Beware of Labeling (My pack said #8 screws)
I bought these anchors, but needed longer screws because of what I am mounting on the wall. MY box of anchors says that it comes with SIX pairs of anchors with #8 screws, so I bought a pack of #8 2-inch screws. Well, they don't fit. :( 1) I went to the manufacturer's website, and their picture of the box for model #11353 says #6 screws. Six #6 screws. https://www.easyanchors.com/products/twist-n-lock 2) I checked the description of the product on the Home Depot website, and it says #6 as well. So, the manufacturer messed up!! Unbelievable. One more trip to the store for me. I hope they work well. If they do, I'll update my review (if HD lets me).

    Very easy to use drywall anchors
    I never liked having to drill a hole for the anchor and then push the anchor in, these self drilling anchors take that step away. The anchors comes pointed so you don’t have to worry about making the hole away from your mark. The only downside is the hole this creates is much bigger, but any size hole requries patching later so not much of a problem for me.

      Plastic becomes brittle after a few years in a hot garage, and breaks while screwing into the wall. Happened twice in a row with 1/2” drywall. Suggest buying in small quantities and not storing in hot garage.

          used these to anchor the center brace of a curtain rod into drywall. works like a charm. there was an existing hole from a nail that had failed to hold up the center of the curtain rod -- it was large enough to insert this anchor and screw in the curtain rod support bracket. holds center of rod in place securely.

          I have used these in the past and find them to be difficult to install about half the time. Don't know if it is me or the product. When installed it does the job. Just difficult for me to install properly.

            They suck.
            I've predrilled and I've chosen lengths based on my project and I've screwed them in by hand and I'd estimate that 90% not only fail, but leave you with a bigger problem than just not being able to hang something. I got a whole bunch for free, leftover(?) from a business rehab, or abandoned because they don't work. I'm not even sure why I kept trying them, maybe because I got free spackle as well.

              These are so easy to use and are very strong in simple drywall. I also like that you can hear a click when the screw is in far enough for strong anchoring. Used to hang some expensive, heavy framed art and am very happy with the results. Great product.

              better to use toggle bolts
              not very easy to install, does not cut through drywall without having to apply excessive pressure, which can lead to tip breaking off and causing alignment and hold issues. there is a reason they still sell toggle bolts, so best to use them instead.

              Work great!
              I just used these to hang a shelf and they were easy to use. The employee at the store informed me that when the anchor is flush to the wall, do not screw anymore. That's when it will break or go directly into the drywall. I did just as he said and had no issues. These are so much better than having to pre-drill.

                Works with Modifications
                An employee in store recommended I use these to hang a 24x30" mirror. I read the reviews here just before using to make sure I did it right - these things look like they could do a lot of damage and I have little room for error. After reading through the reviews, I decided to drill the screw in first to make a hole for the anchor, then I broke apart the tip of the anchor and screwed it in. The screw went in just fine and no damage was done. I am happy with these.

                  breaks apart
                  These self drilling anchors were a total mess. I have a 1950's home and the drywall seems to be a little stiffer than new homes. I still pre-drilled holes to make sure they went in properly, but they would not grip easily. There were no studs behind. I had to use a lot of pressure to get them to grip. Afterwards, I got it to grip, it would not drill itself. It eventually wore itself out (as in the plastic is too soft). One of them ended up breaking inside the wall half way in too.

                    Junk
                    These used to be pretty good within their limited range of use. Now the manufacturer has done something to the plastic compound the anchor is made of and they are hard and brittle. When I tried to run the screws into the anchor and they bind up. When you try to remove the screw the anchor breaks into pieces. This happened twice, so I don't think it was an accident.

                    NOT FOR ME
                    Followed instructions. I went to install metal screw and it twisted the anchor all the way through the drywall. Now I have an anchor size hole in drywall.Now its a bigger repair. Too much torque on screw to plastic. I wouldnt recommend. My skill level is above average DIY.

