Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lovingmomhappykids OK in compairison to the one I have
First I have to say this does what it says, It is a good grab bar. I gave it a 4 because It lacks a rubber grip that my other one has. I already have one MHI Grab bar, but after surgery my husband needed a second one. One to help him enter and the second to hold onto once in the shower. I could not find another MHI one near my home, so I decided to get a Moen one. The Moen one has just as good of suction and I really have nothing bad to say about it. It works, but the MHI has a better grip and feel because of the thick rubber grippers on the back side of the handle. The MHI is also more attractive to me but that is just a matter of taste. Also the Moen one is unnecessarily bulker but provides the same amount of grip space and suction power.
Honestly the Moen one will probably look better in the long run (ie years) as the rubber grippers on the back side of the MHI will likely accumulate water build up. Also the white color of the Moen one matches with the prefab shower stalls better. But I only needed something temporary while my husband recovers from surgery so my main goal is functionality not looks, so at the same price I prefer MHI with its better grip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mizzouspidergal The works wonderfully!!
I had ankle surgery and wanted to have ASSISTANCE getting in and out of the bathtub SAFELY!!! These handles work great. They are very sturdy even for a fairly heavy person and were VERY easy to install. Love these and would recommend them to anyone.

Bought two of these for my shower as my wife cannot get up off the shower chair without help. Package says for helping with balance only, not for full weight. So far the wife has pulled herself up with the help of these. They are great. The shower housing is fiberglass and suction works well.

This bath grip added peace of mind and additional safety for my wife as she returned home from knee replacement. We were amazed at the sturdy construction and ease of attachment to our shower. Constant exposure to water has not affected the suction of the product. Wide, solid grip handle offers comfort upon exit from the shower. This unit is definitely built to last.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Majors Wow What A Bar
I bought this bar for my 71 year young mother, who just had a hip replacement. I had my 14 year old test with all her 110 lb weight she almost pull the tile off the wall because the suction was so great. Home Health Care came out to assist mother and wanted to see where she shower, he was so impressed ask mother where I purchased and what was the name, of course she didn't know but I told her for the next therapy visit so he could recommend to other. buy buy buy
One note make sure the shower tile is very clean, use 1/2 cup vinegar and /1/2 cup dawn mixed together spray on let set for 30 min then clean my what a difference! (from Pinterest)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldbuck Very strong and sturdy
Very strong and sturdy, suctions cups are large which provides maximum resistance to loads. This is very important when you compare other products, smaller suction cups equal lower holding power. I bought two, great product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJSUMMER Just what I was looking for
Needed something strong, and easy to install myself for my 94 yo father
CAN.T BE ANY EASIER TO INSTALL.
and when you think of the alternative- the cost is a moot point

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tnahpele Good, but read the instructions.
I installed this in our shower to assist when getting in and out. It grips very tightly and stays stuck.
The instructions say it's designed for 4x4 inch tile. My shower is 6x8 inch and the handle works fine. But the guest bath has 3x3" tile and the handle wouldn't stick because one of the suction cups was always on a grout line.
The instructions also say not apply weight to the handle, just use it for balance. What they don't mention, but I've seen happen with other similar aids, is you can pull the tile right off the wall if you apply too much pressure.
It's longer than I expected, with a full 5" of grip area making it easy to grab and the grip is contoured for individual finger so it's comfortable to hold.
