Answers

You will only be able to attach it to one stud. The other end you would have to use the included wall hardware to attach the other end.

What grade of stainless steel is used?

Asked by Ed August 10, 2020

Answers

Not sure of the grade of stainless but I put three of these bars in our shower for my wife about 6 years ago and there has been no sign of rust or loosening. If installed properly they are very safe and dependable.

can this bar be installed on plastic

Asked by royce August 6, 2020

Answers

You can install this bar on any particular surface, but the bar must be fastened into something strong behind that surface. If the surface is flexible, or flimsy, you need to have backup behind it. One method is to put wood blocking behind a flexible surface and screw the bar through the surface into the wood backing.

what else do I need to install this

Asked by jr July 26, 2020

Answers

You only need a screwdriver and possibly some screws if you can't use the ones included with the bar in your situation. The only other requirement for installation to be very secure is that you have a good backing material behind the wall to screw into if you can't hit studs. In my case, I securely installed a 14.5" length of 1x8 pine board horizontally between studs centered at the height above the floor where I wanted to mount the bar. I can lift my entire 235 pound body off the floor on this bar with no movement of the bar at all. I had to fit two backer boards in two stud spaces since neither end of the bar would have landed on a stud in the location in the shower where I wanted it. My wall studs were on 16" center spacing.

DIY Drilling and Secret Tips
The final result is satisfactory even great but a few problems came up during installation. Google search and Youtube videos really helped solve them. The instructions state 1/8 inch drill bit but the screws are bigger. We bought 1/8 inch carbide tip for tile but screws were too big so I tried skinnier screws. Initial start hole was difficult from slipping on the tile plus one carbide tip broke off. After watching expert DIY professionals, using masking tape and 2 types of drill bits made it much easier. We bought more carbide drill bits but with 4 different sizes. I redid the holes using 3/16 carbide tile tip to drill thru tile then changed to #12 wood drill tip for wood. After the bigger holes were drilled, I used instant glue on the screw shafts to adhere to the inside wall or they would be loose. (The instructions really should have recommended a size in between the 1/8 inch drill tip and the larger screws in the package.) This was for our mother and it saved us some money for labor by doing it.

BUYER BEWARE!
Purchaesd this grab bar, the Wingits anchors, and Wingits drill bit, as the packaging for the grab bar indicated that it was Wingits compatible. All items were merchandised together and the use of a specific wall anchor SHOULD indicate that these products have been tested to determine that they are, in fact, compatible. This is not the case. Shame on Home Depot for such misleading packaging and display! To make the system work, I had to break apart the anchor system and use indelendently - but the end result still shows the location of 3 of the 4 anchors. Only able to include one photo with this review

Best decision i have made for safety
As a senior i have needed a grab bar for a while To keep my balance. I was actually using the shower curtain. This Glaclier Bay grab bar took some planning to get both ends into studs but installed perfectly by following directions. I even installed the towel hook to avoid reaching over to the vanity for towel. Handy man wanted $300.00, i did it for price of bar and hook. Less then $50.00. Bar is stainless with stainless screws and solid as a rock. Never felt more safe!!!

This bar was rather easy to install, but takes a couple of hours. (Finding the studs took the most time.) It's very strong and secure. We bought two of them; one for a bathroom shower and one for the garage stairs.

So easy to install, be sure to use a large enough drill when setting into wooden wall studs. I have installed 2 of these, both were very easy, be sure to find wall studs before starting. There are plenty of holes to mount screws. A very solid grab bar.
