Hello, my name is Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors. Today, we'll be discussing how to fix toilet paper holder. One of the biggest problems with toilet paper holders, is the screw pulls out, and it doesn't do you any good. This could be a result of someone applying pressure to it and pulling the screw out. Or having too short of a screw in there. To fix this, you're going to need a couple tools. A screwdriver, I prefer the adjustable screwdriver. That way, you have your Phillips and flat head on the same tool. Some wall anchors to place in the hole. Because when you put your screw into it, it expands the back side, creating a pressure against the wall. That pressure actually locks into place and gives it some pretty good durability. The first thing you want to do, is remove the broken toilet paper holder. Take your wall anchor and place them into the hole. Now, take the end of your screwdriver and give it a good tap. Making sure that it's firmly against the wall. Now, take the other side of the toilet paper holder, place your screw through it. And line the screw up with your wall anchor. Finger tighten it, so that way, it doesn't fall off. Take your screwdriver, and tighten it back, up to the wall. Now, you want to leave it just a little bit lose. That way, you have room to line up the bottom screw. Put your toilet paper back on, and you're ready to go. I'm Joshua with Lighty Contractors, and that's how you fix a toilet paper holder.
