For those who have problems getting out of the tub, this can be adjusted to the best height for you Some may also find it helpful getting in as well. The price was a little more than the others I looked at, but I am glad I chose this one . The others may be as good, but I liked this one.
Many contemporary bathtubs have curved sides. This bar is still very secure even though the rubber pads are flat. When you're tightening it down, only turn the thumbscrews enough to get the side pads tight against the sides of the tub. If you have a curved tub and keep turning, the entire bar assembly will rise up and become less secure. In its optimum position, it will tilt slightly from side to side but you won't be able to pull it out of position or off the tub with your hand. Also, check the tightening every day or so to make sure it hasn't become less safe through use or some well-meaning person messing with it. I like the fact that if you have a fancy two-part shower curtain, it will easily part over the bar and look pretty as it's supposed to. Obviously, pull the curtain out of the way before using the bar to get in or out of the tub. Both the installation and the height adjustment are super-easy.
