Use these for larger mounting jobs. These use ¼” inch bolts and the toggle bots are pretty big, demanding a hole about ⅝” be drilled through the drywall.
The bolts are three inches long.
It is nice to see Phillips head drive on the ends as the older style using a flat slot were a pain to thread in with a power tool.
Shear load is 120 lb on half inch drywall and 85 lb on hollow block.

EVERBILT 1/4 in. x 3 in. Zinc-Plated Toggle Bolt with Round-Head Phillips Drive Screw (10-Piece) is a standard fastener for hollow walls. Toggle bolts have been around for a while and do a good job. They work in drywall and old construction lathe walls. I have lathe walls in my house and find them more secure than other types of fasteners. I've used a set of these size toggle bolts to hold up a large shelf filled with books for decades, still holding solidly. These Everbilt toggle bolts are standard and are no different from others. I've used. I've bought and used Everbilt toggle bolts at Home Depot before in their variety pack.
For those who haven't used them before, they are single use fasteners. Once they go in the wall they can't be removed without making the hole much larger so just push them in the wall, clip the screw and use another fastener, if needed. You don't need to over stress them to set in the wall. They have excellent holding power.
I have used these 1/4 in. x 3 in. Zinc-Plated Toggle Bolts with Round-Head Phillips Drive Screws in a (10-Piece) package for many years and they are about as handy of a bolt as you can get to secure towel racks and toilet paper holders and cabinets and many other things tightly to your walls . The package states they can secure as much as 120 pounds with 1/2 inch drywall shear and hollow block shear to 85 pounds . They are very fast and easy to install and will last for a long time .
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy
i honestly can't say anything good about this product. It's literally made from the softest metal i have ever seen. the screw heads strip out the moment any pressure is applied to them. bolts don't hold well, and pulled back out through the drywall. just not pleased at all.
