As I remodel our bathrooms I am including grab bars in the showers. As we remodel our bathrooms part of the plan is to make them more age friendly. We are now removing a tub to install a walk in shower. and it will contain several grab bars. I ordered this grab bar at the start of the project so I will have support for where I want it located in the end of the shower prior to putting up my shower surround. It is sturdy and well made and after attaching the trim rings cover the mounting screws.

This 18" grab bar is mostly installed vertically at the edge of the shower/tub stall to assist user in and out of the tub. You will need specially backing in the wall if you plan to install this horizontally since most wall stubs are 18" on center. Like the fact the anchoring screws are covered up by an escutcheon. This escutcheon is snapped on to the base plate. Over all, it is a beautifully finished and I don't notice any water mark leave behind when it gets wet. I took off one star because I notice that escutcheon is not properly centered to the grab bar. It leaves one side tight to the bar and a large opening gap on the other side.

This grab bar in brushed nickel is just the right size for the short end of my tub tiled wall. It's perfect to get the support I need to get into the tub with ease. The finish is great and the weight is nice and light. It's a bit tricky to get in, I had to use shorter screws to get the correct angle of the screw as the working room is limited. It has a nice clean look and it's very reasonably priced.

We’re remodeling our tub/shower enclosure and will be installing this product. There is no grab bar in our current shower, and we’re finding that as we age our balance and footing aren’t what they used to be. While we want to provide for our safety, we also want to avoid the commercial look that some of these grab bars tend to have. We selected this bar because we find the satin nickel finish and the decorative flanges to be attractive and the 18” length, and 1-1/4 diameter to be diminutive yet useful. It also has a solid, sturdy look and feel. The diameter is just right to grab, particularly for someone with smaller hands. The bar comes with 6 stainless screws, 2-1/2 in long. We like that the flange covers snap into place over the flanges at each end to hide the screws (see picture). Since we’re re-tiling our area, we’ll have the benefit of being able to place studs at the mounting location. But if you don’t have that luxury, the 5 mounting holes in each flange, should also be helpful when aligning and securing the bar to a wall stud. This is an attractive, sturdy and diminutive bath fixture that we would recommend to a friend.

I gave this grab bar a top rating for one reason, every where I go I see this same grab bar being used in commercial establishments and in most cases you can tell that it has been in use for a long time and still looks great and is still firmly fastened to the wall. I wanted something that could be permentaly mounted to replace the suction cup grab bars I have been using for a couple of years that you could never be sure when you grabbed them that they were still firmly attached.

The 36 in. x 1-1/4 in. Concealed Screw ADA-Compliant Grab Bar from Franklin Brass is a great, beautiful and very strong product.You may not know when you will need it, so it is good to have one of this by your toilet and also in the shower.Since it is stainless steel, you can be rest assured that it will not rust. Even though it is a great product, this size may not be suitable for everyone, since you may not find the 2 studs at 36 inches apart by your toilet or shower. It is rated for 500 lbs, and to get that benefit, it should be installed on sturdy studs rather than on sheetrock using sheetrock anchors. So before you buy, check your stud distance where you want to install. This is a great product, and they do sell it at different lengths and shapes. Select the appropriate size for you.

This ADA compliant grab bar is well made and is rated for up to 500 pounds. Bar is 36 inches long and my wall studs are a typical 16 inches on center, so I had choice of mounting on angle or buy optional wall kit that supports behind wall if there is no stud. I preferred to mount on studs, so I mounted on angle. I also have a seat in the shower, so it is recommended to mount at angle to assist in setting down and standing up. Installation is very simple once studs are located. It only took me about 1 hour to figure where and how I wanted to mount it and then install it. Looks good and adds safety to my shower.

This grab bar installed easily and looks great in the tub. 1-1/4 is the perfect diameter for a grab bar. I installed the grab bar on an angle, on the back wall of the shower; lower at the rear of the tub and higher towards the shower and tub controls, to provide for multiple hand hold positions. 6 Phillips head mounting screws are included, 3 for each side of the bar. After locating the wall studs, I drilled a pilot hole at each screw position and fastened the mounting plates to the wall using the provided screws, and then slide the decorative trim over the mounting plate to hide the screw heads. Installation was very easy and the installed grab bar is very sturdy and looks good, and only protrudes 2-1/2 inches from the shower wall. The quality of this grab bar is excellent, and I especially like that the escutcheon plate that covers the mounting plate is decorative instead of smooth.

I've put in several of these bars for family & friends both horizontally & vertically, and each time I do, it's a little different installing them due to factors like if there is a stud behind where you want to place the bar, to if there is tile on the wall or 2x10 blocking behind the wall. For tile & stone you'll need a special drill bit, if there is no stud & you have sheetrock or plaster, you'll need an anchor of some type (like a Molly bolt or plastic anchor) This bar is well made and the covers that go over the screws make it look a little less "industrial" or "institutional". The bar is 27" long from end to end & the screws are 2 1/2" long, the diameter is 1 1/2". If you have 24" OC studs this bar will work great horizontally and hit 2 studs, but if not & you have the normal 16" OC, you might get lucky & hit one stud, so you'll need the anchors. If you are designing or remodeling your bathroom I suggest putting up 2x10 or 2x12 blocking all the way around the tub or shower about 30" up so you can later put the bars anywhere you need them between 33"-36" off the floor. The directions are in English, Spanish & French. This bar will last a lifetime and keep looking great for just as long. If you found this review helpful please click on the thumbs up button, thanks!

