The material of the towel rack is quite diverse. The common ones are space aluminum, stainless steel, brass, zinc alloy, etc. Because they are all made of metal, the installation method is basically the same.
The first step: positioning. Before installing the towel rack in the bathroom, determine the installation location. If there is a bathtub in the bathroom, you can usually install the towel rack directly on the wall above the bathtub, which is convenient for bath towels and other toiletries. If there is no bathtub in the bathroom, the towel rack can be installed next to the shower. After identifying the location, it should be identified to facilitate the next step.
The second step: drilling. Once the installation location is determined, the drill can be used to drill holes in the identified location. When drilling, the base of the towel rack can be placed on the wall to determine the number of holes and the distance between the holes to avoid leakage. Most of the towel holders have four mounting holes on the base, so you need to drill the corresponding four holes on the wall with an electric drill.
The third step: installation. The towel rack is fixed by the expansion screw, so it is necessary to first drive the expansion tube into the drilled hole and fix it. Then place the base of the towel rack on the wall, keep the mounting hole on the base corresponding to the wall hole, and fix it with the expansion screw. Finally, it is necessary to put the hanging parts of the towel rack on the base, and fix them by using the matching screws one by one.

2, Pay attention to the degree of damage to the wall. The installation of the bathroom accessories are generally completed after the tile is laid, but the wall towel must be drilled when installing the towel rack, so it is inevitable to cause a certain degree of damage to the wall tile. In order to ensure the appearance, it is necessary to drill. Minimize damage. Since the direct use of ordinary drill holes can easily lead to cracks in the wall tiles, it is best to use a glass drill bit to drill holes in the surface of the wall tiles, and then use the ordinary drill bit to continue the cement wall inside the wall surface. Drilling holes can avoid problems such as cracks in wall tiles.

Also tighten the screws with the base to avoid looseness. In addition, it is best to check the quality of the head screws attached to each fixed point on the base before installation. In order to ensure that the connection is tight and the fixing is firm, the screws of the head screws must not have the problem of bad teeth or sliding teeth.
4, Pay attention to the installation skills. When installing the base of the towel stand, it is best not to tighten the expansion screw of one of the mounting holes first to avoid the problem of tilting during installation. In general, you can use the expansion screws to fix the base to the wall through all the mounting holes, and then cycle all the screws in turn.
