Bathtub Shortener Tub Barrier with 3 Pads

Item Number: R1400282SU by Mobeli

Consists of a board with 3 suction pads that mounts across the bottom of your bathtub to shorten the length. Keeps the bather from sliding or submerging in a tub that is too long. Not all personal use, hygiene items are retrunable. Hygiene items may incur a restock charge for returns, please check the policy of your ordering company. The center plate is 11.7" tall x 19.7" wide at top and 16.9" wide at bottom. With the pads the overall width is 19.9" stretching to 27.3" Depending on the angle of the pad your maximum distance at the top of the tub is 27.3". 

Note, for the suction pad to adhere to the wall, the surface must be air tight, with no grout lines, cracks or texture under the pad. Our stainless steel plates R1461414 can be adhered to many non-suitable surfaces to allow the suction pads to adhere. The plates can span over grout line or cracks, fill in slightly textured surfaces. Telescoping models will allow you to adjust the bar to fit between grout lines, seams or cracks.

If the “will not work” describes your walls, please discuss this with your dealer before ordering. Some grab bar assemblies may not be returnable.

Examples of surfaces that will not work:

New construction with only a few coats of paint will still allow the suction pad to suck air through the plasterboard or drywall. The suction pad will not hold and may even pull the paint off the wall.

Natural stone, clay or cultured marble which has a not been coated with sealant will allow the suction pad to suck air and release.

Textured surface, whether stone, cement, tile or plaster will not hold the suction pad.

Cracked plaster or wall surface. Walls with seams in the grab bar area.

Tile smaller than 5” square. A suction pad over a grout line will release. Plastic tile will not support your body weight.

Dirty, oily, greasy wall surface. Clean surface with alcohol first.

Wallpaper, the suction pad will peel the paper from the wall behind it.

Tub surround walls that are not properly attached to the wall behind them. Although the suction pad may hold to the wall, the wall itself may pull away under your weight.

What surface will work:

                Tile greater equal to or larger than 5”x5”, with a smooth surface.

                Smooth fiberglass, porcelain, enamel-coated cast iron tubs.

                Vinyl, plastic or fiberglass tub surrounds that are firmly attached to the wall or house framing behind them. Securely attached with construction adhesive or mechanical means (screws or nails). They must have a smooth, clean surface.
