what is the proper length and placement of a tub grab bar?

taratuneOctober 19, 2007

I was wondering what the proper length and placement of a safety grab bar is for a standard bath tub? I think it is suppose to be slanted but I'm not sure how long the grab bar is suppose to be and where is should stop and end.

Is there a trick to installing a grab bar into a tiled wall?
