easy to install. make sure the suction is placed on level wall without bevel. they have been a great safety product for my elderly mother in the shower. always check and recheck to make sure they are secured in place. We purchased 2 more for the basement shower. Good product without having to drill holes in the wall.
This product is surprisingly strong for a product that does not need to be bolted to the wall. I liked it so much I bought 2 as gifts for friends for Christmas. After attaching it to the shower wall it provides a security in case of a slip in the tub. It is very helpful when exiting the tub or shower providing extra stability. For this reason I saw it an unusual but helpful gift for friends.
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.
I wasn't sure if this grab bar was the correct size for me, but once I received it and placed it in the bathtub on the wall, I realized that it was the perfect size and was very easy to install. Exactly what I was looking for at a great price. You will not be disappointed.
