I would recommend these for use on hollow drywall. I used a box of these to secure twin-tracks for a shelving system in our media room, and after a few weeks, everything seems to be very secure. I’ve yet to use these anchors on studs, but that can only make them stronger and sturdier. Word of advice: Heed the instructions, and don’t over tighten the anchors. Only screw them in until they are flush with the wall and not a bit more. These anchors are designed to hold on to the drywall as soon as they’re in; over tightening will only force the drywall to come loose between the anchor threads, and you will be left with an unreliable anchor. Just get them to that flush position and stop, and don’t over tighten the screws in either, as they too are not meant to be secured by force.

I use these for everything on the walls in my house that doesn't need to be attached to a stud. Picture frames, toilet paper holders, thermostats, hand towel racks, you name it. I try to hit a stud, but that's not always possible, so these things are the perfect solution. They drive just fine using a 12V drill. The genius part is, you don't even have to change the bit! A Philips bit drives the anchor into the wall, and then the same bit drives the screw in afterwards.

These things are super tough. They go right in and hold securely. I think you could screw them through the drywall if you tried. Just push and screw at the same time. Even if you're over a stud it will still screw in unlike the plastic ones.

I have an older plaster wall house that seemingly contains NO studs anywhere! Or, at least they're impossible to find, even when I give up and resort to drilling a million holes. These are a life saver! Very easy to put in, and they seem to work amazingly well so far. I didn't even get to use my whole pack yet because once my brother discovered how great they were, he stole them from me! Before finding these nifty things, I had tried every type of wall anchor under the sun. Going to stock up on these very soon, and hide them from my brother on his visits!

I admit I have not used these to secure to wood studs. I use these in hollow wall Sheetrock. You can drive them in with a manual screwdriver or use a power driver. They are medium duty. I use them to support fluorescent lighting fixtures, and also for other items such as thermostats. Never had a problem. Make sure you get the metal anchors and not plastic.

These work well in drywall but when I hit a stud, the Phillips driver socket stripped out quickly. These are an aluminum alloy and will strip out if you hit a stud so if you think this will work well in either situation, don’t count on it. Recommended for drywall only.

Never fail anchors - often need to pre-screw (tap) the anchor to avoid tightening screw after anchor is in the wall and having the anchor drive itself too far into the drywall.

I have used these metal anchors for years, they work in any material except concrete, can use in wood if you pre-drill the hole.
