Because the "L" shape of this bar demands mounting in the corner, it is not possible to fit the mounting pads to line up with studs. But the "L" bar was easy to install because of the removable center mounting pad, and although only four screws of the nine hit a stud, expanding anchors worked well for the other six screws. Suggest you loosen the removable center pad and use several layers of masking tape to "cushion" the location where it will install - mark the drill points on the tape which will help to keep the drill from walking on the glazed surface. I used a 5/16" carbide-tip "spade" drill bit and installed 5/16" plastic expansion anchors in all holes that did not impact a stud. Loosely install the center pad, fit the bar in place and mark the drill points for both ends, remove the bar and drill those; replace the center mounting pad and reinstall the bar, alternate tightening all of the mounting screws, snap the covers in place ... done. (OH -- close the tub drain if no screen! Clean up the dust in the bathtub.)

Instructions say to 'find stud" but this is not possible with corner 'ELL' bars since they must be located in the corner! No consideration is given to the possibility that studs may not fall under the fixed positions of the mounting flanges, requiring hollow-wall anchors of some kind. Unless you are experienced in drilling thru ceramic tile and using anchors of this kind, these can be serious problems.
