How To Install Toilet Paper Holder & Phone Shelf


Hi, and welcome to Neater Nest – where you
can find clever products for around the home to make life easier, safer and more organized. Today we are going to show you how to install
our toilet paper holder and phone shelf. Here are the tools we recommend to make this
installation as smooth and simple as possible: a pencil, screwdriver, drill, quarter inch
drill bit or smaller, stud finder, tape measure and a level. Start by removing the old toilet paper holder. It’s best if you can locate a stud to screw
into for your first hole. But it’s okay if your studs do not line
up with where you want to place the shelf. In our case, spacing is too far apart, so
we’ll be using bolt drywall anchors. If you are unsure how high to mount your shelf,
we recommend placing it about 28 inches off the floor. For our first hole, we are going to reuse
one from our old holder. If that doesn’t work for you, hold your
shelf against the wall and use your pencil to mark your first hole. Draw hole no larger than a quarter inch on
your mark. Insert a drywall anchor; it should fit very
snug. Using the drill, screw the shelf onto the
wall. We found the bit extension helpful as our
shelf has very little clearance underneath. Use a hand screwdriver to snug up the screw. Level out the shelf and mark your second hole
with the pencil. Loosen the shelf just a bit so that it can
swing out on your way. Be careful not to scratch the wall. Drill your second hole. Insert the drywall anchor. Screw the shelf to the wall and tighten by
hand until the shelf is secure. But be careful not to over tighten as it could
strip out the drywall anchor. Install any decorative screw caps that were
included. They may fit snug due to the low clearance
under the shelf. Our modern style holders have a three-part
screw attachment. There is a screw, a threaded washer and a
screw cap. Sometimes the washer gets stuck inside the
cap during packaging. You should unscrew it with your finger or
a pencil eraser. Place the screw through the washer and attach
the holder arm. With our modern-style holders, the arm installs
from the top. Our vintage designs screw from the bottom. Both are reversible and can be installed in
either direction to suit your needs. Be sure that the arm is securely fastened
and would not come loose. Finish it off with the screw cap. We hope that you found this video helpful
and that you enjoy your new toilet paper holder and phone shelf.
