Purchaesd this grab bar, the Wingits anchors, and Wingits drill bit, as the packaging for the grab bar indicated that it was Wingits compatible. All items were merchandised together and the use of a specific wall anchor SHOULD indicate that these products have been tested to determine that they are, in fact, compatible. This is not the case. Shame on Home Depot for such misleading packaging and display! To make the system work, I had to break apart the anchor system and use indelendently - but the end result still shows the location of 3 of the 4 anchors. Only able to include one photo with this review
As a senior i have needed a grab bar for a while To keep my balance. I was actually using the shower curtain. This Glaclier Bay grab bar took some planning to get both ends into studs but installed perfectly by following directions. I even installed the towel hook to avoid reaching over to the vanity for towel. Handy man wanted $300.00, i did it for price of bar and hook. Less then $50.00. Bar is stainless with stainless screws and solid as a rock. Never felt more safe!!!

This bar was rather easy to install, but takes a couple of hours. (Finding the studs took the most time.) It's very strong and secure. We bought two of them; one for a bathroom shower and one for the garage stairs.
So easy to install, be sure to use a large enough drill when setting into wooden wall studs. I have installed 2 of these, both were very easy, be sure to find wall studs before starting. There are plenty of holes to mount screws. A very solid grab bar.
...at least out if the box. The holes on the template dont line up with the flanges. Dont drill the holes before checking!!!

18 in. x 1-1/4 in. Concealed Screw ADA Compliant Grab Bar in Brushed Stainless Steel
These grab bars are attractive and functional. They blend in nicely with our other towel bars etc. We installed two, one horizontal in the tub area back wall to assist with getting up in the tub and the other vertically to assist with getting out of the tub safely. They have a simple and secure concealed screw mounting system, with snap on covers - mounting hardware is included. Nice brushed stainless steel finish. ADA Compliant, Exceeding ADA standards, instructions also say it will supports up to 500 lbs. We have had these installed for approx 2 weeks and would highly recommend them.
Works fine. I had to install it in one of those plastic tub surrounds so there screws we're not long enough. I attached it to a two by four way inside the wall with a 3 and 1/2 inch screw. Seems to be holding on really well.
