Fold up Side of Toilet Grab Bars help improve mobility around the toilet by providing a sturdy accessible grab bar with offset rails (to help reduce wrist strain when gripping the lower rail). When not in use, these swing up grab bars can fold up against the wall.
Caregivers sometimes worry about folding grab bars unexpectedly falling down while attending to a patient. These Side of Toilet safety bars feature a friction hinge that can hold itself anywhere between the up and down position, allowing custom use.
Install a side of toilet grab bar on both sides of the toilet for maximum support. These fold down grab bars meet and exceed federal guidelines when properly installed with wood backing behind the wall.
NOTE: If there is no wood backing behind the wall of the toilet, there are a couple of options to choose from.
