How can I replace a loose grab bar in my one piece tub and shower. It is tarnished and the plastic end pieces have disintegrated so that it completely slides out leaving holes. It is in a condo that I rent so I am worried about an older person grabbing it and falling when it comes out.
That's a resonable concern. You have to remove it and re-install a new grab bar proberly in the wall studs if you are not talking about tearing out the current one-piece tub unit. Then fill in the holes left behind by the old grab bar with silicone caulk that most closely matches the color of your tub wall. There is a minimum length screw that is needed for grab bars. This looks like a good site at a quick glance http://gethomerepairhelp.com/2010/03...-installation/ .
