SNAPTOGGLE Heavy Duty Toggle Bolts Packaging

Our SNAPTOGGLE® anchors get their name from their speed and ease of use—they work in a SNAP!

The third generation of our patented SNAPTOGGLE anchors has these improvements:

  • new longer and stronger plastic straps that now work in base materials 3/8" to 3 5/8" thick and will not break prematurely like other plastic straps
  • straps that snap off flush with the wall every time, assuring precise alignment
  • a new plating that is 7x more corrosion-resistant than B633-85 Type III/Sc 1 government spec zinc plating
    [Also available in RoHS-compliant plating and in stainless steel]

  • Smallest drill hole for each bolt size—1/4" wing toggle needs 50% larger hole

  • High strength—holds up to
    2x the load of an old-fashioned wing toggle of same bolt size

  • Reusable in same hole
    remove the bolt without losing the anchor

  • One-person installation
    like having an extra pair of hands behind the wall

  • Insulation pushed aside
    by metal channel

  • Does NOT destroy wall or ceiling—plastic cap & metal channel centers bolt & prevents abrasion

Holding ValuesAdditional Information
Most major manufacturers of hand rails and of TV mounts either package the SNAPTOGGLE anchors with their products or specify them for installing their products.

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
