Q:Can I screw this into plaster wall?
by|Oct 4, 2015
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  yes, but you should pre-drill with small drill bit and hit the wood lathe. Follow with a drywall slightly larger in thickness of the bit. This will prevent the wood lathe from splitting. May take 2 attempts because of the gaps between the wood lathe. If that is impossible, use a toggle bolt and secure with a butterfly. Follow instructions on package. This will be the strongest anchor for the hook.

Q:What is the size of the hanger? Your web page MUST be wrong because I doubt that they are 4.75 in tall. What weight are they rated for?

Answer This Question

A:  They are small and you can see from the size of the screw. They are quite strong and I use 2 of these hooks with toggle bolts to secure them to the wall to hang mirrors in excess of 50lbs.

A:  The dimensions given in the specs are likely the size of the package:-) The screws look more like 1" to 1.5" long, just from the picture

    Does the job!
    I bought these for hanging some fairly heavy pictures in my home. I made sure they went into a stud and they are rock solid. I looked at the small French cleats first, but they are $3.47 each and are rated at 40lbs. These are rated at 50lbs and cost just over 50 cents each. You can't go wrong with this purchase.

    Live in Earthquake Country? Read On....
    The screws are very good. I used a small 1/8" pilot hole and the screws (2) threaded and snugged down nicely in the drywall. At first blush, my 40 lb. artwork was secure to the wall with no screw pull-out. Since I live in Earthquake Country, I bounce anything I hang vertically after mounting. This is where the problem is. The light gauge ?brass? hooks bend easily with any pressure against the tab extending diagonally from the wall. A few 1/8"-3/16" bounces vertically and the tab bent to almost parallel with the floor. Yikes! This is not a weight or abuse issue.The metal use is simply too flimsy. At $0.56 ea. surely the manufacturer could spend $0.01 per hook more for a material that doesn't bend - like standard nail-in hangers. (odd, a cheap nail-in hanger has a heavier gauge hook although the diagonally installed nail 'rips' drywall under the weigh) Any suggestion to step-up to a more expensive hanger is not an option, nor would any notion that the lighter gauge/softer metal ensures the part is not overloaded which would cause the screws to rip from the wall even be credible. So, bottom line, probably great set for a non-earthquake area, but if you expect shakes, find another option. My choice was to use small L-brackets, bend them, and use nylon self-drilling drywall anchors and #6 Pan Head screws. Packaged options required multiple screws, relied upon multiple nails, and were also too expensive. If you don't bounce the frame the hooks seem to be fine.

      Great hooks, low profile.
      Goes into drywall real well, and pretty easy to use.
