A wet vertical bar might not be the best support for a falling senior or anyone else. What do you mean if they make them that way? You haven't seen horizontal bars?
Why you coming off so crass? This is not a grab bar ...I've already made the recommendation for those and got the go ahead.

I would hope you're aware of shower valves and their typical routes of installation, I simply pointed out the specifics....and no, I've never installed a horizontal slider and quite frankly never seen one.

Maybe you have a picture in your vast catalog of work that you could enlighten this simplistic apprentice.

Slider? Defeats the purpose of a bar doesn't it? I said what I would do, not what you should do and you told me it makes no sense. The rest of your garbage is too juvenile to respond to.

No, it doesn't defeat the purpose...why would it?

This bath/shower is still being utilized by an adult who doesn't require the head to be lower, therefore, installed horizontally would make no sense...that's all I'm trying to say.

Good job!..you go from crass, to simply an azz...you still haven't showed me a picture of what YOU would do.

I really need to start throwing chit out I would agree.

Funny footnote, I grabbed the Phillips head driver and for the life of me, couldn't get it seated...as soon I put on my readers, I realized it was slotted If you look close, one is actually a Phillips

Getting old sucks

Nah, remember we're a melting pot and quite diverse, and import crap from all over the word (some of which we threw or gave away and it was repackaged and sold back to us), so we've got all kinds and cover a lot of bases...

Take your pick... https://www.grainger.com/category/ma...3FperPage%3D32

Re: Pro Bono Work


Just to explain what a slider is, the shower head gets positioned higher or lower by sliding it up or down the slider bar. This is usual for people who are seated when they shower.

You don't use it as a grab bar.

I'll take a bakers dozen of those suckers, then go out back and barf'em up. Might even slide one over to Rango since he's starved for appreciation.

They are not doubles but I did get twice as many as I should have and ate them all. Does that count?
