, as I am writing this review, I have 2 more medium whale tail sets and 2 anchor hooks in my cart. They look so fabulous, even our teenagers commented on how good they looked!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap Painted Metal As other's have stated, the picture on the website make it appear as though this hook is shiny metal, but in fact it just has a poor quality coat of battleship gray paint on it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly Disappointed Ordered one Large for the Bathroom Shower. Maybe I simply got a flawed item, but this one is very crudely made, as tho the mold was rough. Not crisp clean edges as pictured, and as other reviewer mentioned, is a concrete color powder coat bumpy finish. Fine for more rustic use, but I wanted a fine piece like art, but functional for heavy bath robes. Maybe very durable for outdoor poolside use, but I hoped for polished hooks to use with Dolphins on same wall. Can these be made to match your wall Dolphins? I still love the idea and style, just want a fine finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality, The finsish is more Pewter As always, the quality is great. The website shows a shinny whale tale but the actual color is more pewter; but they still look great. We purchased four small hooks and they are the perfect size to hang a towel. They truly accent our deck posts and it is nice not to have to drape our towels on the bar seats. Worth the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice inspiration Vice nice, subtantial, and easy to install. The small size is plenty large enough for a robe or oversized towel. The only dissapointment when these arrived was that they are not a silver chrome finish as pictured, but more the color and texture of concrete which doesn't match my fixtures as intended. We used 2 small Whale Hooks in our basement bathroom instead of a towel bar for practical reasons but they inspired us to complete a yacht club theme throughout our small midwest home since we miss our live-a-board life in the winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from COLOR NOT AS SHOWN The tails are DARK pewter, matte finish. Not at all shinu, and most definitely not as shown in the pic with the white striped towel and orange bathing suit. I was under the impression that they might even be stainless steel colored. NOT AT ALL. very sturdy great hooks but not the color i wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whale Tail Hook These were perfect. Just the thing I needed for the beach house. They hold towels and beach bags perfectly and look amazing on the wall. I didn't want to do the same ol' same ol' at the house and this fit the bill perfectly. I have them mixed with the anchor hooks (similar to what is displayed). I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from whale tales good quality. not to heavy but strong enough to hold a large damp towel.. I like the look

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Towel tails Years ago I purchased the largest size tails to use as my pool tools (poles with nets & brushes) holder. Since then I decided I needed some wet towel holders for the pool area as well, so I purchased 2 sets of the medium sized tails. They will be perfect for this use. FYI - The large tails have been sitting in the FL sun/rain for about 7 or 8 years and in my mind have stood the test of time and I still love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! Very sturdy and looks great in my laundry room. The kids use these for wet pool towels. I have 5 lined up (alternating heights). Looks great. Would prefer if screws matched finish on tails but I just used a silver sharpie to fix that. Recently ordered more for the pool house. Thought I should mix it up since I already have these in the main house but could not find anything I preferred better than these. I now own 10 whale tails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whale Tail Hook I was looking for a unique kind of hook to hang my towel on in the bathroom. The tale is perfect for this type of application indoors. The only thing odd was that the screws were different sizes.

On the small whale tails, how wide is the bottom of the tail where the screws are & the distance between the screws?

Want to make sure we can mount in a stud or we'll have to cut into the wall and put in a board for support.
Asked by: spinningmomof3
Thank you for your interest in the Whale Tail Hook. The portion of this item that mounts to the wall is 1.5” x 1.5” with the distance between the holes of 1.25”.

Are the whale and anchor hooks weather resistant in an outdoor shower near the beach? Will they rust or corrode?

Will the smallest whale tail hooks be offered again?

About four to six months ago, Frontgate offered three sizes of whale tail hooks.The smallest size is no longer offered. Currenlty only two sizes are offered. The old medium size has become the small size.I believe the smallest size was offered only as a set of three. I need the smallest size to complete my outdoor shower. Thanks.
Asked by: Beachez
Thank you for your interest in Frontgate. The Small Whale Tail Hooks are available; however, they are now sold individually rather than in a set of 3. On the "Select Size" drop down for item 3441, you have the option to order the Small or the Large hooks.
