shower grab bar vegas/axis 24.1

Has anyone installed a grab bar in the shower? I think we'll be needing one. I'd like to know if there's somewhere to screw it on the wall.

Had one added to our shower, its on the outside wall, there are small studs in the wall, so angle it so you can get both ends attached to one.

My wife found a pretty nice suction cup set. Perfect for balancing.

Ditto. The framing is very thin, 3/4". You want to pilot hole for your screws. If you need more weight bearing, attach the grab rail first to a 1x4 and screw it to the "stud" but with panel adhesive to grip to the wall.

I used this one: https://www.amazon.com/RV-Designer-W.../dp/B002UC15TG

Yes. On our 25.4 it doubles for an assist for the toilet which is elevated on a step.
