I think there is a space between the molded shower stall and the actual bathroom wall as it has some very minor flex in the molded shower stall wall.

Answer: 
Hi Floridaretired,
Your fiberglass enclosure is most likely attached directly to the studs, with the remaining space open. Thus the grab bar must be attached only to the studs to be secure.

For such a specific usage involving steam in an enclosed room, your best bet is to ask the manufacturer for the answer.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 126 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality system, but here is a tip I used: I had some rocking between the bar's flanges and the already adhered triangle base. I researched why this could lead to failure. I used 2 pieces of flat wood about 4" squares 3/8" thick, and double sided taped them over the triangles, and then applied adhesive backed 150 grit sandpaper over the wood. I then removed the circular stainless flanges from the handle by loosening the allen head bolt that threads into a welded nut or threaded portion on the inside. From there I could rub the bar itself on the sandpaper/wood blocks to abrade or sand down the ends precisely flat to the wall tile location (we had 4.25" square tiled wall) The threaded part is recessed so you will not sand into the threads nor the weld. Then when I put the flanges back on the bar ends and tightened the screws that hold them into the triangle base I wasn't lifting the base and adhesive away from the wall compromising the bond so it won't fail and the bar is securely mounted to last. The instructions say to use acetone and possibly 400 grit sandpaper on the surface you wish to mount the bar ends, I choose to use an oxalic acid cleanser like "bar keeper's friend" rinsed well, and then followed up with acetone wipe. I had an actual can of acetone I used some from, so didn't use the included wipe. The mounting adhesive tube was soft yet took the key to get it to squeeze out, but dispensed in to the cavity well. The soft foam peel and stick triangle base may fool you in a way that you may not notice that the wall tile or whatever you are mounting to is not perfectly in plane to the individual bar ends, thus you need to really go the extra step I did to eliminate any strain on any one particular corner of the base and it's cured adhesive. The bond will last only if it is in a stress free condition without your usual use. After it was all said and done, After about 3 days, (I weigh 150 lbs) I could lean out from the corner where I stand and it held, I also showed off (I had a pair of 12" bars on adjacent walls near a corner) to my dad by holding feet against the wall and holding on to the bars, that is more than half my weight on each pulling out and down from the wall (I only did this for 2 seconds), and was solid, So don't try that yourself but the adhesive bond IS that strong if you #1-clean the area well; and #2- mount the bars and bases to be free from misalignment to the wall so as not to stress the joining adhesive bond in any way when you tighten the mounting screws. It is so strong I don't know if I would trust not ripping the tile off of the wall with a large channel lock pliers if I wanted to remove it like they show you can, maybe some Wd-40 and thin wire and "saw motion" behind it to get it off. IDK never removed one and don't plan to. Perhaps it will give way to the twisting motion of a large gripping pliers. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product This shower grab bar looks great, was a breeze to install. It is a little pricey, but not having to drill into fancy tile and find a stud nakes it worthwhile. Fast shipping, installed in 10 minutes (not counting the 24 hour curing time for the adhesive). This is a solid product. May 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is extremely well designed and includes excellent installation instuctions. I bought a 12 inch and 30 inch set of no-drill grab bars and was willing to pay more for the no-drill feature so that I wouldn't have to drill holes in the ceramic tile. Good reviews calmed my fears that the product would not hold up to its intended function in the bathtub. I found the installation instructions extremely well written, so much so that it was obvious they were composed by English speaking, bright tech manual writers. There is no way any reasonably intelligent person cannot install these bars with perfection and precision. The grab bars are well designed and I would recommend them to anyone who desires to avoid drilling holes in their ceramic tile. Of course, only time will tell if they maintain their hold, but I have not seen any reviews that would suggest their hold deteriorates over time. There is one caveat: the ceramic tile must be in wet set cement, not just glued to the wall. The hold of the grab bar is only as good as the hold of the ceramic tile to the wall. October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love our grab bar Now that I'm getting older I worry about slipping in the shower, but didn't want to get involved with finding the studs in the wall, and drilling holes though the tiles. This product was perfect. Easy to install and seems to be very sturdy. December 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking Grab Bar True to its advertisement, the installation is easy and straightforward. The instruction is easy to follow, plus the video put out by Draad is helpful as well. At first, I thought the price may be a bit high. But after considering the need and cost of hiring a contractor if this is a screw mount item that needs drilling into tiles, the price is justified. One consideration though, if you have small tiles in your shower / bathroom wall and the sticking surface consists of grout lines, then you may consult with Draad first before buying this item. Draad does not say whether its products would work on surfaces that have grout lines or not. April 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised Instructions are right on. A very high quality product. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than drilling holes. My contractor installed it and said it was looked great to him and was not difficult to install at all. It seems like a great alternative to drilling holes in the tile. Also good if you need need a temporary bar. June 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product Grab bar is easy to install if directions are followed carefully. Take your time with installation. Adds needed safety for elderly in use of bathroom tub/shower. You will not be disappointed. August 18, 2016
