Customer Questions & Answers

Can they be used to hold 50lbs from the ceiling

Asked by: Jon
The manufacturer's instructions say that 50 lbs is the maximum ceiling load. Personally, I don't like to stress a part, or it's attachment material, to the stated maximum load rating.

how do I remove it from the wall?

I used this product to hang a book shelf and it failed. I used two of the toggle locks (rated at 100 pounds each) to support a shelf plus book s(about 30 pounds total). The toggle lock on the left failed (the 'bracing arm' that holds it in place on the inside of the wall fell off) ripping a huge hole in my drywall. Now I need to remove the toggle lock on the right so I can patch my holes. I've removed the screw from the anchor and have tried to unscrew it, but it's not coming out. I don't want to force it because the last thing that I want is more damage. How can I remove it?
Asked by: anonymous
I have uninstalled these without making the holes any bigger. First you unscrew the long threaded Phillips head screw all the way out. Then you unscrew the wall ancor. Next cut the 4 thin metal bars that go from the wall ancor head into the wall. Now you can just push the rest of the ancor directly into the wall. I used a wire snipping tool to cut the metal strips but you could use a dremel, pliers or almost anything.

How big of a hole does this anchor make in the drywall?

I tried using a traditional Moly bolt and it broke. After removing the Moly, I have a 9/16 inch hole in the 1/2 inch thick plaster (NOT drywall). What is the diameter of this toggle, and will it fill most of this hole I have. I would prefer to have a fat Moly or Toggle to fill the hole.
Asked by: gromittoo
The body of the insert slides into a 3/8" hole. The flanges at the head add another 1/8" so this is about 8/16. I wouldn't recommend using this in lath and plaster -- I tried and it was a disaster. Your best bet is to use fixall or something that hardens and can then be drilled to fill the holes and to try again with a traditional moly bolt or, if you have a large item to cover the hole, a toggle bolt paired with a washer big enough to cover the hole.

What do I do if the screw isn't screwing in after it's been pushed into the anchor halfway?

Asked by: CliffandBrodie
The screw is 2-1/2 inches long, and it won't begin to thread in to the toggle bar until 1-1/2 inch of the screw is inside the anchor body. Try a small amount of WD-40 on the screw threads and apply light but constant pressure on the screw as you turn it.

Toggle Lock 100 lb. Pan Head Philips Heavy Duty Self Drilling Drywall Anchors with Screws (10-Pack) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used 8 of these to mount a 95 x 55 inch TV wall panel. All of them worked and none of them broke... Used 8 of these to mount a 95 x 55 inch TV wall panel. All of them worked and none of them broke. I have used this for many other things including Big TV mounts and wall hooks that heavy backpacks are regularly hung from. All of them have worked and none of them have broken. I use a drill to screw them into the drywall and tighten the screw. All of them have worked and none of them have broken. I'm guessing that most of the bad reviews would fall under "user error" Sometimes you have to pull the screw out and put it back in to get it to work and after the screw is flush you have to keep tightening it until it is seated against the back of the wall. Definitely worth buying.

I tried these and had two problems immediately. I pre-drilled through the plaster and the lath successfully using a 5/8 drill. The bolt inserted firmly but when I tried to seat it using the #2 phillips head, the final thread on the head end gouged out the plaster and brown coat. Well, I wasn't too concerned, because in my application the holes would be hidden under an escutcheon. Then came the time to screw in the center-screws and pivot out the toggle, and of the three I needed, only one seated itself properly. As I am screwing into a ceiling, that means I now have to go up into the crawl space and figure out why this new fangled contraption isn't toggling properly. I'm glad this wasn't into a wall, or I'd never be able to see what went wrong on the other side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little trick I learned It seemed like the screws weren't threading properly as if the inside threading was stripped and the screws weren't catching. I was very worried after reading all of the negative reviews but after fiddling for a while, I figured that if you screw them in by hand while pulling away from the wall, for some reason it catches. Don't understand the physics of it but after 20 minutes of cursing at the wall and thinking about the ramifications of having to pull them out by force and spackling the huge holes, I figured that out. Hopefully it will help others. Not as intuitive or easy as their plastic 75 lbs counterparts which I use all of the time.

