Padded Back Rest Grab Bar

When your balance isn't the best, getting up and down from the toilet can be quite a chore. Provide yourself or your loved one with a safe and stable surface for leaning or resting on in the bathroom while simultaneously providing a stable grab-bar. Designed to be installed above the toilet tank, providing a place for the elderly, disabled or handicapped to lean while seated and helps to prevent broken toilet tanks and tank lids. The bar is constructed of heavy duty steel with a welded flange, and a pad designed for comfort and stability. These white powder coated grab bars are available in two padded back rest colors: Blue and Gray.
Mounting screws and anchors must be provided by the installer since there are too many varieties of mounting surfaces used in modern construction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "I see you're offering a back rest. What's wrong with simply leaning against the tank?"
A. The toilet tank is simply not designed for leaning against. This can cause undue stress on the porcelain, resulting in a broken tank and a great big mess! If you or a loved one wishes to lean, the backrest we offer is designed as a sturdy grab bar with a nice pad. This is far more comfortable and safe than resting against cold porcelain, and makes a good hand hold as well!.

Q. "It says mounting hardware isn't included. What kind of mounting hardware do I need for these products?"
A. The safety bars featured here should only be installed in areas where the mounting surface is structurally sound, and must be secured with fasteners appropriate to the structural material of the wall. Each fastener must have a retention force rating for the maximum weight capacity of the product you've chosen (see product specifications for this information). Inspect, or have inspected (and tighten if neccessary) the screws on a monthly basis. If you are not equipped to undertake the outlined work we recommend that you have your product installed by a qualified contractor.
