Let’s face it, a bathroom can be a slippery place and falls can happen to anyone and the resulting injuries can be serious.   Astronaut John Glen received a serious concussion in a bathroom fall that markedly restricted his physical movements.

The point is, grab bars are an important safety feature and are easy to install.  Up until recently, the only secure way to install these devices was to attach them to an interior wall stud.  That’s no longer the case.  This innovative mounting system allows you to mount a grab bar anywhere you want it without regard to wall stud locations.  This video demonstrates how to do it in both wallboard and tile.
