Suction Grip Extended Handle
Category: Shower, tub, hand hold, suction, temporary, movable, bathroom
Problem: I purchased a Safety Grip Handle that is designed to attach via suction cups to a surface to provide an extra handhold for stability. When I went to use it, attaching it to my bathtub/shower wall, the tiles were spaced such that the suction cups did not align themselves with the distance between the tiles.
Action: I cut the handle in half, separating the two suction cups, and inserted a tube such that the suction cups aligned themselves with the tiles and could be attached.
Result: It works great!
Additional Thoughts: If one really requires a secure handhold getting in and out of the tub or shower, there are many that can be permanently attached.
