How Do You Tighten A Toilet Paper Holder?


toilet paper holder repairFixing a loose toilet paper holder is pretty easy. They have small arms that stick out of the wall which require small tools.

The toilet paper holders arms are held to the wall with small brackets. In order for the toilet paper holders to be tight, these brackets must be tight. But before you go after the brackets, use a small screwdriver and try to tighten the arm against the bracket. Look under the arm and you will see a tiny hole. Use a small standard screwdriver and turn the screw clockwise. If you are lucky, the screw will push against the bracket and the arm will tighten up. Problem solved…unless it is still loose.

If the arm is still loose, loosen the screw and remove the arm. Now you can see the bracket. You can try tightening the screw that holds this bracket (doubtful this will work), add an additional screw in the bracket, or use a molly bolt or an EZ anchor to hold it in place. Once you have the bracket secured, you can slip the arm over the bracket and tighten the screw until snug. Slide the TP onto the spool and place the spool into the recesses in each arm.
