We bought this to use when older relatives visited. We wanted to give them the security of a handrail while using the shower, but didn't want to change our custom tile in the bathroom. This is a very sturdy, well made product. It is easy to set up and to remove. Provides our visitors that extra feeling of safety. In fact, we will take it with us on car trips with older relatives to use in hotel rooms. Highly recommend this product for anyone who might have visitors needing extra shower support. ...more info
- Did not fit on my tub
The previous reviews are correct. This does not fit on a 7 inch tub. The insert with the bar says 6 inches.
It does appear to be a good product- very sturdy.
It is heavy and I am not looking forward to how much it is going to cost to return it....more info
- Is exactly as promised
Easy to install (I have arthritis) and does what it says it does. I bought it for my elderly relatives as a grab bar when they come to visit and need to use the bathroom. An excellent product....more info
- didn't fit
I agree with other reviewers. Despite description, did not fit our tub. We had to return it....more info
- Easy and Rock Solid
This is an easy solution when getting out of the tub is difficult. There is no assembly involved; the bar comes out of the box ready to go on the side of the tub and a few turns of the handle have it ready to use. We got this for use when my mother-in-law came to visit, and it has the added advantage of being removable when not needed. I was impressed with how securely it held on to the side of the tub..not a wobble. Do, however, measure your tub before ordering to make sure it will fit. I am very satisfied, a simple and easy solution to our problem....more info
- Great Product!
Great product! Fast delivery, just take it out of the box, clamp it on the tub and you're good to go. Very stable and you can put it in the best place along the tub to accommodate your patient's mobility limitations. I'm a rehab therapist who bought this to help with showering safety after my hip replacement and liked it so much that I bought one for my parents' tub, and will recommend this product to my patients in the future....more info
- Solid Construction
Installed for an elderly person. The construction of this product is top notch. Quality materials throughtout. It does take some adjustment, but it is easily installed and is rock solid on the tub....more info
- Very happy with purchase
I bought this item for my mother, who has a hard time walking, let alone getting into a bathtub. It was a snap to install, and is rock-solid, I mean it actually feels like part of the tub. It's heavy metal piping also, so I don't have to worry about her breaking any plastic pieces. Great value for the price, especially when peace-of-mind is thrown into the deal....more info
- Exactly what we needed for my visiting dad.
My father came to visit and I was looking for a few products that would make his time here a little more comfortable. My father only recently became incapacitated, so I'm new to what products are available. This was one the the items I selected. And it was a great decision. It installed in less than a minute. No great strength or tools are necessary for the installation. And it's easily moveable if it's in the way of anybody. If you feel you need two handrails to hold onto, then you can easily install two. Much cheaper than a professional alternative. And because of it's size and durability, it can safely travel with you. I gave it to my dad for when he travels anywhere. This is a great idea, and it's super sturdy....more info
- Just what we were looking for.
We needed something to assist my elderly mother who is living with us. My children use the same bathroom, so I needed something strong but relatively unobtrusive. This bar is very sturdy and very well made, as other reviews have mentioned. However, it only fit on the narrowest part of the side of our bathtub (the middle). Measure your bathtub before you order--it will only fit 6" wide, not the 7" in the description. If it will fit your tub, it is a perfect product: It is easy to install and remove and will not mar your tub. It does not interfere with our shower curtain configuration--liner on the inside of the tub, curtain on the outside. I did a lot of research before I purchased, and I am very pleased with this product....more info
- Fabulous device for visiting senior.
Bought this item for my elderly mother. I was concerned with her ability to safely get into and out of the tub. The item was a very quick and easy install. No special tools or ability required. Instructions were straight forward and very simple.
She was easily able to maneuver in and out of the tub without assistance thus maintaining her modesty and dignity. An important part of having aging people around.
Super product for such a reasonable cost....more info
- Bath Tub Grab Bar
This product works great. I was trying to find one locally and was not having much luck either finding one or finding one that was reasonably priced so I ordered this one. Then a few days later I saw the same item at Fleet Farm for a lower price. Who would have thought to check at a store like Fleet Farm??...more info
- Medline Bathtub Bar
I purchased this for my mother and had it shipped to her. It arrived quickly and installed easily. She feels much safer using the bathtub now and I have peace of mind. Excellent product....more info
- Works very well
Very easy to set up (took less than 2 minutes) and it works great - my bathtub is much safer now and I have no fear of falling. I definitely recommend this item....more info
- Medline Bathtub Bar
The safety bar opened enought to grip a 7-1/4" thick contoured garden tub. The grip has stayed secure, and on the one occassion when I slipped and put my entire 240 pound weight on it, the device stayed in place and allowed me to safely catch myself with the top hand grip. Bottom line is that it worked perfectly....more info
- Mostly metal, with rubberized pieces that really grip the walls of the tub. But slippery metal top.
You can read the other reviews telling you about whether or not this bathtub bar will fit your tub and, if it will, how sturdy it is.
I just thought I would mention that after buying the product, I decided that it was just too likely that, with wet/soapy hands, I might lose my grip on the device when getting out of the tub. So I purchase some bicycle handlebar tape and wrapped it around the entire metal handle. The particular handlebar tape that I used was this:
Stella Azzurra Eleganza Tape
You could use other less expensive handlebar tape for the same purpose.
By the way, I placed the bathtub bar (on the outside tub wall, of course) midway between the head and foot of the tub. I put it there so the device could be easily reached irrespective of whether I am getting up from a bath or stepping out after a shower....more info
- Works Great!
My bathtub is custom made; the sides are wider than most. This fits wonderfully, as it is adjustable. I weigh about 245; it supports my weight with no trouble....more info

Very sturdy,well made and very easy no tools installation.We`re very pleased with this product....more info
- great product for the price
you can't tell from the picture, but this bar is made of mostly metal. the only plastic part is the knob, and although it feels like it will snap off (instructions emphasize NOT to overtighten), it didn't. the bar attaches very easily to the side of the tub, and feels very sturdy. it supports up to 250lbs, but is not meant to be used for leverage (pulled sideways).
the side of my tub is thinner (in width) in the middle than on the ends, so when i fixed the bar onto it, the inside jaw was slightly skewed to compensate for the sloping. it still holds very well, no wiggling.
the grip on the bathtub bar can be very slippery, especially with soapy hands. i am thinking about getting a grippy sticker or something to put along the handle. this might make it a little safer for me.
overall, this is a great product for the price!...more info
- Amazon got the description wrong.
The description says 7 inch tub. The instructions accurately say 6 1/2 inch, and that made all the difference in fitting my tub (which is just a small fraction above 6 1/2 inches).
The product looks well made and solid.
I'll delete this review once Amazon updates the specs to show the proper size. ...more info
- Great product
I am gearing up for knee surgery and bought this item to help me in the shower. It clamps easily to the tub and is very sturdy. I like the fact that I do not have to install a permanent rail in my limited tub/shower space. An added advantage that I did not expect is that I can adjust the position of the bathtub bar in such a way that it will also help me to get up from the toilet, eliminating the need to buy toilet safety rails. I am very pleased with this product. And service was amazing--it arrived in four days with super-saver shipping....more info
- Excellent Product
The Medline Bathtub Bar is easy to install, and it is sturdily constructed. It is a wonderful solution to the needs of a Senior Citizen who is a little unsteady when getting in and out of the tub. ...more info
