What's your drywall anchor of choice?


I imagine that certain situations may call for certain types, like toggles, but from a general anchor standpoint?

I have been using the "EZ-Ancor" for a while now and have been happy with them. Was at the store today and saw the Cobra Triple Grip and figured I would give those a try too. Haven't used them yet though. Other?

EZ-Ancor


Cobra Triple Grip

EZ Anchor for me. No drill bit required.

3 votes for the EZ. Good point about the bit. I was going to try these Triple Grips for the heck of it, but might just return them.

Good thing about the EZ is you can remove it.....the other, not so easy

Personally, ive only used the cobra types.
They work good and are quite strong. Nothing bad to say.

I've always used the EZs, very easy to use and easy to remove if required. I've never had one pull out when used as designed.

I use something similar to the Cobra for light weight objects( have to try them).
I found the EZ will strip out in the drywall.
For heavy objects I use the butterfly.

Ron -- I'm far from a pro so I haven't used nearly the amount of anchors they have, but I haven't had any issues stripping out in drywall. Are you saying they pull through the drywall during the installation? Or when you're screwing the metal screw into them?

I love em! But I only use the zinc ones. Plastic ones are too easy to mangle for me.

Tensile strength...

From a pulling action or a void between the drywall and the product being installed the anchor will pull through the drywall.

i like those picture hangers with the nail at an angle. Then there is those kind you push in and screw down and the screw will still come out http://www.ucanfast.com/products/det...&productid=119
