No local Home Depot had these proper

to go to a specialty fastener shop
24 miles from my home.
The screws were only 20 cents each, & they
had a $1 minimum order, so I got 5 screws.
These screws fit perfectly.
I spent $7 for gas, round trip 48 miles.
Home Depot sent me a $10 gift card
for my effort.
Good job Home Depot, they did right by me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ILOVETOOLS Excellent product and works as intended
I used this clamp with the Franklin Brass Recessed Paper Holder (9097SN). Because Home Depot's website is not very clear on this subject, you MUST have this clamp in order to perform a standard drywall installation of a recessed paper holder. The clamp is placed on the backside of the hole you will cut in the drywall, and is drawn back against the drywall as the screws in the holder are tightened. This makes for an extremely rigid and sturdy installation of the paper holder.

Attaches easily with the screws supplied by the actual recessed tissue holder. I agree with those reviewers who said this SHOULD be a part of the recessed tissue holder package. One should not have to order this seperately. Once I ordered it, despite there being no instrucitons, I found that it easily fits the hole cut for the tissue holder. (PS, measure the back of the tissue holder as the instructions give a measurement that is too large and may weaken the ability of this clamp to hold) You can attach it to the tissue holder with the screws BEFORE you insert this back piece into the wall and then tighten down the screws. A simple but critical piece that works very well. No cusswords needed.

The easiest thing I've ever used. Follow the instructions and cut the hole as directed and slide it in on an angle. Then just tighten the screws on your recessed unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeOwner01 Glad I read the reviews/complaints & ordered it.
I was glad I read the complaints in the reviews for the Franklin Brass Double Post Toilet Paper Holder in Bright Stainless Steel, as it wasn't clear to me that you also needed this part.
I had contractors do the work, but I think it was easy enough for them to install. The paper holder fits in the wall securely & works fine, so I assume this part is working as advertised.
You can just barely see the holder on the wall to the right under the window.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonJohnSilvers Necessary Evil
This part is a necessary evil as it wasn't included with the paper holder I purchased and it was for a new installation. I'm thankful to have learned it wasn't included before I purchased the paper holder. I am also thankful to have learned the part number so I could find it in the first place.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Southbayguy Works but wrong screws
The product is tapped for metric mounting screws, but is supplied with 3 pairs of sheet metal screws. (Stainless, white, and brass...) The screws must be at least 2" long (50mm) but Home Depot only carries 25 mm long screws so I had to go elsewhere. The consumer is forced to chase around for screws... They charged enough for this simple bracket to have the correct screws. How Depot should force the manufacture to provide the correct fasteners in the kit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OldMusic1 Instructions incorrect
Instructions specify using machine screws. No machine screws in package. After several email and phone calls to Franklin Brass someone contacted engineering and told me that the instructions were incorrect..
The part I received was used and incorrectly repackaged.
This part should be used with 9097SN
