Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Taking them back These shouldn't even be on the shelf. I've used many dry wall anchors and these fall in the category of the junk you get free in some packages that usually get tossed for better. April 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst anchors I have ever used... I have been hanging a lot of items on my old plaster and lathe walls lately and have tried a few different type of anchors to get the job done. But these... they are the worst anchors I have ever used. Even if you drill the absolute most precise hole to put them in they will not go in all the way. Normally not a problem, you just give the anchor a soft tap or two with a hammer till they are flush with the wall and all is good. But not with these guys! The top end of the anchor is very flimsy. A single tap with with a hammer or even a firm push with your finger causes the entire exposed part of the anchor to collapse, rending it smashed, useless and requiring a pair of needle nose pliers in order to remove it from the wall. I was lucky to get one in every four anchors to work. In the end I went back to the cheap generic style screw anchors that you can find in every hardware store. They are a heck of a lot cheaper and work ten times better! March 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Good Anchor, Reasonably Priced As with any wall anchoring product, you have to have a little patience and pay attention to what you're doing. If you drill your hole correctly and insert the anchor with a little care and a love tap, you'll have great success. I install a lot of shelving, coat hooks, etc. for my customers and I really like these anchors and typically mess up about 5% if I'm careless. I've used them in masonry as well with great success. At about 11 cents a piece, you can't beat the 100-pack price. December 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does NOT work!! Good in principle and looks nice in the picture - but doesn't work AT ALL. Even worse than the standard plastic wall anchors. DO NOT BUY!! Stick with the most popular threaded drywall anchors. August 16, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Does not work as intended As you thread the screw into this anchor, all it does is pull the anchor out of the wall toward you. In fairness, two of them did support a 40 lb shelving unit, but I took it down as soon as I saw that the anchor was hanging a good half inch out of the wall. In short: do not buy. January 6, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage Does not work. Will strip out hole requiring new even larger anchor. Stay away!!!! July 5, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for drywall and brick. My house has brick and drywall walls. These work well for both materials, and are a bargain for the 100-packs. They aren't perfect - as other reviewers have stated, you must drill a good, clean 1/4" hole for them to work well. I've never had one fail once installed, but if you're drilling the holes right you will lose 10% or so when hammering them in (if you aren't, your predrilled holes are too big). The included bit is a nice touch, but buy a pack of 1/4" bits so you have a sharp one on hand (plus masonry bits if you need those). March 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was easy to hammer [not in the beam of course ]. April 16, 2014
