I’m a home health Occupational Therapist, so I’ve helped many patients order tub transfer benches from Amazon. This was the worst. It came in so many parts that it took ages to put it together. We ended up using a power drill, and the screws were so tight the drill started to strip the heads of the screws. Then we ended up with sharp edges on the screws that could have caused skin tears on the patient. We had to file all of the many, many screw heads so that they were not sharp. I’m not very mechanical, as you can tell by my terminology, but I have put at least 50, if not 100 of these together in my career, and this was by far the hardest. I’m going to guess it took well over an hour to put it together, and takes less than 5 minutes to put one together that does not need tools, and around 15 minutes for a normal one that does need tools. After it was all put together, and sharp edges filed off, it worked fine as a tub transfer bench. But the ones that are easy to put together work fine too.

Chair broke after six weeks of use. I am physically disabled and when I was getting out of the tub, the chair broke. I was very lucky that I wasn't injured. Don't buy this chair.

This chair was great and did what it needed to do , but after 7 months one of the main bars snapped risking my wife's life in the shower. The only I purchased item again it is the only one I can afford. If I knew I would end buy two of these less than a year a part I would have just bought a more expensive one. I also found this chair very difficult to clean. If you buy this be sure to buy a sturdy brush to scrub it clean. I've had to clean it once a week both on the and bottom. I skipped one day and bottom already started to grow some weird stuff and become discolored. I had to start cleaning it with comet so that chair would not turn to a gross color. If this all you can afford buy it, save up and get a better one down the road. If you are just a cheapskate and don't want to spend any more money on a bath chair then you are putting whoever is using in danger. Like I mentioned earlier my wife almost fell in the shower using this product and she is an amputee, she almost trying to to get of the chair. The thing she is supposed to be able to with this transfer chair.

DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!!! The bolts that are used to secure two of the seat panels to the frame (use the long bolts per the instructions) are too long. The bolts will puncture through to the top of the seat panels & project up where you sit. There is no other bolts included that can be used to secure the seat panels without damaging the tops of the seat panels. The number included in the instructions sheet is useless. When you call the number it states "there is no one available to take your call at this number". Thank goodness for Amazon's wonderful customer service. This item is non-refundable, but Amazon gave me a full refund as the item was defective. I put this bath bench in the garbage where it belongs!

I never thought I'd be ordering s shower chair but a severe ankle injury forced me to buy one with a transition bench. When this arrived, it took about 30 minutes to put together (someone not loopy from pain meds and in an air cast could probably do it faster).

I was happy to see that you could reverse the side you put the chair back on depending on which way your shower head faces.

It's very sturdy. I'm 5'5" and am a size 18/20. Having this here has given me some independence. Glad I chose this one.

Easy to assemble. Lightweight. I had to change the back rest to the other side due to my shower head. Wasn't hard to adjust the back rest. Took less than 30 minutes to put everything together. It was a little wobbly due to the uneven bathtub surface and bathroom tile floor. Good thing all legs are adjustable to fix that issue. Now my husband who have brain injury, can easily access the shower safely. He was happy to take a shower. Satisfied with the purchase. Thanks!

Shower chair works great, but in my tub it dose sit a little slanted. I'll have to work on getting it placed in there so it doesn't slant forward. Not sure if anyone else had that problem with this one. It is more difficult to put together than I thought it would be. I couldn't do it myself. I got very frustrated with the screw, nuts, and bolts. I had to have my husband put it together for me and he had to use a wrench or something to really tighten them in. Also one screw did not fit into the plastic part of the chair, so he had to use his drill to make the whole big enough. However, after we got it together it worked out great. So beside that, I would recommend it. My grandmother is blind from diabetes, broke her arm recently, and was also recently diagnosed with CHF. With all of these health issues, she has become more weak, making it more difficult for her to get in and out of the shower easily. This chair has really helped her. I got tired of waiting on insurance approval, so just bought one myself. This is one of the less expensive ones out there, so I am very happy that it worked out so well.

I almost never write reviews but this situation is different. I ordered this product for a client. It came on time but when I opened the box it appeared as if someone had just taken a handful of screws, washers, and other hardware and just threw them into the box as an afterthought!. Of course the quantities were way off. Meanwhile there was someone depending on me to furnish this item today. I had to buy another and wait for it. Definitely not this brand! I will never buy this brand again!

Great item. My husband had a hip replacement. I ordered this and assembled it myself while he was still in rehab. It was a wonderful item to have at the house when he came home. I don't know how we would have managed without it. After a few months, he no longer needed it, so I bleached it and stored it. It's ready in case we need it again.

These holes do not line up no matter how you position it. Frame is bent, wobbles from the get go. This was clearly a waste of money and I don't think it is refundable. Do yourself a favor and buy one that is already assembled some place.
