A: Tells you right on the package. 40 lbs.
A: i don’t think the screws will break through the tip of the anchor, the screw will spin the anchor and strip the drywall, making it crumble
A: I didn't test it but mine went in all the way. Sounded like the anchor end broke off when the screw got to a certain point.
A: Yes, I found the screws to be too long for my purposes. I used smaller screws for hanging pictures and wall hangings. If you use what was given with the anchor you can literally strip the anchor in the wall making it useless, of course it depends on your walls and what you are putting the anchor into.
A: The package of anchors I bought also had 1 1/4in long screws, but anchors are 1in, makes no sense. Especially when you see in image a 1 1/4in anchor comes with a 1 1/4in screw. The solution was to use a metal #6-1in pan head phillips screw, works great.
A: They are longer so when screwed in they flare the imbedded end to help secure them into the wall! You should drive the screw all the way in!
A: The screw will drive thru the bottom of the anchor and work just fine. The anchor is designed to to do this.
A: I'm sure it would bite and hold but I wouldn't to put a real heavy mirror on a hollow door. Maybe just one of those thin, slim door mirrors which wouldn't require anchors that can support up to 40 lbs/each.
A: Based on the product description you can use it in a hallow core door. You want to make sure that the mirror is anchored so that door movement won't cause the mirror to shift. I used it for a towel hook in a hallow core door over 6 months ago and it is still holding well.
A: Without any knowledge about the type or weight of the mirror, I would think it’s most likely. The door and anchors can only hold so much. Though the details say no pre-drilling is required, I still would.
A: I would think so, as long as there is plenty of room depthwise. I used them to mount a towel bar on a hollow core door, but it was a plain door, not 6 panel.
