I am happy to say that it works great, seals perfectly, not a drop of water spilling outside. We are very grateful to have your advice on the importance of the grab bar and for your having fixed it. We need to step up into our bathtub at a somewhat higher level. We find getting in and out of the bathtub very easy by grabbing it. We showed it to many of our friends. They have never heard of it and they all liked the idea. We will try to take good care of it.
