Supplies and Tools:

Hexadecimal chrome screws

pipe black 1/2 inch
U-shape chrome bracket with screws

These pictures were taken from a public bathroom. Its funny how these stalls are used. Today, the middle bar that hold the walls from falling over was someone pull up bar. Yes, its true bathroom stall now come with exercise equipment so young people can stay fit.

This post shows the three steps to correct this problem.

Step 1: Fig.1 above and fig.2 below shows an L-bracket with Phillip screws was used to hold up a bathroom stall side rail. The L-bracket is not strong enough to hold the bar if customers decided to do their gym exercises in the restroom. The screws appeared that they may have been tampered with and tried to remove the stall support. The solution below should help your your customers do not show any common sense.

Step 2: The difference between fig.1 the chrome L-bracket and fig.3 and fig.4 shows the aaddle chrome bracket is that the saddle holds the entire bar. When the bar was re-installed a pipe bar was added to the aluminum bar to give it more strength. This will help the youngsters from falling on their bottoms and also prevent the wall from falling onto innocent customers.
