towel rack

Hi, one side of my bathroom towel rack is very loose and is falling off the wall. Can you suggest how to better fasten it to the wall? Do I need to tighten the screw on the bottom of the rack? What type of screwdriver do I need for this? Thank you

Is the chrome fixture just loose or is the whole bracket loose? Get a small Allen head wrench (of the correct size) and remove or loosen the screw. This will allow you to remove the chrome piece. Then you will know if the bracket is also loose.
If it is not, then just reattaching the fixture and tighten the Allen head screw.
If the bracket is loose, then you need to re-install the bracket with a molly bolt of some sort. And that will depend on how bad the bracket is unattached or falling out of the wall.

I would suspect the set screw holding the chrome piece is loose and tighten that first. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you remove that piece and fix the bracket attachment to the wall.
