This floor to ceiling pole with grab bar is so useful. My wife has MS and I installed this in the bathroom right next to the shower so that the grab bar can be rotated into the shower for support while she is showering or out for when she is getting out of the tub. She is so happy to feel safer so that she can shower and not just have baths. I am about to buy a second one to use in our living room. It is very well made and strong and I have no worries that my wife (who is fairly heavy) will pull it out of place or bend it.
