I need to mount a vertical rod that will hold a handheld shower head. There are two brackets.
The lower one will go into the fiberglass shower stall. No sheet rock behind it, no stud. The water pipes are in the way to install a horizonal 2 x 4 between studs. I plan on using adhesive to glues a 12" square of 3/4 ply to the back of the shower stall and then use toggle bolts there.
The upper on has to mount on drywall above the shower stall. Same problem with not being able to install a 2x4 between studs. Could I do the same thing as the bottom? Back the sheet rock with a large piece of 3/4 ply?
