Depending on the size of pipe you are using, buy corresponding sized metal plumbing flanges which have screw holes in them and a threaded middle. Screw the flanges in the desired location as termination points. Buy the same size slip-IPF pvc fitting, screw it into the flange and glue the proper length into the slip end.

I would not like to test such on my 78 year old mother. Today's glues are great and some will adhere under water, even, but in this particular application, I don't think I could recommend glue.

Probably the best will be Tapcon screws with recessed heads. You will need to buy the corresponding bit in order for them to bite correctly.
