How to fix a broken towel rack

Can you reuse anchor holes?
After the drywall anchor and screw have been removed, they can be reused. The drywall anchor and screw may require a larger hole during reinstallation on the second go-around, and removing a drywall anchor that isn’t designed to be removed can potentially damage your wall or ceiling.
How do you remove a ceramic towel bar from drywall?
Place a chisel in the space between the holders and the wall that you created with the grout saw. Tap the chisel with a hammer and move it around all sides of the ceramic towel rack holder. This may separate the holder from the wall.
How do you fix a screw that keeps coming loose in drywall?
The easy repair is to replace it with a larger conical anchor, but that anchor will probably also pull out in time. A more effective solution is to replace it with a plastic screw -in anchor, a molly bolt or a toggle bolt. The last two types of anchors clamp against the back of the drywall for extra holding power.
How do you glue a towel bar to the wall?
- Position the towel bar on the wall at the height you wish to mount it.
- Check for level. Make a pencil mark above each end of the towel bar to confirm its position.
- Apply a small bead of Loctite® Power Grab® All Purpose Construction Adhesive to the back side of each end piece.
- Allow the glue to dry for 24 hours.
Can you hang a towel rack on drywall?
Drywall is a common wall material in modern homes and is one of the most difficult materials to securely fasten to a towel bar. That is because drywall is made of gypsum plaster and is too soft to hold screws.
Does a towel rack need to go into a stud?
Studs provide the best, most secure place to anchor a towel bar. But when there isn’t a stud where you want it to be, your towel – bar screws need a good anchor in the drywall. Forget about those cone-shaped plastic anchors often packaged with the bar; they pull out too easily.
