So if you have a toilet paper holder or towel rack for that matter, that looks similar to this stay tuned and I'll. Show you how to firm up that hardware and help create a bathroom you can be proud of. So before we get started I'll. Show you what we need to make this repair you'll need a couple of screwdrivers to remove and reinstall the toilet paper holder. Hardware you'll also need a 5/16 inch drill bit, which is about the same diameter as a pencil for reference and a package of the plastic toggle. Drywall anchors get the time that looked like this.
They have a flat spot here and you insert the screw right here. We'll get a closer look here in a minute. These particular ones require the 5/16 inch drill bit size and that's why I referenced this drill bit. Naturally, if you get a differently sized toggle, you will need a different sized drill bit next, we'll step over here into the water closet and I'll. Show you what I'm dealing with this toilet paper. Roll holder is extremely loose. It's attached to the wall with some screws through metal plates which are behind these two metal castings. So the first thing we need to do is remove these arms to remove the arms, we'll look underneath here and find two very small screws that must be loosened.
These screws usually require either a small flat-head screwdriver or, in some cases an Allen wrench, so I'll start loosening and pull the arm off. At the same time, we don't need to remove them all the way we just need to lower the screw enough in the housing. Now that those parts are removed.
We can see the root of the problem, even though these screws are tightened securely against these plastic drywall anchors the plate is still loose and that's because, in my opinion, drywall is a really crummy substrate to a fix things to because it's basically just dry powder pressed together with paper on each side, so after years of vigorous paper unrolling, these plastic anchors start to wear away the sheet rock on the other side and pull away from the wall.
