TOP 1000 REVIEWERon February 16, 2016
These handrails install easily and have a nice finished look. Cleaning them is a breeze. Their size is just right and it's easy to get a good grip with them. Although I've had a handrail in the shower for years which I recognize as a necessity, I scoffed at the idea of smaller handrails in different locations through the house because, let's face it, no one wants to admit things are getting worse not better. Since my husband installed these, I have been amazed at how much more secure and stable I am. It's obvious he has watched over me carefully as I move about the house and recognized those locations where I need extra stability. It's hard sometimes to recognize your own needs as well as those who love you can. These are a perfect solution for a problem I didn't want to admit I had.

I have installed 7 units from all three labels. Why all the names? Only marketing knows…..Just obtain the lowest price amongst the three as they are identical.
Generally:
Great satin finish that resists finger prints.
Ample mounting holes to grab askew studs.
Yes, you can drive the stainless steel screws at a angle to grab an offset stud and Yes the cover plate still sits correctly atop.
Sturdy construction enough to assist larger persons assuredly.

It looks like it will be a worthy addition to our bathroom whenever I get around to actually installing it. However, I thought about returning it as the stated dimensions are incorrect. The overall length of this grab bar is 15 inches; the bar is 12 inches with another 3 inches added by the mounting flanges. I only have 14 inches, vertically, to install this and it won't fit without putting it in at an angle. So, that's what I'll do. It seems that in the product description where a dimension is listed as "51" it should be "15" instead. Sigh.

I was disappointed to open this, and find that the caps covering the ends were well attached to the bar, and required the used of a blunt instrument to break free. I am a carpenter and resorted to a hammer, fearing that I would only dent these fairly thin rings. Fortunately, they each broke free, using force, but one should know beforehand that such force will be required. Each flange has three "ears" on the outer edge, which apparently hold these covers in place before paint is applied. The paint becomes the real glue that holds them in place, which, to the manufacturer's credit, prevents the covers from sliding around and scratching up the paint on the bar.
I would imagine that some folks simply return these as unusable.

I had a stroke a couple of months ago and I needed something to hold onto in my shower. My friend installed this and it is quite easy for me to hold onto and I don't worry about falling. It's a great device. I recommend it with a thumbs up.

tried to purchase locally, and it was 4 to 5 times more money. Have had these installed in my house for my wife who had a stroke, and she uses them all the time.

I have installed these all over my house for a disabled family member. You can't see it against white walls because of its slim rod and hidden hardware, yet has all the support needed; it is also easier for smaller hands and arthritic hands to grip.

I bought these to hold exercise mats, figuring they were much sturdier than towel bars and at about the same price. Well, they are perfect, hence the five stars. The curved surface makes it easy to take the mats off the bars and doesn't abrade the mat surface. After several months of use, there is no sign of any wobbling where they attach to the wall.

My daughter will have foot surgery in a week and I wanted to prepare for her to go up the two steps in the garage. Put one of these on each side of the door and they work wonderful as a grab bar into the house. (Ok I admit that I use them, too)

Although I have hand rails next to everything, the 3' rails next to my shower were too long. Gripping the upper portion of my old rails even with dry hands they tended to slip, landing me on the floor. The solution was to install the 12" rails just purchased. Now I can securely grab on without sliding down. [Caution, make sure you position the rail at the height that you can comfortably "hang" from.] This product arrived on time and is of quality material. Each package was complete with directions and new hardware. The only problem, and this is very minor, I wish I had selected a slightly larger diameter pipe. My large hands do fit, but would be better even with a 1/2" more pipe. This was my fault and not the supplier / manufacturer.
