toggle bolt anchors or drywall anchors???


Hi everyone,
Is it better to use a NYLON TOGGLE ANCHOR or Expandable Metal Wall Anchors on sheetrock when installing curtains.
Thanks!

This kind:

After they are installed, your curtain rod support screw goes right into it

I'd say depending on weight and use... if you have to pull or tug on the curtains regularly, my preference is the toggle bolts. They are stronger...