My mom needs to be steadied in & out of tub and this is a heavy weight and sturdy grab bar. I had one but she prefers the other bathroom so I ordered this one. It says it will hold up to 500 lbs but I feel that would be if it is in studs. Because of where we had to install it I could hit the stud with 1 of the 3 screws in each end so I did put steel screw in mollies for each of the other 2. Mom only weighs 110 so it will do just fine. Secure on the wall and ready for her next bath. Nicely designed and finish is great. Concealed screws makes it look polished and well thought out.

This grab bar has easy installation and strong support. As we get older the danger of falls becomes greater. It's almost inevitable due to changes in the brain, muscles and inner ears. I had attached a grab bar that used high strength suction cups at the entrance to my wife's shower when I remodeled it several years ago but it was beginning to show its age and just didn't stay attached like it should. I decided to look for a more permanent solution. This grab bar comes in different finishes so I was able to match the fixtures in the bathroom. It also uses long screws to attach the grab bar to the studs behind the tile in the shower to provide strong support. It recommends 2 screws on each end to get 500 pounds of support. I used 3 on each end for a little extra. There are also instructions on how to use anchors if needed. If you have never drilled through tile before you may want to watch a few Youtube videos to find out how to do it without damaging your tile. 2 extra hints: You may want to squirt a little silicon caulk in the drill holes before inserting the screws for extra water resistance: Buy a couple of extra 1/4" carbide drill bits

I have installed 4 grab bars from different manufactures within the last month or so. After installing my first one and discovering how easy and practical it is, i love having them. This one is very nice looking and solid. The grab bar diameter, where your hand holds it, is very comfortable. Polished metal makes it easy to keep clean and when wet, very comfortable and secure for you to hold on to. Installation in my case was direct to a stud, but it comes with screws. The mounted to wall part is covered by snap on caps that are made of the same material as the bar. Good and easy instructions included. Worth looking at.

This is a really sturdy grab bar. We placed it near our shower to make transfers easier and it matches our bathroom hardware nicely. The decorative flanges make it possible to hide the unslightly screws. They screws that were provided with the grab bar were only good if you were placing this into a stud. I would advise if installing on drywall utilize shorter screws than provided with drywall anchors (not provided). This is how the instructions that came with the grab bar advised.

    t 24 in. x 1-1/4 in. Concealed Screw ADA-Compliant Grab Bar with Decorative Flanges in Brushed Nickel is just what I needed and wanted with my balance being off. This grab bar provides so much stability when in the shower. This grab bar was very easy to install. I used my level to make sure the grab bar was exactly vertical and used my Home Depot stud finder to locate studs to anchor the grab bar to. I strongly recommend this grab bar for all showers.

    The Franklin Brass grab bar in a satin nickel finish has a nice look but is also capable of withstanding a great deal of force which is perfect in my application. I have a deck on a steep grade and when I am trying to get around it I always have a hard time so installing these will work perfectly on my 6 x 6 posts. I can also tie off to them to pull up dead fall and brush.They are rated for 500lbs and come with some nice 2 1/2" stainless steel screws. The flanges slide nicely without marring up the surface and make concealing screw heads both easy and attractive. Will be nice to feel safe when grabbing hold. Thanks.

    This Grand bar is very easy to install. I like the brushed nickel appearance matches well with other brushed nickel that is not apart of same brand. The grab bar is real easy to install just follow the direction and make sure you have it connected to a stud for optimal use.for strengths and durability. Three screws for each end and the cover plate snaps on with ease to cover the screws.

    For safety around the tub or toilet you just can't do any better. The grab bar is a must around tubs and toilets for both seniors and the rest of the family. Anyone can slip and fall and this can prevent it. Mine already has.It mounts easily with hand tools and it looks good once it's in place. The brushed nickle finish improves the bathroom decor. The most important thing is that it installs easily and they're far enough out from the wall to offer a good griping surface to prevent falls.

    Nice grab bar for tubs and showers; comes with the stainless steel screws for typical mounting applications. The brushed nickel finish shows less spotting than chrome; the finish is smooth, not textured like some, so it is easier to clean, but as a trade-off, a bit more slippery. Mounting the bar at a 45^ angle in the shower allows for easy, safe leg shaving or foot washing.

    At 18 inches this bar requires an angled installation between studs or a structural modification to standard studs for a horizontal installation. They give you plenty points of contact, there are ten 2.5 inch stainless screws and tools-free cover plates. The construction is stainless steel, I checked it inside and out with a magnet, so it should provide years of service. The instructions are complete and easy to follow, and they emphasize safety , since fixing to structure is required to meet the grab bar ADA specifications.

    Easy to mount, sturdy and durable. I used the widgit anchor system which is sold separately but the preferred anchor. The grab bar has a good feel to it and its 1 1/4" diameter fits the hand well. Grab bars are a essential item when you reach a certain age and if you have to use it rest assure this one will perform better than expected. The brushed nickle finish is easy to clean with a simple wipe down and is good about not "spotting" with soap residue.
