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.

    Did you notice with the toggle anchors it appeared to make a difference on the hanging test if they were orientated horizontally rather than vertically?

    The slide and snap off toggle is my favorite especially since it handles plaster in old homes with ease, it's the only one that can truly seat itself against the keyed in plaster all the way to the lath

    If a stud was not available, which toggle bolt would you use to hang shelving from garage ceiling?

    I would like to see tests of those removable wall hooks with those non damaging stickers

    Would be interesting to see and compare the damage when just removing the anchors and having to fill the hole.

    "Which drywall anchor is best?" Easy: the stud.

    Great video but there's 13 1/4" between the edges of the first two studs then 14 1/2" between the studs thereafter, if they're 16" on centre, so that drywall is getting a bit more support than it'd really be getting.

    what idiot down votes a test video? how worthless is your life to down vote this? do you have a smooth sheet rock fetish and this infuriates you? Are you in the 997 strong political gypsum alliance party?

    May I suggest using a spring while pulling to simulate a loaded toggle failure?Still good job m8, love your channel.

    I use the purple toggler pack. Always worked well for me. Just go slow when driving the plastic part because you can damage the "cutting" tip. I would never use these types of anchors for something with real weight to it. Even 20 lbs I'm going to go with studs if possible.

    By the time this guy’s done kicking butt, hardware stores will carry only one version of each product; “selection” will be unnecessary because the world will know better than to buy second-best products. Well done and thank you!

    One interesting aspect is how removable the anchors are without damaging the wall. I might hand a picture but what happens if I want to move it later. Something I can easily fix with some plaster/Spackle vs something that can't be removed without a giant hole that needs a real patch job makes a big difference.

    My tenants find a way to pull anything mounted to the drywall out. Towel bars, tp holders, etc! Over the years, I've learned a lot about anchors, so this test was great to watch. I started with those cheapie push in types that you get with the hardware. Not very effective! Then I tried the screw in type and I didn't have much better luck. I then went to the old toggle bolts and they worked great. I also tried the metal ones deform when you tighten the screw and I didn't have very good luck with them. I did have good luck with the ones that come with the hardware (it's a plastic toggle that you "snap" into place, then push through the hole and use a round pin type plastic tool to push the toggle out (it snaps in place). Then you mount the object. I've found that these work about as well as the metal toggle bolts.Thanks for another great video!

    I work at a hardware store and sell these types of anchors but havent had a chance to try all of them. I really appreciate your effort in making this video.

    don't use drywall anchors just screw right into the stud the spacing is supposed to be every 16 inch.

    This is why for anything other than a small picture frame, I use studs.

    I absolutely hate use hollow wall anchors and never ever buy them

    Great video-- Could you try doing it with multiple anchors - say two 2" apart using a plate simulating a wall bracket for a towel, as and example. Or see how multiple anchors stack up to the pull force - would two anchors yield twice the holding power or would the result be exponential. Secondly - on the up pull force - did you orient the sheet rock with the fibers horizontal or parallel to the force direction? It might not make too much difference. Did you cut the sheet rock - not score snap it into squares?

    I learned all about this subject the day I used 4 anchors to mount a 4 foot long bench in the porch. I sat on it and destroyed the wall as we slid down to the floor. I felt so stupid 🤕

    If you evaluate your situation correctly regarding where/what you're hanging, common sense is the best drywall anchor

    You almost had it. All this effort wasted because of incorrect testing. This doesn't translate to real world use, at least from how I've always seen these used, when it comes to shear/tension loads--different sized shelves, weight distribution across these shelves, etc.

    Thanks for the test, I thought this was a great test. When I hung my new TV recently I just happened to go with the EZ Cam Toggle, after seeing this I think it was a good choice. Toggles > Anchors.

    I think an additional parameter to be measured is how removable each of the anchors is. You know for like when you're selling your house.
