We looked all over for a shower grab bar that would look right with our other shower fittings and this was it. It probably isn't ADA-compliant (I don't know for sure) but it feels sturdy enough for me. The bar has a high quality look and feel to it. While I would have bought a longer one if it had been available, I am now actually quite happy with the 15" bar. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this bar again, and I would also buy from QualityBath.com again. They shipped quickly and securely.
