elfa Drywall & Plaster Anchors
Seriously heavy duty drywall anchors
I installed some fixed elfa standards for shelves with some of these anchors. I filled the shelves with heavy reference books and, they held up perfectly. The only problem I had with these anchors was when I tried removing them - some of them would absolutely not come out of my plaster walls.

Sturdiest anchors I have EVER used
These things could probably hold a tank to the wall. They are VERY well designed and work perfectly!

Good hardware for the job
Have installed 6 Elfa systems and count on the mounting hardware to be solid. These anchors really do the job. Highly recommend following the directions, having correct drill bit size and a good power drill/driver. I set the drill driver tension to "3" (low) on my Dewalt cordless driver to avoid over-tightening or stripping the anchor.

Good anchors with one flaw
We just bought our first elfa system for our nursery and I consider myself a do-it-your self type of person, so I was confident I could handle installing this entire system after reading all the directions and watching all the videos. Measuring the location of the holes was easy enough and drilling the holes a bit larger did make getting these anchors into the walls much easier as I did feel hammering them into the wall would break them, however, when it came time to tightening them up, that is where the trouble started. The directions say to use a power screw driver for 20 seconds and it should start getting tight. For the first one, it did, however, as I did the next 6, i could barely get 10 seconds in when the anchor and bolt would start popping out of the hole. it was almost like the bolt was not catching in the anchor even though i initially started tightening the anchor with a hand screw driver. in just about every case, I had to hand tighten all 6 of the remaining anchors.
These anchors do work and i am very confident they will hold up my system quite well, but I have never had such a difficult time getting the bolt started and finished.
