How do you reattach a towel rack to the wall?

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.
How do you remove a ceramic towel rack from drywall?
Place a chisel in the space between the holders and the wall that you created with the grout saw. Tap the chisel with a hammer and move it around all sides of the ceramic towel rack holder. This may separate the holder from the wall.
How do you remove a ceramic towel bar from a wall?
How to Do It:
- Score around the edges of the ceramic bar mount with the X-Acto knife.
- Next, take your chisel and hammer and carefully tap around the ceramic bar mount that you have scored. I used the very corner of the chisel to tap it.
- When it is off, you can sand the wall opening to make it flat.
How big of a hole can you spackle?
Use spackle to repair holes less than 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. Spackle can be used to repair holes up to the size of your hand. You will have to use a support like mesh or wire to repair holes larger than 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. Buy light spackle at the local hardware store.
Can you reuse a drywall hole?
It depends on what it’s filled with, but regular drywall filler probably won’t be as strong. Then patch it with the larger drywall piece you cut out (if you cut it out carefully). Now your “new” drilled hole will be just as strong as the wood behind it is held, probably 4x a single screw in drywall.
How do you strengthen drywall?
The best way to reinforce a drywall patch is to use backing boards to make the patch as strong as the drywall itself.
- Cut a piece of drywall to fit over the hole.
- Place the drywall patch over the hole and trace the outline with a pencil.
- Cut out the tracing with a keyhole saw or a drywall saw.
