    A:  Depends on what is behind the wall. Need sufficient material to anchor it. Why one would do this is another matter entirely

    by|Aug 4, 2022

    A:  With the Proper fasteners, like Tapcons, I don't see why not.

    by|Aug 25, 2020

    A:  I can't think of any reason not to install outside. I just put one in the shower. However, be sure that the wall behind the stucco as well as the stucco itself can support screws/anchors that can be tightened with a lot of force. The bar should be able to securely hold the weight of someone hanging on it to steady themselves in any weather (including icy conditions) without the bar wiggling the slightest. Moen (manufacturer) says that the bar itself will sustain 500 lbs., but that depends on how it is attached.

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Depends on the material being drilled. First, use different screws. Moen supplies stainless steel screws, but the heads strip out unless u r careful. if u r drilling thu tile, select a bit just larger than the treads for the tile hole. Then, if you r hitting a stud, just screw into it. If it is to be attached with an anchor, follow those directions.

                            A:  It is attached with provided screws. You will need to drill holes into stud for secure attachment

                            by|Jul 24, 2019

                              A:  Yes it will, you will have to drill 3 holes on each end to attach it. You might want to be sure that's what you want to do before drilling those holes. If you want remove it in the future you will have to live with those 6 holes in your tub or repair them somehow. It will be very difficult to repair those holes and make it look nice again.

                                A:  no. you have to secure it by screws.

                                A:  No, these are safety bars. I installed two of these (different lengths) in a newly installed fiberglass tub with wall surround. The recommended attachment method is to screw directly into the studs behind the fiberglass wall. My wife is extremely happy with these as they enable her to get in/out of the tub safely.

                                        by|Jun 9, 2019

                                          A:  You could mount these in several ways. It comes with screws & plastic anchors. The strongest method is screwing it direct to the beams. Most house beans are 18 inches of center in mos houses. But you need a stud finder to find the beams. Second method is using plastic anchors if your wall is hollow. Third method is using butterfly anchor bolts, which you have to buy. The first two methods should come with the grab bar.
