Grab handle in the shower cubical.


This idea, recommended by the Chinese safety expert "Ah Sup", gives one something to hold onto, other than the lightly attached fixtures supplied as standard. The grab handle available at any boating store, is fastened through the wall, held in place by a couple of large dia. washers and nyloc nuts.

The soap dispensers was from the green shed.

I think (cant really remember) I used a smear of Sikaflex under the flanges each end, lightly tightened it up, then the next day (after drying) fully tightened the nuts. I had better look (removing an access panel) and check for leaks, in that and the valves.
I'm putting these up, because we are all in isolation, a great time to do these kind of jobs.

Use 316 stainless bolts, but not the rubbish from large hardware stores, the heads snap off too easily.

Whitworths Marine sell Whitworth thread (imperial). There are plenty of others selling metric thread.
