FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Wall Anchors

No, not boat anchors, wall anchors, those little plastic doodads that hold things in or on drywall. I suspect that you have bent one or two, as I have, when trying to pound one of those plastic screw like sleeves into a hole you have drilled in the wall. They hold ok but in my experience, I always have to have a few spare for the ones I bend.

Technology has listened and there are now some very interesting alternatives.
The Wall-Dog is easy to use and holds well. They look durable and go in fairly easy. Popular Mechanics tested them and were pleased with their performance.

The WallClaw is more complicated and take more vigor to install. They tested very well and held some serious weight.

I have just spackled over some holes left by removing molly bolts, these seem like much better solutions.

Check out the October 2007 issue of Popular Mechanics for more complete test results. This was not a paid blog.
