How to Tighten a Towel Bar, Towel Ring, or Toilet Paper Holder
Bathroom hardware such as towel bars, towel rings, and toilet paper holders can sometimes become loose from normal everyday use. Adjusting and tightening the fixtures is part of routine homeowner maintenance. This guide explains what to do when bathroom hardware becomes loose.
What You Need
- Allen/hex wrench
What to Do
Locate the set screw. On the underside of each mounting fixture is a small hole where a set-screw resides.
Tighten. Turn the set-screw clockwise to tighten.
Tips and Recommendations
Set screws can be “upside-down”, so turning clockwise may seem as if it is being turned counter-clockwise.
Take care as to not over-tighten the set screws as this may damage the mounting fixture and/or set-screw.
