A toggle wing anchor, also known as a toggle bolt or butterfly anchor, is a type of fastener used to secure heavy objects to hollow walls, ceilings, or other surfaces where there is no solid support behind the material. Toggle wing anchors are designed to distribute the load over a larger area, making them suitable for applications requiring significant holding strength.
Toggle wing anchors are commonly used for hanging heavy objects such as shelving units, mirrors, and light fixtures on drywall, plaster, or other hollow surfaces. They are available in various sizes and weight capacities to suit different applications.
It's essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when installing toggle wing anchors to ensure they provide the necessary holding strength and stability for the intended load. Overloading a toggle wing anchor or improperly installing it can lead to failure and damage to the wall or surface material.
