    Default Tub safety bar

    Yet another assistive gadget in my life. This tub safety bar looks as if it will be very helpful. I've used it once already. It's very easy to install and seems secure enough to hold. That isn't a photo of me but the safety bar is exactly like the one I have.

    My mom has one that is like that but wider. It attached the same way and works well for her.

    Good new addition. I Have grab bars in the shower and on the wall beside the toilet.
    I created a huge shower that has no lip. I could wheel directly into it and I put in a handheld shower head so I can switch back and forth between the normal one and the handheld one.

    Grab bars make life better y far...

    I only take showers and my tub is just sitting there. It is a large garden tub and I can no longer get up on my feet to get out. Would this help me to pull up?

    Agate, would you have a price on a bar like that? I could use one, getting out of the tub scares me.

    Virginia, I'm not sure what a garden tub is--Google is showing me lots of different shapes when I asked it about garden tubs. It does have a caution about not overtightening it on fiberglass or thin steel tubs because the clamp might crack the tub.

    It can't be installed if a shower door track is in the way. And it's supposed to fit tub edges between 2.75" and 6.25" thick.

    Howie, this one is available on Amazon.com for $28.94.

    There are other types of bathtub safety rails available too. (No, this isn't a plug for Amazon but it does look that way.)

    Thank you Agate. I like Amazon. I have several things in the house I got from them. I'll see the choices of the bars like that.

    I just went, and this is the problem with Amazon, they have too many choices. But it's a good problem if there is such a thing. What do I get? It's hard to narrow it down. I'll look again tomorrow when I'm rested.

    I HAVE THE EXACT SAME SAFETY BAR AS IN THE PIC! I LOVE this thing! I got mine as a gift from someone who bought it off home shopping i.e either QVC or HSN. I forget which. I can put my entire weight on the bar and have no problem.
