KOHLER RUBICON 16 IN. GRAB BAR IN VIBRANT BRUSHED Nickel. Easy install, solid grab bar with a nice brushed nickel finish. When installing safety grab bars it is important to either secure directly to wall framing or use wall anchors that are specifically designed for safety grab bar installation. A safety bar that is not anchored correctly could possibly fail if not installed properly

This is the second grab bar I'm installing, I learned some installation lessons with the first one! First I wanted to improve the safety in the shower, it's a manufactured shower surround, and as it's gotten older/more used, the floor has gotten smoother and more slippery. I didn't want the traditional Hospital looking grab bar, I wanted something with some style. Well I thought this 24" Kohler grab bar had the right look for my bath (and matched the other one), which seemed pretty sturdy after installation. Because of the manufactured shell was already installed, it was impossible to find 2 studs to attach it The grab bar comes with a nice template that has the drill holes clearly marked, HOWEVER, like the first one I installed the holes did not precisely line up with the holes on the hardware. So measure twice, and DOUBLE check with hardware, don't trust the template alone. Once mounted all went well, the mounting mechanism hides the mounting points. The grab bar is firmly mounted and looks great, it looks so great matched my 16" perfectly. I'm very pleased with the look. And I feel like I've made my shower more safe.

I wanted to improve the safety in the shower, it's a manufactured shower surround, and as it's gotten older/more used, the floor has gotten smoother and more slippery. In addition I want to hang my towel closer to the shower on a grab bar. I didn't want the traditional Hospital looking grab bar, I wanted something with some style. Well I thought this 16" Kohler grab bar had the right look for my bath (all chrome fixtures), and they seem pretty sturdy and looked good. Because of the manufactured shell was already installed, it was impossible to find 2 studs to attach it to, without ripping it out, even then I'm not positive studs would be in ideal (or near ideal location). The grab bar comes with a nice template that has the drill holes clearly marked, HOWEVER the holes did not precisely line up with the holes on the hardware. Each end was right but the distance between was off by more than 1/16" - Measure twice, and DOUBLE check with hardware. BEFORE drilling all 6 holes (-1 star). Once I got beyond the "hole" frustration, all went well, the grab bar is firmly mounted and looks great, it looks so great I'm going to get another (24") and mount it horizontally. I'm very pleased with the look and feel like I will have made my shower more safe.

Typical excellent quality from Kohler, heavy construction and clear instructions.................. This is an unbiased review that is unaffected by the fact that I received this product for free. As proof of impartiality, just click on my nickname and see the average of the ratings I have given over 300 reviews to date. ------- These grab bars from Kohler are heavier than some other brands, I will assume that makes them stronger and better able to assist heavier users. The finish, chrome in this case, is excellent and flawless, again unlike some others. ------- Installation was straightforward. Only wood screws are included, not any wall anchors. But then I am not even sure that wall anchors are allowed in ADA fixtures like these. There is a full size template to assist in locating the drilled holes for the mounting screws. The flanges that attach to the wall are removed from the grab bar and mounted first. Then the bar is pushed onto the pins in the mounting plates and set screws are used to lock it in place. When installing, I recommend positioning the bar so that the set screw holes are not seen if possible. The pins are tapered to insure a tight fit to the wall; push the bar against the wall while tightening the set screws and it will fit flush to the wall. ------- The end caps are removable but I do not think there is any purpose of that to the end user.

I used this long grab bar at the entrance to the shower. It is a very attractive design. Some grab bars look like an after thought but not this one. It is an excellent compliment to the other modern fixtures in that bathroom. I installed this bar almost vertically. I had to attach through tile so the installation was a slow patient process. It looks great, it works great and might save me from an injury one day.

This is a really good looking grab bar. I used this shorter 9 inch near the toilet and a matching longer one near the shower. The bar is substantial, nice and thick with an appealing design. I used this bar horizontally and installed about 30 inches from the floor to span up to 39 inches. Installation was tough since i had to bore the screw holes into tile.

KOHLER Rubicon 9 in. Grab Bar in Polished Chrome - if you need an assist bar this is for you! The Kohler Rubicon grab bar is a grab bar gone modern. Like many boomers, I am preparing my new home for the future and this grab bar is perfect. The polished chrome finish is beautiful and the quality for this price range is very good. If you are starting from scratch Kohler has the Rubicon collection of faucets and hardware and this is part of that collection. I have Kohler's Alteo collection in my shower and bathroom and this Rubicon assist bar with its modern design will be a nice match. Besides the beautiful design one of the things I appreciated with this Kohler product is the ease of installation. A template for screw placement and the hardware and tool is included so all you really need is a drill. I would advise placing this vertically so you can install both screws in a stud. The end caps are installed over a post with a peg instead of the usual mounting plates. I really like this because it really holds the fixture and does not loosen like the thin mounting plates with set screws you see with other brands. One thing for sure with any bath fixture is you want to use the template and a level to get the screws in the exact alignment, if you are off by a 1/4 of an inch you most likely will have to drill another hole. This entire bar is 12 inches in length, the bar itself is 9 inches long so it is perfect for a shower entry or near a toilet, the bar is 7/8 inches in diameter, which is a little smaller than the 16 inch bar. This bar isn't Kohler's highest end product but this bar is fairly strong when installed and it is safe for up to 300 lbs of weight. I think it will look perfect in my new shower. It is manufactured in China (as is everything these days) and does have a 180 day return warranty, although Kohler states there is a lifetime warranty on the finish and workmanship. I have found most of the faucet manufacturers stand by their warranties so hopefully any problems would be obvious in 6 months. I recommend the Rubicon Grab Bar, it is very modern and great for contemporary bath décor, the finish is a beautiful modern chrome and it installs easily.
