Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave No More Loose Towel Bars
I installed the stainless steel clip with the wingIt in about 15 seconds. I mounted my 150 mirror to the clip, expected it to rip out of the wall. Not only did the wingit hold, but I could actually swing the mirror on the hook and it did not rip out of the wall. I have 4 active kids who are always bumping into everything. I am 100% confident that my mirror is installed with the WingIt fastener is kid proof.
And in my home that is saying a lot. I also reinstalled 2 towel bars that were always coming off the wall. It has been one month since I reinstalled the towel bars with the wingits and no more loose towel bars. I would recommend these fasteners for anything you want to keep in the wall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by b1barnes A lot of holding power
Wingits are a great product for holding heavy items to drywall, plaster and wood. The through hole into the wall is a bit large and if hanging certain objects the black pilot may show. There are different sizes and some have offsets, but Home Depot only carries the one type in the stores. So for the others you have to order.
Strength of these are superior to anything I have used before.
One caution is you cannot be very close to a stud or the unit will not open and tighten correctly.

The only way these will fail is if you don't install them correctly. Get the install bit, that way you know the hole is the correct size.
As for needing to assembly them? Really? A DIYer and you complain about assembling 4pcs together?
These things are GREAT!!! I would have no concerns about using these to hang a DLP or CRT TV (yes, I said DLP or CRT, that's how strong these things are!)

I purchased the wingit anchor to hang some towel bars and some shelving for a friend. These fasteners really made the job easy and are far better and stronger than the old spring loaded toggles. I am going to keep a half of dozen in my tool box. Great fastener!

These are the cheapest fasteners I've ever tried to use. I couldn't believe I had to assemble them after I opened the package. After an hour of trying to get them installed I went back to Depot and got some toggles that worked great. What a waste of time and money.

I have used these to hang mirrors in both bathrooms and a 125lb picture (old 9 pane window) and it holds it great and still hanging after 10yrs and no movement at all.
