Please select all options.

The Solid Mount is uniquely designed for installing grab bars into pre-existing fiberglass showers/tubs where a gap between the shower and frame makes it difficult to have sturdy installations. The Solid Mount can take up to 50-60 minutes to install.

The mounts prevent tearing walls from tearing during installation of any grab bar. It’s installed through the face of the fiberglass panel and uses a patented mounting assembly to attach to the stud, sealing the hole and offering a secure mounting surface for easy grab bar attachment. The Solid Mount can span a distance of 7/8-in to 2-1/8-in between the fiberglass surround and wall stud. After installation, the Solid Mount leaves a 3-in flat surface exposed where most standard grab bars with 2-1/2-in or 3-in mounting plates can be installed. This installation meets or exceeds ANSI and ADA requirements.

  • For installation into fiberglass showers
  • Kit contains pieces for installation of one grab bar with two wall connection points
  • Includes (2) mounting devices, (2) spacers, (6) stainless steel screws, (2) bolts and washers
    ** Does not include grab bar. Grab bar sold separately.

    The only mounting bracket designed specifically for fiberglass showers and tubs.

    If you own a home with a fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub and you live with any of the following questions then the Solid Mount is for you!

    1. Do you ever feel your fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub could be safer?
    2. Have you ever felt your feet slip in your fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub?
    3. Do you ever feel like you have nothing solid to hold onto, so you can balance yourself when you are in your fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub?
    4. Would you like something solid to hold on to as you enter and exit your fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub?

    The Solid Mount is the solution for giving you a safe and secure shower or bathing experience. Fiberglass walls have no structural or stable support, not only will the fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub walls flex when pushed against but they also can crack and break over time from continual pushing or pulling. Safely and securely install a grab bar into your fiberglass shower or fiberglass tub.

    The Solid Mount does not rely on the fiberglass of the shower or tub for any of its support or strength it gets all of its support and strength from the structural 2x4's that are already part of the walls in your home.

    Very secure, but need to measure precisely

    I was very impressed with the strength and solid feel of these anchors when installed and would definitely buy them again. I installed two grab bars using them, and as with most things, I learned from the first and did the second one better. The main thing I learned was to measure very precisely if you are using concealed-end type grab bars. The part of the anchors that protrude beyond the surface of the fiberglass wall are about 1/64" smaller than the cover flanges that come with the grab bars, so if they are installed even a tiny bit off, the covers do not fit over the anchors, and will not be flush or parallel to the wall. I ended up dry fitting the grab bar mounting plates and covers onto the anchors, then marking and trimming the external anchor flanges a little to fit under the covers. It's important to do this before you put the sealant on, or you'll have to trim them in place, which is very difficult. Also just use a thin bead of sealant, or you'll end up squishing it out and making a mess on the wall. From a strength standpoint, of course it's much better to measure precisely the first time and not trim the flange at all. Overall excellent product, but would be more user friendly if made even 1/16" smaller diameter.
    First photo shows a proper installation after dry fitting and filing up to 1/16" off one edge. Second and third photos show what happens when you don't measure precisely (oops!).

    Great product. Take your time. Be very careful when Finding the studs. You don’t want to drill
    The 2 inch holes in the fiberglass and miss the studs.
    Make sure you find the center of each stude

    Grab Bar mounting kit

    The grab bar mounting kits were fantastic and worked very good however I had 2 1/2 inches space and had to shim the back of the grab bar spacer you should supply a larger spacer for future needs

    Hello John, Thank you for the glowing review. We're happy to hear that you're pleased with the Solid Mount and have made note of your recommendation for a larger spacer. Thank you for choosing #GRABDASHBAR for your safety needs!

    The kit works, but, it was ultimately too short for my application. I had to add 3/4" of an inch shim, to the stud, in order to make a solid mount. also these plastic discs (the kit) are more expensive then the medal grab bar, in most cases

    Hello Boyd, Thank you for the review. I'm glad you were able to reconcile the extra space between your shower wall and stud. The Solid Mount is based on standard shower clearance, however some builds can deviate. Thank you for choosing #GRABDASHBAR for your safety needs!
