Do I need to attach a hand shower slide bar to a stud?

Hand shower slide bars have become extremely popular with modern families due to their great versatility. They offer the ability to rinse all parts of your body and to allow even the shortest family member to shower in comfort. They are easy to install so anyone with minimal handyman skills can do this. It is advisable to anchor a shower slide bar to a stud but if one isn't available where you want to mount it, the bar can be installed with toggle bolts by screwing through your tile or surround and into the backerboard of the shower unit. These toggles will anchor it firmly.
