ShowerGlyde Model SG1 (Open Box)

$895.00 $322.20

The Open Box option comes with the same warranty as a new unit and may not come in the original box or might have minor scratches. Open-box sales are non-returnable.

ShowerGlyde Model SG1 is a revolutionary sliding transfer bench. It is designed to fit in environments where there are no obstructions adjacent to the tub (i.e. vanity, toilet). SG1 slides easily over the tub and locks in two points; on the inside and outside of the tub. This will allow for safe transfer while using the chair. SG1 can be assembled as a left or right-hand unit. One grab bar installed at the wall-side of the rails is included as an aid for sliding. The user can pull or push themselves easily along the rails. SG1 is height adjustable permitting clearance of up to a 19.5” tub. Optional extension legs are available for taller tub lips (up to 25”). SG1 comes standard with a seatbelt and a seat with three options; an open commode seat for easy washing, a reducer ring, and a solid seat insert.

Open-box units are non-returnable. NO FREE SHIPPING.

Frequently Asked Questions

Not all bathroom layouts are the same.  That's why we designed three models which would fit 90% of all bathrooms.   If there are no obstructions near the tub consider SG1. If you have a toilet near the tub, consider model SG2 as it can slide over the toilet.  If there is a vanity or limited space, consider SG3, which has a small footprint and is able to swivel.  Watch the video below, if you still need assistance, reach out to us. 

ShowerGlyde has a lifetime warranty on the frame and 1-year warranty on the rest of the components.

ShowerGlyde weight capacity is 330lb (150kg)

Optional armrests, featuring flip-back and height-adjustable capabilities, are available.

ShowerGlyde now offers a padded seat cover. It's designed with a gentle contour seat, making it comfortable to sit on and easy to clean. 

ShowerGlyde can clear a 19-inch tub.  We offer an extension accessory that can clear a 25-inch high tub:

ShowerGlyde will not rust.  SG is made of aluminum, plastic, and stainless steel components.

Only ShowerGlyde Model 3 comes with a standard swivel seat. You may purchase a swivel seat for models 1 and 2 on the ShowerGlyde accessory page:

SG2 pros & cons

We purchased the ShowerGlyde SG2 (Open Box version) and have been very pleased with it after 3 uses.
pros:
As others have commented, it is sturdy, stable, and slides (glydes ;-) smoothly & easily. Our toilet and tub (with shower wand) aren't together, so we're using it strictly as a tub entrance & exit device.
We're using it for a 91yo mildly arthritic stroke victim and they've gotten quickly comfortable with it --having transitioned to the SG2 from a swivel & slide competitor model (we needed the extended length of the SG2, as we're using it with a sit & stand/"Sara Stedy" transport device; the SG2 sits almost exactly at the height our Toto commode seat does, at 17" height)
The seat is a good size for our 164lb individual usage, and the cutout makes washing much easier than a solid seat (as our prior unit had); we've not used the insert, but it fits and would work fine if/when needed
I like that the leg feet aren't hard plastic and have a hard rubber feel to them
I also like that it has an optional (additional cost) swivel seat that can be ordered separately/in the future
Order processing and shipment was prompt, and packaging secure for safe shipping reciept.

cons:
none, really; it's pleasingly functional and has greatly enhanced bathing effectiveness/thoroughness with ease (and @ open box = indistinguishable-from-new price, shipping free, satisfied with the value)

neutrals:
* I wish the seat had handles attached to it, along with the option for the one at one end; it is the only slightly discomforting (new user?) factor for us with the SG2
* update: according to SolutionBased rep in an asked Question: " The legs are white coated aluminum." original: I'm concerned about the metal the white painted legs are made of, as to future corrosion potential due to perpetual moisture exposure; hopefully they're either thinner aluminum as well, or stainless steel (?)
* I'm concerned with the plastic T braces that attached the legs and handle to the rails; no way of knowing the durability of such these days, visually
* I'm concerned with the nylon-type rollers used below the seat and on the rails, again as to longevity; while perhaps they provide slight cushioning and/or noise reduction, i'd rather have found machined aluminum rollers used (especially at this price point)
* I would like to see the black plastic parts in blue (or grey); this is purely an aesthetic/cosmetic preference, nothing functional
* it would be nice for the seat to have some padding (like *cough* one competitor's); tho not padded/cushioned, it serves our main purpose adequately

Overall, 5 star purchase for us (thus far...)

A safe, affordable solution for showering a disabled person.

The purchase of a ShowerGlyde Model SG1 chair has changed my life for the better! As a 78-year-old, above-knee amputee, showering has long been a challenge for me, but the purchase of a ShowerGlyde chair has made it a safe, refreshing part of my day. I feel so safe on the seat on the sturdy frame and gliding the seat into the shower and back out with the easy-to-use glide system. Not having to make any major structural changes to our bathroom to make this usable was so nice. It was a delight to work with Israel and his staff as they worked with us on FaceTime to recreate our bathroom in their showroom to enable us to see that it really would work at our house. We had a totally awesome experience with SolutionBased and would highly recommend the product, company and staff.

Best shower bench

Our occupational therapist recommended a shower transfer bench. We bought several different models. The Showerglyde is by far the best one. It slides really easily in comparison to the others and feels really solid. I wish they had a padded seat which is supposedly coming soon.

Great

This thing is solid. Slides well and feels comfortable.
