AND NOW Black is Back in 24" Re-Place-A-Bars!

The black and white instructions above are from Lenape. We will add to them with the long block of text below. And then part numbers and pricing will follow that text.


  • In the above black and white diagram, you only need to saw your bar out if it is still in place. Odds are, it is not.
  • Please print the above diagram or this paragraph of instructions. Bars do NOT come with instructions.
  • Please bookmark this page now, should you need it for future reference.
  • The Re-Place-A-Bars are designed as a replacement for ceramic posts that cannot be removed from your wall.
  • Here are the rest of the most popular answers to the questions that we have had over the years:
  • The bar length is 12", 24", or 36". This does NOT include the spring loaded ends into that equation.
  • The bars are 3/4" square. This is the only size they come in.
  • The spring loaded ends DO come with the bar. Two ends come with each bar.
  • We are not aware of any round replacement bars with spring loaded ends. We have only square.
  • The plastic bars can be cut down to size (by you) by using a hack saw. Or other fine tooth saw.
  • You can use a Ginsu knife it they still exist to cut the bars down.
  • The spring loaded ends can be removed from the bar, and you will remove at least one when you cut the bar to size. Then you will put the end back in.
  • The spring loaded ends can argue with you about being removed. Most fit in pretty tight. The way we have removed them is to use a utility knife. We gently wiggle the blade in under the collar of the spring loaded end and then gently twist. We are not pressuring the razor edge on the plastic, we are just using it as a thin pry bar. Using anything thicker would most likely break the plastic. Look at the color photo above and you can see how the spring loaded ends are slipped into the bar.
  • The new bar is NOT meant to rest on the spring loaded ends when finalized.
  • The length of your new bar is the distance between your posts PLUS the recessed depth of one of the openings in your posts.
  • For example, if you have 22" between your posts, and the square or diamond shaped hole is 7/16" deep, you want your bar to be 22-7/16".
  • Thus, the spring loaded ends self-center the bar, and the bar rests halfway into the depth of the openings in BOTH towel bar end posts. Now the bar strength sits in both posts, not just the spring loaded ends.
  • When you compress one spring loaded end to insert it into the first post, then hold the other in and slip the bar to the inside of the second post and let go, the spring loaded ends will self-center the bar, and then the bar rests upon itself within the posts. (Yes, we are trying to emphasize that point.)
  • When putting your spring loaded end back into the bar, clear the bar of debris, and you may have to push hard. Sometimes they are quite snug.
  • Years ago, bars did come in black,AND as of August 2018, Black 24" bars are back. No black in 36".
  • Yes, the clear bars give the illusion of ribs in them. They are translucent.
  • If you are planning on painting the bars, get clear, you will have better luck with that.


  • Small quantities of Re-Place-A-Bars are generally shipped via US Priority Mail. Please make sure you provide us with a valid mailing address when ordering. For Canadian shipments and other countries, we normally ship via International First Class Mail through the US Post Office.
  • We can ship most everywhere in the world.
  • 10-packs and 100 case packs will ship via UPS.
  • We keep all sizes in both clear and white bars in STOCK.

Our bulk and case pricing is more suited to apartment complexes, hotels, state parks, and other facilities that require the bars in bulk. The average homeowner seems to order them 1 to 3 at a time, and that is fine. There is no minimum order. We just want to try to accommodate organizations that may require the bars in larger bulk. This is why the bulk pricing is shown. Eclectic-ware sells to everyone: Homeowners, contractors, high school principals, movie stars, including Chuck Norris, and large businesses.... Anyone can purchase from us.

Oval (D-shaped) plastic towel ring (Clear)

D-ring clear acrylic is no longer available

Did fit Lenape towel ring numbers: 426, 526, and 826 from the Carrousel and Classic series.

Round metal towel rings
(stock items)
White or polished chrome available only.

Lenape 642-01 and 642-72 round towel ring replacements

Carrousel towel ring with round ring

Showing the round and D-ring towel ring choices

Fits Lenape towel ring numbers: 126, 426, 526, 606, and 826 from all Lenape collections.
Available in White or Polished Chrome only now. (Bone & brushed nickel now discontinued)

Lenape Classic Series used a full round white or bone ring. The Meridian Series used the white ring. The Athena series uses the white, brushed nickel, and polished chrome rings. These round rings can also be used for the Carrousel Series towel ring as demonstrated above.
These rings are tougher than the clear D-ring and very doubtful that they would ever break.
And you can use them in place of the clear D-ring. They will fit into the same mount.
There are two little plastic caps that fit over the ends in the split in the ring. This is what keeps the ring from spinning in towel bar posts that have a hole through them. Most posts just have a divot on each side.
Round rings MEASURE 6-1/4" in overall diameter.


Round white towel ring

$9.39 each


Round polished chrome towel ring

$9.39 each
