With traditional spring wing and gravity toggle bolts, when the bolt is removed, the wing or metal bar into which the bolt is threaded falls behind the wall. But that's not the case with the TOGGLER® BRAND SNAPTOGGLE® toggle bolt!
The SNAPTOGGLE anchor gets its name because it works in a snap. Its new longer, stronger, and more durable plastic straps work in base materials 3/8 to 3 5/8 inches thick and will not break prematurely like other plastic straps. Its straps snap off flush with the wall every time. It's a vast improvement over the version it replaced, which had a grip range of only 3/8 to 2 1/2 inches. The metal channel has a 7X more corrosion resistant plating, and it can push aside insulation.
Here's how it works:
Hold the metal channel flat against the plastic straps and push the metal channel through the hole. Pull the straps toward you so that the metal channel is flat against the back of the wall, and ratchet the collar down until it fits flush into the hole. The teeth in the straps lock into the slots in the collar to hold the metal channel in place. Then, break the straps. Now you can use the appropriate bolt to attach whatever you are mounting. That's it! A one-person job anyone can do!
* All holding values given below are per anchor with a 2 1/2"-long bolt of the same thread as the anchor (e.g., 3/16"-24, 1/4"-20, M5, etc.). All pull-out values are independent laboratory tests done according to U.S. Government standards. They should be used as guides only. The age, condition, and capacity of the substrate must be considered.
Industry standards recommend 1/4 of ultimate test load. Holding strength for a SNAPTOGGLE heavy-duty hollow-wall anchor varies directly with the strength and condition of the wall material—and inversely with variations in hole diameter and the distance of the load from the wall.
