STEP 1: Determine Towel Ring Placement
Towel rings are often installed next to or near a sink, approximately 50 to 52 inches from the ground or 20 inches above the counter. When positioning the mounting bracket over the chosen installation location, use a tiny level to ensure that it remains straight. If there isn't a stud, you'll have to drill and insert wall anchors.
|TIP: If your bathroom is intended for children, consider lowering the towel ring around 36 inches from the ground, unless you choose to have them use a step stool.|
STEP 2: Mark Your Drill Holes
Use the mounting bracket as a guide to mark the areas you’ll drill. If you aren’t installing the towel ring into a stud, you’ll need to use drywall anchors. These plastic anchors are generally includes in bath accessory sets along with the appropriate screws.

STEP 3: Drill Anchor Holes And Install Drywall Anchors (If You're Installing Into A Studs, Skip This Step)
After you've leveled the brackets and marked the locations, it's time to pre-drill the anchor holes. Use a drill bit that is just wide and deep enough to fit the anchors. Insert your drywall anchors into the holes after drilling and softly tap them into place with a small hammer. The anchors will sit flush with the wall and have a snug fit.
STEP 4: Install Mounting Bracket
Use the provided screws to secure the mounting bracket to the wall after aligning it with the anchors.
STEP 5: Attach The Towel Ring To The Mounting Bracket And Secure It.
From the top, latch the towel ring onto the mounting bracket. The notches on the inside of the ring's base should be centered. Take one last check before securing the towel ring to make sure it's level. Tighten the set screw on the towel ring with the allen key or a tiny screwdriver.
