Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Great choice (Install while you are young)
First thought; get it done while your young to be ready for inevitable aging. I had theses installed for mother-in-law with Parkisons and for me as I begin to age. I selected smaller diameter bar for her smaller hands. Suggest keeping that in mind. Installation height is very important. I selected height that would allow her to push down as opposed to pulling up. Suggested install height is 33in -36 in. Mine was 28 in because of her small stature. Use the height that works for you. Because I could only attach to one stud I bought extra-strength wallboard screws at HD for attaching to the non-stud area. They work great with a small caveat. You can see a small piece of wallboard attachment flange outside the chrome wall piece. See picture of bar on right as you look at photo. It can be touchdown painted to match wall. I chose strength and secure nests over esthetics.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ukulelegirl Love the hand grip, but need more sizes!
I've seen virtually all hand grips for bathroom, hall safety for elderly. Most are those big clunky 2 1/2 inch diameter numbers. The Moen hand grip, designer model, is not only good for a hand grip, but I want it for an 18" towel bar and 24" towel bar, but it is apparently not made.
It has a spa look and feel to it. Sleek, but functional.
My Mother uses the hand grip to stand up, but then rips my towel bars out of the wall, using them for grips, also. Please make this product in the larger sizes. Maybe you do? I can't locate them on your website.

I have two 24" bars installed already. I needed something shorter and this 9" fit right in with the others. The mounting is easy and concealed, so it has a finished look. The only complaint I have is it is not available in 16" length. This would be perfect to go from stud to stud. I will have to keep looking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stretch Bought my 4th hand grip
Easy to install. Two of the hand grips in my home are installed with machine screws in threaded holes in a shower stall. The most recent installation is in preparation for a shoulder rotator cuff repair operation permitting the uninjured arm to assist in getting off the toilet.

When my new shower was professionally installed, this Moen designer hand grip was installed at the entrance for safety. It looked so handsome and it was so comfortable to grip that I now reach for it automatically. I like that it was installed securely with screws, and that the screws are hidden. The inner part if the handle tapers and is lined with a soft rubber, which gives a little when I grasp it. My hands are strong, but even if they weren't, this grip would work great.
Recently, I replaced my patio doors with new vinyl doors. To correct an uneven floor and make them level, the new doors ended up an inch higher at the floor, so I have to step up and over the threshold. I immediately remembered how well this handgrip worked in my shower for this problem. So I asked my window installer to place one handgrip on the inside wood frame and another on the outside wood frame of each sliding door. They work great, and they match my white vinyl doors as if designed to be part of their installation.

Everyone should have one or more of these somewhere near their bathtub. You never know when you might lose your footing and need to grab on to something. Moen offers these in a variety of lengths and in different finishes too. Easy to install. A wise investment.
