    Does it come with a hex key?


    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?
  • No it just came with screws and rawl plugs. Should it come apart if I had a hex key?

    You unscrew the hex headed screw with an allen key and the back plate comes out. You then screw that plate to the wall, making sure it is the right way up(!) and reattach the bracket to it using the same hex headed screw. The screw will almost certainly be at the bottom.

  • Amazing thanks so much. Will get a hex key tomorrow 
  • Hi,
    if hex screw not too tight you might be able to remove it with a small flat bladed screwdriver.
    Cover drain hole in tray to avoid losing hex screw.

    If you grip the plate with the screw and the part with the writting on it and twist in opposite directions they should unscrew apart.
    This will leave you with the base plate and wall plate which you will need to undo screw to seperate, once done attach base plate to wall with screws provided then reattach plates using the hex headed screw, as said above it would be best to instal with hex screw at bottom so water does not sit in it.
    Their are pictures of it on Amazon showing it disassembled which may help.

    Sound advice there, probably from experience!  :)
