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 1.0 out of 5.0 by rasta 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.

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.

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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by psh2013 Great product
After getting home from the store and reading the reviews I was a bit nervous about using these. I first tried one in a scrap of drywall and it worked flawlessly. Not sure what all the negative reviews are about. I was MORE than impressed with how easy they are to use. I started slowly so that tip would cut into the drywall, and then once the wider treads made contact I put a little more pressure on, and it went in smoothly. Used them to secure a 1/4" mirror. Very pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 80sGuy Best anchor for drywalls, period!!!
I've been trying to keep a towel bar in my bathroom to stay put for years by using those regular blue plastic anchors, but they keep on falling off and leaves a bigger hole because of its tapered design. The E-Z Ancor Twist-N-Lock are the solution. Now my fixtures stay put and tight on the wall with virtually zero movement! I'm going to change out all the other plastic anchors around the house for these E-Z screw-ons (especially for the surround-sound satellite speakers) because they will NOT fall out unless you unscrew them.
Note: if you have thicker walls, snip out the tips (where it crack open) before screwing in to prevent it from opening and messing up both the product and your wall.

Followed instructions. I went to install metal screw and it twisted the anchor all the way through the drywall. Now I have an anchor size hole in drywall.Now its a bigger repair. Too much torque on screw to plastic. I wouldnt recommend.
My skill level is above average DIY.
