SNAPTOGGLE® Bath Safety Grab Bar Mounting Kit

Price: $19.99

Enter full name. We'll ask for delivery information at checkout.

 
 

The SNAPTOGGLE® kit consists of 2 heavy-duty hollow wall anchors.

The anchors are pre-assembled and ready for immediate use. The ratcheting strap / locking cap assembly positions the strong one-piece anchoring channel on the rear of the wall, capturing it snugly and securely with the cap. The remaining portion of the straps on the outside of the wall are then easily and quickly snapped off by hand at the required length, flush with the surface of the wall (no extra tools required). Holding is dependent only on the metal bolt to metal channel connection.
 

  • Set of 2: good for one complete grab bar installation
  • Works for the following: Gypsum board, drywall on stud wall, concrete block and tile over drywall
  • Exceeds building code requirements for strength: most codes require 250 lb dead load force, substained and the SNAPTOGGLE® exceeds that, holding 360 lb in 1/2 in. applications
  • Complies with all existing fire codes for critical applications

Bathroom grab bars are essential components for any home, but especially for seniors aging in place and others with balance or dexterity issues. Getting into and out of the shower is not as risky as ingress/egress from a bathtub but still elevates the risk of falls.  Bathroom grab bars or safety assist rails are included within the bathroom safety products recommended the most for preventing falls and accidents within the bathroom.

Grab Bars, or sometimes known as bath safety rails or assist rails should be considered for anyone with any issues regarding, dexterity, mobility or balance.  All will benefit from shower grab bars or bathtub grab bars.

Today's grab bars are found in a variety of finishes and appointments to complement any bathroom style.

Permanent Grab bars offer the greatest strength.  When it comes to installing bathroom grab bars onto the walls of a shower or bathtub, we most often recommend permanent installation.

Clamp-on Bathtub Safety Bars can be found as well- this type of bathroom grab bar is secured onto the side of the bathtub with a dial that clamps down securely onto rubber pads. The grab bar extends up from the clamp (usually in a U-shape) and provides a stable surface to hold onto.

A bath area should provide at a minimum two stable, sturdy surfaces to hold onto when stepping into and out of a bathtub or shower (ie. two grab bars). They should be reachable by the person exiting the tub, able to hold onto both prior to stepping into or outside of the tub.

Bath safety grab bars that have a non-slip surface as part of the grab bar provided added confidence for the user(s). The metal types will have a "knurled" surface, a set of ridges to help with ensuring a firm grip.
