simplehuman Wall-Mount Paper Towel Holder


Product Information

To maximize space, our simplehuman Wall-Mount Paper Towel Holder can be mounted to a cabinet or a wall in any position. The quick-release knob detaches with a light squeeze of the buttons, making it a breeze to replace an empty roll. A tension spring prevents unraveling and creates slight resistance to allow pulling off one paper towel at a time.

  • Made from stainless steel and plastic
  • Includes an extra-strong mounting bracket
  • Can be mounted horizontally, vertically or diagonally



  • 13" x 3" x 5" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great paper towel holder It was easy to attach under my cabinet. I can tear off one towel at a time very easily. Saves on my paper towels and it looks very neat. Easy to change the roll too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy peasy This was simple to install and easy to use. I hate on-counter paper towel holders. When it is on the wall a paper towel holder is one-handedly accessible. It also looks neater. I had a different simplehuman design p. t. rack before. It lasted through 8 years of continual use, which I consider a good record. I expect this one to be as good. So far, it is on track to last as long as the last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like its look For all I know, the yellowed, brittle plastic paper towel holder that broke was original to my house that was built in 1996. In today's market I could have bought a similar model for $8. And I would have continued to dislike the look and performance. For roughly three times the price, I have a towel dispenser that is stylish, performs well and I expect it's the last one I'll ever purchase. Perhaps, if they invent a new model that not only dispenses the paper towel but actually cleans up the spill, I'd consider upgrading to a new version. Sadly, now that Geico is featuring a flying pig in their commercials, I can't even use that as way to gauge the likelihood...but you get the idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paper Towel Holder Ever Having purchased and used MANY different types of paper towel holders in my 39 years of married life (i.e., 39 years of "kitchen duty"), from stand alone, wall mount, under the cabinet mount, inside cabinet-door mount, etc., this product is absolutely THE BEST! I have it mounted under the cabinet nearest the kitchen sink, and it is handy, durable, steady (holds the roll steady when tearing off paper towels), and easy to remove the empty paper towel cardboard roll and replace with a new one. I recommend this type to everyone I know (and I recommend TCS to everyone, too)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Holder EVER!!! As the other reviewers have said - it's easy to mount, change rolls and use. I don't know how we have ever survived without it. I have also owned mine for several months now with only praise. If only there was a toilet paper holder just like it. The Simple Human company really knows how to reinvent "simple" everyday tools and make them work for the user!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great looking towel holder. Matches great with all my stainless steel. Its great for kitchens with little counter space that dont want to take up space with a towel holder. And it's really easy to install. Easy to change out the roll too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplehuman paper towel holder is wonderful! My husband has complained for years about every paper towel holder we have had. He is praising this one! The only problem was that the screws were too long. He had others and quickly installed it. It is easy to use and to replace the roll. Thank you for designing a better dispenser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far the best paper towel holder Sturdy, stylish, well made, mounts easily in any position. The tension device is simple and works perfectly to keep sufficient tension on the roll to prevent towels from flying off; can be adjusted if needed. Far superior to the cheap plastic holders, which I've bought a lot over the years. Easy to remove and add rolls. Have had this for several months now and not one problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it It keeps clutter off the counter. It has a nice, sleek design. Very well made. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This is a great paper towel holder. It was very easy to mount to the side of our kitchen cabinets (saving counter space) and as other reviewers note, it is easy to grab just one or two towels off at a time with one hand. No rolling a bunch off by accident that you don't need. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great in the verticle direction too This paper towel holder works well in the vertical direction. I was concerned that the spring mount would indent the paper towel roll and cause it to not roll properly. However, I have had no problems. And of course, this design is so beautiful. The quick release knob works really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely the Sports Car of the Paper Towel World Yes, it's pricey, considering you could furnish each room in a typical house with a cheap plastic ones for the same price. But if you've had to deal with poorly mounted holders tearing off the wall, or the hassle that some of their 'gimmicky' attachments, then you're ready for the real deal. SimpleHuman lives up to their name yet again bringing simple fixes and designs. This is a tough gripping paper towel holder. Sometimes almost too grippy. But you won't have to worry about it tearing off the wall, or having any difficulty getting just one sheet with one hand. Or if you're needing half a roll, just pop the top tension holder and pull as much as you need. This pop top and metal tension plate will keep this paper towel holder working for years - long after the plastic one has faded and turned brittle. If you want the best... this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terriffic Under-Shelf Towel Dispenser $25 for a paper towel dispenser? Yikes! But this is worth it. A paper towel dispenser is something you use every day, over and over. This is a quality piece of equipment that absolutely holds a roll of towels securely; lets you rip towels off the roll with one hand; mounts solidly because there are threewell placed mounting points (even to composite-board, i.e. Elfa, shelves); and holds "mega" rolls. The tensioning device is stupidly simple, but very effective; there is no ratcheting mechanism to break, nor plastic fins that will cause the roll to wobble. It will not allow you to pull the roll off the holder with that mighty tug so it falls into the sink ;-) and you don't have to unscrew an end to get a roll of towels onto the spindle. If you are mounting this on a gyp-board or plaster wall you will need wall anchors which are not included.

Can this be mounted using command strips rather than hardware screws?

Asked by: Jcdd
No, we do not recommend using Commend Adhesive to mount our Wall-Mount Paper Towel Holder. Some alternative solutions are recommended below.

ring spring

I just installed new paper towel holder. But the ring spring is not working as they advertised. So It doesn't prevents unraveling. What is wrong? I'm so disappointed because that was one of main reason to buy this holder. Please advise if there is anything I can do.
Asked by: melody1212
Push the retaining knob into the towel holder tube until it clicks in it's retaining groove. A "normal" size roll of paper towels will be pushed up against the spring steel on the other end of the paper towel tube. This will put tension on the roll of paper towels and that tension will allow the roll of paper towels to turn if pulled in a straight line perpendicular to the roll. Tear a sheet off by pulling the desired amount with a sideways motion. For further assistance, please contact us at 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246).

What is the depth (front to back) when mounted on a wall, with a roll of paper towels installed

Asked by: linwolfe
The product itself is 5" deep from front to back, but the overall depth with the paper towel roll would vary depending on the size of roll.

Does this have to be mounted with screws? Any other ways to do it that aren't so permanently damaging to the wall/cabint?
