It was ordered through Amazon's web-site and the reason I chose it was because it was the cheapest of all the products in this category, in a brass finish. It arrived within 3 days of the order, and was packaged well. The grab bar's covers over the mount were a bit difficult to remove, and needed a screwdriver to prise off. You've got to do it carefully so as not to mar the finish, but the finish seemed pretty tough anyway.
The mount provides multiple positions to position screws. It recommends that you use three screws each, but its kind of hard to find enough room on a 2" stud to put two screws side-by-side, especially when you have to first accurately locate the stud's position using a sensor. This is probably the hardest part in trying to mount this on the tiled wall adjacent to the shower / tub. Otherwise, everything else went easily - just be careful drilling through tilework so as not to crack it. I used a hammer drill with a 3/8" bit, but first I covered the drill spot with a piece of electrical tape on which I marked the hole positions. Then go slow... After screwing in the bar, it was easy to slip the brass covers over the mounting plates.
I opted to use a Moen Secure Mount Anchor on each end of each bar instead of trying to mount one end of each bar to a stud. I have a stud finder that was fairly well reviewed but I don't trust it enough to work through bathroom tile...a mistake in tile would be harder to fix than in dry wall. The down side of this purchase/installation was that I spent more on a diamond grit hole saw and adapter, and 4 Secure Mounts than I did for two grab bars.
I was a little apprehensive about making a 1 1/4 inch hole, the size required for the Moen Secure Mounts, in tile because of my past experience with short life spans of small diamond tipped drills, but my hole saw lasted through the task. Be patient and keep the cutting end of the hole saw wet at all times. Use a spray bottle or sponge. An if at all possible use a pilot drill and/or some kind of guide. My saw/adapter combination didn't allow for using a pilot drill so the task of making a large hole in a tile was more difficult than it needed to be but I'm patient. Once the holes were made the Secure Mounts installed easily.
If you decide to install your own grab bars, don't just install them because they look good in that spot, or that's where the picture shows them. Give some thought to how you will use them...getting in and out, or getting up and down, or both. If you're using short bars the location will be more "critical". Make sure you don't have to reach, or lean too far, or twist to access them.Read more ›
I don 't think the price difference is a good trade off for the smaller diameter.
And there is a larger gap than usual between the escutcheon ring and the bar.
They are sort of a creamy white which worked for me.
I installed them anyway.

Nice looking bar, but it really stinks that the Securemount brackets aren't included. All the listings for these bars lead you to believe that they are included, given the install... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Old Grouch
