This is a good option if you pre drive the screw hole. If you don't, you will be pushing pretty hard against the string to get the screw started and the piece behind the wall will have a tendency to spin and cleaning the glue off. The static method below works.

I don't have a Berkshire but I do have hollow walls and used these anchors to secure the towel bar and toliet paper holder to my hollow walls. The double towel bar was 24" but had to cut it down to fit on the wall....Easy mod and very secure.

Used some liquid nail ( good amount ) then pushed it into the hole, hanging on to the string for good measure. Lined it up in place and held pressure with the screw for a couple of minutes and pretty much tacked up and stayed there. Waited overnight to let adhesive dry before finishing.

Also had these come with the bars I bought. I just didn't trust them with the paneling being barely 1/8". But I saved them !!

First, I would have drilled a hole in the backer just large enough to thread the string through, threaded the string, then tied a large knot behind the backer. The problem with trying to use a outer block with a screw to hold it is preventing the backer from spinning and losing the bonding glue. Ref to my above post that has worked for me. The stick and wedges are statics.I learned this trick when trying to patch larger holes in drywall.

Looks good Joe. Couple of other thing to consider. I put two towel hooks in the back bath. One on the narrow section of wall between the shower and closet it's real Handy. Another shower hook at the right hand of the closet on the section that is about 4 inches wide.
