I would suggest the ez-anchors that split open when the screw is installed. They don't all do that.Going to run out and compare the insertion depth of a molly anchor compared to snaptoggles or maybe even a light duty rated ez-anchor.
This is more for applications where I'm using a #8. Need to order up some supplies, and just want one that will work not only for hollw cavities, but tight cavities as well.
They are more forgiving with the type of fastener and you can run a screw right through them. Conversely they can explode if you try to drill them into double drywall. In that case I use my Phillips bit like a pilot drill and then drive in the wall-driller. Snap toggles are slower and more expensive than wall-drillers, wall drillers are the fastest easiest cheapest drywall anchor going and for light duty applications they are ideal.Why nylon. I assume cause those at least expand versus the metal ones....
All I carry is snap toggles. Just looking to standardize on a #8 lightweight application.
They are junk, I actually bought a bag of 300 of the plastic ones and they are complete crap. If I find it and I didn't throw them out I will send them to you. They don't pull tight and stay tight. It's hard to describe but they are only secure when you really snug them up, it's just an all-around bad design for an anchor.Going point on double rock ! It was never even on my radar
Im going to pick up a pack of Toggler TC and joe blow Molly's to compare.
These are the ones I bought a giant bag of, they are a 3/8" pilot #6/8 screw IIRC.Yeah, but we're talking abut anchors for #8 - lightweight stuff. 5/16 hole, #8 in....
No disrespect meant, Inner. Were we talking "light duty" here? Sure, they're quick, but they are the first ones to need replacing unless it's "light duty & no movement". I wouldn't use them for towel rods, TP holders, robe hooks, mirrors etc. or anything like that. Disagree?If by worst you mean best for all light duty applications I agree.
