This product works great, and is very sturdy. As long as you position the suction cups on a smooth part of the surface (not on cracks or seams in the tile) and push down the attachment levers, there is no removing these handles (unless you choose to). Getting two of the handles was perfect because one can be positioned as a handle to use when stepping into the shower, and the other can be placed for use to steady yourself when tilting your head back to rinse your hair or bend forward to reach toward your feet, ect. I had seen other reviews saying that these handles do not hold attach well, and that is just not the case, I'm glad I took a chance and ordered them. Also these are a great value, I have seen the exact same product (same manufacturer, ect.) in other catalogs costing more along with higher shipping and handling charges of course than Overstock. You will not be disappointed with this product.
My shower / tub has 4" tiles all around, nearly 5 feet up, and these handles don't work well on them. I bought two of these handles to help me keep my balance while in the shower. The span of these handles don't fit over the tiles correctly. At least one of the suction sections must be placed over the grout around the tiles, which means that it can't be airtight. Both of these handles have fallen off the wall several times. They work best if they are placed in an area that doesn't get very wet. Which is not where they are needed most, of course. I would not recommend them if you have 4 inch tiles. Otherwise, I thinnk they would work quite well.
This worked great, initially. I have had it in my shower for several weeks. I even bought one for a relative. But - yesterday it came off in my hand as I grabbed it. Dangerous as you count on it for safety.Overall I thought it was a good product but need to find out its limitations.
My husband has recently become less and less stable. We needed grab bars to put in the shower for his safety. Our shower is a Roman tub (with steps) made entirely of glass blocks. It is not possible to install metal grab bars on to glass. I ordered these Safe-er-Grip 11.5-inch Bathtub/ Shower Assist Bar (Pack of 2) and they are perfect. We were able to install them where needed and they are secure enough to provide the stability that he needs.

Because of the size of this product, there was no way I could position it on my bathroom wall near the tub where one of the suction cups did not overlap a grout line of my tile, which broke the suction and made the handles nonfunctional for me. The price was very good and the product seemed fine,, so rather than bother with returning them, I gave the bars away, in the hopes that they would work better for someone else.
