Yes I had bath fitter covert my tub to a shower
Some of our grab bars are installed at an angle to help anyone pull up or grab better. That worked well to match the stud gap. Our tiled areas are over concrete so we weren't as concerned to find a stud. We used longer ones vertically as well as at angles. In our basement you have two steps up to the bathroom. The grab bar is used as a stair rail. When sitting on the toilet the same grab bar is in front of you to pull up. In our shower with seat we have them vertical to pull up and grab. Same in our bath. It really helps and has made a huge safety improvement in our home.
I installed a 1x4x6 oak board to span the misplaced studs. The board is securely screwed into the studs; the bar securely screwed into the board. Countersunk the screw heads, caulked in wood buttons, painted the board the same color as the wall. My goal was maximum anchoring. Very pleased with the result.
Rick, Thank you for your question. You cannot cut grab bars to length. This will compromise the functionality and void the warranty. If you need a smaller grab bar, check out model # 41612. Best, Customer Care Team
Charley, Thank you for your question. This product is only available in the Polished Chrome Finish. Take a look at model # DF5918-BN. It is the same size, looks similar and is available in Brushed Nickel. Best, Customer Care Team

Ideally on a stud, but there are special "grab bar fasteners" that are really beefy molly bolts that should be used to support the weight load of an adult.
