Can I glue a towel rack to drywall?
The right glue for mounting a towel rack

Do towel racks need a stud?
Studs provide the best, most secure place to anchor a towel bar. But when there isn’t a stud where you want it to be, your towel–bar screws need a good anchor in the drywall. Forget about those cone-shaped plastic anchors often packaged with the bar; they pull out too easily.
How high do you put a towel bar in a bathroom?
Standard towel bars should be 42 to 48 inches above the floor. Hotel-style towel racks (which incorporate towel bars and a top-shelf and usually install above the toilet) should be at least 48 inches above the floor.
How do you get a towel bar off the wall without screws?
Use a Flat Tool
If a flat head screwdriver doesn’t work, something like this pry bar should do the trick. More than likely if it’s one piece, there’s a clip-like mechanism holding it onto the wall. Take your tool, and place it at the bottom of the part- preferably behind the part if you can. Then push upwards.
Can you spray paint towel bars?
Apply the paint to the primed towel bar with short, light strokes. Allow the spray paint to dry for five minutes. Let the second coat dry and apply a third coat of spray paint if necessary. Let the metal towel bar dry for 48 hours before mounting it to your bathroom wall.
Can you put a screw in spackle?
Tiny nail and screw holes are easiest: Use a putty knife to fill them with spackling or wall joint compound. The joint compound is only about a quarter or half an inch thick. Yes you can put a screw/anchor into a repaired hole, especially if the repair is a superficial one as you describe.
