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.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PenSamurai What brilliant engineering
We were so excited to find something that didn't require drilling into the tire. Installation is a breeze, but it helps to watch the YouTube video. Just Google it. Despite not having to drill, it is very sturdy. The only thing I don't like about it is that there is a hole in between the cover and the bar, so potentially water could seep in there and mold, but it's removable, so you could clean it.
We haven't needed to remove it, so we don't know how hard that process is, but installing it was easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teen German Technology @ it's BEST!!!!!
NO DRILLING. REMARKABLE !!!! Have already recommended to QUITE a few people.
SO STURDY. 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 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChefSage Great product, especially if drilling is an issue
I mounted this on a granite shower wall where drilling would have been a significant issue for me. I took great care to prepare the surface exactly as defined in the instructions. From everything I have read this is crucial for strong, permanent adhesion. Most of the cost of this product is the mounting kit itself. After 3 weeks of use, I have had no problems. The grab bar is very attractive.
