Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Great product. Works awesome so far. Easy to use. Leave a big hole in drywall. Hund several heavy items on the wall with no stud support. So far its holding up well. Only been two weeks tho.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sbogaty Take your time and these are great anchors
Like most others, can't really understand the bad reviews. I have installed 200 of these in the past few months. Lessons learned..
1. Regardless of what the packaging says, pre-drill a hole that is around 1/8 inch or even slightly larger.
2. Then screw the anchor in BY HAND with a screwdriver. The thread will likely strip with a drill or powered screw driver unless you are really careful. Do not over-tighten.
3. Use the included screw or a longer #8 if needed.
These have worked very well for me. One does crack once in a while.
One final tip, if using in metal stud walls and coming up against a stud, I still pre-drill (a smaller hole just smaller than the screw) then clip off a portion of the end of the anchor and screw it in. This gives extra strength to the screw in the metal stud.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HomeRepairGuy Should have gone with the generic wall anchor. "EZ" is a misnomer
Wouldn't screw into the drywall at all. I watched the YouTube link to see if I was missing something - where the author recommended using a drill bit to start it off. The darn thing broke when it was halfway in. I was able to remove it, but the other three in the package gave me the same problem.
I am extremely frustrated with the lady in home hardware that recommended this product. I will return to buy the cheaper (and easier to use) wall anchors in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bluejay64 Love these! Follow the instructions Folks.
These are excellent anchors. I don't understand the bad reviews. I can only assume the folks having problems just aren't using them properly. My guess is they're probably over tightening the anchors and/or screws, or not inserting the anchors in level or bending them in the process. Anyone following the instructions will have no problem at all. I've learned that It pays to read the instructions on practically EVERYTHING. I'm a pretty decent handyman around the house, and having tackled many projects large and small over the years, I've learned the hard way that it pays to read the instructions, understand them, take your time, and pay attention. I've spent way too many hours undoing, repairing, and reinventing the wheel simply because of my own failure to properly follow instructions. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. IMHO anyway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott These work great!
What are some of these reviewers doing with these that they're having so many issues? Hammers? Huge pilot holes? I have been using these anchors for years and have never had one of the issues those reviewers have had. They screw directly into the drywall with no problem. If I'm hanging a shelf or something that needs to be level I will use the screw to make a pilot hole first to assure that is exactly where my anchor hole will end up. These work great and hold a lot of weight!

This was completely useless. DO NOT trust this product if you want to hang anything heavier than 1lb.
We used it on our drywall, for something that weights maybe 15lbs, thinking the 75lbs it "promises" to hold would work.
Not the case.
It came down after 5 minutes and broke our drywall on the way.
Waste of money

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Moe Pure garbage.
Don't ever use this product unless you like giant holes in your wall. Pure garbage.
