- 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)

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.

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