3. Anchor will extrude up to 2x its original length, sealing the hole and providing highest holding power. For best results, use a screw gun for installation in solid walls.

If you hit a hidden cavity, the screw opens the anchor and locks securely.

3. The screw opens the anchor and locks the screw thread into the anchor's "teeth" to resist vibration and shock, providing secure holding in hollow walls.

This enables you to drill anywhere in the wall and not worry if it is hollow or solid.

NOTE: Not recommended for hollow ceilings. In hollow ceilings, use our TOGGLER® Plastic Toggle Anchor or our SNAPTOGGLE® Toggle Bolt.
