Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fangle Great idea - junk execution
These look like a great idea. They will work for applications where the screw can't be pulled tight like hanging a heavy mirror with hooks on the back. Unfortunately, the plastic straps are so weak that they break inside the clip, not outside, making it useless just as the installation is completed. It took all 6 in the package to get 2 good ones in the wall. Junk - do not waste your money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DonOrlando Plastic Straps break easily
I was trying to mount 3/4" plywood to the drywall & metal studs using these 3/16" strap toggles (ultimate goal was to put a TV & mount on the plywood).
First, I drilled the 2" holes required through the plywood, drywall, and metal studs. I put the strap toggles through all try and tightened the strap. (The plywood is a 3/4" x 2' x 4'). I "secured" the plywood to the wall using 3 of these toggles. Once the 3 toggles were installed, I was planning to add another 9 toggles to the plywood before mounting the TV mount.
Within 15 seconds of letting the plywood hang from the 3 toggles, all the toggles broke. They broke at the plastic straps - they did not pull out of the walls.
The second time, I decided to secure the toggles against the wall and then screw the plywood. (First time I tried to secure the plywood also). I screwed the plywood using the top 3 holes and using 3 more toggles with the included machine bolts (and added Washers). The plywood held and I was able to drill 9 pilot holes. Then, I removed the screws to take down the plywood. At this point , 2 of the 3 toggles again broke at the plastic straps.
It states that the strap toggle does not need the screws to anchor and that I should be able to remove and later re-install the screws. Also, I was surprised that the toggle were so weak that they could not hold plywood. I'm obviously not going to try to complete mounting the plywood with these toggles and definitely not mount the TV mount and TV.
Maybe someone can tell me if I am doing something wrong and I will gladly change this review, but for now I am returning these toggles and trying a competing brand at Lowe's.

I used these drywall anchors to hang a 45 lb iron stag head and an 80 lb floating mirror into 1/2" drywall without issue.
