Answer: 
There are five mounting holes in each bracket the two in the center are 16" on center the others are spaced about an inch off center on either side. I would recommend mounting into a stud but the unit does come with wall anchors.

Answer: 
i am not sure of the center mount distance, but it must go into a stud or reinforcement in the wall. the seat is rated for 300 lbs, the only way for the product to hold that kind of weight, is to mount directly into the studs. molly bolts or wall anchors will not hold the weight.

I do not expect to find studs directly behind the molded fiberglass walls, but I am not a carpenter.

Answer: 
It can be installed on fiberglass only if solid wood backing can be added to support the seat weight. If backing is not used the wall of fiberglass will crack.

Answer: 
Yes. This is the ideal situation. The stud will provide more support than the anchors. This is the reason why a 3/16" drill bit is recommended. No larger hole is needed if the anchors are not used.

Answer: 
Yes, but you will need to use a larger drill bit going through the tile itself to insure that the lags clear the tile without cracking it. And be sure you use a drill bit designed for drilling tile I recommend start with a new drill bit. Also DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN tiles are fragile and will break.

Answer: 
Hello Bama,
Securing load bearing items to the wall by using the stud is always the best course of action. The studs provide a far stronger and stable connection connection than anchors can. If you intend to drill into tile you will need specialized bits. Tile bits feature an arrow head shaped tip that allows them to drill through tile while minimizing the chances of shattering it.

Since this will be placed in the shower I would also suggest placing a small amount of silicone caulking around the flange assembly. This will help prevent moisture from entering the wall and can be easily removed if needed at any time. I hope this information is helpful.
Cheers,
Chris

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good chose right size for our average size shower - fold out of way when needed - August 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shower seat I got the seat for my mom's shower. She loved it so much that I bought one for my shower. I didn't install it but my contractor had no problems. It's great to sit down to wash your feet and shave. Love it! March 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great item for the price. It was very easy to install. The metal is finished in a powder coating. The powder coating will eventually wear of at the pivot points letting rust to devolp and fail at sometime. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good solid seat I bought this to install in my new tiled shower. There is a 6" deep shelf on one end of the shower and I wanted a seat that would fold up out of the way when not in use and this unit fit the bill perfectly. I looked at teak seats of the same design and the prices were over the top for me so this was an affordable option. The frame is aluminum and very well made there are five holes in each of the two mounting brackets for your lag bolts, however, they only give you six bolts. Apparently three in each side should be sufficient to handle the 300 lb. weight limit. I drilled and installed five in each side just because I could and it was an added measure of safety since I'm no lightweight. I found the easiest way to drill and install this on tile was to put some painters tape over the tile so my pencil marks would show up. Once I marked my holes I drilled one on each side and installed two of the lags and checked for level once I was satisfied I finished drilling the other holes with the seat in place and that insured that everything would line up properly. One final note their instructions tell you to use a 3/16" drill for your pilot hole to accommodate the 5/16" lag bolts supplied, however; when installing on a tiled wall you will need to drill a larger hole through the tile itself to avoid cracking or braking your tiles I used a 3/8" ceramic bit to open up the hole in the tile which should go about a 1/4" to 3/8" deep, no deeper because you want your lags to grab as much material as possible to secure the seat to the studs. Overall the install was simple enough and the faux teak looks nice for a fraction of the cost so I'm very pleased with this product. October 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, bad instructions. The seat is well made and solid. We love it. The instructions, which are printed on the outside of the box as well as on paper inside, call for a 3/16" hole for the mounting hardware. And the plastic anchors provided with the seat are 3/8"....... Back to the store to buy the right size drill bit...... February 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT PRODUCT Amputees will love the ease of the seat, the fact that you can fold the seat make it perfect for the family, and guest. Please reinforce the mount for extra support. GREAT PRODUCT June 29, 2013
