Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRDR Very Satisfied with no drill bars
The two bars went up easily. After reading a couple reviews, I carefully followed the cleaning procedures with light sanding with very fine sandpaper, and cleaned with acetone as well as the wipes. They've been up two weeks now. One horizontal and one at 45angle and support me at 200 lbs (No I didn't do a pull-up like the advertisement video!)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ReasonblyHandy German No Drilling Req'd Grab Bar
I reviewed the online (YouTube) installation video before deciding about purchase. I did not want to drill through ceramic tile and have to remove and patch later. Although the Nie Wieder Bohren (roughly translated as: No More Drilling) is more expensive, I consider it worth the price. Time will tell if my proper cleaning of the tile and prep work will keep the bars adhering to the tile.

We installed this bar in our master shower. It is wet-set stone tile. The bar installed easy and feels very solid.

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 Muggins Excellent Example of Skilled German Engineering
The customer reviews that are negative are because they did not prepare the surface properly.
(1) Use a Scotchbrite sponge with some Barkeepers' Friend of other type of cleanser. Scrub the surface thoroughly and then dry it.
(2) Use a piece of 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper and rub the tile surface where the bars will be attached, and then wipe away any dust.
(3) Clean surface thoroughly with acetone (better than rubbing alcohol) and then dry surface.
The install process is a piece of cake if you read the instructions and watch the YouTube video.
These bars are sold to Home Depot by Innovative Product Sales (out of NC) 800-961-5804. Call extension 101 and talk with Ken. Again the secret to a successful install is surface prep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smartshopper98 Great shower grip
This grip was easy to install, you have to use another shower for a day or so, but afterwards the grip looks like it was part of the shower from the beginning. It didn't require drilling so it didn't harm the surface of the shower. Great product and helps for support in the shower!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tom44 disappointed in product.
the bar was installed as specified. we then had a cleaning crew clean the bathroom. they apparently used a strong cleaner and bleach IN THE SHOWER. the next day the bar fell off during my shower. the adhesive looked like dry cottage cheese. no more of this for me. I drilled the tile and reinstalled the grab bars. I believe the bleach caused the item to fail.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al Moderatly easy installation, looks great, high quality materials.
I watched an installation video on Youtube and read the directions and the installation went smoothly. It's a very clever and neat way to attach the mounting plates to the wall. Be sure to note that the decorative rings that snap over the mounting plates must be rotated to the proper position in order for them to go in. To me it's a sign of the careful engineering of the product. It's only been up for 2 weeks so I don't have any long term experience yet.
