Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RandF Great for grab bars
These are recommended to install grab bars (handicapped rails).
They worked well. You do have to be aware of the depth. We had to drill into the cement blocks behind one wall as the space between the plasterboard and the blocks was only 1 1/2".
Also note the 'hat' that sits on the surface of the wall is 1" diameter so you have to locate the center at least 1/2" from the edge of the installed item if you wish to cover it. We did a little trimming on some so the cover would fit over the flange of the bar.
All in all, they are strong enough to trust with my life and no more difficult to install than any other anchors.

These things hold a lot. I mounted a metal network enclosure to drywall and it isn't going anywhere you'd need a prybar to get it off the wall with 5 of these holding it on! Very glad I found these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProInstaller Works as designed!
I reviewed several "consumer reviews" on this product before purchasing. It works as designed if you install it correctly. Most of the negative reviews are from improper application, improper installation, and simply not following directions.

Are they strong? Absolutely. The anchors behind the wall are so strong that they will start to pull back through the drywall as you tighten them up. I left a nice 3" diameter raised spot in the wall before the anchor was fully tightened. In other words, they DO NOT work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RRR3 huge learning curve
I f you want to hold some weight, you have to use the hanging washer or else the plastic will pull through and fail. If you dont screw in enough you will need to keep pressure on the screw so the backside grips and allows for a snug fit.Not doing this makes for a long day if you don't have a multi tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Best Overall Wall Anchor I've Used
While they seem a bit pricey, especially when you purchase the accessory drill bit, these anchors are worth every penny. Don't skimp on the details - the accessory bit makes a nice clean, perfectly-sized hole for the anchor. I've used many other hollow wall anchors, and this one is consistently the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by myownhandyman Better than expected
Got these to hang a heavy picture, worked like a charm. Easy to intall and holding strong. Tried just about everything else on this picture and this is the only thing that has worked. Gave it a try on the paper towel holder, worked great too. This thing really works.
