The Security Pole and Curved Grab Bar makes it easy to stand from a couch, bed, or toilet. Easy to install by using a wrench to extend the pole upward wedging it between the floor and the ceiling. No screwing or nailing to walls, floor, or ceiling. I have two of these security poles that I purchased for my elderly parents while they were still living at home. I installed one in the den near my dad's favorite chair. And I installed the second one on my dad's side of the bed. They work great for getting from a sitting to a standing position. The curved grab bar provides four different places to grip the pole at four different elevations. The curved grab bar is also adjustable, rotating to 8 different positions around the pole in 45 increments.
As shown in the pictures, I added some plywood boards with foam padding to the top of the poles to spread out the wedging force. When I removed the poles after two years of use, the "popcorn" ceiling was not damaged at all. The plywood pieces and foam padding are included.
Originally, these poles cost about $200 each at the local medical products store. I'm selling them for half that price, $100 for one pole, or two for $175.
