Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey One Minor Glitch
This tub bar is great! My mother enjoys being able to have the added assistance and safety getting in and out of the bath tub.
Installation was a snap, however, the one small complaint that I have is that the glue which holds the rubber installation pads in place is not strong enough. After only two uses the tub bar began to come off the side of the tub. The problem was that the rubber pads between the grip arms and the tub had come loose from the metal.
I took all six pads off and re-glued them with superglue and now it is firmly in place and shows no signs of slippage after a number of uses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Axekick Excellent product
This product is excellent for serving it's intended purpose. I purchased it for my mothers shower/bathtub which lacks a nearby window sill or towel bar or any other feature she can use to maintain her balance while stepping into or out of the tub.
If you read the instructions they are straight forward and it installs easily. Once installed it is not completely stable as it can move slightly from side-to-side. I know of no way to make it completely secure, It will aide in balancing when stepping into or out of the tub. As well I applied considerable lateral pressure to ensure it would catch her if she started to fall. It withstood the considerable force I applied.
It is relatively attractive and can easily be hidden behind the shower curtain(if applicable)
While my mother is a senior I would recommend this product to anyone who has a bathtub that is lacking another means of acquiring support while entering or exiting the tub.(Most tubs have a window sill or towel bar that could be used.) A fall in the bathtub is dangerous for anyone, regardless of age or condition, potentially fatal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Slippery Good Product - But...
This probably works very well on a tub with straight sides, however, it would not work well on the garden type tub I had with rounded sides. I would not recommend this product unless your tub walls are square and straight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tagalong excellent safety option
I was looking for an additional safety bar. The suction grip bars are not safe and I didn't want
any drilling for the other type of bar. What a help to find this tub gripper. It is so simple to put in --
anybody can do it--it can be placed on either side of tub or the middle. It is very safe since I push
down as I grab the bar--so it is not going to slip out--it does no damage to tub. My congratulations
to whoever designed this very safe, simple and economical safety bar! Thank you so much--I can
get in and out of tub safely now

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3424 This product was exactly what I needed.
I recently had knee surgery and had difficulty getting in and out of the tub, so this product is perfect. I am now able to get in and out with no problem at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElPasoMike problem solved with this product
I needed something to help a friend get in and out of a fiberglass shower/tub after she had a fall in the bath room.
This product was easy to install, it was easy try in different locations until we got it just write. Now she feels safe in her bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russ Simple, Affordable, Secure
Even though I have a larger bathtub with wide, curved edges this was easy to install, not that expensive, and really grips tightly. It has helped an older relative get in and out of a deep bathtub much more securely.
