Tools and materials
In order to remove a toilet paper holder, you will need the following items:
- A screwdriver
- A hammer
- A pair of pliers
- An old toothbrush (or a similar brush)
- First, remove the screws that hold the toilet paper holder in place. If your holder is glued on, you may need to use a putty knife to pry it off.
- Next, use sandpaper or a wire brush to remove any rust from the holder.
- If the toilet paper holder is made of metal, you may want to paint it before reinstalling it.
- Finally, screw the toilet paper holder back into place and replace the roll of toilet paper.
If your toilet paper holder is mounted on the wall, you may need to remove it for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you’re redecorating and want to replace it with a new style.
Or maybe it’s become loose and needs to be repaired or replaced. Regardless of the reason, removing a toilet paper holder from the wall is a relatively easy task that most people can do without having to call a professional.
Here are a few tips on how to remove a toilet paper holder from the wall:
- Start by taking off the bracket that holds the toilet paper holder in place. There are typically two screws that attach the bracket to the wall. Use a screwdriver to remove these screws.
- Once the screws are removed, you should be able to simply pull the toilet paper holder off of the wall.
- If the toilet paper holder is mounted with adhesive, you may need to use a putty knife or other tool to pry it off of the wall. Be careful not to damage the finish on your walls when doing this.
- Once you have removed the toilet paper holder, clean up any adhesive that is left behind on the wall with rubbing alcohol or another suitable solvent.
Toilet paper holders are one of those objects that seem to be constantly in need of adjusting or outright replacement. Over time, the Holder can become loose, resulting in wonky paper placement or, worse, completely falling off the wall. If your toilet paper holder has become loose and needs to be tightened, follow these steps.
First, identify the problem areas. Is the entire holder loose, or just certain screws? If it’s just certain screws, tighten them using a screwdriver. If the entire holder is loose, you may need to remove it from the wall and start over.
To remove the holder from the wall, start by unscrewing any screws that are holding it in place. Once all screws have been removed, gently pull the holder away from the wall. If it doesn’t come off easily, check for any nails or other fasteners that may be holding it in place.
Once the holder is removed from the wall, inspect it for damage. If any pieces are broken or missing, you’ll need to buy a new one. If everything looks good, reattach it to the wall using screws (and nails if necessary). Make sure to tighten all screws securely so that the holder doesn’t become loose again.
Q: How do I remove a toilet paper holder?
A: Most toilet paper holders can be removed by unscrewing the mounting screws and pulling the unit away from the wall. If your holder is mounted with wall anchors, you may need to remove the anchors before you can remove the holder.
There are many different types of toilet paper holders, and each type has its own method of removal. The most common type of toilet paper holder is the spring-loaded type.

Another common type of toilet paper holder is the screw-mounted type. To remove this type of holder, unscrew the mounting screws with a Phillips head screwdriver, and then pull the holder away from the wall.
