Installing Towel Bars on Bathroom Door

New 2906WS, want to install towel bars on sliding door. Looking for ideas on fastening the bars to door, since most of the door is hollow. I know a lot of you have done this so appreciate your suggestions.

Jim

Have not installed on a hollow door, but if I did I would use hollow door anchors.

We used the 3M 'command strips' and they have worked great so far (over a year).

Best part is I can remove the hooks and not worry about filling a couple of holes.

Depends what type of mounting base is on your towel rack. You may have to mount the base plate on a host and then mount the host with Command pads! Yes your/our hollow core doors have "Honeycomb cardboard sandwiched" between the faces! Youroo!!

Use an anchor called a hollow door molly. Home depot or Loews do not carry them in my area. Go to a hardware store and a knowlegable sales person (meaning the old guy standing in the back) should be able to help you find them and explain how to install them.

If possible, get the towel/coat hooks that go over the top of the door. They can be screwed down to the top of the door

I just screwed the brackets into the door in my last two units. The screws alone hold just fine.

You can also add "auto tape" behind the mount. Some call it "molding tape."

"super strong" is 3M's description