Just used these to hang a bathroom cabinet because studs were not an option, and I love them. Never been very confident in the other drywall anchor options I have used, but these things worked really great. They dig in to your dry wall super tightly (I pre-drilled to fit the narrower part of the toggle, so that it slid right in up to the big threads, I believe it was a 5/8 bit, but please check for yourself first! pre-drill too big and it won't be snug of course). Anyway, they locked in super tightly, then getting the screw to activate the toggle and lock up against the back side of the drywall was super easy and quick. From reading the negative reviews I would say it is almost definitely operator error or lack of preparation that results in problems. As one reviewer suggested, I would definitely encourage playing with one first so you can see how the whole system works, before it goes in the wall and you rely on feel to know if you're ok.

Horrible Product - bought a 6 pack of these to hang a 15lb bathroom shelf. 2 of these just spun in the wall forcing me to cut them loose. The other 2 held the shelf, but you can EASILY pull these out. Now I have 4 big holes in the wall. I'm hoping regular toggle bolts will span the hole. Returning the partially used box.

The rail was pre-perferated to accommodate the manufacture's fastening adjustment system, which required 12-inch spacing between attachment points, and my application required that the rail be mounted with it's top edge 0.9 inch from the ceiling. I needed a reasonably heavy duty anchor between studs that, when installed, would not interfere with the top plate of the wall's framing. My first choice would have been something different, but the wall framing clearance issue made this anchor the only practical choice. By rotating the EZ Anchor so that it's toggle bar was parallel to the ceiling, my clearance problem was solved. The negative reviews here were discouraging, but the positive reviews made it clear that if you understand how this anchor works, and work carefully, the result will be satisfying. The tips I can offer are similar to those in other reviews: 1) read the instructions and look at the video if things aren't clear; 2) exercise the fastener before installation so you understand how it works; 3) spray a small amount or WD-40 on the anchor and screw before installing and wipe off excess; 4) drill a small pilot hole (1/8 - inch or so); 5) drive the anchor in to the wall slowly and carefully as to not make the hole larger than it needs to be, don't over-tighten; 6) use a flat washer under the screw head if possible; 7) gently tap in the screw to pivot the toggle bar and turn slowly, no power drivers, and; 8) don't over-tighten the final installation - clamped friction is what makes the anchor work, not torque.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Having trouble with these? These tips might help. I use these often for wall mounting jobs. (TV mounts, floating shelves, mirrors, etc.) They work best in 5'8" or thinner drywall, because the toggle needs about 5/8" between its pivoting end and the Philips head end to properly swing out from the anchor sleeve. They won't work on double layered drywall. Exterior walls with insulation and/or a vapor barrier (plastic sheeting between the drywall and insulation) can make installation difficult, since the toggle can snag on either one. I prefer to drill a pilot hole with a 3/16" drill, about 2" deep, and see if any insulation grabs on and comes out when I remove the drill. If it does I use the self drilling point of an anchor to insert one as deep as the threads without engaging the threads in the drywall. Then I poke a screwdriver through the hole to clear out the barrier and insulation, so the toggle has room to operate. I suggest taking a moment to closely examine how these work, particularly the "ramp" that the screw contacts to deploy the toggle. I've found that inserting a screw into the toggle for a few turns, then removing the screw and gently repacking the toggle before screwing one into the wall increases the chances of success. The idea is to preset the toggle so it needs minimal pressure from the screw to deploy. Don't repack the toggle by locking it all the way in, just give it a hair-trigger, so to speak. I've ruined several anchors by ramming the screw into them, thinking more pressure would help, but it just jams the screw tip into the soft and easily dented ramp. After you drill to check for insulation and vapor barrier, then preset the toggle and screwing the anchor in, NOTICE THIS: there are arrows on the Philips head showing you the orientation of the toggle. You want to snug down the anchor into the drywall the right way the FIRST TIME, if possible. Gently adjust the anchor until the arrows point where you want. If you strip out the hole in the drywall, and the anchor can spin freely in the wall, it might still work, but it's not ideal. Now it's time to insert the screw. Remember: easy does it, no slamming it in. You'll know it's working if you give the screw a few turns, then try to pull the screw out of the wall. You should feel the toggle pressing against the other side. It will take SEVERAL turns to snug the toggle down, and you don't want to apply too much torque or else you'll strip out the hole in the toggle. I use my drill on a low torque setting to screw until I start to feel a little resistance. The screw head will actually be all the way flush to the anchor and spin freely for a pretty long time. Keep going. It's pulling the toggle closer to the wall. When you start to feel resistance, switch to a hand screwdriver and snug it up. Finally, these aren't meant to be removed. I spoke to a company rep about this. Like toggles from toggle bolts, you're supposed to just push them through the wall and patch up the holes. Good luck with your project.
