I've put in quite a few grab bars for family & friends over the years and I really like this one the best. The mounting slots on the bar they provide make it SO much easier to get 3 screws into a 2x4 stud. They also have a neat marking pad that comes pre-attached to the bar to "stamp" the hole pattern on the wall, so you can't miss while drilling. Just make sure you read the instructions first as I didn't know about the pad and opened up the clear plastic wrapping around the mounts only to have the "stamp pad" fall off and when I went to pick it up got black all over my fingers. It wiped off, but at first I thought it was permanent marker, but it's not, it just wipes right off. I also like the style of these grab bars, they look stylish and don't look institutional or industrial as many others do. The bars also have a nice flattened rubber grab area on the back, so they are not as slippery as a plain round bar and give a lot of confidence while grabbing onto it. (see Pic) It also makes it easier to grab for folks with smaller hands than the usual full round bars. The kit comes with mounting screws, washers, 2 extra set screws & an Allen wrench. You may need other hardware if you can't find the studs where you want to mount the bar (see instructions). A stud finder is very helpful if you have access to one. If you are planning a bathroom, have the builder put in 2x8 or 2x10 blocking around the tub or shower ahead of time which will make mounting the bars so much easier. The instructions are in English, French & Spanish with drawings for clarity.
