Hey there!

On this guide, I will show you how to remove a broken towel hook on drywall, patch the hole, and install a new one!

Before you start, make sure you have the required tools and be careful around the screwdriver!

This guide will not take long, only around 10-15 minutes, but you’ll have to come back to this a few hours after you’re done installing the new hook to clean up the old hole.

Happy Fixing!
