Attaching items to cabinet side

How do you permanently attach something to the side of a cabinet that will stand up to the occasional pulling? DW wants a mounted makeup mirror in the bathroom. Im not sure strong tape would work, and screws would work loose over time. The cabinet wood appears thin and hollow. Thanks!

If you have access to the back side, you can use small bolts with large washers. You can also glue a wood block back there to provide more surface to run small wood screws into.

If you do not have access to the back side, use toggle or molly bolts. There are a lot of products that have the ability to be inserted and then expand and hold against the inside of a wall. All the best.

Thanks, I do have access to the back side, so will go that route. Was thinking of using a metal back plate, but the wood approach sounds better.

The peel and stick adhesive hooks that are available now are very impressive in their holding power, I have a number of them in my coach that were installed by previous owners, some are even strong enough to hold a wet bath towel.

Whether and how you can mount something successfully depends on whether you have real wood or particle board with a vinyl or paper wood looking finish. Peel and stick hooks might just pull off that paper finish. If wood, getting behind with bracing is the best approach.

I used 3M Scotch 4910 VHB (very high bond) 2 sided tape to attach the mirror to the wall. At the top and bottom I used mirror clips for added support.
