Our new, improved TOGGLER plastic toggle wall anchor, with its patented enhancements, provides secure holding power for light and medium loads in all walls.

Designed for optimum holding in hollow walls, such as drywall and gypsum board, the anchor locks on walls and ceilings in its grip range for vibration-proof holding.

That's why it's holding up the sprinkler system in the Tokyo subway! City officials wanted to make sure that the sprinklers would stay up during an earthquake.

The anchor also holds securely and functions as a wedge anchor when it encounters a wall thicker than its grip range ... It functions as an expansion anchor in solid walls and in wooden studs.

  • Locks on wall, forming rigid weight-distributing truss for high strength

  • Anti-rotation fins prevent spinning—anchor won't destroy wall or
    ceiling

  • All sizes install in only a small 5/16" hole

  • Largest grip range for each anchor

  • Versatile—use any size screw #6 – #14
    [TA® anchor = #8 – #12]

NOTE: A dash (-) in the chart above indicates no test result is currently available.
All anchors tested with #8 screws, except ** TB anchor in 5/8" drywall.
In that test a #10 screw was used, and the anchor was used as a wedge anchor [not toggled fully open], since the wall was thicker than the anchor's grip range.
