How to fasten the towel bar?


My towel bar almost fell to the floor when I put on a towel. It turns out that the right anchor is loose (from the wall). See attached photos showing what the towel bar and the anchors look like.

How can I fasten the anchor to the wall?

How to fasten the towel bar?


It needed to be attached to the studs, not just the drywall.
If you tried using those cheap plastic anchors they come with there useless.
Now your stuck with removing it and using large toggle bolts.

I just bought the condo and moved in. I want to replace the cheap towel bars.

Could you explain how I can remove the towel bar with the anchors?

I found the tiny screws. Once I took them out, the brackets and the bar were removed. Thanks for the advice!
