Product Description

The TOGGLER ALLIGATOR AF8 flanged anchor provides a secure hold in solid and hollow concrete, brick, stone, and drywall, and is made in USA. Once inserted into a 5/16" drilled hole in a wall, ceiling, or floor, the anchor accepts a #8 to #14 size screw with a thread length at least equal to the thickness of the item being fastened plus 1-13/16". The anchor head is flanged for additional stability compared to a flush-mount head when installing into hollow material and has fins that grip the mounting material to prevent spinning when a screw is inserted. When installed within a solid material, the corrosion-resistant polypropylene body expands and elongates to fill and mold to the hole. This helps distribute the force evenly throughout its length to help prevent wall fracture. When installed within a hollow material or a solid material with unexpected cavities, the anchor's jaws open as a screw is inserted, locking the anchor and screw within the material.

Anchors provide reinforcement to fasteners installed in materials that are considered brittle or have insufficient hold such as drywall, concrete, brick, and stone. Anchors provide support through methods such as expansion from within or behind the substrate, or insertion of adhesive compounds into drilled holes.

These aren't your Grand-Dad's screw anchors! The design has been optimized so that these anchors work in EITHER solid- or hollow-wall applications and one size of anchor can be used over a wider range of screw sizes, from a little #8 to a mighty #14. Unlike old-fashioned anchors, the grip INCREASES as the screw size is increased, so for MAXIMUM holding power use a #14 screw.

These anchors have a flange on them, but you can get them without a flange if that is what you need. Just order the A8 anchors.

These were the recommended wall anchors for some high-end wall shelves I needed to install, and I had never installed wall shelves before. A box of these, a box of the Toggler AF6, a hand drill with the bit sizes specified on the Toggler package, a level, and you...you can hang pretty much anything. Turns out it's not that hard...you just have to read the specifications, figure out which anchor you need, drill some holes, and tap-tap the anchor in.

The best solid wall anchors ever made! I've been using these for about twenty years and believe me when I tell you, nothing else comes close. Works with many size screws. I prefer either #8 or #10 pan head sheet metal screws, 1 1/2 to 2". Not the best bet for hollow walls however. For those applications use Toggler Drywall Anchors.

Hands down best plastic anchors available. I've been using these for about 10 years, tried others when I was no longer able to find them locally. Am glad Amazon carries them, stacked up few boxes of each size because I know their value. Highly Recommended.
