I need to hang a box frame 71/2 Lbs on the towel bar; can this towel bar hold the weight?
Just made a painting on a masonite frame 24X 30 X 2"; it weighs 71/2 pounds; I am thinking that it would rest nicely on this towel bar. Any better siggestion?
The side of the "painting box" are made of 5/8" plywood; I'd be afraid to drill in there as it might split, The painting is continued on all four sides.

Your painting sounds interesting, but you would not be happy with this arrangement over the years. First of all I would not use any towel bar for that purpose. The bar itself is aluminum and over time this might sag a bit (warp ) . There surely are at Home Depot hang-on-the-wall fasteners that you can use on your box frame.

Your painting sounds interesting, but you would not be happy with this arrangement over the years. First of all I would not use any towel bar for that purpose. The bar itself is aluminum and over time this might sag a bit (warp ) . There surely are at Home Depot hang-on-the-wall fasteners that you can use on your box frame. If your home is one near truck routes or airports it is not stable enough to keep it up.
On the towel bar, the underbracket that is attached directly to the wall or door may not sustain a steady and excessive weight, nor is it designed to do so. It is never a good idea to repurpose something like this.
If you buy this type of bar use it for which it is designed and you will enjoy it for many years.
Get the hangers for your box frame and enjoy the confidence of having something properly installed
also for many years. . Homes older than
65 or so years, get heavy enough wall anchors for your job. Newer homes, get yourself a stud-finder.
Drywall alone will not take that kind of load. Good luck!

Answer: 
yes. mark your holes, use self tapping screws (short but coarse-thread) if on the door.
If on a wall that is drywall, make sure you use a stud-finder to locate the studs and use 1-1/2 or 2
inch self-tapping screws. Drywall alone will not take the occasional tugging it will sustain from a bunched up towel. stud-finders can be found at most hardware stores and all home depots. Get a strictly mechanical

Get a strictly mechanical (i.e. magnet) one as you will not need this on a daily basis and the other style may have batteries that can leak if only used once and then stored for 10 years until you change your bathroom over the next time.

Answer: 
Yes, but use a good quality blade in your hacksaw, and get help holding while you saw: to keep the cut
square and don't put in a vise to hold. This is an aluminum bar and you can easily mar or dent it.
Take your time with it.
Remember: measure twice, cut once. Reassemble then to get correct
measurements for the under brackets. Good luck!

Answer: 
Absolutely. The bar can be easily scratched, so wrap a towel around it if you put the bar in a vice to cut it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good for the price Very inexpensive product, but works just fine. fits nicely behind my bathroom door which is why I bought them as the depth of them was not as long as some of the others. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Decorative towel rod We use this towel rod for decorative purposes over the toilet. It's a shorter towel rod so it is perfect for decorative use. The only instructions available was on the box. My husband installed this and did fairly well but I think that some will have difficulties installing this since there is little instructions provided.
