BigTJohn, that is why mine is mounted to the top of the door using a couple of small wood screws. The screws basically keep the rack in the correct position on the door and the wieght is on the top of the door.

Funny- I never thought of screwing them into place. Good idea!

Bought the coat hangers from Lowes and the over the door hanger from any retail store (bed bath beyond/ Home Depot/Loews/Walmart,etc)... used flat head wood screws to anchor on top of bathroom door and smaller screws with hex nut to attach coat hangers to pre drilled holes in towel holder....very easy and extremely effective!

I went to the craft store and bought sticky back felt and put it on mine and the door doesn't get rubbed any more

We did a similar mod using this rack from the Container Store:

Just as you did, we added a couple of screws into the top of door and some sticky pads where it hits the door.

@JJnLilly-I know what you mean. My otdh is screwed in as well. The door slabs slipped for unknown reasons, probably too warm and/or a little lax on quality control.
