Went today to install some grab bars for a lady whose husband is coming home from rehab after breaking a hip. She wanted to install a grab bar by the commode and 1 in the shower. Shower, no problem found the studs, pretty straight forward. By the commode, different story, it is a cement block wall that separates the 2 condos. So now all you have is 1/2" drywall and a 1x furring strip then the block wall. This gives you 1 1/4" of useless space as the drywall or the 1x have no holding power how would you mount this bar? Oh and the man is 6'2" over 200# not a little guy.
