Well constructed for strength, but the screw holes are placed horizontally wider than the wall stud. You need to first screw on a back board wide enough to hit two studs , then screw the grab bar onto that. It's a mounting project!

Product works great. Installed for the benefit of my wife. All parts of good quality...even mounting bolts. Bar raises and lowers effortlessly...(not a complete freefall yet also not a large amount of friction either), anchor clips are simple in design yet effective in function, and although having the option to raise or lower the bar comes at a significant upgrade to cost, in my opinion this is money well spent: With the bars up the space is more accessible in regards to function, and less institutional in appearance. The mounting holes are not made for a common, behind the wall, anchor structure,(4 3/4" L to R on center, 10 1/2" top to bottom on center),so the purchaser should be aware that structural needs should be addressed accordingly. Install was as easy as can be for a product of this type on the assumption the mounting sub structure was where it needed to be. I am only 170 pounds, but I can easily suspend my entire body weight on the bar without a hint that the product is anywhere near a point of stress failure.

I purchased this item for my parents use at home. I was very impressed with the build quality of the bar. It will last through years of use and provides a strong and secure platform for transitioning from one position to another (ie. wheelchair onto toilet, bath, etc). I installed this in my parents bathroom behind the toilet and because of the size of the grab bar mounting plate you can only get 2 screws into a stud with the other 2 into the drywall which is not a good support surface. I got around this as suggested by another commenter and that is to use a 1x12x36 lumbar attached to the studs and then attach the grab bar to it. I did something similar and used 2 pieces of 1x4x36 oak lumber. This arrangement provided solid support. I put close to 200 pounds on the bar with no adverse movement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cobra93 Very good product for the price
This is a very inexpensive product compared to what is available.
The bar has to be pulled down, it doesn't fall on its own.
I'm 260 lbs, if I pull sideways it will move a couple of inches.
I bought this for my mom (125 lbs.) and it doesn't move when she pulls on it.
I would buy again.
The con I listed below is due to the mounting holes are so far apart, I'm sure the other products are the same, but you can't hit a stud on all 4 holes unless you're lucky when mounting it in a corner.
