Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Screws stink Cheap screws that strip. Anchors aren't great too.
Save yourself the frustration and do not use these screws. Seriously, throw them out. I had three strip with the slightest of driving, then switched to my own screws.
What did I do with the three that were half into the wall? I could have used a bit to screw into them and remove, but that would have been more frustrating. I took my "persuader" (a hammer) and whacked them sideways until the plastic cover would fit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MacB Horrible screws
Of the 6 screws used to put the rail up on a 2 x 6 ledger board, only one would go even close to all the way in (even though I drilled 1/8" pilot holes). I ended up using drywall screws, which went in like a charm.

I gave this only one star only because of the way these people make you pay more to install what you just gotten from them. All the other things I have gotten over the years, when you buy something you get what you need to put up what you already gave your money for. But with this group you don't, you have to paid more money to install it. You don't have to buy it, but if you need something like this and this is all that is there, you got to do what you got to do. Other than this it is great and I love it, I just don't like the way they make you pay more money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ticked What was needed and at the Right Price
The Fasttrack System by Rubbermaid was only available for online purchase, but the hardware needed to attach it was available at Home Depot (and a few other places) at a much better price than online. It was what was needed,adequate for the job, and installation was quick.
I used the pick up service at the local store---that wasn't quite up to par, but worth trying at least once more.

Bought these just for the drywall fasteners. Your supposed to squeeze them together before inserting into pilot hole. Well, 3 of the cracked and broke before I even put them in the wall. Ended up using concrete/drywall anchors I already had.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geocon Great product, but the hollow wall anchors are terrible
I love the strength and looks of the fastrack system. The steel rails are very strong. The regular pattern of the holes drilled for attachment means that sometimes you must make adjustments for studs that are never always OC. I can live with that. And I understand the need for using hollow wall anchors to attach the rail between studs, but those you purchase as part of the system are awkward to use, and require a 1/2 in hole to be drilled for installation. Drilling the hole requires extra steps, makes a dust mess, and they must be pre-drilled prior to attaching the rail to the studs, often resulting in mis-alignment. The nylon anchors must be pinched to be inserted, (very difficult to do without big channel locks) and invarably tear the drilled hole larger upon insertion, resulting in a sloppy set which defeats the purpose of using the stupid things to begin with. After one rail, I ditched the Rubbermaid anchors for 50 lb. Wall Dogs. Much easier to use, no predrilling, screw in after the rail is attached to the studs (double up easily if in doubt about coverage, without the damage to the wall board I described), and cheaper to boot. Fast Track is a great system ( though the the components are pricey), but Rubbermaid should substitue something else for their hollow all anchors. What ever revenue they loose will be offset by happier customers.

Instructions should accompany the pack because it is not shown on the packet how they should be installed. The toggle anchors crack out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris9771 How do you install these anchors
I have used drywall anchors a million times in my life, however i have never seen these butterfly ones before. how are these installed using the pushpin to mark your hole I assume, but how do you get the anchor in the wall without cracking it? please provide direction or video. thank you
