This depends on which model you have, but here are two solutions for you.
1. Your model should have come with instructions. Read the instructions to the point where they tell you the distance between the screws. As far as if your bathroom wall will be long enough measure it. If the space is wider than your model, you are GTG.

2. If you have a tape measure, just measure between the screws making sure you are in the center of each hole. That will be the width you will put the holes in your bathroom wall.

Heavy duty construction adhesive

Ceramic is particularly difficult to bond to due to the polished surface. The shelf you describe is probably heavy, but you have no dimensions or weight provided. I see these shelves fail frequently when they are only "glued" to the wall. It should have been installed to the wall first with a bracket arrangement, then the wall flashed and tiled around the shelf (presuming you have tile walls).

I would recommend that you use stainless steel brackets fastened into the walls (may require using toggle bolts - be sure to run the bolt through the bracket first!) to support the shelf. Use brackets at each wall, then use silicone sealant over the fastener heads. Use the largest brackets that the shelf will allow, you might be able to just epoxy the shelf on top of the brackets rather than trying to install fasteners into the shelf piece, which might break it.

This vendor has nice stainless steel brackets:

I purchased bunk bed for my kids in US, Creekside taffy twin/full step bunk bed.

The number of different sizes is confusing and it is important to measure carefully in order to order the right ones.

Few people will be able to tell you what size you need and I can't. When I bought two sets of bedbolts online a while ago I found the barrel nuts and bolts were supplied in sets and I needed to know the bolt diameter and length and the diameter and length of the barrel nut. The website I used showed how to measure and if you still have a nut this will be simple for you.
I had no nuts or bolts and had to start from scratch, which was simple once I had found something like a rod or tube that was a good fit in the bedframe - a matter of inserting it and marking it and then measuring the diameter and the distance to the mark.

In reality I found the sets of bolts so cheap it made little sense not to order spares. They arrived 2 days later. If you are in any doubt why not order a few sizes...

The method of fixing the bedframe together is so crude even the wrong size of nut and bolt will sometimes be enough to hold it together, though for strength and reliability the right size is obviously better.

I suggest a google search for bed bolts and nuts and then visit a few sites to check ways of discovering how to measure.

Can I wall-mount a Hoover Aqua vision tumble dryer?

Depends on the wall. Unless solid masonry it would be better standing on floor-standing racking or a platform.

I mounted our half-size dryer on a home-made shelf above our chest freezer as a space-saving measure and given the space and a very substantial wall there is little reason why a full-size dryer should not be similarly mounted.

The cabinet of the dryer is not rigid enough for direct wall mounting (if it was it would be far too heavy) and so it must stand on a shelf strong enough to support the weight of the machine and the load and the shelf must also be capable of absorbing a certain amount of vibration and be purpose-built to prevent the machine rolling off due to the vibration or internal forces.

I don't know of any commercially-built shelves for the purpose so one would need constructing, probably from a mixture of timber and steel or aluminium and the whole very firmly anchored to the wall with through-bolts if possible or resin-bonded anchors or similar. Ordinary plugs and screws would not be suitable.

How to install a Crane Floating Glass Shelf?

Almost all measuring tapes have markings for the wall studs so once you've found one stud, placing one mark on the stud the next mark indicates the next stud.

Enlarged hole in wall

If possible, I would recommend moving the shelf and the supporting brackets. This doesn't always have to be a major move, just enough for you to find a stud, or studs to mount the shelving brackets to. The reason I would recommend moving the brackets/shelf, is that you want to make sure that your shelf can support the weight you will place on it, avoiding this same scenario in the future. You can locate the studs a couple of different ways. You can do a visual inspection for nails or screws in the wall that are used to attach the sheetrock or other material used for walls.(In most scenarios the studs are/should run vertically (up/down) If you have a hammer you can tap on the wall where the nails are located to ensure that they are in the wall stud(s). You will notice as you tap your hammer on the wall, that where there is a stud, the sound will be solid/dense. You can also use a stud finder. If you do not own one, you can pick one up at any hardware store, and they are inexpensive in most cases. I highly recommend that, if possible, always attach shelving brackets with screws instead of nails, due to their superior holding strength.You can pick up some wall spackle, which is inexpensive, and fill the hole that is in your wall, and touch up the paint if necessary. I hope that you find this information useful, and I want to thank you for using fixya!

I need to know what is the distance between the fixing bolts to the wall due I already have the perforations holes done on the wall...others dimensions fit very well

The peroration holes should be the holes for the bolts. If you followed the instructions, the two perforation holes are nothing more than a pilot hole for the bolts or screws.
If you are not sure of this answer, just measure the perforation holes (write down the distance, being sure to measure between center to center of the holes). Do the same on the unit itself. I bet they are exactly the same.***WARNING*** IF YOU ARE AFIXING ON A TILED WALL YOU MUST USE A CERTAIN DRILL BIT.***

Have got a sa-pm08 ,brill system, just has just

Hi, this might help you:

I think the best and safest solution is to search and contact a specilialist electronics in your area and have him take a look at it, maybe it just needs cleaning, a firmware update or any software that fails that can be fixed like that.

Hope it's useful, and greetings,

Need to hang a shelf to a wall with metal studs?

In order to support any true weight (like books) you will need to use wood blocking between the metal studs. Measure space between the studs, cut blocks to fit and mount at location where brackets will be.

For lighter weight applications, you can use an expansion anchor (but not the cheep little plastic ones that are often provided). A common name for this anchor would be a "molly anchor" and they are available at all hardware stores in a variety of capacities.

What is the required rough in dimension? I am replacing it

If you have the old toilet removed and are looking at the flange - the piece that holds the bolts to hold toilet down- measure off the back wall to the center of the opening of the flange. If the old toilet is still installed you can measure on one side to the closet bolts holding the toilet down and this will get you a general idea.If you need more assistance let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
