About This Product

These toggle bolts are anchors for use in hollow walls and hollow masonry applications. The toggle bolt's wing spreads the force over a larger load bearing surface and comes attached to a machine screw. Toggle bolts are single-use anchors and should be properly positioned prior to pre-drilling the hole.

      A:  3/8" drill

      by|Apr 16, 2019

      A:  3/8 inch hole is a tight fit, this is good for sheet rock. For wood you need a hole that is 7/16 for a snug push in. For metal and other non flexible material, make the hole an 1/2 inch for an easy insert.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  Go with size bigger

                      by|Jun 13, 2019

                        A:  These have a shear strength of 70 pounds each. So 4 of these bolts will not fail to hold a 70pound load. However any force applied to the bolts will transfer to the dry-wall / sheet-rock, 3/8 inch sheet rock has a resistance up to 60 pounds of force perpendicular to the wall, so if you have 3/8 inch or thinner wall, and someone pulls on the shelf, then the leverage could damage the sheet-rock and loosen the shelf.

                          A:  The working load limit for the anchors are 70 pounds.

                            A:  The working load limit for the 1/8 in. x 2 in. Zinc-Plated Mushroom-Head Toggle Bolt Anchor is 70 lbs. shear in drywall. Increasing the number of toggle bolts will distribute the weight but does not increase the working load limit.

                                These go in easy and can work in shallow walls. Our walls are 1/2" wallboard 3/8" tile and 1 1/2" deep before we hit concrete. These work and hold well and are the best option for the job I had to do with the anchors. I used these to put in medicine cabinets and they hold well.

                                The package was extremely attractive! I did have slight difficultly opening it but quickly resolved by the use of a Gerber pocket multitool. I was impressed with the simple, yet modern, design of the product. I was extremely careful to follow the directions carefully. Installation in standard drywall was quick and very neat despite several layers of latex paint. The product holds a standard curtain rod very well. The package was fully resealable. I recommend this product abd would certainly buy it again!

                                An old standard. Have used these several times in the past. The are the ideal size to hold up objects that aren't extremely heavy, but still need more support than other options might give.
