Side of Toilet Rails - Hinged Grab Bars

Folding or hinged grab bars attach to the wall at only one end. They connect to a hinge right at the wall. This style of grab bars, rest against the wall when not in use. When you need support, simply pull them out. Many people install these grab bars because they provide support when needed and are easily folded to be out of the way when not required.

Where to Install Grab Bars?

Grab bars should be installed in the bathtub, shower, and around the toilet .  Shower safety grab bars are typically installed on the shower wall as displayed here.

 

Will It Hold You?

A grab bar won't be much use if it doesn't hold you up when you need it most. Don't buy a bar unless it will hold up to 250 pounds, that is obtained by adding your weight AND the force you apply to the bar.

It's essential that you install the bar correctly so it can do its job. You must screw the grab bars into wall studs or into additional blocking. Molly bolts, nails, or screws into sheetrock are not adequate. "Cats" 2-by-4s that you nail in between the studs, or "Plates" plywood or another substantial material that spans the wall studs, are both common practice.

 

Can You Grab It Easily?

Your grab bar should have a diameter that is 1¼ inches to 1½ inches.

Many bathtub and toilet safety bars aren't designed to support a heavy weight and don't meet safety codes for people with disabilities. Consider them products strictly as an assist , do not use them to support your weight.

Be careful as many bathtub safety bars only attach well on smooth, parallel bathtub sides. If you install them on a bathtub with a tapered profile or textured surface, the support brackets won't clamp as securely as they should, and the safety bars may give way when you apply a load.

 

Grab Bar Installation

We recommend that you hire a professional to install your wall mounted grab bar(s).

If you are qualified to install the grab bar(s) yourself, you should carefully follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. This article provides information on the proper installation and positioning of wall mounted grab bars.

Never anchor a grab bar into drywall , it will not hold and you could be seriously injured.

How to properly install a grab bar is to screw it into the wall studs or to blocking in your walls. If your walls don't have blocking, add it by nailing a piece of plywood into the studs. The plywood should be ¾ inches thick and 6 to 12 inches wide.

A grab bar should have 1-½" of clearance from the wall.

Wall mounted grab bars come in several lengths. Deciding which length to install depends on how the grab bar will be used. For example, if you're putting a main grab bar on the side wall of a bathroom tub enclosure a grab bar at least 24 inches long is best. If you're adding a second grab bar for support on the shower head wall, it should be at least 12 inches long.

Horizontal grab bars offer better leverage when you are trying to get out of a bathtub or up and down from a toilet, but a grab bar placed at a 45 degree angle to the toilet or bathtub's rim is better when trying to accommodate people of different heights.

Angling your grab bar has an additional advantage. A 24 inch bar installed at a 45 degree angle will exactly span wall studs spaced 16 inches apart, and you can screw into the studs on each end for maximum support.

Horizontal grab bars should be located 33 to 36 inches above the finished floor around toilets, and 33 to 36 inches above the floor of the bathtub (7 to 11 inches above the rim) and close enough to the shower head wall to support you when adjusting water temperature.

In addition to grab bars many seniors also utilize a walk in bathtub or barrier-free Accessible Shower. For more information see Walk-in-Bathtubs.net and Accessible Showers.
