There are many types of hollow wall anchors available. I have had success with this style:
I've used them to help hang towel racks that have held up wet bath towels and part of a grab rail that didn't reach to a stud.
Thanks for taking time to help me. Merry Christmas
Hi Anne! There are many types of anchors you can use for this project. Check out these sites for information.
Thanks Betty for your help
Use a stud finder to make sure you hang in a wall stud.
Anne..Mark sure you are on a 2 x 4 stud is the best way.
Hi Anne: Be sure that you know that no matter what type of wall anchors you use, the drywall, itself, can only hold so much weight before it collapses. The best thing to do is to find a couple of studs. You can do this by using a stud finder, or looking closely at the wall and seeing if there are any popped nails. If you do, then you can be pretty sure that they are on the centre of the stud, and that's what you want. Then, use a hanger that is as long as the drywall is thick, and another 1/2 inch or more in length. I would think that a hanger that is at least 2" long would work. You want to be sure you are in the centre of the stud and not on an edge. as that won't be secure. If you use a stud finder, it will find the nail that is in the centre of the stud. Good luck.
