Stepping into the bath using a grab rail
In order to make it easier for you to step into your bath, you could hold onto a grab rail and lift your legs over. An alternative method is to hold onto the rim of the bath and put your legs out behind you, placing them into the bath one at a time. This will make it easier for you to maintain your balance as you step into the bath.
Help with fitting
Help from a qualified fitter
If the products you are ordering are fixed to the wall or floor, we recommend that you contact a local fitter/handyman to complete this work. It is always a good idea to use someone who has been recommended to you.

How to fix your rails safely
We recommend that you ask a qualified joiner and/or plumber to fit grab rails in your home, depending on where you are fitting this. Discuss what position will help you most with your fitter. The fitters will know whether you have a solid or stud wall and fit the rail appropriately. Please ensure that any grab rail you use is fitted according to the manufacturer’s instructions as there are safety standards that need to be taken in to account.
