One arm contemporary toilet tissue holder


Hi everyone:

I know this is not a plumbing problem, but it is a hardware problem in the bathroom and I couldn't find another category that fit this problem.

I have one of those "one arm contemporary toilet tissue holders" in my bathroom, and that arm was leaned on and knocked off today (by me of course!)

I can't figure out how one gets this arm back on again. There are no threads or anything to screw the thing back on. There is a kind of knob that protrudes from the circle of metal that is flush against the wall tiles, but that gives me no clue. The end of the arm is hollow.

I have towel racks of this same type of design and I sure hope they don't come off. How I wish I had horse and buggy hardware.

Can anyone tell me how this arm goes back on?

I found some of these holders pictured on the Internet in case someone wants to see that they look like. They have no visible means of support!

Thanks.

Shirley H.

If it popped off of that knob, it stands to reason that it should pop back on with a little persuasion unless it's damaged out of shape. Line it up on the knob and bump it straight on with the heel of your hand or a rubber mallet.
Good Luck!
Mike

Hi MIke:

Thanks for your prompt response. I will give that another try. I tried a little of that already but probably not with much conviction. Your suggestion makes sense to me. If I get this darn thing back on I will check back in. Your moral support alone is priceless. Thanks.

Hi again Mike:

I am wondering if I could glue that chrome handle on, using Gorilla Glue. One part of the handle end is slightly bent - if it is meant to be pushed back on, it won't go for sure. Metal on metal - the "knob" appears to be brass, and the handle chrome. I will think about this.
Am completely stymied at this point. Hair on fire.
