Best Toggle Bolt?


Hey guys, I have a very Expensive Light to hang over a more expensive reef aquarium. Im wanting to have 2 hangers in the ceiling but might end up settling for 3 to be on the safe side. The light is 48'' long and roughly 35lbs.

Im looking for the stongest togglebolt around, maybe somthing with extra long or multiple wings.

THANKS!

Best Toggle Bolt?


http://www.toggler.com/products/snaptoggle/overview.php

The "industry standard safety factor" is 4 so if you have to hold up 35# you should have a fastener that pulls out at >140#.
If you use four of these fasteners each one should pull out at >35#.

The lowest factor I've heard of is 1.3, and if personal safety is involved, like for a flywheel that may explode, they use 10 to 13.
