    The E-Z Ancor Toggle-Lock's were easy to set and held the mounting racks I was using them for. Excellent product, easy to use, and holding my speakers where they belong.

    Worked perfectly for holding shelves. Think other peoples issue was not tightening on them long enough to get the anchor pulled tight. Simply used a drill/driver to run them up and then hand tighten

    My wife wanted to mount some shelving (36"X14"X1") and of course it was impossible to get the brackets to line up on studs and look right so I checked into some drywall anchors. These worked perfect, they pulled the brackets up night and tight to the wall. If I had to guess, a few of the shelves are holding close to 100lbs of knickknacks. The anchors held the shelf nice and secure.

    Keep screwing!
    I'm using these to hang heavy drapes. Installation was quick and easy - press to wall, turn with screwdriver until the toggle slips through the wall, align bracket, insert long screw, and SCREW, SCREW, SCREW! I used an electric drill to screw the first 2/3 of the way SLOWLY, then finished off screwing by hand. It may seem as if the screw is freewheeling, but it is a LONG screw and will take some time for the anchor to catch and activate behind the wall. I am hanging four 10 foot black-out drapes (about 5 pounds each) using an 1" electrical conduit as the curtain rod. 4 stars for ease of use of the toggles - will update this review up or down in a few days if the drapes hold up without damaging the wall under the weight of the assembly.

      Used 8 of these to mount a 95 x 55 inch TV wall panel. All of them worked and none of them broke. I have used this for many other things including Big TV mounts and wall hooks that heavy backpacks are regularly hung from. All of them have worked and none of them have broken. I use a drill to screw them into the drywall and tighten the screw. All of them have worked and none of them have broken. I'm guessing that most of the bad reviews would fall under "user error" Sometimes you have to pull the screw out and put it back in to get it to work and after the screw is flush you have to keep tightening it until it is seated against the back of the wall. Definitely worth buying.

        DO NOT BUY IF LATH AND PLASTER. I tried these and had two problems immediately. I pre-drilled through the plaster and the lath successfully using a 5/8 drill. The bolt inserted firmly but when I tried to seat it using the #2 phillips head, the final thread on the head end gouged out the plaster and brown coat. Well, I wasn't too concerned, because in my application the holes would be hidden under an escutcheon. Then came the time to screw in the center-screws and pivot out the toggle, and of the three I needed, only one seated itself properly. As I am screwing into a ceiling, that means I now have to go up into the crawl space and figure out why this new fangled contraption isn't toggling properly. I'm glad this wasn't into a wall, or I'd never be able to see what went wrong on the other side.

          I needed a wall anchor to support a cabinet suspension steel rail. The rail was pre-perferated to accommodate the manufacture's fastening adjustment system, which required 12-inch spacing between attachment points, and my application required that the rail be mounted with it's top edge 0.9 inch from the ceiling. I needed a reasonably heavy duty anchor between studs that, when installed, would not interfere with the top plate of the wall's framing. My first choice would have been something different, but the wall framing clearance issue made this anchor the only practical choice. By rotating the EZ Anchor so that it's toggle bar was parallel to the ceiling, my clearance problem was solved. The negative reviews here were discouraging, but the positive reviews made it clear that if you understand how this anchor works, and work carefully, the result will be satisfying. The tips I can offer are similar to those in other reviews: 1) read the instructions and look at the video if things aren't clear; 2) exercise the fastener before installation so you understand how it works; 3) spray a small amount or WD-40 on the anchor and screw before installing and wipe off excess; 4) drill a small pilot hole (1/8 - inch or so); 5) drive the anchor in to the wall slowly and carefully as to not make the hole larger than it needs to be, don't over-tighten; 6) use a flat washer under the screw head if possible; 7) gently tap in the screw to pivot the toggle bar and turn slowly, no power drivers, and; 8) don't over-tighten the final installation - clamped friction is what makes the anchor work, not torque.

            Mixed quality
            I had no problem using these toggle locks in two of the four locations I attempted. But on the third, the lock mechanism wouldn't work, so the screw kept spinning in place and I had to remove the toggle lock (which had not opened) and replace. The replacement worked. In the fourth location, however, the screw never really got a tight fit in the anchor, so the anchor is stuck in the wall and the screw slips around in it. I can't remove the anchor because the mechanism is sprung. You can see what I mean in the attached photo. Fifty-fifty is not the greatest of odds, so I'd use this product with caution.

            Horrific! Do not buy this product!
            As with the other reviews I had 100% of the anchors fail when trying to use them. This product claims to support 100 Lbs the design is so poor that if you're able to get it in the wall the odds are that the product has failed and would compromise what you're hanging. I would encourage Home Depot to discontinue working with this supplier.

              E-Z Ancor 100# drywall toggle anchor
              Poor results. The set screw is designed to run down the center of the anchor and push the anchor tab into a position parallel to and behind the wallboard. After installing 3 into a shelf bracket, the set screws failed to deploy the anchor tabs which was pushed to the side on all 3 anchors. The screws bent and rendered the anchors useless. Still stuck in the wall and unable to support even a small load, the only way to remove the 1/2 deployed anchor is to pull it back through the wallboard.

                One and done. If you want to get one that works the first time and lasts, look no further. We used in the garage as well in the house. Worth the money!!!

                THE BEST Ones right here!
                I have been trying several different drywall anchors for years but this one is the best. These are made of zinc & it holds up very well and secures to the drywall very good. Excellent quality. put a small hole in the wall then lightly hammer these in and then once at the threads hand tighten. attach your shelf bracket or whatever you are hanging with the supplied screws and screw it in. you will feel it tighten as it gets close to being secured against the drywall & boom you are done.

                  terrible quality
                  I expected these to work well. Extremely disappointed in the quality of these anchors. 4 of the anchors broke when trying to set the screw at the proper depth to hang a picture, which then required moving the location of the picture to be hung since the anchor was useless. I’d give 0 stars if possible.
