Suction Pad Diameter:
The suction cups measure 4.7 inches in diameter. To work properly you must install on a smooth, flat, non-porous surface. These grab bars will work on tile, but the tiles cannot be smaller than 5 inches square. The suction will not hold if any of the suction cup is on the grout line. They are not recommended for use on drywall, wall board, wall paper, wood paneling, plaster or any other porous surface. While they may appear to hold for a short time, the suction will diminish quickly and may not provide the necessary pull strength when you need it.
On a smooth, flat surface, the suction vacuum will hold for a very long time - sometimes even months. But, because all surfaces have a different porosity, you should periodically remove and reset your portable grab bar every few weeks or as needed to insure that the hold is secure. These grab bars were designed for use in the tub and shower and it will not harm them to become wet. All inner component are made of non-corrosive materials and will not rust. They will not damage your your tub/shower surround.
The single grip portable grab bar has been tested to hold up to roughly 200lbs of pull pressure. The average, healthy, adult human can generate about 60lbs of pull strength using their own power.
