The TOGGLER SNAPTOGGLE BA toggle anchor provides a secure hold from within various hollow materials 3/8" to 3-5/8" thick including gypsum board, drywall, and concrete block, and is made in USA. The anchor requires a 3/16"-24 UNC-threaded metal bolt with a minimum length equal to the thickness of the item being fastened and the thickness of the mounting material plus 1/2". The anchor channel will not rotate when installing the bolt, whether installing by hand or with a screw gun, and will stay in place if the bolt is removed to facilitate fixture and screw changes. The SNAPTOGGLE anchor meets Federal Specification FF-B-588-D for Type V anchors.
The anchor consists of a corrosion-resistant zinc-plated steel anchor channel that inserts through a 1/2" drilled hole in walls, ceilings, or floors and installs against the back side of the mounting material; plastic straps attached to the channel that position it into place; and a plastic cap that slides down the straps and presses into the drilled hole firmly to lock the anchor channel in place behind the mounting material. Once the cap is set in place, the straps snap off by hand. The item being fastened affixes to the mounting material by inserting a bolt through the item, into the drilled hole, and through the anchoring channel behind the material and tightening.

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.

Yes, you do need to be fairly precise when marking your holes. As some of the other reviews state, this box does not come with screws. You'll need #10-24 x 2" long machine screws, which I was able to find at my local Home Depot.
NOTE THAT THESE USE 10-24 SIZE SCREWS. Toggler would be wise to market these as using 10-24 screws rather than 3/16"-24 screws. Based on many reviews here, this has caused a lot of confusion and frustration. 3/16"-24 and 10-24 are identical, but every hardware store and distributor uses the 10-24 moniker to describe this size of screw. If you go into a hardware store and ask for 3/16"-24 screws, they won't know what you're talking about. Ask for 10-24, and they'll show you a vast selection in many different lengths.
I found these bolts in smaller quantities but comparable prices when you figure that the Lowes packages include both the toggle and the bolts! I now own to boxes of almost useless wall anchors.
I had something bigger in mind. Recently I scored a great deal on a vintage wall unit. It's the Scandinavian style, where you attach rails to your wall and then hang shelves, cabinets, tables, and what you off those rails. All the pieces are solid wood, and as you can imagine it adds up to a lot of weight, especially once you start putting stuff on top of it!
At first I thought about cutting out a piece of drywall to install a wooden backing plate behind it. In the end I decided to use these toggle anchors straight into the drywall. This particular wall has newly installed 5/8 inch drywall, mind you, which is a bit thicker than some and in good shape. Were it thinner drywall or very old, I may have reconsidered.
Installation was very easy, much easier than traditional butterfly toggles. One thing to consider is, like those butterfly toggles, you need some space to work with *behind* the drywall so the toggle anchor head has room to flip around and grab the wall. In my case there was a lot of foam insulation behind the wall, so I had to poke around a bit with a screwdriver to make room.
I choose to buy just the toggles and not the screws, choosing instead to order screws separately. This allowed me to pick the color and length of the screws. I choose some ...Read more ›
