The bar should be removed, the glue cleaned off the ends and on the wall. Clean the surface thoroughly and repeat the installation process. This time make sure sufficient time has passed (24hours +) before the bar is put onto the anchors. My experience with the bar slipping was due to insufficient wait time before I attached the bar ends to the anchors. It slipped after one day. In your case I am wondering if the 30 inch bar, having more weight than shorter bars may be the cause of slippage. Insufficient cure time will make the anchor not stable. Slipping after several months may be caused by marginal cure time plus the heavier 30 inch bar. Good luck with the re-install.

You can loosen the bond by using a razor knife around all three sides. You can then use some acetone around the adapter and wait 30 minutes and then use long handled pliers to apply clockwise torsion to remove.

Easy to Install and Structurally Strong
I too did not want to drill through the walls of my shower. However I was also concerned that the grab bar installation would be structurally sound. This was a clever and relatively simple solution to my problem.

So simply to install. Our refrigerator on our boat did not have a handle. Easy fix and eliminated the constant fingerprints from the stainless steel.

Installation was pretty straight forward. The only gotcha is the brackets were not welded symmetrically. When I went to attach the bars to the brackets after the resin had cured, the holes did not line up. Took a minute to realize I need to rotate the bars 180 degrees because the connectors were not welded on symmetrically. There is a left and right side (or bottom and top).

This was not available in my local stores but my online delivery was quick & included all necessary parts. Instructions & video were detailed and very helpful. I chose to let mine cure for 48 hours but 24 should suffice. Bar is sturdy and doesn’t budge when tugged on. It also blends well with my decor. I highly recommend and think this should be added to the store shelves.

Fantastic product. If you follow the instructions precisely, have patience, and use a level to ensure straight installation the finished product is super. I am definitely not a DIY person, and have long nails which make a lot of projects a bit harder but I did a set of bars in each of two bathrooms and I am delighted with the results. Note: when you get to where you push the glue into the mounting devices you need to go slow. If you do that -- and then let the glue cure for even more than 24 hours -- the results will be great! I highly recommend this product.

Very good concept, but like some others, followed directions exactly, but one bar came loose after 2 months, the other after 2 years. No response from customer service. Not worth it.

The grab bars look beautiful and are reasonably easy to put up. I installed two grab bars but had one of the adhesive anchors on one bar fail after about a week. I called the company and sent them photos of the situation. After reviewing, they are sending me a new anchor kit for just shipping and handling. Since the other bar is holding on fine after a few weeks, I assume the affected bar will do the same with the new anchors.
