I was putting up spice racks in the kitchen and I seem to be off by a half cm on one side with the screws. As a result, they're just a touch too close together and I cant get the screws to line up with the keyhole slots on the back of the rack.

Right now, I'm evaluating my options and it looks like I'll have to remount it up or down a bit… ideally as close to the original holes as possible or else the height becomes an issue. In an ideal world, I'd be able to patch the hole and redrill it a half cm over so that the racks can be mounted at the height I had originally wanted. I've never patched drywall before so I don't know how sturdy it would be if I did that. The rack itself is small. Won't be more than maybe 2 or 3 pounds fully loaded (including the weight of the rackJ)

This is the keyhole slot style I'm working with. What I have is metal, so I can't easily cut it wider to compensate for the hole.
