Which Drywall Anchor is Best? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 15 April 2019
  • Buying the right drywall anchor can be challenging with so many options and weight ratings. Anchors tested include EZ Ancor Dyrwall and Stud Anchor, Toggler High Performance Anchors, Toggler SnapSkru, Everbuilt Hollow Wall Anchor, Blue Hawk Toggle Bolts, E-Z Ancor Drywall Toggle Anchor, Toggler Snaptoggle BA. I'm not sponsored by any of these brands. I purchased all the drywall anchors and supplies for this video using my own funds.

    All these test only involved constant pressure. What about impact forces? Say i hang a shelve and someone tosses a bag of dog food on it or something.

    Would have loved to see a regular anchor you get in most items you buy.

    I appreciate the tests and video, but would the test results be different it the force was pulling out instead of up?

    In the words of Phil Swift, that's a lot of damage!

    I think it's clear all the anchors are fine and it's the drywall that's failing

    which would be best to anchor a 40 pound bookcase to the wall?

    It's not the anchors that are exceeding or failing, it's the drywall that fails once pressure exceeds maximum strength specs.

    Great video and appreciated efforts. I wonder if a part two would be testing each anchor as a pair. Like when putting up a shelfWill the rating of two (or three) be a direct multiplier of the anchors. Will two Toggler Snaptoggle BBs give 448lbs of load (224lbs for one)?

    I found a type of anchor different from all thoses who have been tested in this video, they are all metal and i buy them at home hardware(canada), they are the best of all, i try a lot of those, and they are the best, you need to instal them with a hammer, and they just leave a line in the drywall, and thet espand when you srew the screw inside

    Good trade always ask if anything major heavy will be hung and then fit good timber in that area .

    Only one question--- how does it compare to a nail or screw with no anchor? Great video!

    Would it have been possible to "Torque" each screw/anchor the same ?

    You clearly have never heard of the wingit drywall anchor. I'd bet it's better than all the anchors you tested.

    Man you're going to need a laboratory and some PhDs working there soon. When you run out of testing all the wife's tales and garage Joe's opinions of what's better what isn't.. you'll have to move to solving our galaxy's most asked questions!

    Of course there is going to be alot of damage. Frankly if it doesn't destroy the drywall on the way out I'd consider it a bad anchor.

    Honestly it also depends on the thickness of your sheerock

    I use studs. It annoys my wife because it takes so long. When I put up a shelf, you can sit on it. You can also use our towel rack as a hand rail. The one shelf she put up, with finish nails, will fall off if you touch it. She said " it only needs to hold my Hummel figurines ". I don't go NEAR it.

    Problem with this test is objects won't be pulling up but down

  • Dan Africk

    I figure the more damage it does, the better the fastener is working. More damage means it's spreading the force over a greater area of wall, which is what you want. That's why the strongest anchors cause the most damage when they eventually do pull out.Also note that most of these failures is really a failure of the wall, not the anchor itself. An anchor failure would be if the anchor pulls out of the wall without taking a bunch of the wall with it.. (for comparison think of the crappy plastic expansion anchors that are ubiquitous, and have no wings, toggles, or any other mechanism to keep them from pulling out other than simple expansion- those will always fail due to the fastener itself.)

    You forgotten 2 other anchors. Wingits master anchor super duty, and Geefix anchors. Supposedly both are rated for 300+ pounds. Can you review and test these too?!?

    I always say, if you're going to out something heavy on a wall or ceiling, put 2"x4" or wonder backing. Never trust a toggle for a lot of weight.

    I can't believe the tremendous effort, yet the anchor commonly accepted as the strongest (WingIts) -- wasn't tested?!?

    I would love to see the little push in plastic ribbed anchors tested that come packaged with some products.
