Re: Grab bar installation questions
Well at least it was on-topic spam.
A grab bar should be able to support twice the weight of the heaviest person who will use it. If that person should start falling and catch himself on the grab bar, the force can be as much as twice their weight as they arrest their fall. Be sure to consider outward and sideward as well as downward forces.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
