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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sobay5some 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mscoffee1 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sobay5some Disappointed
I bought and installed the 18" bar. After 3 weeks, it fell off my tiled shower wall when I slightly pulled on it. Both ends came off the tile completely clean, meaning, I do not see any remnants of the glue on the wall at all. I am not sure if this mean I did not clean the wall sufficiently well before applying the glue. (If Home Depot see this review, hope they can give me some feedback about what I experienced) I followed the instructions.
I returned the item. I plan to buy it and try again because I do like its looks and feel. This time make extra scrubbing / cleaning of the surface before I apply the glue. Will provide a review after this second try.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DudeHopper The exact answer to my problem
I needed to install a grab bar for my grandma inside my inlaws' tile shower. There was no backer or studs or anything where I needed them to be in order to make a standard grab bar work. I wasn't sure what to do until I stumbled upon this fastener-less application. It worked phenomenally! It was incredibly easy and it's a very safe application. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. Plus, if they decide they don't need the grab bar in the future, they can still remove it and there will be no holes. Awesome product!

NO DRILLING. REMARKABLE !!!! Have already recommended to QUITE a few people.
I hurt my lumbar spine BADLY falling onto my tailbone in the ladies room @ work & needed REAL support in the shower. No more cracking the window open & using that to hold on to!!! I prepared the bars for maintenance to install. Usually, I would be able to take care of the entire project; but I am not FULLY healed because the Workers Comp. Insurance Carrier is holding back on my treatments & recovery. Maintenance NEVER saw anything like this before. They were SO impressed with the product & ease of installation. When they came back after the adhesive cured, they couldn't believe how sturdy the bars were BEFORE finishing the job. My FEAR of showering after my injury has greatly decreased.
I now have REAL support in the shower.
NO MORE cracking the window open & using that to hold on to!!!
The supplier: nodrillingrequired.com TRULY stands behind their products with GREAT customer service!!!! Home Depot should really consider carrying ALL of their product lines.
