I picked this up for my mother. It is every bit as advertised. It clamped on easily with rubber pads to protect from marring. It is very sturdy and feels reliable. I checked it a week later and found that it did not need any adjustment and was held firmly in place. Of course the price was a very good value as well. As usual, Overstock's fair shipping of 2.95 clinched the deal.
This bath tub bar is great! It's sturdy, it's attractive (blends nicely with the white enamel tub), and it makes getting in and out of the tub so much easier than traditional bars. This model is narrow, so it doesn't raise the clearance over half of the length of the tub like traditionally lower, wider bars. And since it is more than twice as tall as most side-of-the-tub models, it provides a convenient steadying opportunity while standing.
What an excellant product! I bought this for my elderly father & he couldn't be more pleased. He is a tall man around 255 lbs & it attatches tight & sturdy enough to assist himself in & out of the tub. Great product, great bargain. Shipping was fast as usual. Thanks Overstock!!
Thisnis everything I hoped for and more! The sturdiness will surprise you! This is so needed in my bath as we rent and cannot put the handicap bars up and this is just as sturdy anyway!

I purchased this item for my elderly mother who lives alone. She feels more secure with this bathtub aid which allows her to stabilize herself while bathing/showering. Her home health case manager asked her where she purchased the item because she wanted to give her other patients the information to place an order. The case manager said it was one of the best ( most sturdy) bathtub aids she has seen.

I bought this for my 96 year old mother, who was finding it harder to get out of the tub. It's easy to install on the side of the tub, and is small enough so it's not in the way of others using the tub. It now gives her the independence to take her own baths.
I purchased this item for my 80 year old mother-in law. She saw a tub handle "someplace" and asked for one for Christmas. I looked everywhere and couldn't find one that was sturdy, easy to install and not too expensive. This one is great! I gave it to my mother-in-law as soon as it was delivered so she wouldn't have to wait until Christmas and could use it right away. We installed it on to the tub in minutes. I get a "thank-you" every time we talk. She loves it and it was just what she wanted. It's easy to install, she feels comfortable using it and the price is very reasonable. I don't worry about her getting in and out of the tub now.
Ships in one piece, just take it out of the box and put it on the tub. It's very sturdy as well. Once I installed it on my parents' tub i could literally lift myself off the ground on it and it didn't budge. It's got a clean and durable-appearing coating that shouldn't be hard to keep clean.
Several of my daily medications have dizziness as a side-effect so getting in and out of the tub was already a challenge. When arthritis flared up in both my knees, I needed assistance to get in the tub for my shower. With the tub bar (which I installed myself) I have my privacy again without sacrificing safety.
Purchased for spry 80-year-old mother. Tightens on side of tub for assistance getting in and out of tub.. Seems sturdy but she is still not comfortable using it, yet. may take some time. Holds her weight but she is only 115 lbs. Might not work so well for a heavier person.
