Tom -- thank you for confirming that we did it right.  Had the bar in the tub installed when we replace the tub and put in the new tub surround (faux stone type) -- and had the panel installer do the bar installation to make sure it was done in way that conformed to their best practices.

I can see the advantages of having grab bars in a shower stall, especially for those people who need the additional stability.

We see many people who would not be confortable getting in and out of the tub without the grab bars Morgan. It is important that it gets done right.
