To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These take some getting used to, but once you do they are fantastic. I wasted a few at first learning how to use them properly. The trick is to get it through, then wiggle and pull on it until you see it come into position (when you see the threaded hole in the center, and feel it snug against the wall, that's it! but don't pull to hard or you might break one of the arms before you have it in position). Once they are in place, they work really well. I prefer toggle bolts to any other kind of mounting hardware. I've had one too many wall anchors come out on me... but never a good toggle bolt.
I used these snap-toggles after having them recommended to me by a friend who's a carpenter. I needed good hardware anchor to attach 3 large TV mounts to a wall that was framed with metal studs.They work well under if you're careful to drill the right size hole through the drywall, then through the exact center of the metal stud. If you've taken careful measurements and/or located all the stud-centers exactly, then these will work great. They seem to be able to hold a good amount of weight and appear to be quality hardware. I've decided to remove a star because two of twelve in the package were damaged and unusable when I received them and they're somewhat pricey.
Almost works as advertised. These definitely spread the weight and make it possible to mount things directly on drywall. But there’s a limit. I could hear the metal ends dig into the dry wall and even see an entire area of the wall almost bow out. Had to add additional support in the form of books for a mount, but it did help a lot.
A downside is if you don’t accurately screw the bolt in after inserting the plastic with metal end, the bolt will push and snap off the metal end that the bolt threads into and pushes along the inner part of the drywall. You therefore have to use another one to replace the one that just broke off.
Items arrived on time and as advertised. They are sturdy and easy to use. But they arrived in a white Amazon-style heat-sealed sack with a plain white sticker indicating the Toggler brand and a stock number. I expected some sort of retail packaging but was disappointed by the cheesy bag o' bolts. It doesn't exactly provide a sense of confidence in the product.
I used these to install a bathroom grab bar without locating a stud. I recommend that you watch the video supplied by manufacture and experiment with a spare toggle to get the feel. 3 of the toggles attached very strongly, but the 4th broke off inside the wall when i pulled it tight. If you understand that they can get wonky, you will be ok. In all a very good product.
You need to be careful, as I found out 3 times. If you test the bolt to make sure it has a snug fit after snapping off the excess, do not wiggle it around at all as this might snap the remaining plastic that is holding the bolt to the drywall. I did this and they just fell off into the wall. No biggie, I just put another up and made sure it was snug and 4 of these are assisting in holding up my 65 inch TV very nicely (along with two stud bolts into one stud).
These anchors are strong and, compared to other products, they are more aesthetically pleasing thanks to the plastic cap that slides into place. However, it is easy to mess up the installation since it is a little different from other anchors; I lost 2 out of the 12 pack "learning" to install it.
I lost 1 because I pulled/pushed the cap too hard one way and the plastic guides broke. I lost another because one of the guides broke while I was trying to line up the threads of the nut. But after those two, I had no more issues.
I love these things! I was first introduced to these when they came in a above the range microwave install kit. Beware though, I was playing with them before installing them and actually ruined one. Think of them like a Zip-Tie once you slide it, it doesn't come back. That said, they're great way to have a leave in toggle bolt style wall anchor.
I used these to replace the blind hole toilet seat attachment nuts on our modern smooth sided toilet. Worked like a charm, much more reliable and solid connection than the expanding rubber ones made for that purpose. There’s no possible way to reach around to the underside of the toilet with your hand or wrench to do this with a regular nut, so this was perfect to drop it down from the top. I only needed two, but was glad I had a few extra when the very brittle plastic broke on the first one. Deducting one star for that, the plastic should not be so fragile.
These are pretty decent toggles. You have to be really careful when tightening them down, they are very brittle when pulled to any direction besides axially out. I broke at least one if not two when tightening them. Any slight pull in any other direction than directly out of the wall and they will break. I must have been pulling slightly down rather than out of the wall and broke it.
