I never installed a grab bar before. So, I studied the web to find out how to do it. There are a couple of tips I did not find on the web that I think are valuable if you are working with cultured marble around the tub and shower. (1) First use a stud finder to locate the studs behind the cultured marble. Start from the inside corner of the shower stall and locate the first stud. The next stud should be 16" from the first stud you found. (2) Use a 1/4" diamond tip drill bit to drill the first hole through the cultured marble until it reaches the stud. It has to be a diamond tip drill bit. If you use an 1/8" diamond drill bit, the hole will be too tight, and strip the heads on the stainless steel screws. (3) Next, using a 1/8" drill bit, drill through the 1/4" opening into the stud so you do not split the stud when you screw the screws into the wall. (4) Use a plastic anchor and hammer it lightly into the 1/4" opening until you hit the stud; cut the excess off flush with the marble; this will help guide the screw and keep water out. (5) Use silicone caulk to coat the opening. (6) Now, screw the stainless steel screws into the wall to secure the mounting plates.

Love the product nice finish easy install except for the Allan screws. The Allen wrench is too short and should have a coarse finish had hard time reaching set screws and hanging onto wrench chrome finish doesn't help with grip. I had to search for my mm set with ball end on it which made it a lot easier

Excellent product, I made sure I went into the stud with the screws which can be unnerving with a tiled wall. The tile only went up 5' so I used the un-tiled portion to locate the studs. I was able to peel back the the wall covering an hammer a nail into the wall to be sure.
I like the SS screws - all in all a fine product.
