SnapToggle anchors
« on: January 16, 2010, 12:36:20 AM »
Hey check out these SnapToggle bolts by Toggler.  I haven't used them but the design looks very very clever.  I'm not sure how long they have been around.  I'm used to using the regular toggle bolts which are a PITA.

The video gives a pretty good idea of how they work.  You don't need to drill a huge hole, and you don't need a super long bolt either.  I also like how the anchor doesn't dig into the backside of the drywall

By the way I saw them at Big Lots packaged with a Zircon stud finder

I main thing I don't like about toggle bolt is they require a large hole. They look easier to use. Interesting.

That's exactly right, according to their website.  Regarding the standard "wing" toggle bolt:

"Smallest drill hole for each bolt size—1/4" wing toggle needs 50% larger hole"

Wow, that looks like a great product!

I've used Toggler products before and found them to be highly innovative, but I think that this really represents how well they've been able to think outside the box.

Another cool feature is that you can remove the bolt, but the anchor stays in place, so if you need to mount in the same place, the anchor is still there.
I don't think you can retrieve the anchor though
