No bathroom is complete without a towel hook. Our patented ligature resistant Towel Hook is designed to hold towels or articles of clothing, while still maintaining secure conditions in behavioral hospital settings where ligature is a concern.
The TH770 Ligature Resistant Towel Hook is designed with a sloped face and sides to minimize ligature points. The pivoting half-moon-shaped holder offers a larger cross section as compared to other products, minimizing the potential for patient injury. The specially designed center grip creates friction on the article hung on the holder for better hold. The holder pivots downward when a force exceeding an unsafe weight is placed on it to help limit any possibility of ligature. When installed with the included hardware, the base fits snugly against the wall, and when mounted with pick-free caulk, the sloped base also discourages ligature.
Constructed of white powder-coated, aircraft grade aluminum for abuse and corrosion resistance, the TH770 Ligature Resistant Towel Hook will perform well in the often damp bathroom environment. The holder includes tamper resistant mounting hardware and can be retrofitted to existing rooms or installed in new facilities. Upgrade your facility’s bathrooms today with our TH770 Ligature Resistant Towel Hook.

I find it invaluable to have vendors, such as BSP, who are patient, thorough, and take the time to understand our project needs. Vendors like you keep owners and architects happy and ultimately help make the project a success.
Chief Executive OfficerBanner HealthThe team at Behavioral Safety Products has been a terrific partner in our efforts to update our older behavioral health inpatient units. Many of the units have dated spaces that have odd fixtures and required retrofitting to be installed. They have helped us on multiple projects and even worked with their distributor to speed up delivery time in order for us to meet internal deadlines. BSP has been a pleasure to work with and a great resource for our facilities team.
