Drywalll anchors Pretty good little anchors, if you can get them into the wall. Had to re-drill the hole several times. They are a bit flimsy and would bend or break when hammering in. Yes I used the recommended drill bit size. Once in though, they seem to do their job fairly well. I purchased more than I actually needed so I had enough even though a few broke. January 17, 2012
Excellent, but needed a tweak I have thick drywall where I installed my Elfa system, but it is also Notorious for breaking down and dropping wall shelves onto the floor. These anchors fix that problem. However, please note that the recommendation of using a 3/4 drill bit for the holes is a little off. The anchors don't quite fit with that bit. I hammered away at them to see if they'd go in, but they just wouldn't. So what I did was set the bit back into the hole and drill while rotating around in a circle to give just a teeny bit more space. The anchors went right in and all was well. Be careful not to make the hole too big. It took some trial and error, but it worked. February 27, 2012
Great Anchors I have thick plaster with drywall on top, and usually have trouble mounting things. These were a breeze to install and don't even appear to budge! A great, solid product! Leave the mollies at the hardware store. March 19, 2012
Great improvement to good anchors I have used this product for 5 years now and love it. It says to drill with a 3/8" drill bit, and the bolt is actually a tad bit larger. I use the drill bit generously and it slips right in. Better to be tight then loose, so I do not consider this a negative. The anchors seem different than prior years and feel better than the old ones. I had both for my last project so I was able to compare them non scientifically. March 4, 2012

Answer: 
Anchors will not be able to be pulled out from the wall, so it is best to push the anchor directly into the drywall and let it fall from behind the wall. Please call with any questions at 1-800-733-3532.

Answer: 
I've moved 6 times in the past decade with elfa systems in every locale. Here's what has worked best for me:

1. With a pair of needle-nosed pliers, grab onto any part of the anchor's collar. You may need to work the end of the pliers against the wall to get a grip.
2. Pull and twist until that part of the collar snaps.
3. Repeat 2-3 more times along other parts of the collar. It'll look like a scraggly mess and the collar will be fragmented into 3-4 parts.
4. Push the collar fragments all together into the center and push them through the hole into the wall.
5. Patch and paint.

Good luck!

Answer: 
Weight capacity can be affected by many things like wall construction, the items stored, & the installation process itself. Therefore, we do not have a published weight capacity of any one elfa product. When installed properly and used with the elfa system of hardware, hang standards, brackets & shelves, it will support a considerable amount of evenly distributed weight such as an entire library of books, a complete entertainment system, a pantry full of food, or a playroom full of toys & games.

For a more detailed answer to your question, please give us a call at 800-733-3532 so we can help you evaluate what your particular storage needs & location might necessitate.

What are these made from?

Can you tell me what the material construction of these anchors is? Looks like plastic but just want to make sure rubber/latex free as I have a latex allergy. Thanks!

Do these need to be screwed into studs?

I have plaster walls in a 14 story high rise building. There aren't any wood studs in the walls. Will the plaster be sufficient to hold things safely?

I am wondering about what would need to be done if I happened to strip one of the screws, for example the fourth of five screws I will be using, and needed to remove that anchor and install a new one. In that case I would need to remove the three previously installed screws to have access to the fourth screw that I messed up on.
