    • A breakthrough combination of a wall mounted grab bar, and the proven benefits of a pivoting and locking dual rail. Designed for bathing, toileting and other environments where grab bars are found.
    • 5 locking positions - lift to unlock dual rail, keep rail up to move freely, let rail down to securely lock in place. Stand to shower, lean over to adjust shower controls or use when lowering into the tub. Easy to use ladder-like support for getting on and off the toilet.
    • Safe bathtub entry - dual rail extends 20"/51cm from wall to provide a weight bearing surface for safe entry and exit from the bathtub.
    • Installs like a grab bar - mounts securely to structural studs with 3 contact points for added strength. Bottom grab bar is reversible for a left or right side installation.
    • Stainless steel construction. Unlike zinc or chrome plated grab bars that can chip and rust, the Dependa-Bar will never rust.
    Note: The Dependa-Bar should only be installed in areas where the mounting surface is structurally sound. If you are not equipped to undertake the outlined work we recommend that you have your Dependa-Bar installed by a qualified contractor. The Dependa-Bar must be secured to wall with fasteners appropriate to the structural material. Fasteners must be rated for certain retention force each for maximum weight capacity (see within for recommendations). Mounting fasteners should be inspected monthly and tightened if necessary. Rail is capable of supporting a maximum suggested user weight of 325lbs/147kg.
    Due to variances in needs, materials and local construction methods, the information contained within concerning mounting location, fasteners and wall fabrication is provided as suggestion only. Consult the appropriate local professionals for best advice.
