I have the pictured towel bar that I would like to remove for painting. I am stumped on how to remove it from the wall.
I've inspected for tension screws and found none. I tried to slide it upwards along the wall using my hands to no avail. I've also attempted all manor of twisting, the bar doesn't telescope to allow for removal or anything like that.
I'm left wondering if there's a special removal tool? Or maybe tap it harder upwards with a hammer?
Any advice on removing this is welcome.
Edited to add an image of the backside of this towel bar. Tapping upwards from the bottom with a rubber mallet did the trick.