                    Great product
                    After getting home from the store and reading the reviews I was a bit nervous about using these. I first tried one in a scrap of drywall and it worked flawlessly. Not sure what all the negative reviews are about. I was MORE than impressed with how easy they are to use. I started slowly so that tip would cut into the drywall, and then once the wider treads made contact I put a little more pressure on, and it went in smoothly. Used them to secure a 1/4" mirror. Very pleased.

                    Keep breaking
                    I've managed to get a few of these into my wall, but I'd say 75% of them break, leaving large, useless holes in the drywall. I pre-drill the holes, I widen the hole with my screwdriver to get the anchor going, etc, but even so, once the anchor starts to catch into the drywall it breaks off. My husband has the same problem. I think we'll have to drag ourselves back to Home Depot for some better anchors.

                      Used all 6 without breaking the plastic anchor
                      Some reviews complain of the plastic anchor breaking. So I used the metal screw to prepare a hole first. The anchor went easily into the hole. While screwing the anchor, it does feel delicate. With the right pressure on the screwdriver, I was able to get all 6 in.

                      Look Elsewhere or Pre-drill Holes
                      I purchased these to hang up a coat rack in my daughter's room. I tried screwing the anchors directly into the drywall as instructed. I broke 3 anchors before I could get 2 to work correctly. Unfortunately, that left me with 2 anchor-sized holes in my wall that I couldn't use and instead had to cover up. If I had to use these again, maybe pre-drilling the hold would be the solution, but I can't say for sure.

                      New & Improved....NOT!!!
                      This new design, with the split plastic anchor, is simply junk! Fortunately, I had a few of the OLD design anchors, without the split in the plastic anchor, on hand so I could actually complete my project. I tried three of these "newly improved anchors" into half inch drywall, and each one broke apart without full penetration into the wall. I was disgusted with the poor research done by the company (Buildex) that put these anchors on the market. I am able to make this statement because I found a few of the old style anchors (without the split) that I had stashed away, and I was able to screw three in a row into the same half inch drywall without any problems. Remember the old saying: " If it ain't broke...don't fix it!" ? Buildex should apply that principle, and they would have much happier customers! This product is truly a "Swing and a Miss!" Returned for a refund!

                      Hang items where needed
                      Simple product to use. I often pre-drill a small pilot hole before screwing this into the wall. All you really need for installation is a good #2 philips screw driver. I often replace the screws for different length(s) as needed based on the item I am installing to prevent the "split tip" as noted by other users.

                      Best anchor for drywalls, period!!!
                      I've been trying to keep a towel bar in my bathroom to stay put for years by using those regular blue plastic anchors, but they keep on falling off and leaves a bigger hole because of its tapered design. The E-Z Ancor Twist-N-Lock are the solution. Now my fixtures stay put and tight on the wall with virtually zero movement! I'm going to change out all the other plastic anchors around the house for these E-Z screw-ons (especially for the surround-sound satellite speakers) because they will NOT fall out unless you unscrew them. Note: if you have thicker walls, snip out the tips (where it crack open) before screwing in to prevent it from opening and messing up both the product and your wall.

                      A failure to improve
                      This anchor seems to be an attempt to improve on what is a relatively simple idea. For some reason the developers decided that having designated fracture points down the length of the anchor would be a good idea (!?!). I am guessing that this worked well in their lab but in my real world application it is nothing but failure. Maybe the drywall they are using is only 1/4"? I am pre drilling my holes. sending a 1/4" LAG bolt 4" deep into a piece of drywall to be certain there is nothing behind the drywall to impede its funciton. Then, as I carefully insert this anchor by hand, as the resistance grows and torque is needed to truly set this in the wall tightly and correctly, the unit splinters and now, I get to dig a shredded piece of plastic out of my drywall. As if anchoring in a nice piece of drywall didn't already have its own issues, now I have a mangled 1/2" hole. For the record, the simplest variant of this type of anchor, which for some reason Home Depot decided to stop stocking in their stores, works perfectly. None of the on-anchor drill tip garbage. no splintering. just screw it in and use it. Again, I am sure it worked for a certain application, but not mine. and I am paying for it. Good Luck
