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.

    One trick i learned years ago to remove the toggle anchors from drywall, you must start to remove the screw then put a flathead screwdriver under it on the threads and unscrew the fastener preferably with a cordless drill, once completely removed the the anchor falls down into the floor on the otherside of the drywall.

    Seems that the more force, the more damage. Perhaps it would be better to use 2-3 distributed anchors when possible

    Apartments use 1/64" drywall. Put anything into it, and the entire building will collapse.My neighbors can hear me blinking.

    Perhaps next time show how these walls anchors can be removed. Would be good to know which ones are easy or not.

    Good video on why you should build a house, not glue one with drywall. Bricks FTW!

    Interesting demonstration, but is the fact that the pressure you exerting on the anchor is upward as well as outward factor into the amount of damage done? Most anchors are designed for resisting linear pressure perpendicular to the wall surface not parallel to it which could tear the paper that goes it strength. Once you weaken the paper the anchor will fail and the damage is magnified.

    Idea: would it be nice to test various types of welding materials? Of course that requires being able to weld, but hey, it's an idea. Also testing the strength of the weld?

    You could test which dry wall screws have more hold power

    How difficult would it be to drill out those non-plastic anchors if you had to remove one?

    Another great review Todd, just added myself as a Patreon supporter :). Only other thing that I would have added to this review is how easy each anchor can be removed (intentionally and if doable) and and how much wall repair if needed.Thanks for these amazing reviews, keep it up.

    would pulling at a 45 degree angle be more like a real life test of objects hanging on the wall?

    I remember being a kid and hearing a huge crash in the house. Walked out to the kitchen and there were cabinets and dishes all over the floor. The builder apparently didn't do the math correctly. What a mess!

    The ones that spread out in 2 directions should be installed so they spread out horizontally, instead of vertically (as in some of the ones shown in the video,) so that gravity pulls down on a larger area of drywall, increasing the weight it can hold.

    Just used two snap toggle fixings with two heavy duty hooks to hang a 35lb mirror and it's rock solid. Thanks for the test helped me buy with confidence.

    There's obviously a correlation between an anchor's holding strength and the amount of damage that occurs when it fails. More holding strength = more failure damage. Because of the makeup of drywall, the strongest anchors require a larger back brace, which leads to a bigger hole when it fully breaks through.

    Sliding isn’t really a failure of the anchor though, it’s a failure of the drywall, because the bolt started sliding through the drywall. You should have turned the drywall horizontal and pulled they anchors out of the wall to test the anchors. Had a anchor last night pull out of the wall so that’s why I’m watching.

    They make studs for a reason. I understand pictures and maybe 10-15 lbs.. But seriously.

    I feel like all of these "failures" are more about the drywall itself and not the product. I mean, I dont care what the packaging says, the drywall is not going to like you putting 100 pounds of pressure on it regardless of the design of the anchor.
