Really strong drywall anchor for shelves?
Asked Apr 13, 2008, 08:22 PM
I need a REALLY strong drywall anchor.
I use the EZ anchors a lot for pictures, and other light to moderate stuff
I want to put up some shelves for books, 24" wide and 10" deep using some small-ish, unimposing brackets. Unfortunately, the studs are just not in convenient locations.
Is there anything out there that can hold a lot more than the usual 30 lb. anchors? I recently came across the Toggler SnapScru and the EZ anchor version which look promising. They say they hold up to 75 lb, but that is shear strength, and I need "pull" strength as well.
Any experience with these? Anything else out there?
