Frequently Asked Questions

+ Will it rust in my shower?

The Dependa-Bar is made out of stainless steel, so it won't rust like zinc or chrome plated steel will over time.

+ Is the DependaBar reversible?

Yes, you can choose to install the bottom rail facing either 'right' or 'left' depending on how your shower and/or tub is configured.

+ Since there is no grip, would my hands slip on the rail when using it in the shower?

There are two versions of the DependaBar. The Knurled version is textured in gripping areas, and the white finish is smooth, but easy to clean and contains anti-microbial properties.

+ What is the space between the rail and the wall?

Testimonials

Works just as intended on either side of the tub. Provides rail when walking past tub to toilet, and it assists for toilet and tub

Got this for my Dad after a stroke left him paralyzed on his left side. This provides enough balance to enable him to pull up his own pants. No more falls!
