Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom79 Safe choice for concrete
I used these anchors to fix some bike racks and they are holding very, very well in a foundation concrete wall. The drill bit is a nice addition.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JAG Works good for shower grab bar installation
Used these to install a grab bar in the shower. Dad needed something to grab onto so got a bunch of grab bars to install; 1 in shower, 2 in toilet room/area. At first, thought Wing-its were the best choice; but after careful thought, and not knowing what exactly is behind the tile, how much space there would be, or if a stud was close-by, Wing-its posed too much of a risk (and if it didn't work out, there would be a 3/4" hole to deal with). Opted for these Triple Grip and worked wonderfully, for a great price.
This package comes with a drill bit to drill through tile and whatever is behind it (sheet rock or sheet rock with that metal mesh). Though it took a good 3+ minutes to drill just 1 hole (and quite a bit of shaking, ugly noises, and sweat), it does the job nicely. I did have an issue where the bit wanted to pull itself upwards, i'm guessing due to the hardness of the tile, but only by a millimeter or two. That said, a bit of advice = after drilling one hole, put in the Triple Grip, align whatever you are installing with the supplied screws (only a few twists in, don't go even halfway; 5-6 turns is good enough) and remeasure/level. Then drill another hole, put in another Triple Grip and remeasure/level. Would advise to NOT just measure once and drill all holes in one go. If i had done that, the holes would've been several millimeters off and would not have lined up with the holes on the grab bar I installed.
The install took a bit longer than anticipated, but boy is it sturdy. I can sleep well tonight knowing there's not just some cruddy suction-cup grab bar potentially causing some serious injury. Spend the extra time on these and you and yours will be better for it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by larry The best for buck anchor solution in a home with plaster walls
I've been using TripleGrip anchors for quite a while now. I use them for all anchoring solutions where I'm not anchoring into a stud. They really shine in our home built in the early 70s. These things hold like no other in the plastered walls. They're crazy strong and certainly meet or beat their strength rating. I prefer these to toggle solutions - they're cheaper than most and less cleanup after removing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carlos Works great when installed correctly
Don't over drill the initial hole you are making. If the anchor is too loose you put to much pressure when drilling. Slow and steady wins the race

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by McDaddy Must have bought a bad lot
I bought these "Triple Grip" anchors to mount a couple ClosetMaid wire shelves. They appeared to be a good anchor and with a 102 lb rating they should have been way stronger than what I really needed. However, after drilling (3) holes into the drywall for the anchors using the included drill bit, I installed the anchors and began tightening the screws to mount a fixture for the shelves and all three anchors spun inside the wall before the fastener was anywhere near the fixture I was mounting (the fixture was never tight against the wall). Either the drill bit that came with the package was oversize or the plastic anchors were defective. I believe the problem is with the plastic anchors. One of the plastic anchors not only spun but pushed straight thru the hole to the other side of the drywall! A 15 minute installation just became way longer than it should have...now it's back to Home Depot to return the anchors and buy some molly bolts. Very annoying!
