U-Shaped Safety Assist Bar Great for around your Shower / Tub Handles Installation Manual EASY INSTALLATION To install the U-Shaped Safety Assist Bar you purchased, locate an appropriate position over your bathroom shower / tub faucet, (not included), with sufficient space on wall. Location should allow for securing into at least one wall stud. Ensure the faucet handle can move freely without conflict with the Safety Assist Bar. 1) Use a stud sensor to locate the wall studs. 2) Hold the safety assist bar at the desired location over your bathroom faucet on the wall. Mark the position of each mounting bracket of the safety assist bar on the wall, ensuring stud location to secure mounting. Use heavy duty wall toggles/molly when drilling into substrate with no studs. (see installation recommendations below) 3) Detach the mounting plates inside the brackets by using Hex Key (provided) to unscrew the locking pins at the pin-hole on the side of each bracket. Hold the mounting plate on the marked position of each bracket on the wall, and then mark the screw hole locations on wall through the mounting plates. 4) Take away the mounting plates. Drill holes at the marked screw hole locations. Use a special tipped drill bit if drilling through tile/marble. 5) Install all the mounting plates first to the wall with the stainless steel screws provided. Then mount the safety assist bar to the secured mounting plates on wall by screwing back the locking pins through the pin-hole on the side of each bracket with the Hex Key. Installing into Wall with Wood Studs : Drill 5/32” holes into studs or backing of wall according to the marked screw hole position of each mounting plate. Use stud sensor to locate stud. Install mounting plates with #10 stainless steel screws (provided). Important: Mounting to a secure stud ensures weight limits to be in compliance with ADA and Safety recommendations. * When wood studs are not available at the desired location, a grab bar fastening system is recommended to meet ADA and Safety requirements. (not included, available at most hardware / home centers) Installing into Dry Wall (no studs) : Drill 1/2” holes according to the marked screw hole position of each mounting plate. Then, install mounting plates with 3/16” x 3” toggle bolts (not included) for each mounting plate, or specialty grab bar fastening system. * When wood studs are not available, a grab bar fastening system is recommended to meet ADA and Safety requirements. (not included, available at most hardware / home centers) Installing into Tile Wall : Use a stud sensor to locate the wall studs. On ceramic tiles, try to locate screw hole(s) on grout line on a marked stud. If mounting on tile surface, use masking tape to mark & to prevent sliding during drilling. Drill holes with a 1/4” glass drill bit according to the marked screw hole position of each mounting plate. Install #10 plastic anchors, and mount with #10 stainless steel screws (provided) for each mounting plate. * When wood studs are not available, a grab bar fastening system is recommended to meet ADA and Safety requirements.
