Towel bars usually have a base that attaches to the wall with a screw. To expose the screw, you must loosen and or remove a small screw on the underside of the mounts. Once the screw is exposed just tighten it.

A bolt won't tighten all the way just keeps spinning, but it also won't unscrew out of the wall. What should I do to get this bolt out without stripping the thing?


Yes just pull it out - it will pull out the anchor on the screw, then replace it with a new larger anchor and screw. or fill the hole and re drill a new hole the right size.

How do you fix a Moen Towel Bar when the mounting system has come apart from the wall?


There are larger screw-type anchors available at a hardware store. If the hole is a half inch, you can possibly use an expanding wing type "molly" anchor. it's hard to assemble the screws through the bracket, then put on the butterfly, and shove the folded butterfly into the hole, but it's doable.

How do I find the wall bracket to attached bathroom hardware to?


conniesieber-

To locate wood framing in the wall you will need an electronic "stud-finder", which can detect the relative change in density of materials within the wall and will sound an alarm when those materials are encountered. However, the odds the framing is exactly where you want to hang the towel bar is slim. Another option is to use anchors - there are different types of anchors for drywall, for lath and plaster, and for tile/tileboard. There are anchors that will work for your specific application.

The folks at your local hardware store will make sure you get the right type of anchor. Then follow the instructions that come with the anchors and the towel bar.

If you need further instructions as you proceed, don't hesitate to reply to this message and I will try to answer your questions.

Hope this helps.

The left bracket/brace is off the wall. There is one long screw in the back center. How is this put back together?


There should be a small screw in each of the arms that secure the towel bar to the wall mounts. You will need to loosen each of these to remove the towel bar from the wall and to release the mounting bracket which has pulled free. To repair you need to puchase a larger size moly plug, toggle mount or other suitable hardware to secure the mounting bracket to the sheetrock wall (should not have pulled free is screwed in to the stud). Once you secure the mounting bracket then you are able to re-install the towel bar by placing the arms over the mounting brackets and tightening the small screws on each arm of the towel bar.

The towel bar just fell apart. The wall mounts remain in tact as well as the mounting hardware on 1 side (the piece that the bars (this towel rack has 2 bars) slide into. I can't figure out what holds...


The part that holds the bar up should either have a screw in the bottom to tighten up against the wall bracket or a hole to access a scew and turn the screw out to tighten to the wall bracket

How to Install Towel Bar?


Since towel bars are usually installed onto separate hardware that's mounted on the walls, use the actual hardware as a template to mark exactly where to drill your mounting holes. Hold a piece of mounting hardware against the masking tape and use your pencil to mark the actual spots to drill your holes. Use different-sized drill bits to drill for the two ends. The Molly bolt or wall anchor will require a much larger diameter hole than the screws going directly into the stud. (The size of the hole required for the wall fastener will be marked on the packaging.) Install the wall fastener into the wall, then mount the hardware onto the wall and place the ends of the towel bar over the hardware. Attach the towel bar to the mounting hardware using the screws included with the towel bar. These are commonly small-slotted screws located on the bottom of the end pieces of the towel bar.
