Rated 1 out of 5 by from better to use toggle bolts not very easy to install, does not cut through drywall without having to apply excessive pressure, which can lead to tip breaking off and causing alignment and hold issues. there is a reason they still sell toggle bolts, so best to use them instead.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A failure to improve This anchor seems to be an attempt to improve on what is a relatively simple idea. For some reason the developers decided that having designated fracture points down the length of the anchor would be a good idea (!?!). I am guessing that this worked well in their lab but in my real world application it is nothing but failure. Maybe the drywall they are using is only 1/4"? I am pre drilling my holes. sending a 1/4" LAG bolt 4" deep into a piece of drywall to be certain there is nothing behind the drywall to impede its funciton. Then, as I carefully insert this anchor by hand, as the resistance grows and torque is needed to truly set this in the wall tightly and correctly, the unit splinters and now, I get to dig a shredded piece of plastic out of my drywall. As if anchoring in a nice piece of drywall didn't already have its own issues, now I have a mangled 1/2" hole. For the record, the simplest variant of this type of anchor, which for some reason Home Depot decided to stop stocking in their stores, works perfectly. None of the on-anchor drill tip garbage. no splintering. just screw it in and use it. Again, I am sure it worked for a certain application, but not mine. and I am paying for it. Good Luck

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great! I just used these to hang a shelf and they were easy to use. The employee at the store informed me that when the anchor is flush to the wall, do not screw anymore. That's when it will break or go directly into the drywall. I did just as he said and had no issues. These are so much better than having to pre-drill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from breaks apart These self drilling anchors were a total mess. I have a 1950's home and the drywall seems to be a little stiffer than new homes. I still pre-drilled holes to make sure they went in properly, but they would not grip easily. There were no studs behind. I had to use a lot of pressure to get them to grip. Afterwards, I got it to grip, it would not drill itself. It eventually wore itself out (as in the plastic is too soft). One of them ended up breaking inside the wall half way in too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk These used to be pretty good within their limited range of use. Now the manufacturer has done something to the plastic compound the anchor is made of and they are hard and brittle. When I tried to run the screws into the anchor and they bind up. When you try to remove the screw the anchor breaks into pieces. This happened twice, so I don't think it was an accident.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep breaking I've managed to get a few of these into my wall, but I'd say 75% of them break, leaving large, useless holes in the drywall. I pre-drill the holes, I widen the hole with my screwdriver to get the anchor going, etc, but even so, once the anchor starts to catch into the drywall it breaks off. My husband has the same problem. I think we'll have to drag ourselves back to Home Depot for some better anchors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Modifications An employee in store recommended I use these to hang a 24x30" mirror. I read the reviews here just before using to make sure I did it right - these things look like they could do a lot of damage and I have little room for error. After reading through the reviews, I decided to drill the screw in first to make a hole for the anchor, then I broke apart the tip of the anchor and screwed it in. The screw went in just fine and no damage was done. I am happy with these.
