Can these hold up a 50lb 65inch TV? If I use 4 of them with washers on the screws?

Asked by Ryan January 31, 2021

Answers

No I would not try this on your television. Sheetrock can easily crumble allowing your television to fall off the mount. Search for alternate mounting options like a wood backing that is attached to the studs and then your mount is attached to the wood.

will these anchors work with q/4 in. paneling over the sheet rock

Asked by Webbman January 30, 2021

Answers

You would have to drill thru the paneling first as the pilot tip on the anchor would not make it thru. I would drill the hole in the paneling the same diameter as the anchor, then proceed with installing the anchor.

Remove the screw from the anchor and then unscrew the anchor. Most come out easily. Others you may need to work with a bit to get them to back out. To patch the hole, that the handle of pliers or something and make sure the edges of the hole are pushed in to form a bit of an indent. That will allow you to patch quickly with drywall mud or wood putty and sand them off nice and smooth.

If you are using these on drywall the thickness and quality of the drywall would be the factors I would focus on. There is no way that I would trust a 75 pound loan on one of these. Anything over 15-20 pounds on a single ancor would be a stretch under any circumstances.

Pre drill holes for easier installation. Other than that. Get these the hold what you need on the wall.

No studs are needed. I've been using these for a couple of years now for drywall hangups. They work perfectly!

I now have a giant hole in my wall.
I was trying to install a closet rod on a bracket. It completely ripped out of the wall before I ever even put any weight on it. I was holding the shelf in one hand and attempting to put a 1/2" screw through the shelf into the bracket. I'm now worried about every other shelf I've already installed with these around my house.

Excellent and easy! It was great not having to drill pilot holes and them hammer in the plugs. Used these to support 5 foot long shelves. Have not loaded the shelves up yet, but so far so good!

The concept is great, but, as with sheetrock it is hard to win. Trying to put in their smaller screws made their big white screws twist in the wall. I had a screw tapped into the side for the original screw to go in. And I was able to take out my side screw and it was okay. I don't know if was the size of their whole or just because they had cheap half inch sheetrock on my wall. I put 7 screws to hold up a TV. And I pulled on it. So far so good. Hopefully the little spreading it did was enough to make it hold 75 lbs per screw. So I don't know if it's a total of 75 pounds per screw or is 75 lb total no matter how many you put in the wall. It doesn't specify. If they had a better way for it to bite and not turn while I put in there screw. I would have gave them five stars. Otherwise than that it was just like any other anchor that twists on you.

These are great light duty hollow wall anchors and are easy to use. Tip: Pre-drill with a screw first for more accurate placement and this will verify whether there’s a stud where you’re about to install the anchor. If you do hit a stud, you don’t need the anchor and you can simply use an appropriate screw to fix your installation into the stud location. Otherwise, the screw hole will make a nice pilot hole for the self drilling anchors. It’s best to drill these in at a low rpm for consistent results, as sometimes they will melt a little at the tip one not drill in well with higher rpm. Approximately 300 rpm seems to achieve consistent results. If you overdrive them they will pull the drywall between the threads out and create a large hole while pulling all the way through the drywall panel. This is another reason to drive them in with careful control and lower rpm. I like to use the clutch on my driver, starting with lower settings. These can be used with any screw from #6-#10 (2.5-5 for metric) as long as a minimum of 1”-1,⅛” (25-28mm) of the screw is able to drive into the fastener and expand the back of the anchor, which you’ll be able to hear as a ‘pop’ or ‘click’ sound for verification. These can be driven with PZ2, PZ3, PH2 and PH3 driver bits.

These are the easiest drywall anchors I have ever used - just screw into the drywall using a #2 phillips bit with no pre-drilling required. Tighten to be flush with the wall or even countersunk a little. They seem to hold very securely.
