Measuring the area where you want your new holder to go, mark two lines 6.8" apart. Measure an inch and a third (1 and 1/3") above the marks and mark these new spots where your screws will go. While marking where you want to place the new holder, use a leveling tool to make sure that the toilet paper will be sitting flat.

Place the new screw inside the new bracket and line up the mark with the base of the screw. Make sure that the indentation for the toilet paper holder is facing in. Repeat this for the top and bottom screws on both the left and right bracket bases (4 times total).
