Shower Safety Bar Install Help and Recomendations
YouTube lead me to seeing videos of people drilling straight into the tile without doing any stud finding first. Did anyone else do it this way?

What kind of wall anchors did you end up using? Curious to see what happened without any studs.

I don't want to drill through tile/kerdi board so I may need to use these as the stud may be a bit too far off.littledog wrote: ↑ I would recommend a matching grab bar anchor due to the fact that it needs to withstand a large amount of force when it's being used.
I installed a Delta grab bar and the matching anchor.

You can also get one for Moen grab bars

I think you need to buy them separately but I'll have to double check at the store but they look like they are safe enough to use

Definitely included with the set I bought (had shelves to hold toiletries - maybe others don't or not all have them).

I will double check, what store did you purchase from?

Maybe Home Depot and Lowes Moen grab bars don't come with the anchors, all of them seem to say it's optional or extrathriftshopper wrote: ↑ Online Andrew Sheret (Plumbing online or some such).

Easy to say it is a matter of personal choice, however it should depend on who is using it the most. For seniors it is usually best to mount the bar on an approximate 45-60 degree angle. If mounted vertically then their wet hands may slip and slide down the bar, losing their grip. If mounted horizontally they they have to "contort" their wrist to grab and lift. At 45-60 degrees sloping upwards they get the best grip without contorting their wrist.
