Handicap safety grab bars for toilets, showers and bathtubs should be secured directly to the wall system with Secure Mount Hardware by Moen, Solid Mount Hardware, or into wall studs on either side of the toilet and in the shower, toileting or bathing area. Wall reinforcement may be needed to guarantee grab bar stability while users navigate the toilet and bathing areas. Fiberglass showers require a spacer between the shower wall and the stud.

Just the right type of hardware is necessary to adequately and safely secure handicap grab bars to wood studs, wood blocking, shower and bath walls, and drywall. Solid Mount Hardware is a very secure installation hardware specially designed to bridge the gap between a fiberglass shower wall and the wood stud.
The fiberglass shower wall sets off the wood stud or blocking by .5 to 1.5 inches or more. Solid Mount hardware utilizes a long bolt and bracket to extend through the wall space to the stud.
