Place item over flange. Insert bolt through item and tighten until flush against item, then stop.

Use machine screw or bolt to match thread in channel: BA (3/16"-24), BB (1/4"-20), BM5 (M5), and BM6 (M6).
Bolt length = item thickness + wall or ceiling thickness + 1/2" (13mm)

Exceeds Building Code Requirement!
Most national and local building codes require that grab bars be able to sustain 250 pounds of dead load force. The BB 1/4"-20 SNAPTOGGLE Toggle Bolt substantially exceeded that requirement, holding 360 pounds in 1/2" drywall in tests conducted by the Cornell University / Joan and Sanford I. Weill Medical College / Gerontological Environmental Modifications unit and the Eastern Paralyzed Veteran's Association in the EPVA's lab in Fort Totten, New York, in April 2002.

The SNAPTOGGLE Toggle Bolt [called the "Toggler Bolt" in these tests] was the only anchor that met this requirement when tested in drywall alone! See the test results here: www.environmentalgeriatrics.com
