The TOGGLER Toggle TB residential drywall anchor provides a firm hold in 3/8"- to 1/2"-thick drywall, includes #8 x 1-1/2" screws, and is made in USA. The anchor is made from polypropylene that resists corrosion, is nonconductive for anchoring electrical components, and is low-friction to facilitate screw installation. The anchor hammers into a 5/16" drilled hole until flush with the mounting material's surface. Before the screw can be inserted into the anchor to create a secure hold, the included key is used to open the anchor's wings behind the material. The fins on the anchor head grip the mounting material to prevent spinning when a screw is inserted, and the anchor will stay in place if the fastener is removed, facilitating fixture and screw changes. If using screws other than those supplied, the anchor accepts #6 to #14 size screws with a minimum thread length of 1-1/4". The Toggle TB anchor meets Federal Specification FF-B-588-D for Type IV anchors.

Anchors provide reinforcement to a fastener that would otherwise have insufficient hold in substrates such as concrete, brick, stone, drywall, or other materials for a particular application. The fastener may be included with or integrated into the anchor itself, or it may be sold separately. Anchors provide support through various methods, including expansion from within or behind the substrate or even adhesive compounds.
