It's important to know exactly what features you will need in a grab bar. Consider the following before making your purchase:
One of the first things you need to determine is where you want to install your grab bar. Some grab bars can be installed on hollow walls, while others need a flat dry surface to adhere. Consider also the length you will need, and what will fit in your bathroom shower or on your walls.
Many of the grab bars in our review will require some tools to install. Make sure you are equipped with the proper equipment and installation understanding before you make your purchase. If you intend to use the maximum weight recommendation many of these bars need to be installed in a wall stud, so keep that in mind as well.
Some grab bars have specific weight bearing loads, while others are meant just to steady someone. Consider the various weight capacity of each grab bar, and how you plan to use it. If you need it to pull yourself up, it may be worth investing in something with a higher weight capacity.
There are a couple things to consider regarding finish. First of course, is how the grab bar will look with your existing bathroom decor. If the grab bar will be hidden behind shower curtains, you may not care. However, if it is to be placed next to the toilet or another open area, consider how important the finish of your grab bar will be.
If you will be using your grab bar in the shower, where it will get wet while you are using it, you may want to consider a textured grip. This will help users grab the bar without slipping in wet conditions.
