The hanging bathe rod is a neat and low cost different for a special look to your bathtub. The rod additionally eliminates the necessity for 2 partitions for help. This method works nice on freestanding tubs and areas the place privateness is required, indoors or out. You do not want a number of mechanical abilities to construct this equipment, just a bit endurance.
The next will present the common residence proprietor or skilled installer the mandatory supplies and steps wanted to finish the bathe rod challenge.
1. 2 – half of” x 12″ eye bolts
2. 2 – half of” -13 x 1-3/4″ rod coupling nut
3. 2 – half of” -13 x 12″ uss/coarse zinc plated Threaded Rod

6. 2 – 5/8″ spherical minimize washers
7. 6′ foot of 1” cpvc water line
8. 1 can spray paint.
Put together materials for set up
Very first thing you will want to do is measure the space out of your ceiling to your bathe flooring. (if over 8″ you want to purchase an extended threaded rod).
Upon getting decided the quantity of rod you will want then you want to pre assemble them (2 compete eye bolts and threaded rods) merely mix the attention bolts to the threaded rod utilizing the rod coupling nut. On the opposite finish of the threaded rod that can go through ceiling defend the threads by putting in 2 – ½” nuts and one minimize washer on every rod finish. You will want someplace to spray paint the finished models, plus the 1” cpvc water line. In my image you possibly can see that I mounted mine in a bit of scrap drywall. I set the depth I wanted for the rods, run the nuts and washer down and put in a nut beneath to simulate a take a look at mount.
Paint the cpvc water line separately-paint total water line to match eye bolt coloration.
That is essentially the most troublesome a part of the meeting. As soon as the paint has dried on the 1” cpvc, measure the space between the highest of loop (the place it meets the rod) and the washer used for the ceiling set up. Upon getting decided how lengthy a bit you will want, double the measure and mark the pipe,(this ought to be sufficient to do either side). Now, discover the midway measurement and mark the pipe once more. Place the pipe on a secure floor and safe as a way to drill a gap. You will want a ½”drill bit. Drill a ½” gap fully through the middle of the pipe. Makes use of a noticed to chop pipe in half through the middle of the outlet you drilled, then minimize the 2 items to size, take away any burs and contact up paint. This offers you two items of pipe with a “U” form on the top to sit down down over the attention bolts as soon as put in, it’s a extra skilled look when completed.
Enable all items to dry for not less than 12hrs previous to meeting.
Decided the mounting location
The bathe I’m utilizing above is an open two wall bathe, I’ll measure to the middle of the ground curb from the tile wall. I’ll switch that measurement on to the ceiling utilizing a pencil. The eyebolt location from the top wall ought to be not less than three inches to permit for clearance of the rubber rod bumper on the bathe rod.
Set up the meeting
Utilizing a drill with a ½” drill bit, drill the holes within the ceiling the place you marked.
Take away the non permanent nut from the top of the eyebolt. You will want assist for a part of the set up, until you’ll find a toggle nut to suit a ½” rod. Place one piece of the cpvc pipe over the threaded rod meeting with the notches towards the loop. Screw on nut sufficient to permit for 1 ½” washer and 1 5/8” washer plus sufficient threads exhibiting to penetrate ceiling and set up higher ½” washer. Have somebody push the rod through the drywall and maintain till you possibly can place the washer and nut to the highest facet of the drywall. (That is finest accomplished early within the day earlier than you attic temperatures start to rise, watch out attic temperatures can attain 140 levels on a summer time day). Maintain the attention bolt and securely tighten the higher nuts with washers and that is it.
As soon as put in it ought to seem like this.See image of put in rod.
Now, simply set up the bathe curtain rod through the holes, it could be essential to take away the rubber bumper finish to clear eyebolt gap. Begin on one finish and slide fully through, reinstall rubber bumper. You then’re prepared to put in the bathe hooks and curtain, accomplished it ought to seem like the image under.
