Hello, my name is Joshua Clement of Lighty Contractors and today, we'll be discussing how to install toilet handrails. I'm going to show you how to properly install a handrail in a bathroom. You're going to need a couple of tools for this. One, a number 2 Phillips head bit; two, a drill corded or battery powered, a pen or a pencil, wall anchors, the screws and handrail. Most of your handrails provide screws in the packaging. You're going to want to place the handrail about a foot in front of the toilet. This ensures that no matter the size of the person, they'll still have a good grasp of the handrail. You take your handrail, place on the wall, with pen in hand, go ahead and mark your holes. Next, we're going to take the drill and drill bit and drill the holes out. Now, take your wall anchors and place them in the hole firmly. Take your handrail, putting the screw in the top hole and lining it up with wall anchor. Take your drill, make sure you're going forward and tighten it up. Taking the screw, going to the bottom hole and tighten it up. Now, your other holes should line up pretty good. If they're off a little bit, it shouldn't make much of a difference. And there you have it. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and that's how you install handrail.
