Easy to use, not expensive. The only fastener that was the proper color. The problem is that they don't hold up well. Have replaced at least 20 over the past 5 or 6 years because they keep on snapping. Not sure - could be the cold weather in winter that causes them to become very brittle.

A shutter came loose -- the top two fasteners broke.
I had to special order replacements - yuck, 10 day wait.
There are three problems with this fastener --
1. They're pretty flimsy, which means driving them into the wall can be a problem.
2. The way they're ribbed once in (or partially in) you will not get them out. If you make a mistake you MAY be able to drill it out, more likely you will have to drill another hole. This can be a problem. Your fasteners will not be parallel and will look uneven.
3. (Reference #1) Why did the first two fail? These are outdoor shutters. I would expect the fasteners to stand up to the normal pressures of weather change.

These were the easiest fasteners I've ever used. Made the installation go faster and held the shutters securely. They supply plenty of extra fasteners as well so we have replacements if they are ever needed and I don't foresee that at all because they are so well made.

The fasteners were not as sturdy as required to hold the heavy shutter. Each would bend as it was hammered into the siding. I broke 3 of the six fasteners during installation.

Don't know how long they will last, but these are made of plastic. You might think that this item will not work, but you will be surprised.

Package listed as having 12 pins. While a few packages had one or two extra pins, one package only had nine pins.

These look ok, but they are just cheap plastic. An option for metal would be great.

I was attempting to replace the old ones that broke, but once these are about halfway into the hole, they begin to bend and will not insert any further. I tried everything I could think of, but fighting with these fasteners from the top of a 32 foot extension ladder was becoming dangerous. I'll return these and use reliable concrete anchors. I'll probably save some money.
