Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StickySam Worse than useless
The screws are made of some cheap alloy. I needed roughly 90 for my project, I ruined more than half of what I bought. Eventually I used other similar dimension screws for indoor woodwork, made of steel, perfect, worked fine. Buying a box of 100 steel screws worked out a lots cheaper than the Rubbermaid ( made of rubber? ) worthless efforts.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rimsky Not useable
The wood screws in the pack were adequate. The drywall inserts were impossible to use. Rubbermaid needs to rethink the package contents. I purchased drywall inserts and wood screws separately to install further rails.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TKinVA Cheap Screws will Easily Strip
These may be the cheapest and worst made screws I have ever worked with in my entire life. They just about all stripped and would not bite into the stud I was screwing them into. The rest of the stuff was fine but the screws are easily the most important part of the entire FastTrack storage system as it holds the steel bracket on the wall to support the weight of whatever will be hung on the accessories. Spare yourself the trouble and buy some quality screws instead of throwing away your money on these as I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ijrc Worked like a charm
Super easy installation using the instructions included with hardware. Everything worked as it was supposed to. Anchors were easy to install too. If you're buying Rubbermaid Fasttrack, buying these is a MUST.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Toolman Fasttrack Rail System Anchors
I agree with other postings about the plastic wing-type anchors that came in the Fasttrack hardware pack: 1) no instructions on the package on how to prep for and use the anchor which most people haven't used before, 2) I had to drill about a 1/2 inch hole to accommodate the shoulder of the anchor. I placed the anchor in the wall, held the railing up, inserted the screw, drilled, and the anchor had no bite on the wall and immediately turned with every turn of the screw...now I have a big hole where I needed my initial starting hole...good thing I only drilled one hole and tried it first, 3) after working with the screw, the anchor, and the lack of instructions I realized the mechanics of the screws that came in the hardware pack were apparently just as bad as the mechanics of the anchors, 4) like others, I used better spare anchors and screws I had on hand and also had to go by more just to get the job done.
The Fasttrack rail system is GREAT. Please put better hardware with it and clearer instructions for better results and happier customers.

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.

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 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.
