There was/is a anchor that they claimed would work in drywall but cannot remember the details, but have to be skeptical about it as seems to me the hole will just be bigger when it pulls out. If the info can be found will update.

I'm slowing down......

I assume the bar is SS, cut the bar in half, add or shorten then weld it back together .....

It's a modification of the Chocolate Lick Protocol. You are too old to know.

An anchor for drywall might be good to hold up a picture etc, but would not be of use for a safety hand hold for one needing to support a human body in case of a miss-step to avoid falling once it's grabbed on for dear life.

Go with the longer to catch fully on two studs and if need be repaint that entire wall for all to match in color and textures.

The exact recipe for damp sea sponge dipped in sheet rock mud is a trade secret. Locked up along with the formula for Coca Cola. Secret herbs and spices kind of thing.

That is really my opinion, that anchor would just make a bigger hole, nothing like proper fasteners in the studs for secure mounting, which is why I used the word "claimed" on the holding power in drywall.

So we finished up the grab bar project today. I patched the holes from the old install with some self stick screen and a coat of spackle. The wife put a second coat of spackle today and feathered it out better. I shot it with a can of spray texture I got at Ace. Then SWMBO did a repaint of the bathroom. Very happy with the results. I should have taken pictures of the holes from the old mounting setup easily 1" or better.
