I never write reviews but felt compelled to do so for this product since I did a lot of research before buying and always appreciate others' comments. I got this seat for my 84-year-old dad after his hip replacement. I had first bought the only one I could find locally (at *****) but the opening was so small and would have required constant cleaning (I had to return that one anyway since the handle was bent and couldn't be installed properly). I'm so glad I found this one on online. This Drive model has a much bigger opening and is the same size opening as the toilet itself, so that is a huge advantage since it doesn't require constant cleaning. Another nice thing is that it installs under the toilet seat so you sit on your own toilet seat instead of the riser itself. Installation was easy and the screws are very long. It only has a tiny bit of movement side to side if you try to move it (none that causes any problems). The handles are very sturdy and at a good level. We are extremely pleased with the purchase.
A family member was injured when he fell unconscious during a flu related high fever. He will be on crutches and braces for some time and I ordered this bench along w/ the Overstock raised toilet seat and hand held shower head. They are all wonderful, high quality products and were delivered prompltly and eliminated the need to run all over town looking for the products he needed . I would also suggest purchasing a hand grip for the shower and the life of the injured/elderly will be much easier. This bench is extremely strong (he is 204 lb.) doesn't slip, and is very well made...much better price and quality than others I found in medical supply stores.
