Stylish 700 Series Ceramic Hanging Hooks
There is one ceramic hook design in the 700 Series. A rounded corner square base with a protrusion that comes out and then turns up 90 degrees with a nice nub end on it. But of course it comes in 3 mounting methods and 80+ colors. So technically over 200 choices. We have always called it a robe hook. But it seems to be used for a lot more than just robes. If you have towels with the eyelets sewn into the corners, you can hang a towel on it. When the robe hooks are mounted in the shower area, scrubbing brushes, scrubbies, and washcloths are hung on them. The clip on version of the hanging hook can be used behind doors on on the back of a door, or in entryways or lockers. Hang a shirt or coat on them, use them in other areas of the home. Need to hang a kitchen apron?
Now, the Scoop on AC Products. Yes, they are out of business, as of November, 2022. They announced it, halted production, and only sold off what they had had currently made. We were a "little" lucky. We were able to stock up on some towel bars, TP holders, shower caddies and a few other items. This note is now updated as of Feb. 17, 2023. Stock is selling off. There are some holes already for the items we normally kept in our stock, primarily the 700 Series and 900 Series. We are noting in the product "select your color" drop down menus as to how many of each item we have left in each color. And we have erased options for items that are completely gone. Updating it pretty much every other day. We still have a fair amount of stock on hand. But when it comes to all those wonderful colors, they are pretty much gone. We will continue to sell what we have until it completely runs out. We still offer Lenape Bath Hardware, and hope to find a source to re-invent some of what AC Products had offered. Many of our AC Products web pages still have a lot of older info. This note supercedes everything....
The hook is made from ceramic. So anything extremely heavy would not be advised to be hung on them. Shirts, jackets, hats, a purse, all of that is fine. But if you keep 25 pounds of quarters in your purse, we would not recommend hanging that purse on this hook. Most likely they are designed to hold about 20 pounds, but no need to test the limit. Most damp full size mens terry cloth bath robes might end up weighing up to 10 pounds. Lightweight or silk bathrobes might weigh 2 pounds. A Loofah might weigh one pound when rung out.
Look below the robe hook pictures to read explanations of the 3 mounting methods available:

The BA753 thin-set mount:
It must set into a 1/4" deep or slightly greater depth. Thin-set is the popular choice for new tile walls. Cut a tile to leave an opening, set the protrustion on the back of the robe hook into the hole. It can be adhered using the same tile mounting adhesive. The 1/4" projection on the back is not the full size of the back. Thus the full width and height of the base can overlap adjacent tiles and grout lines. Some installers will mount the hook centered or somewhere within a tile, intead of on a grout line.
The BF753 flat back mount:
Designed to be glued onto ANY flat surface. Glue them over tile, wood, or sheet rock. Flat back does not require an opening to set into. Flat back is great for a currently tiled wall surface. If you do not want to cut your tile and install a thin-set mount, you can glue the flat back to any position on the tile. Be aware that super smooth glossy tile like glass, may need to be scuffed up a little in the bonding area for a greater hold with the adhesive.
The BC753 clip on mount:
Designed for drywall and wood walls. Can be used on tile too if you wish. Each BC753 hanging hook will come with one mounting clip, plastic anchors, and screws. The clip goes on the wall first, the hook slides down onto it. Very easy to install.
Clicking or tapping on any of the 3 images above will allow you to see the backs of the hooks to see how the mounting method changes.

AC Products also publishes a color cross reference chart of how their colors coincide with some popular tile brand colors. If you know your tile brand and color code, you can see if there is a reference in that chart. There use to be over 140 color choices, now that has been reduced to around 80ish. Some colors are just way out of date and not as popular anymore. Keeping glaze made in obsolete colors just does not work. Glaze dries out over the years and becomes unuseable. So some colors just have to be deleted.
Then we have a third help page set up for colors. Our color comparing and selection help page. We have taken group photos of the whites, light tones, greys, browns, blues, greens, etc. For the greys and browns this is helpful since there are about a dozen choices each in those tones. And telling the difference between white, biscuit, and bone is sometimes tough when you have no reference to go by. So that page can be very helpful when trying to match to tiles in your bathroom.
Stock and Lead times:
- The BA753, BF753, and BC753 we stock in C1 gloss white and C5 gloss black in small to modest quantities.
- Then the same 3 mounting methods we stock in C3, C34, C70 and M66 colors, normally 3 to 6 of each.
- The robe hooks are a popular item for hanging robes, brushes, washcloths, and eyelet cornered towels.
All other colors take us approx. 3 weeks to receive. Generally 2 weeks for AC Products to make them, and then a week for us to receive them. Please plan that into your installation timing.
