Anchors Away I got an email from The Container Store asking me to write a review for these wall anchors. Really? A review for wall anchors? I mean, they either work or they don't -- what's to say? These worked. God, I would hope so -- that's what they're designed to do. But I'm writing the review anyway because I continue to be so pleased and impressed with the Elfa components we've purchased and the service I've received from The Container Store in designing my closets and coming up with great solutions. Six years down the road they still had my original plans on file and were able to help me with modifications when I moved and took my Elfa closets with them. So let's hear it for the wall anchors! June 16, 2014
Not easy to install Bought these to go with my Elfa office solution, which I love, but they were not easy to use - my wall is drywall to brick. Ended up going to the hardware store and getting a different anchor. April 21, 2014
Best Anchors on the Market As a professional organizer, I use these whenever I install Elfa shelving. I also use them any other time I need an anchor. I've never had an issue or problem and never had one come out. April 19, 2014
Shockingly sturdy drywall anchors These anchors are impressive: I have a couple hundred pounds of books and rolls of photographic paper for my office that is all supported by an Elfa track that hit only one stud and the other eight spots are all Elfa anchors. My walls are 5/8" drywall, so I cannot speak to the reviewers with negative experiences in plaster. For drywall, I have faith that these are just as good as having hit a stud. You need to have a 3/8" drill bit, and sometimes the hole needs to be rounded out a bit more. I simply used a hammer instead of the advised plastic mallet to tap the anchor into the hole. My theory being that gentle taps of a hammer are essentially equivalent: I think Elfa was convinced people would really "swing" a hammer and do more damage than good, hence the suggestion for a mallet. Your mileage may vary. I will say that the only real negative is that each anchor does take a while to install if done according to the directions: I start each one with an electric screwdriver and then switch to a hand screwdriver....but I feel like I am turning and turning for an eternity. Finally, just when my hand starts to give out, the screw won't turn any more (voila, the anchor is in place.) I suppose I am just superstitious enough about their directions that I have not chanced going further with the electric screwdriver. I have found that these are useful anchors to have on hand for other projects. When placing a 60" television on the wall (80 pounds), the bracket hit two studs: one on the extreme left end, one in the center. I wanted something to support the rightmost end of the bracket, so I popped in an Elfa anchor. The TV is still on the wall! April 15, 2014

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.

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!
