best drywall mounts I've ever seen,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rack It Up Utensil Bar Wall Pot Rack, with 8 Hooks, Steel Gray (Kitchen)
These drywall mounts are amazing.
For background, normally when mounting something on a drywall you have to find studs (wooden beams used for support when building the wall) and drive your screw into this hard stud. Drywall mounts go into the drywall themselves and cling to the back of the drywall in the hollow space between the studs. (DIY experts, feel free to correct my construction terminology or descriptions.)
The drywall mounts provided with this rack are like none I've ever seen. You drill a 1/2" hole in the drywall, slide the mount through it via plastic guidebars, then pull it tight. The metal bracket nimbly flattens against the back side of the drywall and you cinch it tight via simply pulling firmly on the plastic guides, then snap off the guides and voila! you have a nice threaded plug into which to drive the provided screws with a provided hex driver (like the kind you get with Ikea furniture).
Note that most standard drill bit sets don't come with a 1/2" bit, so you may have to go buy one.
The diagrams are clear and the instructions are written in clear friendly English, with minimal jargon.
If you want to mount it on studs, you can't use the provided drywall mounts; you have to go buy some 1/4"x3" wood lag screws and drill in a passageway for them. Then, since the rack curves around, you need an angle driver to get those screws to go all the way in.
Once it's mounted it looks and works great. I love the fact that there are 8 hooks provided (4 straight, 4 at an angle) so you can hang your pots and pans how you please.
Only real problem is the brand name. How do you pronounce "Enclume?"

It is pronounced, " On-Cloom" the o's in Cloom are soft and hence sound like the o's in loon or moon. It is a french word meaning Anvil.
