The TOGGLER SNAPTOGGLE BB 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 1/4"-20 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.

This is a similar system, but much stronger, and meant for harsher loctions. For example, I have the largest hoffman box container bolted to the side of my house to house my pbx and network equipment so that when the phone company comes out their dmarc is just 8 feet down from where the pbx is and there is no quibbling over who's fault it is (I use a DID trunk system with 100 numbers for inward dialing and a DOD outbound trunk with about 30+ extensions used inside my house - it is definitely not your "normal" house phone system, but a full northern telecom busines system with 130 phone numbers allocated to it, plus I have uverse in the hoffman box - all of that is supported by just 4 of these bolts and a couple pieces of unistrut!
We never did drill into a stud trying to mount this - studfinders didn't work through stucco so the only option was to go with the toggler. you insert the pivot back which has machine threads in the center through your drilled opening then afterwards use the plastic sticks which closely resemble ty-wraps in that they have a bunch of clicks on them to let you pull it tight so it won't drop into the wall. Afterwards, you can put any 1/4 x 20 tpi bolt into it and tighten it up snug.Read more ›
These can take some getting used to the first time, and are sensitive to things behind the wall snagging ... but after you get used to the way the metal slides behind the surface, they are unbeatable in performance.
