A: I utilized these anchors to install medium size metal hangar hooks on my garage drywall. I knew that I would only hit one stud for mounting location I wanted. I did drill a small pilot hole in the the drywall to minimize any damage to the surface of the drywall. In the area of the stud I continued drilling the pilot hole into the stud. This ensured that the metal anchor would not break when tightening into the wooden stud. They are very sturdy and secure allowing me to hang up several times on the hooks. When the hooks are removed I suspect there will be minimal damage to the surface of the drywall which could be easily repaired with some putty.

A: Hi Kash, yes--these Stud Solver anchors can be used on both drywall and studs.
A: My experience is that these will not work in a Lath and Plaster wall at all and not only not work but in fact will actually damage the wall. They are the best for Drywall or Plaster Over Blueboard. Instead, choose an anchor that is rated for masonry or one that is designed specifically for plaster walls.
