In both small and large bathrooms, practical storage space is unfortunately often rare in the required places. Those who do not want to or are not allowed to drill are well advised to use special bathroom accessories for gluing!
In addition to wet towels and washcloths, bathrobes, shampoo and shower gel need suitable storage options. Holders and baskets that are mounted directly on the wall are therefore space-saving and practical. These bathroom accessories are easy to assemble and can be removed without leaving any residue if necessary.
Drilling tiles in rental apartments

Then you better play it safe and attach your bathroom accessories without drilling.
Clean the surface
The surface must be free of dust, grease, lime and cleaning agents. It is best to clean the surface with a clean, soft cloth and alcohol or silicone-free glass cleaner. Do not use bathroom cleaners, as these contain non-stick substances and thus impair the adhesive effect. Then wipe with the enclosed cleaning cloth.
Fasten the adapter ring
Take the adapter ring out of the package and remove the foil from the adhesive surface on the back. Then place it in the desired location and press firmly against the tile. Now you open the tube with the tube wrench and insert the opening into the larger hole in the adapter ring. Use the key to push glue in until some glue comes out of the smaller opening in the adapter. This shows that the back of the adapter is completely filled with adhesive, creating a secure connection with the tile surface.
Put on the bath holder
Now you have to wait: the glue has to harden for twelve hours. Do not touch the adapter during this time and do not under any circumstances check whether it is already tight. After the waiting time you put the respective bath holder, e.g. For example, simply place a towel rail on the adapter and tighten the screw with an Allen key.
In the event of a move or if you want to mount the holder in another location, you can easily remove it. First unscrew the bathroom accessory from the adapter. Then you place a pipe wrench on the adapter ring and simply twist it carefully clockwise from the wall. You can carefully scrape off any glue residue with a thin spatula or scraper. With a new adapter, you can reuse the bathroom accessory in a different place or in a new apartment.
