We purchased this product for use in a nursing home. One gentleman with left side paralysis was falling often in the bathroom. We positioned this device in his bathroom and he loves it. It gives him something to hold on to when transferring from wheelchair to toilet and back. The grab bar portion can be repositioned to help him stand up and the pole gives him something to lean against while he gets his pants up and down.
I love that it is adjustable for varying ceiling heights. The only thing I don?t like is the plastic sleeve that goes over the tension nut. It is too loose and can be lifted up and turned. It would not be a safe part to grab for stability as it would rotate around the pole. If there were some way to secure this sleeve to the pole that would be ideal. Because it is up high, it has not been and issue, but it could be.
Over all this has been a very good product and we will buy this again if someone else in our nursing home needs one.
Bought this pole out of desperation - end of my rope really. My husband has bone cancer and I had to help him on and off the commode and in and out of the tub. No more! This pole has become a lifesaver. It assists him in all bathroom needs without calling me all the time.. He holds on to get dressed also. Great invention and we love it - wouldn't be without it and may purchase another to put beside his chair. Easy to assemble and install, sturdy. Great buy!

This worked perfectly. Our elder person had to temporarily be relocated to another family members home. To avoid having to permanently
install grab bars, I purchased this product, Has been in use for several weeks now, no complaints. Love that it is portable, will "break down" fairly easy. If someone takes our elder person to their home for a week or so, it can be taken with them. Great safety item, Highly recommend. It is not bulky looking when in place and does not scream " a handicapped person lives here". Love it.

We purchased this pole to use for the holidays with my parents staying with us. They have not arrived to use it yet, but it seems very sturdy and we were glad it could be installed without drilling the ceiling or floor.

This product was a lifesaver after back surgery. I am purchasing another one for my elderly mother to successfully get in and out of her bathtub. This is the perfect solution for areas that a grab bar attached to a wall will not address.

This works great. I bought it for my 87 yr old dad so he could get in and out of bed easier. Mom and I put it together...we're no spring chickens, I'm disabled with balance problems and she's 83...but directions were simple, everything was marked...a little heavy for girls but we did it. If we can do it, its going to be easy for anyone else. Dad thinks its great and very helpful for him; he uses it "both coming and going". Mom likes is because it doesn't take up much room. I put it right (almost touching) up to the bedframe. Sturdy. Price is great about half of what the medical supple store was charging.
I found grab bars that were far below the "going" rate in other stores. I purchased it and had it mailed to another location. It arrived exactly as promised, on the date promised. When we needed to return the item, UPS picked it up on time, and issued a full refund immediately. I could not be happier. No muss, no fuss! Super customer service.
This worked well for my Elderly Mom. She didn't want Grab bars drilled into the wall. So this was a great solution. This could be used in an room near a bed or chair. Near a tub or toilet. Every nurse who came to tend to my Mom asked were it came from.
So I showed them O.co . This could be a great temporary item for surgery patients also. I did think the handles were adjustable in height., not the case, but they do move to the left or right around the pole.
Good item Helping Mom :)

Do you have a similar product that support 10' distance from the floor to the ceiling?cygg on Jun 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, I do. One with curved grab bar and one without.vickiedesomer on Jul 8, 2014
The distance from the floor to the ceiling is 103". Will that distance work with this tension pole?nannettek on Sep 13, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The distance this security pole will go is 7 to 9 feet. If we look at that in inches it is 84 to 108 inches. It will make the 103 inch mark you are looking for. Thank you for shopping Overstock.com.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 19, 2013
You've said that the curve grab bar begins about 33 inches from the floor and ends at about 52 inches from the floor.
Could you tell me about how long is the curve grab bar ? (the "horizontal" part)
Thank youbansi2 on Jul 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The span is about 19 inches from the bottom handle to the top handle, and the handles are about 9 inches wide.

Measuring from the floor upward, at what height does the curve begin and end?
Does the curved area remain fixd after installation, or does it allow adjustment by rotating?spanishorse on Jan 18, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I’d be happy to answer your question. The curve grab bar begins about 33 inches from the floor and ends at about 52 inches from the floor. The curve grab bar rotates around 180 degrees and locks in place every 45 degrees, but it can’t be moved up or down. Please let me know if you have any further question.
