I found the instructions are easy to follow, the only problem that I encountered was that you have to have it mounted exactly perfect on the plastic rings. Other wise you will have problems getting the caps on. I noticed that other people here have mentioned the same problem. I had to shave the plastic off a little to get the caps on. Other then that it seems to be firmly mounted. I would recommended it for people that need a mounting for a hollow wall.
As sturdy as claimed, but watch the installation video
This product solves the problem fiberglass shower or tub surround owners have installing gab bars. As the product listing shows, the walls of the shower are not in contact with the studs in the wall, to which you MUST attach the grab bars. Behind mine there were 7/8” to 1-1/8 inch air gaps which wouldn’t have allowed a secure mounting without this kit. Just swallow your surprise at the cost for what you get and order it. You’ll thank yourself the first time someone needs the grab bar. Some tips: 1) wear a mask when using a hole saw on fiberglass, which wasn’t mentioned in the install video. Your lungs don’t like fiberglass dust; 2) the positioning of the second mount is critical down to the millimeter or less, so measure a lot more than you cut. I suggest trimming both of the flat plates down about a millimeter all around so that if your placement of the mount is off by much more than a hair you can still get the cover plates to snap on at the end of the installation.
Worked perfect to mount 24” grab bar in our fiberglass shower. Measure twice drill once and you will have good results. Very sturdy as well.
Wonderfully designed product!
Used this product to add safety grab bars for my Mom's shower. They are extremely well built and very sturdy when installed. I have no fear that they would get pulled out. Thanks for a great American made product.
these made installing hand bar a breeze. the shower surround is curved and we weren't sure how we were going to even get the bar in without completely redoing the shower. we found these and now my 92 year old father feels more secure while showering, the bar looks great and is very very secure, great product!!
Measure twice. Cut once.
Fantastic kit! Was easy to install and is very sturdy.
This is a fantastic and well-thought-out system for mounting handrails. At first, I was a bit apprehensive as this kit requires cutting 2" holes through your fiberglass tub surround. You'll want to make sure you've got all of the recommended tools and some silicone before starting. A good stud finder and a laser level are also very helpful. I wouldn't call this a beginner DIY installation, but if you can read and follow detailed instructions and you're familiar with 2x4 framing, measuring, and can handle a drill with a 2" hole saw it's not that tough of an installation.
Very solid product
This worked great for what i needed it for. Very solid and well built. Make sure to measure twice and cut once and double check your stud location. Overall this is a five star product, and i would recommend it to anyone looking to install a grab bar on a previously installed fiberglass surround.
Kind of expensive
It does what it claims. Could do it for a lot less next time with my own materials. Product did work on safety rails in fiberglass shower as advertised t.hough
