Make sure you use up-to-date information,
This review is from: Carex Universal Bath Bench with Back, with Support for up to 400 Pounds, Features Notch for Holding Hand-held Shower Spray, Easily Adjustable, No Tools Required (Health and Beauty)I always sort my reviews by usefulness and was amazed to see a one-star review complaining about it being "dangerously slippery". He complained about the lack of drain holes in the seat base. Let me say first that it is FULL of S shaped drain holes. I don't know if they changed the design or the reviewer was mistaken about which product he was reviewing. Luckily I bought it before reading that review. I was on the Amazon site checking previous orders and realized that I forgot to review this excellent chair. This is the best shower chair that we have ever owned, period. Since my wife has been disabled for decades, that has meant lots of shower chairs. All of the previous ones had aluminum legs which bent easily, especially if you settled into the chair abruptly or set it on an uneven or curved surface. I bought this chair after my recent medical issues because I needed one that could support my lard butt. It makes all those previous chairs look like jokes. It is EXTREMELY... Read more

Sturdy Bath Seat, easy to assemble with no tools, good features,
This review is from: Carex Universal Bath Bench with Back, with Support for up to 400 Pounds, Features Notch for Holding Hand-held Shower Spray, Easily Adjustable, No Tools Required (Health and Beauty)We bought two of these bath seats at different times within the past 10 months, one for my boyfriend when he broke his leg and one for my 82 year old dad. You can buy this seat with or without the backrest. It is very easy to assemble (without tools) and even with 220 pounds on it, the bath seat was sturdy. The literature says it can hold up to 400 pounds. The height is adjustable by turning the four round, rubber feet. The fact that the feet are round and not flat is important because it means that you can put the chair right up to the back of the bathtub (or the sides of the bathtub) where the bottom of the bathtub curves up and the chair will not wobble as it would if the feet were flat. The rubber feet will not mark your bathtub and do NOT let the seat slide around. The seat bottom is lightly textured so that you do not slide off of it when you soap up but is still easy to clean. There are notches on both sides of the seat to put a handheld shower (although, if you want to... Read more

This chair is all you need.,
This review is from: Carex Universal Bath Bench with Back, with Support for up to 400 Pounds, Features Notch for Holding Hand-held Shower Spray, Easily Adjustable, No Tools Required (Health and Beauty)I bought a folding stool for the shower and if you leaned forward or back it would collapse on itself - you had to sit on just the right spot and leave weight on your feet. Needless to say I didn't shower much, couldn't do my hair at all (since I got dizzy leaning my head back or forward) and had to still rely on baby wipes to keep clean. I was dying for a shower.
I looked on Amazon again to see what I could find. This chair and other looked promising. Some that looked like it had bad reviews and the chair would crack and break easily; some chairs weren't as sturdy; some didn't hold much weight.
This chair held lots of weight (400lbs) so I felt it would be the sturdiest of all the chairs. I liked the hand-grips on the side. I liked the back-rest. I liked the rubber feet and that it's adjustable.
So easy to set up and set into the bathtub. It's easy to pull forward or back. You can sit your whole weight on it without any wobbles or feeling it would fold on itself (like... Read more
