How to install a new towel bar


Step 1. Position the towel bar and make a mark along the outside of the mounting trim on each side. (Try to avoid positioning the bar so the new holes will fall directly over the old ones.) Repeat for the other side.

 

Step 2. Center the mounting plate between the marks made in step 1, and then make marks for the screw locations. Repeat this process on the other side. Check the marks with a level, and adjust if necessary Use a stud finder to check if the marks are located over studs.

 

TOOL TIP

If the old plates are secure, leave them in place. To ensure the new towel bar fits your existing plates, measure the mounting plates remaining on the wall.

 

Step 3. Drill pilot holes, and then hold the first mounting plate in place and drive screws to attach it to the wall. Repeat on the other side.
