Attractive and Functional. Love this grab bar. I wanted something that didn’t look institutional and this really fit the bill. Very easy to install and now I don’t worry about slipping getting out of the shower.

    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.

    Just the ticket for our wall next to our Kohler low toilet seat. We are not getting any younger and these help when you need it and our granddaughter also said she likes to hold on when she slides off the toilet. Easy to mount by first installing the mounting plates but the screws provided are designed for a stud which in this application was not the right spot so I used super heavy duty drywall anchors which hide nicely behind the mounting plate. Do pay attention to the warning to measure carefully as the last photo shows the provided templet for mounting was off by 1/8".

    Kohler always makes fantastic bathroom products and here is just another example. The quality of this grab bar is high end and it has a very solid feel to it. It is heavy but not to heavy and it gives me just a little more confidence into the safety of this product (especially as they are for older folks to safely get into and out of the tub and shower. Great product!!

    A stylish, sturdy safety product. We are updating our bathroom to accommodate ageing in place and grab bars are important components of it. The brushed nickle finish perfectly matches the other new fixtures. Installation is quite easy with the enclosed template to mark where to drill pilot holes. Cool feature, the mounting posts are easily screwed to the wall with no top or bottom, making it really easy to level. We installed the post in a vertical position by the tub to facilitate climbing in and out. When screwed to studs, it is rock solid.

    The Kohler Rubicon 24 inch grab bar in polished chrome looks great and is also very sturdy. The thick bar makes it safe to grab and hold onto when in a walk in shower or bathtub. It has a highly polished chrome finish which looks great and should last for years. The grab bar comes with a cardboard template to get the mounting holes perfectly aligned. I was able to mount one side of the bar into a location with a wall stud and used large wall anchors for the other end of the bar. It feels very strong and I was able to put my weight on the bar without any problems. It is recommended if you are doing a new bathroom or remodel to install a piece of thick wood block behind the wall to mount the grab bar for the most strength. I mounted the bar in the horizontal position and may purchase another to mount vertically on the other shower wall. I am very pleased with the strength and great looks if this Kohler grab bar.

    This is a good basic and strong grab bar for your shower or bath. It is perfect for stepping into the shower when you need a handle to keep your balance as you step in - a great bit of confidence that can help anyone of any age. The finish is very nice, brushed nickel and the style is very much a modern look with very square corners and square finish flanges

    Kohler's Rubicon grab bar is sturdy and attractive in brushed nickel, but what I did not realize when ordering is this bar is best for a horizontal installation (more on that in a bit). It comes in 16" and 24" lengths so you can install it firmly in studs (depending on how your house is framed); in my (limited) experience, you definitely want to install a grab bar directly into the wall framing. Most grab bars come in sizes that are not multiples of 16 or 24 inches - to hit the framing with those, you either install at an angle or vertically. I have 16" framing and had planned to install this bar vertically, but the way it attaches (set screw) makes a vertical installation somewhat unattractive. It will be repurposed as a angled horizontal bar in another of our bathrooms.

    This grab bar comes in a modern, clean design. i have had great experience with Kohler products and this one does not disappoint. The material quality was excellent and it feels strong and sturdy in the hand. The package includes everything I need for the installation: screws, a manual and a template for drilling holes. The installation is pretty straightforward and I would definitely recommend this in a bathroom that features a modern, clean look.

    KOHLER Rubicon 9 inch Grab Bar in Vibrant Brushed Nickel is attractive and functional. Installs easily. Included with the grab bar are directions, screws and an alan wrench to assist in installation. The screws are attached under a decorative escutcheon plate, measuring 2.25 inches in diameter, thus a nice finished installation and the screws aren't visible. We installed two grab bars, the 9 inch bar vertically to assist with getting in and out of the tub safely. This 9 inch bar supports up to 300 pounds!! It's a win win, functionality and an attractive addition. Once again, Kohler never ceases to impress.

    We did have a suction grab bar that on the wall in the shower but it became unsafe as the water that being sprayed was starting to make it unstable. That is, my wife grabbed hold of it while removing herself from the tub and the suction pad came away. We went for this particular grab bar for two main reasons. One is that we do have other KOHLER products and not one has ever caused us an issue. This beautiful chrome bar has one main screw hole and two slotted screw holes which are ideal if slightly out with the screw fasteners in order for the unit to slot into the base. This is secured by way of using the supplied allen key Because that particular shower wall is hollow, I installed it just outside using my own wood screws as the supplied ones were too long at 2-1/2 inches long. The supplied excellent template allows no room for error and provides a 300Lbs of support. The 9 inches length is ideal for grabbing hold of. A perfect solution for a much needed safety issue

    Modern! Sleek! That was the first thing I thought of when I unwrapped this grab bar. I got it for my Mom, but I think I want to keep it! This grab bar is solid and well-constructed. The actual bar is very wide (see pictures) so it will feel good in larger hands as well. Everything that you need to install the grab bar is included but since it is 24”, if you are mounting it horizontally only one bolt will hit a stud if you do not have blocking. We just renovated my mother’s shower so we installed blocking. The grab bar is solid and a beautiful – highly recommend.

    I am very impressed with this KOHLER Rubicon 24 in. Grab Bar in Brushed Nickel.. It is highly recommended for the safety of the elderly people inside the house, especially in the bathroom. The product is very well made and it is corrosion free. It is very sturdy and has an amazing 500 lbs rating. The best part I like is the installation; it is so easy to do it thanks to the included Cardboard Template, which is the engineering drawing, and that was very helpful to make the necessary holes on the wall at the exact place. It is a foolproof piece of art and much needed help for the easy and perfect installation. With that piece of cardboard template, anybody can install this grab bar very easily without any hesitation and skepticism. The grab bar looks pretty and can be installed with any decor. Thanks, Kohler for the great product.
