A drill and a screw gun. Easy to install when directions are followed.
Yes, but you would still want to try to find a stud.
Thank you. We would not be able to give any advice on the layout of these bars since we don't know the layout of your application.
I don't remember the hole size of the mounting holes. I would get a 3/16 mason bit and plan on using 2" deck screws through the 3 holes on each end. Don't drill through the sheetrock with it. Stop after the tile and use an 1/8" bit to go deeper through the wall and see which holes have a stud or just sheetrock behind them. If you're lucky you might find a stud behind each end of the bar and get at least one screw into a stud on either end of the bar. The holes that only find sheetrock under the tile, I would use shorter grabber screws or drywall screws.

Thank you. They are twist on.
Thank you. The part is smooth.
The flange is 3.07in. diameter.
Yes. Just make sure that you mount it with a lead or plastic shield that goes into the backer board or thin set if there's no studs behind. Be careful drilling into the tile so that you don't shatter it.
I don't see why not. Made of SS powder coated white. They also come in raw Stainless Steel or a brushed finish.
