Keep towels and bathrobes within arm’s reach by installing a robe hook in your bathroom. It's a simple DIY project that shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to tackle - even if you're a beginner!

Recommended Tools

  • Drill and Bits
  • Robe Hook
  • Level
  • Hammer
  • Mounting Hardware (bracket, anchors, screws)
  • Pencil

Step 1: Determine Placement

Step 1: Determine the placement of your robe hook and mark with a pencil.

Take the length of your robe or towels into account and determine where you’ll want to install the robe hook. Most robe hooks are installed about 65-70 inches off the ground.

If you’re installing more than one robe hook, place them 9 inches apart to account for how much space a towel or robe takes up. Learn more about bathroom hardware placement guidelines.

Step 2: Mark Drywall Anchor Holes

Step 2: Using the bracket, mark the drill holes for the drywall anchors.

Unless you’re installing the robe hook into a stud, you’ll need to use drywall anchors. Grab the mounting bracket and mark holes for both anchors.

Step 3: Drill Starter Holes and Install Drywall Anchors

Step 3: Drill starter holes and install anchors.

Choose a drill bit that’s slightly smaller than the anchors and drill the starter holes. Insert the anchors and gently tap them with a hammer until they’re flush.

Step 3.1: Install drywall anchors.

Step 4: Align & Install Mounting Bracket

Step 4: Align the mounting bracket with the pilot holes and secure with screws.

Line the mounting bracket up with the anchors and slowly drive the screws in. This will secure the mounting bracket to the wall.

Step 5: Attach & Secure Robe Hook to Mounting Bracket

Step 5: Attach and secure your robe hook to the mounting bracket.

Attach the robe hook to the mounting bracket, latching it on from the top. Secure it to the bracket using a hex key. Once it’s secured, you’re ready to hang your towels or robe in style.
