Please don't use this product. Crossthreads causing you to rip a whole through the wall. Would ask for my money back. Rather them come fix my wall instead. Only gave one star cause I was required

Works like a charm! Once you realize that the toggle in the back has a 2-1/2 - 3 inch distance, if your drywall is a 1/2 inch thick, to snug up against the drywall before it will tighten down fully. I would recommend this to anyone who was needing an anchor for hanging things that are heavy and pricey.
My personal opinion about these bad reviews with people who have had troubles with them are either installing them incorrectly and/or putting too much torque on them. I don't know maybe it's just me or maybe it's that I'm a designer and understand design intention. I would just ask people before they write a review to consult someone that might understand what is going wrong before criticizing a company's product.
Again, I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who needs to hang for instance a 55 inch flat screen TV, they work well and I'm not concerned with it falling!

The trick to using these is to use a straight shank screwdriver to drive the toggle into the wall. If you use a Phillips Head, they strip. Also, if driving into cement board, the plastic casing will break. These are for plaster drywall. They worked great and were very easy to use. We shall see how well they hold, as I am using them to install a 6' clothing rod. I will update if they don't hold up.

They break or don't engage when using. You just get a screw spinning in the nasty hole it put in your wall. They are expensive. Avoid.

Just made the job harder. While drilling it in, the plastic anchor strips out and then you cant get it into the drywall. If they made the anchor out of metal, it wouldn't be a bad idea.

First off, I followed the instructions exactly as they say on the box. They drilled easily into the drywall. Once I began tightening the screws I heard a pop, and I didn't realize until I had 5 installed it was the plastic breaking on the inside and the metal piece falling off. The screws never lock and continue to spin no matter how much tightening. Now I'm stuck with nonfunctioning anchors and giant holes in my wall. Why does Home Depot continue to sell these after years of bad reviews?!?!?!
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! They'll ruin your walls.

These do not work on any insulated wall. They get tangled in the insulation and the plastic snaps. Out of 25 I got 7 to work and now I have lots of drywall to repair. I bought them in store and did not see these horrible reviews before purchase. I can't believe Home Depot still sells this garbage when they know how bad they are.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MikeNYC DO NOT BUY! Great way to destroy your drywall and cause a much bigger problem!
I was attracted to these anchors because they claim to support a lot of weight and look very sturdy. Unfortunately this is far from the case, if you have not yet purchased these... do yourself a favor and DO NOT PURCHASE them! The plastic piece easily cracks off the metal piece when screwing into the wall. Also, in my case the screw never fully tightened into the anchor, it just keeps twisting and twisting. When i added any when to the anchor it starts to pull out of the wall 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. Now if I do take these junky anchors out of the wall I am left with a large gaping hole and a headache!
