Product Features

  • Anchor installs into hollow and solid materials such as concrete, brick, stone, and drywall to securely hold a load and has a flanged head for additional stability when installing into hollow material
  • Corrosion-resistant polypropylene body expands and elongates within a solid substrate to distribute force evenly and opens its jaws to lock position within a hollow substrate when a screw is inserted
  • Made in USA, and works with #6 to #12 screw sizes (sold separately)
  • Ultimate tensile strength is 69 lb. in 1/2" drywall and 675 lb. in 3,500 psi concrete with a #10 sheet metal screw
  • Use one-fourth or less of listed maximum values for safe working loads (as required by local regulations)

Product Description

The TOGGLER ALLIGATOR AF6 flanged anchor provides a secure hold in solid and hollow concrete, brick, stone, and drywall, and is made in USA. Once inserted into a 1/4" drilled hole in a wall, ceiling, or floor, the anchor accepts a #6 to #12 size screw with a thread length at least equal to the thickness of the item being fastened plus 1-3/8". 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 anchors are noticeably better than anything else out there, especially when used in cement, stucco, or other masonry. They also do well in wallboard (so long as it isn't so old that it tends to crumble easily). It seems to me that these provide significantly stronger anchoring than comparably sized plastic anchors of other designs. In addition, because the outer surface is smooth rather than ribbed (as some anchors are) they are very easy to insert into the hole. There are ribs just below the top flange that help prevent the anchor from turning when the screw is being driven in.

Of the three main sizes available (AF5, AF6, and AF8) I have found the AF6 most useful in general applications, generally with a #10 sheet metal screw. Although I carry other styles of anchor with me, it is mostly out of habit -- I almost always turn to these. On rare occasions when the material being drilled opens up too much when drilling for the AF6, it is easy to slip in an AF8 instead, probably using a #12 screw in that case. Thus, I carry both sizes in my kit. (I have a box of AF5 anchors as well, but as far as I can recall I have never used them.)

I have used these to mount all manner of brackets to walls, to mount metal halide canopy and wall-mounting lamps to stucco ceilings and brick walls, to affix handicap parking signs to concrete block walls, and on and on. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Of course, common sense must be used when choosing any type of wall anchor. In hollow wall applications, sometimes it may be more appropriate to use a "molly" style metal anchor, or a toggle bolt. (This same company makes some outstanding toggle bolts, available primarily at Lowe's, that are much easier to use than regular toggle bolts.) But when a plastic anchor is appropriate, this is almost always the best choice.

these are great- i have liver in a brick house for >20 years. A solid brick house, with plaster applied to the inner layer of brick, with poured concrete foundation wall. If I need to hang any but the lightest things, I am drilling into masonry. I have attached lots of things to masonry, and have tried a lot of varies of fasteners, some have been disasters, some a lot of work. With a Makita 18 V cordless hammer drill and a sharp carbide bit, these WORK- hold tight, don't work loose over time. If you want it to stay up, get these

Buy them. I was buying these in smaller quantities for too long before getting this box. Sure, you don't need to be able to hang hundreds of pounds on my wall mounts... but these will hold anything! I like to over-engineer my projects when possible. These things help. PROS: If you need a shorter anchor just nip it to length with pliers, 1/4" holes are a no-brainer with a 1/4" drill bit, they cannot break off inside the hole, they are easily removed with a pair of pliers. CONS: They leave a 1/4" hold if you pull them out. But it's worth it, it's a clean hole that's easily patchable.

I've gone through 100s of these in the past couple of years. Local HD used to carry these but they no longer do so I struggled with different product for a year. Found them on A-to-Z and bought them instantly. Just came back to buy more.

These are the ULTIMATE anchor for mounting anything to a wall; drywall or concrete. Drill the hole, push it in, drive the screw; JOB DONE!

I highly recommend these as well as SNAPTOGGLE (also available at AMAZON) for suspended ceiling application (same brand).

BTW #6 is the most universal size.

Terrific design, the spreading "alligator" jaws lock the screw into place amazingly well. I've only used them in drywall, but knowing how the design works I'd imagine it works equally as good in concrete. I've used other anchors before, and by virtue of construction these are the best. Made in the USA is just an added bonus.

As far as plastic drop-in anchors go, this is the best one.

Installs cleanly, stays flush with the surface, accepts wide range of screws and cannot be overdriven.
It's also paintable to certain extent - abrade the outer flange lightly so primer will stick better.

Must have used hundreds of these so far - including through marble tiles in the bathroom to anchor shower door frames and fixtures (squeeze some clear silicone into the hole before inserting anchor and wipe the excess after it's in).

I'm no expert, but these are the best I've used. They also come in a collarless version, which don't always work as well, specifically on sheet walls, where they tend to get pushed in.

These anchors really hold. They are the only ones I buy now. A bit more expensive than traditional plastic anchors, but totally worth it.

Great anchoring system. Works well in block and concrete structure and holds securely. Used for attaching threshold to concrete floor, and some wooden framing to block walls. I do like this anchor system.
