Although ALLIGATOR® All-Purpose Wall Anchors may look like ordinary plastic plugs, they function very differently to hold more weight than most concrete anchors and masonry anchors made out of metal.
Thanks to the ALLIGATOR anchors' unique, patented design, they can even hold more than most chemical, epoxy, and adhesive anchors. [For holding values see below. For full information, click here for the technical bulletin.]
Metal concrete anchors can't work when they hit a cavity, because they need something solid to push against. In unexpected cavities (like hollow brick or hollow block) and in hollow walls (like tile over drywall or in drywall itself), the screw opens the ALLIGATOR anchor and locks its thread into the anchor's teeth to resist pull-out and vibration. This makes the ALLIGATOR All-Purpose Wall Anchor the solution to your fastening problems.
