How do I remove a towel ring?
I have bought a home that has towel rings and robe hooks in inconvenient places. Would like to move them. Most have a hidden screw in bottom but some I can't seem to find that screw or figure how to get the hooks off the wall. There is a hole that has threads, but that is it, no screw.

Most of the time they have an allen head screw not a standard screw. Use a flashlight in the hole. It may be way up there. You would need an allen wrench to unscrew it.
Sounds like the screws are indented....can you use a small screw driver and put it in the hole to turn the screw? Otherwise I don't know.
The builder used industrial glue, in tubes like caulking. You have to pry the holder off the wall with GooGone soaked in and a flat spreader or knife to get under the hook. Then you can sand the area and patch the paint, or do more reconstruction.
We once lived in a parsonage built by the former pastor. He, his wife, and their four children were each over six feet tall. Guess how high their hooks, towel bars, and cabinets were? At 5’2”, many things were out of my reach. I mostly hung other organizers from the tall places and I could reach the lowers. My kitchen and bathroom counters were covered with trays and boxes for holding all my stuff since I could barely reach the lowest shelves. I installed the self-stick hooks and hangers and removed them before we moved, because the next pastor’s wife who followed me was 6’! Make your house fit you, but perhaps consider the next owner.
