Just bought this hose reel. Got any tips for mounting on the wall inside my residential garage? Typical drywall on 2x4 studs, 16" center-to-center. Weighs 22.75 lbs.

Stupid new over the range microwave I purchased said if the holes in the back plate didn't line up with the studs, to use the four drywall anchors enclosed. Drilled holes in that back plate and used fender washers bolted into the studs. Didn't want to see the microwave crashing into my glass topped range.

Yeah, I am hanging a bunch of stuff in my garage, ran two parallel 2 by 6's attached with lag bolts.
