                                  A:  This is designed to be used between two 16" on-center studs. If your studs happen to be closer together than that, you could install at a slant to use up the extra length. It installed vertically, you only need one stud.

                                  A:  On my unit the screw holes are 2 in. ctr to ctr. BUT there are three curved clots between the predrilled holes about 1 in. long to accommodate mounting screws at different locations. You don't have to use the predrilled holes. Simple to install. Good luck.

                                      A:  I wouldn't recommend this size. If you've already bought it, you could install it vertically, on one stud. That's what I did. It doesn't do much to have only one side of the bar securely attached if you try to install it horizontally. You could possibly manage to use only one screw into a stud, on each side, but I don't think that's enough.

But I was replacing the bath tub unit so I had studs exposed and could do that.

                                          A:  No, center to center on the 18" bar is 18" if you put it on an angle you can make the 16" c to c on your studs work.

                                          A:  Yes, under the covers, which snap in place, the flange has holes all the way around so that you can mount it in any orientation. Because the flange is about 3" in diameter, you have plenty of leeway for mounting dimensions.
