bath tub grab bars

Does anyone have experience with grab bars mounted directly in the tub? I noticed the American Standard Cambridge tub can be ordered 'pre-drilled' for grab bar installation.

RE: bath tub grab bars

Just a thought, the bars in the tub may be too low for functionality. I have seen the bars suggested to be mounted at 36". But that is in a shower/tub situation I believe. I mounted mine at 24" above the floor for my tub only installation and it is a good height. I have another grab bar behind my tub for towel use and it is around 42" above the floor. My tub is 14" tall I think and 5' long.

I read somewhere to mount the centerline of the grab bar 24" back from the front of the tub.
