The TOGGLER ALLIGATOR A10 flush-mount anchor provides a secure hold in solid concrete, brick, and stone, and is made in USA. Once inserted flush with the surface of a 3/8" drilled hole in a wall, ceiling, or floor, the anchor accepts a #10 to #18 size screw with a thread length at least equal to the thickness of the item being fastened plus 2". The fins on the anchor head grip the mounting material to prevent spinning when a screw is inserted. The polypropylene body resists corrosion and expands to fill and mold to a hole when a screw is inserted. This helps distribute the force evenly throughout the anchor's length to help prevent fracture of the mounting 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.
