About Fold-up Supports
Fold-up Supports offer a safe, sturdy alternative to a grab bar. The no-pinch, space-saving design is ideal for installation next to a toilet or sink, where it’s important to have a steady handhold and a clear approach path. In addition, the trombone-shaped bar permits many hand-hold positions to help users get the grip and leverage they need.
When out of the way, all Fold-up Supports are held securely in the upright position, yet release easily with a slight tug.
Fold-up Supports are available in white, blue, and stainless steel to meet many needs and preferences.
