Over time, the screws and brackets securing a toilet paper holder can loosen or become disconnected entirely. This guide will walk you through the steps of replacing a broken or loose toilet paper holder.

  1. Unscrew the four screws of the original broken holder. You may want to wear gloves. If there is damage to the wall behind the old holder, check out the iFixit guide for repairing a hole in drywall.

  2. Measuring the area where you want your new holder to go, mark two lines 6.8" apart. Measure an inch and a third (1 and 1/3") above the marks and mark these new spots where your screws will go. While marking where you want to place the new holder, use a leveling tool to make sure that the toilet paper will be sitting flat.

I don’t like the spring loaded holders. When we moved into our new house two years ago, One of the spring loaded holders was too far apart. Another was two close so roll would not rotate. The other two were ok. I replaced 3 of the 4 with the single arm holder. No need to fiddle with spring loaded holders. Slip on and slip off. Did the same at our previous house. I now have 3 spring loaded holders that I will donate or throw away.
