Finally, a wall anchor worth buying! Didn't know these existed until finding them by accident, online. I will never buy the plastic version of these again, as they tend to strip off if they come in contact with a stud. I absolutely LOVE these!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DepotSquatter These are the bomb!
They make quick work of hanging tasks, allowing you to decide where you want the screw(s) inserted and eliminating the need to determine what you are going to hit by nailing nails into the spots first, prying them out if hitting a stud, and then drilling 5/16" holes in the drywall (dusty mess) for anchors if that is all that is there, etc., etc.
My new curtain rods came with them! Before opening the box, I went on HomeDepot.com for these anchors because I had bought them there once and loved them. Low and behold, I didn't even have to buy them. Am going to replenish on my next trip in - for future use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by agarzola Excellent, sturdy solution
I would recommend these for use on hollow drywall. I used a box of these to secure twin-tracks for a shelving system in our media room, and after a few weeks, everything seems to be very secure. I’ve yet to use these anchors on studs, but that can only make them stronger and sturdier.
Word of advice: Heed the instructions, and don’t over tighten the anchors. Only screw them in until they are flush with the wall and not a bit more. These anchors are designed to hold on to the drywall as soon as they’re in; over tightening will only force the drywall to come loose between the anchor threads, and you will be left with an unreliable anchor. Just get them to that flush position and stop, and don’t over tighten the screws in either, as they too are not meant to be secured by force.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oshidori So far so good, holding up bookshelves and heavy mirrors after 6 months!
I have an older plaster wall house that seemingly contains NO studs anywhere! Or, at least they're impossible to find, even when I give up and resort to drilling a million holes. These are a life saver! Very easy to put in, and they seem to work amazingly well so far. I didn't even get to use my whole pack yet because once my brother discovered how great they were, he stole them from me! Before finding these nifty things, I had tried every type of wall anchor under the sun. Going to stock up on these very soon, and hide them from my brother on his visits!

I use these for everything on the walls in my house that doesn't need to be attached to a stud. Picture frames, toilet paper holders, thermostats, hand towel racks, you name it. I try to hit a stud, but that's not always possible, so these things are the perfect solution. They drive just fine using a 12V drill. The genius part is, you don't even have to change the bit! A Philips bit drives the anchor into the wall, and then the same bit drives the screw in afterwards.

I admit I have not used these to secure to wood studs. I use these in hollow wall Sheetrock. You can drive them in with a manual screwdriver or use a power driver.
They are medium duty. I use them to support fluorescent lighting fixtures, and also for other items such as thermostats.
Never had a problem. Make sure you get the metal anchors and not plastic.

These are the best, I use them to hang anything that has some weight, or will carry weight. They may be overkill for some items, but they are so much easier to install than the plastic anchors.

These things are super tough. They go right in and hold securely. I think you could screw them through the drywall if you tried. Just push and screw at the same time. Even if you're over a stud it will still screw in unlike the plastic ones.
