The grab bars are just as described. Very sturdy, a nice design, beautiful finish (we chose satin nickel). Our architect looked at them today and gave his approval. He said that Kingston Brass was a very good mfr. Also, these bars have 3 screwholes at each end, which gives much more support than only one screwhole, like some bars. My only criticism is that there were no instructions, and mounting grab bars must be done right. Also, our architect thought the screws should be a little thicker, but are probably ok.
