    • Verify the length of the grab bar by measuring from the inside of one flange to the outside of the other.
    • To ensure adequate clearance, a stud finder should be used to verify there are no studs within the area where the WingIts® will be installed. Make sure that there is at least 1.5” away from the edge of the stud. If concerned, drill a pilot hole and insert a piece of wire in the shape of an “L” - twirl the wire to make sure there is nothing in the way. Once inserted, each wing assembly will spring open almost 3” in diameter
