5 essential steps to install a toilet paper holder

Step 1: Determine where to mount and balance the brackets

Should install at a location near the toilet bowl, within reach of hands to easily remove the paper when needed. Toilet paper is easy to absorb water, so never choose a too low position, install the rack about 1 meter from the floor. After selecting the appropriate installation location. Use a ruler on the shelf and align until the air bubbles in the liquid column are centered. The support axis is then parallel to the horizontal plane. By doing so, your scroll won’t slip out and fall, Then use a marker to mark the position to attach the frame to the wall.

Step 3: Drill the anchor hole and insert the anchor into the hole

At the position marked in step 2, you choose a drill with the right size, use training and drill up the wall. Then insert the anchors into the holes just drilled. You can use a screwdriver to screw or use a hammer to hammer to anchor deep into the wall.

In this step, you need to make sure to rotate the torsion screw firmly, turning it until the frame no longer moves. Otherwise, your toilet paper racks will be loose and quickly slip off.
