Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jason Only one of the two worked
Only one is performing as desired. On the other, the screw will not secure to the anchor and pulls away no matter what I try. 50% success rate on a 2 pack is not ok.

I had no problem using these toggle locks in two of the four locations I attempted. But on the third, the lock mechanism wouldn't work, so the screw kept spinning in place and I had to remove the toggle lock (which had not opened) and replace. The replacement worked. In the fourth location, however, the screw never really got a tight fit in the anchor, so the anchor is stuck in the wall and the screw slips around in it. I can't remove the anchor because the mechanism is sprung. You can see what I mean in the attached photo.
Fifty-fifty is not the greatest of odds, so I'd use this product with caution.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Worked for me...
After screwing in the first screw, I went online to get a better idea of how much "effort" is too tight. After reading this small sampling of review's I was thinking, uh oh. I examed the anchors too get a feel for how the anchors work. I just installed 12 of these and not a single issue. I did pushed the screw into I felt it "engage", then screwed the screw in 3-4, times to get a good bite on anchor. Pulled the screw back out till it stopped, hit the wall. I knew then it had grabed the toggle. I did use a small underside screwdriver to help prevent overy tightening n to have a better "feel". Maybe none of this was really necessary, but what the heck, right...
Over a 4 due to the apprehension from there's review's. Yet all in all, I'm a happy camper.

If you can't hit a stud, these anchors are the next best thing. They screw into the drywall and the toggle flips out and engages the back of the wall for a solid attachment. I used them to put up towel racks and they worked great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boomercopeland Great product
Used about 10 of these to hang shelving units in my pantry room. I was hesitant to use after reading the reviews, but I didn't have an issue with a single anchor. I activated the anchor and insured that it worked properly prior to putting it into the wall. I found that the hole of the anchor wasn't tapped extremely well, but after running the screw through it a few times, it activated a lot smoother. Also, once activated behind the wall, it takes quite a bit of screwing to get that anchor all the way to the drywall (don't know if some thought the anchor was broken because of this). Would highly recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrHappyChore Supports a lot of weight and well designed
They work as they should. However, I recommend pre-drilling to avoid chipping the Sheetrock/Drywall.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by customer Broke apart inside wall.
After screwing into drywall I heard the sound of Metal hitting the floor. I unscrewed the anchor back out and saw that the part that flips up had broken off.
In hindsight the flipping part of the anchor was loose before I started compared to the 2nd anchor, but I didn't bother using the 2nd one and just returned it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Anchor Bolts Strip, then Anchor can't be removed
I read instructions - I'm just like that. I read the instructions on the package, and it cautioned against over tightening. Therefore, rather than use an electric driver (even with clutch all the way to the lowest setting), I decided to screw these in by hand. I installed the wall anchor part - so far, so good. I inserted the bolts to capture into the toggle, and screwed them down. The first one never seems to get "tight", and almost felt like they were free wheeling, then I finally got a slight amount of bite after around 25 - 30 turns of the screwdriver. I know these are long screws to adapt to varying length applications. I didn't "tighten", and moved to the 2nd screw. Same exact situation. I then went to "tighten" carefully by hand, and after a very light 1/4 turn of very, very minor resistance, boom - free wheeling again.
They never caught again. I then removed them. Then the fun part - you can't easily remove the anchors from the wall without major surgery since the "toggle lock" is now at 90 degrees.
Upon inspection, the anchor bolts were stripped around 2/3 of the way down, probably right where that very slight 1/4 turn of resistance was. Now I've got two anchors in the wall that are huge, ugly, and impossible to remove because of the 90 degree toggle. Well - you get it. Not good...
