Installation Guides

No matter how strong a grab bar is made, it is only as secure as its mounting. Smartbar™ with the patented Easymount™ technology needs only one fastener in each mount. No other grab bar installs this easily. Fastener kits have been developed and are available on this website for nearly all mounting conditions. Because each Smartbar™ mount may need to be fastened to a different substrate, you can choose a different fastener kit for each mount. If you don’t see a fastener kit that suits your needs or you have questions, contact us at 330-545-GRAB (4722).
