E-Z Ancor Self-Drilling Drywall Anchor: Easy to use


from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about Buildex E-Z Ancor Self-Drilling Drywall Anchor:

If you live in a home of modern construction I'm sure you've experienced the need to use wall anchors to attach anything substantial to your drywall constructed walls.

Over the years I've tried several different wall anchors made of lead or plastic. Typically, you drill a hole, tap the anchor into it and drive a screw into the anchor. It's load capacity varies, but most get the job done. The difference, if any has to do with the ease of placement of the anchor. I'm a big fan of very easy.

About a year ago, while engaged in one project or another I found **Buildex E-Z Ancor Self-Drilling Drywall Anchor's. **Most recently I used them to secure the diagonal supports for the shelf system I installed in my wife's closet.

Unlike most other wall anchors, with the **Buildex E-Z Ancor Self-Drilling Drywall Anchor** there's no need to pre-drill holes in the wall. Each anchor has a sharp tip and a Phillips Screw Slot on it so that installation is as simple as locating the proper place for the anchor, and driving the plastic anchor directly into the wall, preferably with a power-driver. The sharp plastic construction allows it to penetrate the wall easily until it is flush with the wall.

Withdrawing the driver tip, the achor is ready to receive the included screw. The screw can be threaded with either a power driver or a common screwdriver. Each anchor is rated to support up to 75 lbs. I've actually installed a couple of these anchors with nothing more than a common screwdriver, start to finish. Impressive.

Unlike many other wall anchors I'e used, the **Buildex E-Z Ancor Self-Drilling Drywall Anchor **is easily removed by simply reversing the drirection of your drive. It does virtually no damage to the drywall and is easily filled with wall spackle.

**My Viewpoint**

**Buildex E-Z Ancor Self-Drilling Drywall Anchor's **are available at most home improvement centers and hardware stores and are quite inexpensive. If there's an easier wall anchor to use on drywall, I haven't found it yet. I recommend it.
