Hanging hooks on hollow core doors


Hello, my wife was wanting me to hang a strip of hooks on the back of our interior 6-panel doors for our bathroom, and I wanted to know if this would be strong enough to hold 3-4 towels. Thanks, Kyle.

Hi, I suggest using "molly" or "toggle" bolts to ensure a strong attachment. That would certainly support your towels.

Good luck,

Steve

Hanging hooks on hollow core doors


Probably going to get in trouble for diggin' it up from WAY back, but thought I'd share what I did...

I used toggle bolts. I was going to use the standard bolt that comes with it but it was too short. I bought the same size/thread bolt but longer and was able to secure the towel rack to the door no problem. I used this and its rock solid for now (been over 2 years). We have one in the master bath that always has a robe and at least two towels on it. Used it in a closet to hang 2 brooms, a mop, and a swiffer style unit. Also in the kiddos bath to hang towels and its working great.

I used 'spread anchors' [my name] for this! These are the ones that are about 5/16" in diameter and are purchased in various lengths to suit the wall/panel thickness! They come with a long 6-32 machine screw. As they are tightened, the 3 'wings' spread out inside the panel. Only draw back is removal! No room for mistakes!

No way! It is always appreciated when people revisit their old threads to let everyone know how the problem was solved and how they did it. That is one old thread for sure!!!

I know it's not in true DIY fashion but 3m makes a kit for no hole hooks. I noticed yesterday at HD they now have several finishes of metal as well as plastic hooks. The larger hooks will hold a wet full sized towel , bathrobe etc., and if a hook needs to be moved... no hole,or mark to fill and paint.
If your door has embossed wood grain they may not work.
