Customer Questions & Answers

will this product screw into the narrow edge of a 2x4?

Asked by: Anonymous
Only 2 screws would hit he 2x4 They make a mounting system that can be used where there is no stud. I've never used it but it looks very sturdy. I installed this in new construction so was able to put blocks of wood between the studs where the bar was going to be mounted.

How to properly mount grab bar?

I want to install this 36" grab/safety bar in our ceramic tile shower. What is the proper way to mount it? I do not think I will be able to use the studs.
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm an experienced amateur and make no claim to doing this the best way. I find a solid ceramic tile enclosure around the tub and shower to be one of the easier installs. The method I'm most confident with is to lay the grab bar in the position where the tub/shower user will find it most useful and determine which tile squares to drill into. I put masking tape over those squares where I plan to drill holes, put the grab bar back in place on top of the tape and use a Sharpie to make pin point dot at the center of the 3 holes at each end of the bar that I plan to use. I then use spring loaded center punch to put a slight ding in the ceramic right underneath the Sharpie "dots". I want the drill bit to start cutting in that slight indentation. I use variable speed drill with a 5/8" carbide tile bit (purchased at Home Depot) to slowly drill a quarter inch or so into the tile surface at each of the black marks. The purpose of the masking tape is to keep the bit from wandering. If those holes are more than an 1/8" off it's going to become a messy installation. I prefer to avoid the grouted areas between the tiles and drill into solid ceramic tile (not too near the edges). I'll be using 5/8" Toggler Alligator anchors which I find very versalile and easy to use. At this point I've drilled through the ceramic tile deeply enoughto reduce the risk of cracking the tile and I'll now use a 5/8" SDS hammer drill bit to complete drilling the hole to the proper depth for the anchor. I could have used the ceramic bit in the standard drill to do several inches in but I'm trying to preserve the bit and save time by switching to a hammer drill. And if I started immediately with the hammer drill, I'm more like to crack the tile and wander off the marked hole. If I take my time I can tell if the SDS bit is running into a stud (that's a good thing, right!) Ideally I'd put all the grab bar screws into studs - but I'm not much good at accurately finding studs behind ceramic tile and I have no idea of exactly what's behind that tile, especially on an exterior wall. If there's an air space back there, the alligators will poke into it and spread their "wings". If I get through the tile and my bit is still finding resistance, I'll poke a nail into the hole and if it hits a stud, I stop drilling and a pan head screw without the Alligator anchor in that particular hole. If I go into a stud with a 5/8" bit too deeply, I can still use the Alligator achor - no problem. How deep to hammer drill if you don't hit an obstruction? Just a bit deeper than the length of your Alligator anchors. BTW, these are made of different material than ordinary plastic anchors and I do NOT recommend those. I used to use toggle bolts but it required a half inch hole in the ceramic for each screw and I never knew what length of bolt to push through the hole. If the ceramic is solid and sound I'm thinking the grab bar anchors will last as long as the tile is there. Good luck! Fitz PS I recommend a fresh SDS bit in a hammer drill as well as a slow drilling of no more than 1/2" deep pilot holes. I don't use water to cool the bits. I use slow, steady pressure with sharp bits and a gentle touch with the hammer drill as well. It's all about not breaking up the ceramic tile and getting a tight hole for the fasteners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy grab bar I installed the grab bar on a tiled bath tub wall. I did not use the stainless screws since my fastners (molly bolts) were used on a hollow wall. If you use screws into a stud, just make pilot holes and you will have no problem. I do not recommend brass screws- they are softer than stainless steel screws. If you want a super sturdy attachment on a hollow wall use wingits (google this). If you are drilling into tile, it is worth the money to buy a drill bit made to drill through tile- not an ordinary masonary bit. Mark your holes using the grab bar plate as a template but start the holes about 1/4 inch in toward the center if you are using molly bolts. Otherwise the holes may go beyond the cover plate. Note- for molly bolts you will need a large enough hole to fit the molly bolt into the wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to install properly The holes are spaced too far apart to secure horizontally to studs that are spaced at the normal 16" OC. The inside holes are approximately 35" apart and the outer holes are 36" apart which is far too wide. I am going to return it for the 32" bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay for the price. One of the covers for the installation brackets did not "snap" over the installation bracket; required hitting it with a hammer resulting in denting the cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and very strong with nice finish I needed a grab rail for the lower stairs in my bi-level house for my Mother-in-Law with a bad knee. She loves this rail and feels secure climbing up and down the stairs again. It was easy to install. I would highly recommend you get this model with the concealed fasteners since I was only able to put 2 screws on each end into the studs, and this way the extra holes are covered and it looks good. Two screws on each end into the studs are more than adequate for a secure installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great price, dented product The stainless steel bar was at a price I could not resist. Shipping was free and reasonably prompt. The bar was dented, but still usable. I was satisfied. It has not yet been installed.
