If you can picture this wall that I have nailed on top of my work bench is a sample wall that you would find inside your home. Half inch dry wall, hollow in behind and now you would like to hang something on that wall. What sort of toggle, what sort of anchor do you use? There is such a variety that are there in your local building supply store but it is very important to get the right one because if not then you could have a real accident looking for somewhere to happen.
Here for an example is a plastic wall plug. Now, the plastic wall plugs are use for I call it late duty work, something puffy like a coat hook or something in the form of maybe a trophy shelf, that type. Now, some people because they are plastic, because they are pointed on the end, they very simply take to the wall, hit them with a hammer, and bash them in. That is not the proper procedure to do it all. What you are going to do is drill a hole, the same size as the shaft which is approximately 3-16th of an inch in this particular case and the top being about quarter inch which will now fit in nice and neat to the face of the wall. So, we will drill a hole now 3-16th of an inch and then I will tap it in with a hammer.
Now, here is another type of plastic wall plug that is use for an anchor and as you could see it has fluting on the side as well as it got a ribbing on the bottom, heavier duty, yes. But it is still not into a heavy duty by any means but they are installed exactly the same way approximately quarter inch on the shank and up to the top here where about 3/8 of an inch so what we will do, we will drill a hole now, one quarter inch and we will tap that in.
Now, this one here is a hole-well anchor but this was called the easy anchor. Now, it is really fast to put in. As you notice, it has got a very coarse thread and also a very sharp point and it is being a Philips. And there we have the Philip screw driver. Now, this one is that simple. You take it to the wall. You push, you very simply turn, you are screwing out right in to the dry wall, and make its own hole, and that coarse thread gives you a nice tight finished to the drill wall all ready for the screw to go into place.
