Questions & Answers


What is required for installation in a one piece acrylic shower?

Asked by Sue September 30, 2020

A drill and a screw gun. Easy to install when directions are followed.

Can this be used with a tub surround?

Asked by Dee September 15, 2020

Yes, but you would still want to try to find a stud.

Would 2 36 inch bars work, horizontal to each other, to both get out of the tub as well as for th...

Asked by Arl September 15, 2020

I purchased 3 such bars: two for bathtubs and one for a shower. They work fine. The delivery was one day later than expected.

I need to install over shower tile. What size drill bit do I need to drill the tile?

Asked by Neil August 11, 2020

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.

installation cost?

Asked by Marguerite July 17, 2020

Boyght it, had a friend install it in about 20 minutes. Works great

Are eschonces twist on or pressure held?

Asked by Gary May 30, 2020

Thank you. They are twist on.

Is the grab part of the handle smooth or stippled?

Asked by Fletcher May 27, 2020

Thank you. The part is smooth.

What’s the diameter of the flange?

Asked by Interested December 20, 2019

The flange is 3.07in. diameter.

Can this grab bar be installed on a ceramic tile shower wall?

Asked by handyman June 18, 2019

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.

Can this be used outside on a wall?

Asked by Paul October 10, 2017

I don't see why not. Made of SS powder coated white. They also come in raw Stainless Steel or a brushed finish.

I have a fracture uncle, and standing up from the toilet was very difficult, after pudding Glacier Bay Grab Bar everything was difference, I actually have a place to grab on, and push myself up… the only thing was I try to install it with the regular’s screw that the item brings, but it didn’t hood up… I purchase difference drywall anchors of 100 lbs, following the installation and the clean look, it was the best product

An attractive, ergonomic grab bar
This grab bar is metal painted white. The bar is thick, 1 3/8” in diameter, ergonomically pleasant to hold onto. It’s smooth, not textured -- I like that feeling, and it's easier to keep clean than a textured surface. It’s stronger than a plastic bar. It’s not as cold to touch as unpainted stainless steel or brass would be. The package has illustrations suggesting the height to position the bar near a toilet or in a tub or in a shower. The galvanized mounting plates are covered after installation by an escutcheon at each end of the bar, making an attractive bar when installed, with no screw heads showing. The two round galvanized mounting plates each have three two-inch Phillips head screws, making six holes necessary for mounting the grab bar according to the instructions, and for the full 500 pound load bearing capacity. The instructions say “all screws must be firmly mounted into a wood stud”. The typical stud is 1 1/2” wide, and the the galvanized mounting plate is 3” in diameter. If you do use three screws, the two holes astride the bar are 1 1/8” apart, too far apart to mount securely into the same 1 1/2” stud. The mounting plate hole at the top and bottom (or right and left end) of the bar is centered, and its screw can go into the center of the stud. So, if you want the full 500 pound load carrying capacity of the grab bar, you’ll need to get sturdy wallboard anchors, perhaps the WingIts studless installation fasteners mentioned on the package. The package notes that the grab bar is compatible with WingIts studless installation fasteners for tile or drywall that will support 600 pounds -- far more than we need, for we just want something to hold onto while lifting one leg to wash it, and I’m wary of drilling six holes in my tile shower wall. We may mount it with just one large screw into a stud at the top of the top mounting plate and one at the bottom of the bottom mounting plate -- you cannot put a screw through the center of the holding plate, for you don’t have access to that. We’re experimenting with a suction-held plastic grab bar to find the appropriate location for our permanent grab bar, given that we’re tall and have no kids at home. This is an attractive, ergonomic grab bar, but it calls for six screws into your shower wall and will require drywall anchors that are not supplied.

Perfect Addition to Our Shower
Installation was straight forward - very simple. The grab bar has made our master shower much safer now. I highly recommend this product for those dealing with the potential of slipping in the shower.
