    Answer This Question

    A:  I bought for installation in my Mother's house,and don't remember exactly, but I think 36 inches is correct.

    by|Apr 8, 2019

      A:  The end to end length is 36". This is so you can make sure that the ends are mounted into studs for maximum strength. This is a great product. We install them frequently for our clients.

      by|Apr 8, 2019

        A:  Hello, you have to add 3 inch for the end caps. So from end cap to end cap is exactly 39 inches overall. The 36 is measured for just the end of the curve on the grab bar.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  It depends on if you have backing in the wall or not. If you have backing, then drill a hole just big enough for your screw to go through. If you do not have backing you will need to use anchors and the hole size will be determined by the anchor sizebi

                                      A:  Hello Fan and thank you for your interest in Moen products.

                                        A:  NO! This safety bar should only be mounted to studs or framed as such H If between studs.

                                          A:  This grab bar is very sturdy. However, it's only as good as the wall it's attached to. I would not attach it to a hollow wall. If someone grabs it, feeling as if they are falling, they will probably grab with most of their weight, assuming it will prevent their falling. They won't remember that someone once said not to grab it too hard. They'll go down with the grab bar and the broken out section of wall.

                                          A:  Model I got was 19 in OD where handle goes through mounting bracket, so mounting screws where beyond 19in. With 2x4 studs exposed, I attached a six in. lg. piece of 2x4 on outside of the two studs I wanted to mount handle to (directly across from each other). If you angle the handle location then of course you will have to determine where to locate the blocks. And you may have to add more than 1 or more blocks to each side depending on distance between your studs. I attached spacer blocks with two course 3 1/4 in. long screws, placed somewhat in middle of each block so not to block mounting screws. Just measured & pencil marked center and used mounting plate cover to draw circle of exact location on shower wall, installed shower unit, pre drilled mounting holes in wall and attached handle and cover plate. Plenty strong. Simple. Took minutes to install. Good luck

                                            A:  You can but I wouldn't. I wouldn't be sure it was safe to hold anyone up.

                                              A:  You could use mollies or other hollow wall fasteners. I think Delta makes a special fastener for hollow walls as well.

                                                A:  Yes,the main thing you have to watch on installing any grab bar is that the screws go into the wall studs.Often times the screws that come with the bar are junk, so you buy some rust resistant sheet rock screws and use those. Before you buy the bar, check with a stud finder where the studs are then measure so you know which size bar you will need. Pre-drill the holes for the install of the screws (putting a little candle wax on the threads will help driving them into the stud). Get as many of the screws into the stud as possible, you may have to use the toe nail method to get all of them in, this will make for the most secure install. Hope this helps.

                                                        A:  Possibly, as long as the appropriate blocking is in place behind and is where it is required to be to mount the grab bar so that the load is transferred to the blocking . There are a number of considerations to be taken into account- Is correct Blocking in locations needed that you want to mount this flat or curved? Is there adequate room to allow for the installation? Will you void the warranty of the bath fitter by installing the grab bar? Can you access the back side of the tub to allow for installation of blocking? Can the grab bar be installed to ADA specifications- IE to support 250 pounds? There are a lot of variables involved.

                                                          A:  It sure can as long as the liner is flat up against the sheetrock wall. Can't have any space between the liner and the sheetrock because there would not be any solid support.

                                                            A:  Yes. Just as long as there is adequate reinforcement backing for the mounting flanges to attach to. I have no idea how substantial the fiberglass is in this combo. Mounting hardware was intended to be screwed into wooden studs not fiberglass. I would suggest a wood backer for a solid mounting surface. The included hardware are 2" long wood screws (6). 3 for each mounting flange. Read your instructions and mount appropriately. A strong mount is the key for support.

It is great as I am handicapped on the stairs. with the 3 inch screws it holds tight. If you want you could car wax it before the winter to help keep the elements from affecting slightly slippery and smooth but stays whiteer longer. Good product strong I am a 300pounder and it holds my weight.

It is presumably intended for wet / bathroom use so it should not rust. Personally I was not overly impressed with it, and personally having had one, I would be looking for something better.

                                                                                    by|Dec 18, 2018

I mounted grab bars in two different locations and I managed to place them so the ends or at a stud, by angling or mounting them vertical to the walls.

This setup feels very solid as long as you have strong material -- in our case wood -- to screw in to.
