Bathtub Safety Bar
Portable and Affordable

I found this DMI Bathtub Bar last year at Aldi's for just $19.99 and decided to pick one up in anticipation of my parents' visit. We found the bar to be heavy duty, well made, and securing it to the tub was a snap. I also liked the portability of it. It takes no tools to install. Rather, you pick the best spot along the side of the tub and simply clamp it on. It is surprisingly secure, even with my husband pulling hard on it.

Mom and Dad both have mobility issues and loved it. What a difference it made for them getting into and out of the tub!

I thought about removing it once Mom and Dad left, but found it is also great for little ones. My four year old uses it to steady himself and keep from slipping on the wet tub. I LOVE that!

Really, I can't recommend it enough.

Aldi's is offering it again, I see, starting on January 11th, for the same price. Check it out, and if you know of someone who would benefit from such a bar, you might want to tell them about this one. It could potentially be a lifesaver.

Since they will probably have them in stock for only a limited time, I wanted to post this right away. But I'll also link this to Works For Me Wednesday next week at Rocks In My Dryer so that the heads up reaches more people.
